Tasting Room

Wines by Jennifer®

Week of October 2nd, 2018

White Wines

  • Veneto exports twice as much wine as any other region in Italy, and Soave is a big reason why. Derived from the Garganega grape, the wine shows aromas of peach, jasmine, and almonds, with a slight touch of savory Parmesan. Clean and crisp sensations on the palate support refreshing tastes of yellow plum and pineapple with a fresh and creamy finish. Try it with the “Olive Ball” recipe from our Wines by Jennifer® Cookbook!
  • This Maconnais Chardonnay is pale-yellow gold, brilliant and crystal-clear, the nose develops subtle fruit aromas (peach, pear), with floral notes of acacia and honeysuckle. Exotic fruits are present, as are citrus notes (orange peel). On the palate, this wine is dry and well-rounded, minerally and lively from the first taste.

Red Wines

  • Marlborough soils are a balanced mix of moisture and stone creating wines that are unique to the region. The vineyards are based in one of the most dynamic climates in New Zealand, creating brilliant, fruity, fresh wines. Blackberry, plum, pepper, licorice and leather are great descriptors for this lovely Pinot Noir. Subtle oak and full tannin structure give roundness which lingers on the palate.
  • Zweigelt was created in 1922, when Dr. Fritz Zweigelt crossed two grapes: St. Laurent and Blaufränkisch. It is the most widely planted red grape in Austria today. This wine comes from 10-15 year old vines. Deep and concentrated red color, with fruity, fresh and spicy aromas. Cherry flavors are present, with a smooth, medium-bodied texture. Aged 50% stainless steel and 50% oak barrels for maturation, it’s perfect with grilled sausages.
  • Produced by a winery Jennifer and Don have personally visited, this wine is derived from different Malbec vineyards in the Colchagua Valley. Intense floral aromas and abundant fruity character. This juicy Malbec recalls ripe plums and pink peppercorns. Medium-bodied and very flavorful and balanced. Ideal with pork ribs, hamburgers, and sausages.
  • Made by another winery Jennifer and Don have visited, this Cabernet comes from the oldest family winery in all of Australia. Deep crimson in color, opening with violets, sea spray and fresh Mediterranean herbs. There are notes of blueberry, a hint of black tea and the quintessential Australian calling card of dried eucalyptus. The fresh fruit sweetness balances beautifully with savory notes of fresh herbs and a lovely acid structure.

And Now Introducing:

Wines by Jennifer® Wine Flights!

($10 Club Members/$12 Guests)


The Wines by Jennifer® Wine Flights program was developed to allow introduction, exploration and comparison into specific wine styles, regions, varietals, wineries and winemakers. A Flight will consist of three 2-ounce pours, served in unison.

Featured Flight: Malbec Regions of Argentina

Argentina is currently the largest producer of Malbec in the world, and it is grown extensively in every wine region of the country, from Salta to Patagonia. Malbec expresses itself very well in regions with broad temperature ranges and calcareous, clayey or sandy soils such as those found at the foot of the Andes. These geographic and climatic features make Argentine Malbec stand out particularly for the quality of its tannins: sweet, silky and mouth-filling.

Salta (Northern Argentina)
The northern region of Salta is one with high altitude and plenty of sun. Malbec from this region expresses a unique personality: aromas of very ripe red and black fruits, black pepper and paprika, with a very solid structure of solid, sweet tannins. This Malbec is intense ruby red with great vivacity and violet notes. Red fresh fruits such as raspberry, strawberry and cherry combine with a spicy aroma given by the use of oak. This wine can be cellared up to four years.

Uco Valley, Mendoza (Central Argentina)
The province of Uco Valley is mountain-flanked in nearly every direction and dominated by miles upon miles of lush vineyards. The province harbors several of the country’s most highly reputed wineries, many of which offer biodynamic vineyards, award-winning architecture and design, and creative chef collaborations. Uco Valley dominates the country’s wine production, and their Malbecs are more elegant, with distinctive spicy and floral notes. This Malbec is a silky and delicate wine with wonderful depth of fruit and aromas of black fruits, black pepper, tangerine skin and flint. Superbly refined tannins deliver a sexy texture plus a bright and minerally finish.

Patagonia (Southern Argentina)
In Patagonia (Neuquén and Río Negro), the climate is slightly colder and altitudes are less extreme. This helps the grapes retain acidity, yielding wines with notes of ripe black fruits combined with a marked mineral tone. This Malbec is intense and bright red with violet tones. Aromas of red fruits, plums, and blueberries, with vanilla and some soft, spicy notes also present. Silky and ripe, this wine is fresh and balanced with an elegant and fruity finish.

Pairings:
Serve Malbec with leaner cuts of seasoned or spicy red meats, dark meat poultry, roasted pork, hard cheeses, charcuterie plates and the “Grilled Lamb Kabobs” from our Wines by Jennifer® Cookbook!
