Wines by Jennifer®

Week of October 9th, 2018

White Wines

  • Juicy and fruit-forward, this Chardonnay from California's Central Coast has notes of tropical fruit, honeycomb, stone fruit and well-integrated oak. Balanced and rich on the palate, this complex wine shows a bright acidity that makes it delicious. Try with the “Stuffed Mushroom Caps with Blue Cheese Souffle” from our Wines by Jennifer® Cookbook!
  • This Mendoza Chardonnay is pale-yellow gold in color, with subtle stone fruit aromas, along with white flower hints. Exotic tropical fruits are also present, accompanied by citrus notes such as orange peel and tangerine. Dry and well-rounded in the mouth, ending with a minerally and lively finish.

Red Wines

  • Chile's San Antonio Valley has a Mediterranean-style climate with a cold, rainy winter and a warm, dry summer. Marked temperature differences between day and night make ideal conditions for growing grapes. This Pinot Noir possesses a clean, brilliant, ruby red color and emphasizes aromas of cherries and raspberries, combined with soft notes of oak. In the mouth, it boasts smooth and elegant tannins followed by a sophisticated finish.
  • Zweigelt was created in 1922 as a cross of two native grapes, St. Laurent and Blaufränkisch, and is the most widely planted red grape in Austria today. This wine comes from medium-age vines, giving a deep and concentrated red color. Fruity and fresh, with black pepper aromas leading to red fruit flavors in the mouth, rounded by a smooth, medium-bodied texture. Aged 50% in stainless steel and 50% in oak barrels, it’s perfect with grilled sausages and sauerkraut.
  • Colchagua Valley is one of Chile's most highly regarded wine regions. This juicy Malbec has bright floral aromas and a rich, fruity character that reminds of ripe plums and pink peppercorns. Medium-bodied, very flavorful and well-balanced, this is a great partner for pork ribs, burgers, and sausages.
  • This Cabernet blend comes from the oldest family winery in all of Australia. Deep red color, with violets, black tea, and fresh Mediterranean herb notes, finishing with a dash of blueberry and the quintessential Barossa Valley dried eucalyptus character. Fresh fruit sweetness balances beautifully with the savory herbal notes and 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!
