Spring fever wine tasting at Crush

To celebrate the arrival of warm temps (we hope), the red Cardinal, and folks starting to pack outdoor patios, Crush in Downtown Belmont is hosting another Friday night wine tasting tonight. No charge for tasting and the food on hand. 5:30pm to 8pm. Here are the wines on hand with descriptions from Crush's Greg Oxley:

Next Riesling, Oregon: Perfect for Spring weather this beauty is going to wow you. Aromas of citrus, floral blossom, peach, lemon, and perfume. Crisp white peaches, tangerine, floral, ripe cantaloupe, and dried apricot. This is dry Riesling from the famous King Estate in Oregon who are considered pioneers in the development and research in Oregon white grape growing. $13.99

14 Hands Merlot, Washington State: We are fanatics for Washington wines and this Merlot is a great example why. Sourced from the famous Horse Heaven Vineyards. Aromas of black/blueberry and dry mocha. Flavors of blackberries, raspberries and cherries are enhanced by a plush mouth-feel as ripe fruit characters and refined tannins unite. This is a great example of what growing quality fruit, high standards, and good quantity come together. $11.99

Screw Kappa Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, California: From the guys who call themselves "3 Loose Screws" this Cabernet knocked us out and it's from Napa! Dark garnet in color, this wine has a nose of tobacco, blackberries, and fresh figs with hints of black truffles and shoyu. It delivers classic Cabernet flavors of currants, blackberries, cherry preserves, black pepper, and cocoa with hints of marjoram, cloves, and earth. All for $13.99!

Bogle Petite Syrah,California: This is the 30th Anniversary for this wine. Overwhelming notes of ripe Summer boysenberry and blueberries resonate from the glass before you can even pick it up. Trademark inky blackberry and jammy flavors fill the mouth with black fruits. Berries, cherry and spice. Toasty oak surrounds the wine, adding notes of cocoa and leather that lingers long after the first sip is gone. Beautiful, full bodied Petite Syrah for $14.99
