FWD>Wine Tasting, Thursday, January 14th from 5 - 8 PM

Join us on January 14th from 5 - 8 PM as our friends from the Carroll Company stop in for a great wine tasting.  Here is the lineup:

Kiona Riesling - Smooth, light, spicy flavors; slightly sweet with enough acid to balance the sugar.

Hedges CMS White - A seamless combination of pear, pineapple, gooseberry, banana & wet straw on the nose, following through on the palate. Crisp acidity is balanced by sweetness of ripe fruit & a nicely viscous mouth-feel. Grapes were sourced from four Columbia Valley vineyards: Bacchus, Dionysus, Destiny Ridge & Arete. 77% Sauvignon Blanc, 21% Chardonnay & 2% Marsanne.

Serena - A fun, slightly sweet wine to be served slightly chilled. A perfect match for desserts or for sipping.

Ali Sangiovese - This is a dark ruby-color wine, with appealing scents of black and red cherries and warm spices. Juicy and tart, it's all about simple fresh-cherry fruit and zippy acidity in a nicely balanced package. Simple, low-end Sangiovese, on the modest side, but its good quality makes it a fair ringer for a decent Chianti.

Foppiano Lot 96 - The blend in this wine avails you to an unctuous, food friendly experience. Sangiovese plays a big part in structure as well as a dynamic fruit component. Soft, ready to drink and very supple. 28% Sangiovese, 19% Petite Sirah, 17% Zinfandel, 14% Carignane, 10% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc.

ChocoVine - ChocoVine is a fine French Cabernet subtly combined with a rich dark chocolate from Holland, paired together to create a decadent, silky smooth drink. It can be served on the rocks or as the main ingredient to an array of sinful cocktails.

Rum Chata - Master blender Thomas Maas of Agave Loco Brands has combined Horchata, a sweet, cold beverage made from rice, cinnamon, sugar, vanilla and real dairy cream, with five-times distilled premium Caribbean rum to create Rum Chata. The result is a creamy, smooth after-dinner drink that also helps counteract the effects of eating hot, spicy food.

This event is free and open to the public (21 and older). For more information, check out our website at
