Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits offerings:

  Cruz de Alba Crianza – Ribera Del Duero (Spain)

Tasting Notes: Promising aromas of plums, candied cherry and kirsch. It opens up to plenty of spicy compote. It shows a well-developed body and a hint of tannin with ripe fruit and excellent, balancing acidity. Pairs will with grilled rib eye or pork steaks with rich sauces, and casserole dishes.

Kunde “Magnolia Lane” Sauvignon Blanc

Tasting Notes: This is a crisp, yet smooth wine offering lemon zest and orange rind aromatics, grapefruit and yellow nectarine flavors, and lovely length across the palate.
