This tasting is our Pre-Thanksgiving Day Tasting. All of these wines were hand-picked with Turkey dinner in mind. Come on in and enjoy our special Tuesday Tasting.
Francois Cazin Cour-Cheverny Cuvee Renaissance ($22.99): An obscure and almost extinct ancient varietal, Romorantin is similar to both Chenin and Riesling in having high natural sugar and acidity. The Cuvee Renaissance uses a small portion of Botrytised grapes, giving the wine aromas of luxurious honey and tropical fruits, without sacrificing balance and freshness. A great pairing with Turkey and all the trimmings.
Bacchus Pinot Noir Ginger’s Cuvee ($12.95): This wine is made by the former Wine Director at NYC’s Tribeca Grill. He sourced his grapes from some of the top vineyard sites in California. He then ages then in stainless steel completely without oak influence. It is bright, light and lucious, with a great smooth finish.
Occhipinti SP 68 Sicilia Rosso ($29.99): In a few short years, Arianna Occhipinti has become one of the most respected winemakers in her native Sicily. For her, tasting wine is no different than having a conversation. The structure of nero d’avola combines with the freshness and purity of the light-skinned Frappato, for a wonderfully refreshing, mineral-driven wine from an emerging wine region.
Clos de la Roillette Fleurie ($23.99): From one of the great crus of the region, this Fleurie has much more in common with great Burgundy than typical Beaujolais Nouveau. With concentrated aromas of blueberries, sour cherries, and wonderful acidity, this is a great pairing with all of your Thanksgiving favorites
