Greetings from CT Wine Authority
Welcome to our weekly newsletter detailing information and updates on all things wine and spirits.  Look for our communications early each week for upcoming wine tastings, events, and exciting new products.  We encourage you to visit our website at www.ctwineauthority.com for wine details, rating information, to find your favorite wine, or to order directly online.

The two wines featured below will be available to taste at either of our locations this coming Saturday.  The Sonoma Cutrer has been an old standby for us and offers consistent quality throughout the vintages we have tasted.  Bodegas Finca Coronado is a new wine to us and it exhibited such a fabulous flavor profile that we figured it was a necessary addition to our stores.

Product of the famed Spanish winemaker Miguel Angel de Gregorio, the Finca Coronado 2004 is a masterful combination of Old World traditions and modern techniques. He is known for blending his wines with the hope of achieving a depth of complexity that is difficult to reach with single-varietal wines.

Wine Enthusiast: Fans of Miguel Angel de Gregorio's Finca Allende wines from Rioja will want to snap up this excellent, lush-styled blend from La Mancha. This wine almost proves that talent is as important as terroir, because no other La Mancha wine features this grape blend, these rich and pure medicinal flavors, and a smooth-handed sense of balance that calls for drinking now through 2013. -M.S.

Robert Parker: A top-notch offering from this nearly forgotten, vast viticultural region, this 1,000-case cuvee is a blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo, and Syrah along with small quantities of Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Graciano. Its inky/ruby/purple color is accompanied by smoky, creme de cassis-like aromas presented in a full-bodied, fleshy, modern, international style. Consume this reasonably priced Spanish red over the next 5-6 years.

The broad Sonoma Coast appellation features diverse soils and growing conditions perfect for exceptional Chardonnay. Warm days deepen flavors on the vine, and maritime influences from the nearby Pacific Ocean bring gentle fog to kiss the vines each day, extending the growing season to allow for full physiological maturity and rich flavor profiles. The backbone of this blend is their own estate Cutrer vineyard, where vines struggle in alluvial soils and their Grand Cru approach to viticulture practices assures that only the finest fruit is the foundation for this offering.

Distinct aromas of ginger and lemon zest are joined by toasty coconut, melon and caramel alongside a mineral, flinty cedar chest oakiness overlaid by notes of honeysuckle. Well-balanced with a solid acid backbone, the wine is rich and medium-heavy with a broad, yet firm, mid-palate. The long, lingering finish displays a touch of spice and lively acidity. Flavors of lemon, apple, pear, pineapple and cantaloupe, Sonoma's full cornucopia of fruit, join a nutty, spicy, lightly oaky profile. Fermented in oak and undergoing complete malolactic fermentation, the wine shows a mature influence by older vines and promises to evolve over time, bringing joy to both winemaker and those lucky enough to savor a glass.more
