Wines by Jennifer®

Week of October 16th, 2018

White & Rosé Wines

  • This Chardonnay from the Central Coast of California is loaded with flavor: tropical fruits, creamy vanilla and just a kiss of delicate floral character and a sliver of oak. Excellent balance and a lengthy finish round out this wonderful New World Chard. Perfect with this week's Baked Brie Pastry Puff special appetizer.
  • This rosé from Hawke's Bay on New Zealand's North Island is light pink salmon in color, a result of brief soaking and light pressing. The Cabernet Franc grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness, giving great flavor, fresh acidity and expressive aromatics. Try it with the “Roasted Garlic” recipe from our Wines by Jennifer® Cookbook!

Red Wines

  • Toro means “bull” in Spanish, and while the origin of the name is unclear, the bull is nevertheless an appropriate symbol for the typically robust and powerful Toro red wines. Made from 100% Tinta de Toro (the local name for Tempranillo), the wine is inky and dense, with earthy aromas that evolve into rich, sweet, dark berry fruit. Lively and chewy in the mouth, with flavors of blackberry and cassis that are prototypical Toro.
  • Argentina's Patagonia region is slightly colder and lower in elevation compared to Mendoza. The grapes develop wonderful acidity, with ripe black fruits and striking minerality. This Malbec is bright red in color with garnet tones. Red fruit aromas meld with plum and blueberry notes, with a touch of vanilla and some soft, spicy notes adding complexity. Silky and ripe, it's fresh and balanced, with an elegant and lengthy finish.
  • The Syrah, Petite Sirah, and Zinfandel grapes for this California red blend are sourced from vineyards throughout the Central Valley known to produce rich and elegant wines. This handcrafted wine shows complex fruit and has a gentle, well balanced finish. Enjoy either with a variety of foods or completely on its own.
  • The Clare Valley wine region is one of Australia's oldest wine regions. This winery was established in 2008 as a Clare Valley outpost for a nearby Barossa Valley winery. Their beautiful estate Shiraz has sweet, dark red berry aromas of plum and mulberry. The palate is spicy, with ripe cherry and chocolate notes and good length.

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!
