Hello everyone! Sorry, it's been a while since I've written a newsletter. I hope you haven't missed too many Thursday tastings. They're always on, and if in doubt you can always check our Facebook page.
But enough small talk. We'll now focus on what really matters: food, wine, family, and friends.
I have such a treat for you this week with two tastings. Thursday is all about decorous flavors for Thanksgiving and Friday is all about my roots with Italian beauties Barolo, Amarone, and Rosso di Montalcino. This is not an optical illusion I promise. Come and stock up for the holidays.
Andrea Alexander is joining us at the tasting table to help me tease your palate and get you in shape for Thanksgiving. Here's what she's bringing:
Sybille Kuntz, Trocken - Riesling
"Dry-trocken, complex Riesling with great balance, acidity and minerality, nuances of citrus, medium body and a medium-long finish. Very enjoyable lean, refined, and elegant wine. Perfect match for all kinds of dishes." -- LC "Sybille Kuntz is a celebrated pioneer of full-bodied dry Mosel Rieslings." -- Jancis Robinson
Chateau Rahoul, Grave - White Bordeaux
Expressive nose is an understatement. Full body, rich, elegant, impeccable texture, also very refreshing and extremely food-friendly. Mostly Semilon, some Sauvignon blanc.
Heitz Cellar, Napa - Grignolino
Pronounced "green-o-lean-o." Light, delicate and filled with floral notes on the nose. Vibrant and translucent-like color, feminine and easy-sipping. Notes of orange and lemon are enchanting.
Kuleto Native Son, Red Blend
Crazy intense aromatics of blackberry, black cherry, and cedar. The body and taste is broad, nicely integrated tannins, very smooth and good structure.
We look forward to seeing you - 6 to 8
