What You'll Get
Recent additions to the official Wine Adjective Dictionary include entries such as glove-like, zigzagesque, and Audrey Hepburnish. Craft your own vivid descriptors with today's deal: for $12, you get two custom signature tastings of five wines at the Thomas Fogarty Winery in Woodside (a $24 value). Complimentary tastings of four wines are offered on Wednesdays, so be sure to attend on Thursday through Sunday to redeem the full value of today's Groupon.
The knowledgeable, friendly staff at the The Fogarty Winery Tasting Room will help amateur ambrosialists and experienced grape sniffers select five vintage fermentations to sample from the wine list. The 2006 Langley Hill Vineyard SCM Estate Chardonnay stays true to its mountainous roots, packing a steely mineral punch, as hints of fruit usher in a soothing, refreshing finish. Only 94 cases of this nectar were produced and bottles are available for $48. Pamper your scarlet palate with a 2005 Lexington Santa Cruz Mountains Meritage. Poor weather patterns and surprise alien crop circles aside, 2005 produced a perfectly ripened yield. This cabernet-merlot blend is apt to drop flavor bombs of black fruit, spice and toasty oak, with lingering chords of cassis, plum, and loam. Only 447 cases were captured in the wild and you can walk your own bottle home for $45.
Winery owner Dr. Thomas Fogarty has been perfecting his fermenting skills for more than 30 years. His 325-acre vineyard rests high in the Santa Cruz mountains at roughly 2,000 feet, offering stunning views of the surrounding landscape. Feel free to drop by anytime during tasting hours, but be sure to call for parties of 12 or more.
