With the start of the New Year, the new wines are being released, so it’s time for a visit to Silver Sage Winery.  The 2013 Gewürztraminer is soft and fruity with wild rose notes and a bright, grapefruit finish; perfect for a spicy meal.  The 2013 Grand Reserve Sage is out now as well.  Infusing Gewürztraminer with wild sage gives it an herbal complexity that makes this unique wine a great match for many meals.  The 2013 Pinot Blanc has a beautiful apple pear finish that makes it great for any meal, any time.  Get ready for spring by stocking up on the Sunset Rosé.  This is an off dry Pinot Blanc infused with cranberries and raspberries designed to be served well chilled.  Celebrate the end of a long day with this wine on the patio, but be careful; it’s so delicious that you might get distracted and miss the sunset altogether.  The tasting room is open daily from 10am to 5pm until April 1st.  After that the hours are 10am to 6pm until November 1st.  Make sure you plan to stop in for a visit the next time you find yourself in the area.
