March is already here and we are ready to celebrate with another supperb, four-wine lineup for you to toast and taste. We are delighted to have the very talented guitarist/vocalist Ian Rottner back in the house.
We'll roll out the tasting with a 2014 Dr. Hermann Riesling from Germany's Mosel region. Ripe and lush with medium acidity, plus notes of yellow cherry and pineapple, this semi-sweet riesling is approachable and very balanced. Great with Indian, Thai, Chinese and spicy dishes from just about any cuisine. Awarded 90 points by Wine Enthusiast.
Next up is 2015 "Hahn", a Pinot Gris from the hills of Monterrey County, California hand-crafted by vintners Nicky and Gaby Hanh and their family. Crisp and refreshing, this Pinot Gris shows notes of green apple and citrus with flavors of white peach and nectarine. Love it!
Out first red is a classic 2014 “Burgundy Pinot Noir” from one of France’s most iconic winemakers: Louis Latour. This light wine offers red berry fruit character and the dry, earthy style that characterizes reds from this region. A great match with salmon, roasted chicken, pasta dishes and stews such as beef bourguignon.
Last but not least is "1", an Argentinean Malbec from Bodegas Antigal that will definitely keep you smiling all weekend long. This smooth, supple red has notes of cedar and vanilla-spice plus abundant dark fruit flavors. Pairs beautifully with steak, roasts and South American cuisine.
See you all on Friday!
