Earthly Rotation Tasting
Outer Space Wines’ Earthly Rotation Tasting
The daily wine tasting offered at Outer Space. Every day, all open hours. The Earthly Rotation tasting is three wines selected from Outer Space Wines’ wine selection. The wines offered change regularly.
Here’s an example of the wines offered in the tasting:
GRAPE CULTURE Sauvignon Blanc “GC Blanc” Napa Valley 2021 ($35/bottle)
“GC BLANC” Grape Culture Winery calls it. All Musque clone (that just means it’s particularly floral and tropical) from a St Helena vineyard. This is showing lots of fruit! Tropical (mango/pineapaple), citrus and orchard (pear/apple) all take a turn on your tongue. Soft, round and juicy, the “GC Blanc” is very much a crowd pleaser! 150 cases made.
POST & VINE “Old Vine Field Blend – Testa Vineyard” Mendocino 2018 ($32)
Napa Winery Post & Vine goes north to Mendocino’s Redwood Valley for these grapes. “The bright, pretty, invigorating Post & Vine Old Vine Field Blend 2018, roughly equal parts Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Carignane, is full of red and blue fruits with peppery Asian spices, ginger, wild cherry, leather and tangy pomegranate flavors throughout. It is ethereal and surprisingly refreshing on the palate.”
SILVER GHOST Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2019 ($39)
Look up “textbook Napa Cabernet Sauvignon” and you’ll find Silver Ghost in the description. Or something like that. Violets, chocolate covered cherries, blueberries, espresso. Medium/full body and very expressive. Drink up. Rutherford, Calistoga and Yountville fruit. Aged 22 months in 50% new French oak. 5% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot.
Earthly Rotation Tasting is $15 with $5 taken off for each bottle purchased. Wines in tasting are sold for 10% off.
