Introducing Cravings Wine Flights

Enjoy two new wine flights when you visit Cravings Wine Bar & Grille in Woodbury, MN!

The first is a Benziger Family Wine Feature, which includes:

  • Benziger Sauvignon Blanc 2013, a wine with beautiful citrus and apple flavors, followed closely by its delicious minerality. The wine’s acid is both balanced and integrated, giving it a textured mid-palate and an elegant softness.
  • Benziger Chardonnay 2013, with flavors of apple, pear, citrus and ripe apricot that engage the palate, while subtle, creamy hints of butter and meringue unfold.
  • Benziger Merlot 2013, a delicious full-bodied wine that is brilliantly balanced. Dark cherry, dried blueberry and a dusting of dark chocolate carry through the palate. This wine has loads of dark fruit flavors that are in balance with notes of pepper, black tea, and clove. Very well structured – expect a velvety finish!
  • Benziger Cabernet Sauvignon 2013, filled with berry cobbler, cinnamon, and vanilla flavors. Mocha and wood spices unite, layer by layer, to form a finish that is rich with seamless tannins.
