“The first rule of WINE CLUB is… ALWAYS talk about WINE CLUB!”
The Wine buyers (Andrew and Dale) pick two wines each month for you that we love, and you will too. One white (or rose, or bubbly) and one red. The total value of wines will exceed $40 (usually between $45 and $50) and the longer you sign up for, the better the deal! (see below for pricing and perks)
Talbott Kali Hart Pinot Noir 2013
This pinot is made from 100% estate fruit at Talbott Vineyards, founded in 1982, this is a delightful entry-level Pinot. This really has that funkiness I associate with good Pinot, while still being bright and fresh. Here’s what the producer has to say about the wine: “Talbott Kali Hart Pinot Noir is a pure fruit expression of Talbott’s vineyard. It is made to be bright and appealing upon release, with the fresh, cool climate flavors for which the Monterey County AVA is known. It has a beautiful, deep ruby color with bright fruit aromas of cranberry, currant and plum, as well as hints of vanilla. The crisp red fruit flavors continue on the palate, where they are accentuated by soft, smooth tannins. The finish is long with lush fruit and hints of vanilla and French oak. Kali Hart Pinot Noir is named after Robb Talbott’s youngest daughter.”
This is going to be really nice with Grilled or roasted meats, lamb! Grilled Portobellos, Moussaka, Veal Meatloaf, grilled Salmon on roasted tomato and mushrooms with crumbled feta, and a drizzle of fig vincotto vinegar…
The Supernatural New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc 2014
I was immediately attracted to this wine, being a lover of Sauvignon Blanc from anywhere in the world. This wine is particularly interesting (and super yummy!) We all know New Zealand Sauv. Blanc, The Grass, the Grapefruit, The High Acidity? This isn’t that! It’s from Hawkes Bay rather than Marlboro, (where the grass and grapefruit wines come from) and displays more of a european character, while still being a big fruity new world wine. It has some of the viscosity, or oiliness, that I usually associate with viognier, it’s more tropical than citrus, and displays some nice subtle minerality. The Wine Spectator says this: “Smooth and rich, with toasted spice and honeysuckle accents, featuring flavors of crisp lemon, ripe melon and baked pear. Seamless acidity weaves in and out, giving all the nuances freshness and vitality. Drink now. 4,000 cases made.”
aaaaand… the Crown Cap, for a wine meant to be consumed young the crown cap is an excellent enclosure, provides a great seal, is easy to remove, and can even handle the pressure of a sparkling wine.
This is going to be a very adaptable food wine because of its round complexity and sufficient acidity. How about Fish Tacos, Grilled marinated shrimp, Chicken and asparagus sauteed and served on fresh pasta with parmesan…
