Week of March 5th, 2019

Sparkling, White & Rosé Wines

  • The ever-popular Italian bubbly Prosecco is made from Glera grapes, and it can be spumante (sparkling), frizzante (semi-sparkling), or tranquillo (still). Unlike Champagne and Franciacorta DOCG, Prosecco is typically produced using the Charmat–Martinotti method, in which the secondary fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks rather than in each bottle. Fresh and light, it’s the perfect start to any special occasion!
  • Alto Adige is one of the lesser known wine regions in Italy, but it is here that you’ll find some of the world’s best Pinot Grigio. Aromas of chamomile flower and ripe Bartlett pear lead to a lively, easy-drinking palate of green apple, white peach and a juicy citrus note alongside tangy acidity.
  • The blend for this tasty Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence rosé is 40% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Rolle, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Counoise, and 5% Carignan. It offers classic aromas of wild strawberries and red currants, with a light, floral character and a crisp, bone-dry palate. Enjoy year-round on its own or with a wide range of lighter fare and Provence-inspired cuisine.

Red Wines

  • Located in northwest Piedmont, Barbera del Monferrato is probably the least known of the three Piedmontese classified Barbera zones. All Barbera del Monferrato wines must include at least 85% Barbera, with the balance made up from any combination of Freisa, Grignolino, and Dolcetto. Fruit-forward and rich, with blackberry and blueberry character, this is a gorgeous and generous Barbera that gives a wealth of fruit and enjoyment.
  • This soft and easy-drinking Mendoza Malbec is a typical violet color. Aromas of roasted nuts, latte, and dried berries lead to a medium-bodied palate with chocolate, citrus peel, bacon bits, and an earth-accented finish with fine chewy tannins. Excellent balance and flavor make it a wonderful pairing for the “Beef Empanadas” recipe from our Wines by Jennifer® Cookbook!
  • Located in the northwestern portion of Yolo County, the Dunnigan Hills AVA encompasses 69,000 acres with roughly 1,300 acres planted to vines. The beautiful, dark garnet color of this Petit Verdot leads to inviting aromas of clove and brown spices. Dense flavors of plum, violets and mocha are layered over tart cherry and blueberry. The aggressive tannins are tamed by an appealing fruity sweetness.

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.
