Tasting Room

Wines by Jennifer®

Week of February 26th, 2019

White Wines

  • Italy's Trentino regional white wines are sometimes considered light by international standards, but the best of them have an unexpected ability to age. The emphasis, however, remains on the ever-popular Pinot Grigio. This lovely white wine is straw colored with green highlights, with delicate aromas of pear and white flowers. Dry and full-bodied with a pleasant aftertaste, it is a wonderful match with the "Maryland Crab Cakes" recipe from our Wines by Jennifer® Cookbook!
  • This Alto-Adige Pinot Bianco is a brilliant straw-yellow color with greenish tints. The wine leads with ample stone fruit aromas and pronounced, elegant, flavors. It is light- to medium-bodied with a fresh, mouth-watering finish. When properly cellared, this wine may be enjoyed over the next 2 - 4 years.
  • This Monterey Chardonnay is perfectly balanced, with green apple and tropical notes in the nose, followed by subtle vanilla and peaches on the rich, mouthcoating palate. The long, vibrant, flavorful finish is a fine pairing with the “Pineapple Cheese Toast” from our Wines by Jennifer Cookbook!

Red Wines

  • This Chianti estate is situated in the Classico area on the western slopes of the hills near San Gimignano. The production of wine here has been recorded back to the 1500's, and it is textbook Chianti Classico. Aged in large oak casks of 30 hl and then finished in smaller barriques, it is very fragrant, with powerful aromas of licorice, black cherry, and roses. On the palate, there is a distinct minerality and delicate tannins that provide a wonderful tasting experience.
  • This traditional Valpolicella blend of 70% Corvina, 20% Rondinella, 5% Molinara, and 5% Oseleta comes from fruit sourced from a single vineyard in the Valpolicella Classico area. After malolactic fermentation in oak, it is aged in 50 hl barrels for the next year. Ruby red, with an intense, ample bouquet of almond notes, it is dry, flavorful and structured on the palate. A pleasing bitterish nuance on the finish makes for great food versatility.
  • Nero d’Avola is the most important and widely planted red wine grape in Sicily, and is named for a small fishing village on the southeast coast of the island. This delightful red wine offers fruity aromas of strawberry, wild red cherry and raspberry that carry through to the palate, mingling with notes of white pepper and mineral. It’s easy drinking, with bright acidity and a smooth texture.

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. The Port Flight will consist of three 1-ounce pours, served in unison.

Featured Flight: West Coast Cabernets


Known as the King of Reds, Cabernet Sauvignon is the product of a chance crossing between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc during the 17th century in southwestern France. The classic profile tends to be medium- to full-bodied wines with high tannins and noticeable acidity that contribute to the aging potential and pairing with hearty meals.

 

  • The idea was simple: with a home base in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, the winery could explore all the exceptional growing regions of the Pacific Northwest. They believe that geographic boundaries shouldn’t define the wine that is in a bottle, so although the wine is uniquely Washington, the winery is proud to call Oregon home. This wine is vinted to be fresh, approachable and ready for any occasion. Bursting with aromas and flavors of blue and black fruits, chocolate and black cherry framed by sweet vanilla and cocoa from the oak on which it was aged. A shining example of Washington Cabernet!
  • Paso Robles has approximately 40,000 vineyard acres planted with wine grapes, and is well known for its Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Rhône-style wines. With a greater day-to-night temperature swing than most other appellations in California, distinct microclimates, diverse soils and a long growing season, Paso Robles is a unique wine region blessed with optimal growing conditions. This Cab features aromas reflective of the Paso Robles earthy terrain with dark cherry, ripe plum, blueberry and notes of vanilla. The mouthcoating palate offers a medium-bodied wine with flavors of cassis, black currant and anise spice, framed with smooth, silky tannins on a flavorful, lingering finish.
  • The North Coast AVA is one of California's premier wine-growing regions, covering more than three million acres in Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, and Lake counties, as well as parts of Marin and Solano. Bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west and San Pablo Bay to the south, the area is composed of rugged coastal ranges, volcanic mountains, gentle rolling hills, deep valleys and wide alluvial plains. With tremendous diversity in soil types and microclimates, the North Coast produces grapes that are deeply influenced by terroir, infusing the wines with character and a unique sense of place that can't be found anywhere else in the world. This North Coast Cab shows decadent toasted oak notes from the blend of American and French oak aging, and black cherry and sweetened cranberry on the palate. This is a New World, fruit-forward, full-bodied, and delightfully structured wine.
