The November Wine Wednesday Calendar is Here!
Two glasses of our featured bottle of wine and its appetizer for only $25
Nov. 16th–Bodega Vega de Tera “Joven” Temperanillo. Paired with Cherry-BBQ Meatball Sliders.
100% Tempranillo. Cherry, strawberries, and red berries on the note. Dense fruity flavor stands out of red fruit. Aftertaste is long and silky, marked by fine and round tannins. It is a young wine, made to enhance the aromas and fruity flavors of the Tempranillo variety. Harvested at night, to preserve all the potential that this grape gives us. Vineyards are located on sites with high temperatures during the months of July and August, and with clay soils; there are abrupt changes between the day and night temperature, and the soil receives a low amount of water. The result is well-structured wines, with optimal alcoholic content and intense color.
Nov. 23rd–Vicchiomaggio San Jacopo Chianti Classico DOCG 2019. Paired with BBQ Chicken Flatbread.
90% Sangiovese, 5% Canaiolo Nero, 5% Colorino. Bright ruby red. Concentrated black sherry aroma, iris, cinnamon and a hint of rosemary. It is lively on the palate thanks to its crispness and to well-integrated tannins with medium body. The finish has orange juice and herbs flavor.
Nov. 30th–Laurent Family Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon Corrupto Valle del Maipo. Paired with a seared-tuna crostini.
92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Carmenere from an organic vineyard in the Maipo Valley. Grapes are grown on riverbed soils of alluvial clay loam. Dry red wine with mixed black and red fruit over notes of bell pepper. Dark, ripe fruits with notes of leather and minerality; a little active on the tongue at first, giving a fresh pop of interest. Cherry, raspberry and lighter notes of blackberry, black pepper and cedar. The wine has soft medium minus tannins and acidity. The fruit has medium plus intensity.
Dec. 7th–La Patience Coteaux du Pont du Gard Chardonnay. Paired with TBD.
100% Chardonnay. Pale yellow in the glass with a tart, fruity nose and dynamic mineral scents. The palate opens with crisp citrus and peach flavors that are boosted by vibrant acidity and heady minerality. Palate is bold with green apple, spice, and a hint of salinity. Crisp, quick, and dry finish.
