are the October, 2012 Featured Wines for the Wines
by Jennifer Wine Club:
Cellars was founded in 1996 as a partnership of friends
from around the U.S. who act as ambassadors for the winery
in their respective communities.
wines are made by Barry Gnekow, an award-winning winemaker
with 30+ years experience making wine. He sources Chardonnay
fruit from their estate vineyard, and also from Napa
Valley vineyards north of St. Helena.
2010 Triumph Cellars Chardonnay is light in color,
and shows clarity and brilliance. Beautifully balanced,
with just the right mix of ripe pear and melon, accented
with mild hints of oak. The wine is medium bodied with
a long, creamy, mouth-filling vanilla finish. It is perfectly
paired with saffron-flavored rice dishes, seafood, and
in the province of Cuneo, Alba is considered the
capital of the hilly area of Piedmont's Langhe region,
and is famous for white truffle, peach and wine production.
Barbera is the most widely grown red wine grape here,
once simply known as "what you drank while waiting
for the Barolo to be ready." With a new generation
of winemakers now on the scene meticulously vinifying
Barbera, this is no longer the case.
2010 Stefano Farina Barbera d'Alba is dark ruby in
color, with floral, red fruit, and spice notes on
the nose. Light-to-medium bodied, with dried cherry
and oak on the mid palate, the neutral tannins and
abundant acidity make this not only great for quaffing,
but very versatile with food.
with a slight chill now or over the next year alongside
the “Swedish Meatballs with Paprika Sauce” from
by Jennifer is also proud to present our "Cellar
Club", featuring a new wine each month suitable for
long-term aging. Call the shop and ask for Jennifer for all
