New Wines at Bistro 108

Come in and try our new wines. All highly rated, wonderful, food friendly wines. Below are just five of the many new wines we have added.

Sauvignon Republic -2007 Sauvignon Blanc, Russian River Valley, California:
Classic pale-straw color with rich pineapple, grapefruit, and tropical fruit layers and a touch of herbal “green” sauvignon notes. Multiple vineyard sources allowed the assembly of a blend that showcases fruitiness and refreshing acidity supported by a surprising richness and length of finish. Rated 90 by Wine Enthusiast

Gundlach Bundschu Wines:

Gundlach Bundschu 2005 Chardonnay, Rhinefarm Vineyard

100% Chardonnay. Aromas of pineapple and warm spice lead to rich flavors of meyer lemon, pink lady apples and a touch of creme brulee. Excellent acidity and fruit clarity draw the round and creamy mouthfeel to a cleansing finish with lasting flavors of bright lemon drop.
Rated a 91 by Wine PhD

Gundlach Bundschu 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon, Rhinefarm Vineyard

96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot. Complex aromas of blackberry, cassis and a trace of grilled meat lead to a lush, smooth entry. Broad, rich tannins frame lush flavors of black
currant and draw the velvety mouthfeel into a long finish of dark cocoa and sweet espresso. Delicious upon release; optimal cellaring time two to 15 years. Rated a 91 by Wine PhD

Gundlach Bundschu 2005 Merlot, Rhinefarm Vineyard

94% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec, 1% Syrah. Aromas and flavors of spiced black cherry, dark plum, blueberry and a beautifully integrated layer of tea leaf. The juicy, dense palate is framed by broad, finely textured tannins. The elegant structure and bright acidity carry the flavors through a long, lingering finish. Delicious upon release, this Merlot will benefit from five years of cellaring and continue to age gracefully for 10 to 12 years.

Gundlach Bundschu 2005 Pinot Noir, Rhinefarm Vineyard

100% Pinot Noir. Aromas of black cherry, dried rose petal and black spice lead to broad, juicy dark fruit flavors with complex minerality and classic Burgundian character. This medium-weight red gets its supple mouthfeel from 35-year-old Heritage clone fruit and its concentration and weight from younger Pommard and Dijon clone blocks, resulting in complexly layered flavors, elegant texture and a long, smooth finish. It will benefit from cellaring 3 to 7 years.
