What We’re Drinking: Wines of the Week
Sip into the Season with some iYellow recommended wines!
Megalomaniac Selfie 2015
Tasting Note: Smile! This is one selfie you’ll want to share. Intense aromas of orchard blossoms, citrus, applesauce and pear introduce a juicy, bright and flavourful wine with a nice rush of acidity giving focus and freshness. Pair with sushi, fish or grilled pork. (Vintages panel, May 2016)

Jackson-Triggs Entourage Grand Reserve Brut 2014
Tasting Note: Attainable extravagance to inspire and complement an ambiance of luxury in your holiday celebrations.
Tommasi Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico 2013
Tasting Note: Bright dark red with a pale amber tinge at the rim. Ripe aromas and flavors of red cherry and aromatic spices. Offers a decadent, luscious mouthfeel with soft tannins, but also a touch of alcohol-derived warmth. The finish is long and savory. Though not the most complex Amarone Tommasi has ever made, it has a lovely easy to drink quality for such a big wine and is very hard to resist in its candied, opulent personality. Drinking window: 2019-2025. Score – 90. (Ian D’Agata, vinous.com, May 2017)
