While it doesn’t feel like Fall outside, there are only two weekends after this until Thanksgiving. To kick off the wine-to-pair with turkey season, we begin with a great lineup.
On Friday, the West Burgundy Wine Group will showcase their world-class wines from California and Oregon.
On Saturday Niklas Peltzer from Meinklang and Michael Hoeffken from Hillinger will be here to promote their great Austrian wines perfect for those still celebrating Octoberfest or those looking forward to Turkey Day.
Friday, November 6, 4 – 7 pm
West Burgundy Wine Group with Sarah and Kristin
The West Burgundy Wine Group represents a portfolio of wineries consisting of estate-based, site specific wines produced from classic Burgundian varietals grown in their vineyards across the climate margins of California and Oregon.
Today we will see how different three Pinot Noirs from three different AVAs can be. This will be a joy to compare and see which you like best!
Gran Moraine Yamhill-Carlton Pinot Noir 2012 $39.99
Huckleberry, European plum, wild strawberries, pipe tobacco, lavender, black pepper, rosemary engage the senses. Marion berry, French roasted coffee, cranberry, black truffle and braised meat illuminate the palate. Bright but balanced acidity, powerful but elegant and age worthy tannins combine for a first-rate wine. A lengthy red fruit and earthy finish cleanses the palate and persists for ages.
Champ de Reves Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2012 $34.99
Aromas of cranberry and Chambord punctuated by notes of coriander, rose, juniper berry, brown sugar, and Douglas fir. Flavors of blueberry, sour cherry, cedar, and savory elements come through on the palate. Juicy acidity, earthy texture, and supple yet substantial tannin structure.
Wild Ridge Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2012 $39.99
The 2012 Wild Ridge Pinot Noir balances the bright acidity and spicy notes considered classic in coastal Sonoma Pinots with rich texture and smooth tannins. Aromas of fresh blackberry, red plum and cedar are complemented by pomegranate, red plum, spice, orange zest and dark chocolate on the palate.
