Greetings from CT Wine Authority

In honor of Mother's Day on May 9th, this week we are pleased to offer three unique wine selections to commemorate the day. Our selections consist of a delicate and refreshing Rosé, a fruit forward, easy drinking Shiraz, and a crisp sparkling Prosecco.  We hope that everyone, especially mothers, will find these wines to be delightful on their special day.

"I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me.  They have clung to me all my life."  -Abraham Lincoln

As always, please stop this Saturday for a sample of this week's featured wines.  Mothers are especially welcome!  Happy Mother's Day!


Featured Wines:
R Wines Strong Arms Shiraz 2008 750ML
R Wines Strong Arms Shiraz 2008 750ML  
sku: 11321

R Wines was founded in 2005 by Dan Philips and Chris Ringland, who have made it their passion to not only create great wines, but to package those wines with an artist's touch. Mel Kadel is the artist behind the Strong Arms labels and he creates 5 or more for each vintage, all displaying pieces of everyday life. Strong Arms is 100% Shiraz and all of the fruit for this delicious wine comes from McLaren Vale, Riverland and Barossa Valley in Southern Australia.

Robert Parker: The deep crimson-colored 2008 Strong Arms Shiraz spent 12 months in American oak. The nose offers up cedar, plum, and blackberry leading to a lush, sweetly-fruited, full-flavored Shiraz that will provide enjoyment over the next 4 years.

Tasting Notes: Sweet-fruited vibrant nose of fragrant violets, plums, cherry and musk. The palate has rich blackberry, raspberry, licorice and tar. Finishes with a creamy, vanillin oak and slightly smoky character. more

Jean Luc Colombo Rose Cape Bleue 2009 750ML
sku: 12571

Hailed as the winemaking wizard of the Rhone, Jean-Luc Colombo has achieved a high-profile international reputation for making innovative wines that are original, memorable and bursting with personality.

Colombo has turned to the vineyards of the blue cape near Marseille for the inspiration behind his latest winemaking venture. In a return to his roots, Colombo, a native of the Cote Bleue where he spent his childhood and adolescence, introduced in 2002 a new range of wines from this promontory of land overlooking the bay of Marseille. Known for its shimmering landscape this area of Provence has been captured on canvas by countless artists, most famously Cezanne. Colombo is determined to put it on the wine lover's map with his delicate, yet expressive Cape Bleue Rose.

Grape Varieties
40% Syrah; 40% Mourvedre; 20% Counoise

Tasting Notes: The color is a soft, delicate pink. The bouquet displays subtle hints of peach, rose petal and pepper on the nose. The taste is also subtle, round and full of finesse. Surprisingly complex, with intriguing notes of raspberries, fresh cherry, black olive and fennel. more

 Brut 750ML
Mionetto Prosecco di Valdobbiadene Brut 750ML  
sku: 12750

The Mionetto winery, producer of Prosecco, is located in the famous Veneto region of Italy.  The Veneto is renowned for the Prosecco grape and the ancient city of Venice.  The Prosecco zone, located in Veneto, is comprised of an area between the towns of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene. This is the only place in the world where the Prosecco grape grows.

Wine Enthusiast: A bigger style with more complex aromas that range from melon to honey to clove. An elegant product, with thick foam and golden luminosity that calls out for finger foods and antipasti. -M.L.

Tasting Notes: Intense fruity bouquet with a hint of golden apples. It is very dry, fresh, light in body and well balanced. It is perfect alone as an aperitif or as a delightful complement to appetizers such as salads, smoked meats or mild cheeses. more
