Week of May 7th, 2019

 

White & Rosé Wines

  • DOC Collio is a winemaking area in the northeast Italy region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia. It is here where Ribolla Gialla thrives. Straw yellow with delicate green hues, with subtle floral aromas of acacia flower and jasmine. Elegant and fresh with a pleasant acidity and citrusy finish. Ideal as an aperitif, or served with seafood starters, fish and vegetable first courses.

  • This wonderful dry Touraine rosé is a blend of 70% Gamay and 30% Pineau d'Aunis (Chenin Noir). Juicy and floral with fresh acidity and ripe cherry flavors. Good concentration and a leafy, stony fresh finish make for a wonderful pairing with the “Roasted Garlic” recipe from our Wines by Jennifer® Cookbook.

Red Wines

  • This 100% Pinot Noir displays abundant berry and floral character, with vibrant spice accents adding complexity. Lush texture and appealingly sweet tannins, this wine finishes with impressive, juicy length and bright floral notes. Textbook Willamette Valley Pinot Noir at a great price!
  • This Monferrato Rosso is the perfect marriage of Barbera and several international grape varieties, beginning with Pinot Nero, followed by Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Brilliant intense ruby red, with spicy aromas and delicate, warm blackberry and cinnamon flavors.
  • This wine is made by one of the most dynamic and respected producers in the prestigious Bolgheri DOC. A native of the area, he is meticulous in his organic vineyards, and his wines radiate his profound passion. This powerful Super Tuscan blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot is packed with black cherry, blackberry and plum flavors, with vibrant acidity providing firm structure.
  • Year after year, this producer shines as one of Lodi’s finest. Their classic “old vine” Zin is brambly and juicy, full of black and blue fruits with a touch of spice. Tangy acidity brings freshness and verve, maintaining a wonderful balance all through the long and satisfying finish.

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: Zinfandels

Primitivo and Zinfandel are both clones of the Croatian grape Crljenak. Though genetic equals, they produce very distinctive wines. The Zin is much more fruit-forward, while the Primitivo is leaner and more rustic.

Zinfandel is lighter in color than both Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, but moderate tannins and high acidity make it taste bold. Most Zinfandel wines also have higher alcohol levels ranging from about 14 – 17% ABV.

We frequently see the phrase “Old Vine” associated with Zins. Though there is no set rule or law, the consensus is vines around 50 years old can be tagged as “Old Vines.” Also known as Ancient Vines, Gnarly Vines, Old Timer Vines, Old World Vines or Old Twisted Vines, they are typically in decline, producing less and less fruit. Clusters are fewer, with smaller berry size yielding more intense sugars, color and flavor.

Zinfandel works well with barbecue and lamb, while the more rustic Primitivo works naturally well with Italian meat-based entrees served with traditional red sauce. And, don’t forget the best pairing of all – Belle Toffee’s Roasted Hazelnut Espresso Toffee in Dark Chocolate, available here at Wines by Jennifer®!

 

  • From Puglia, the heel of Italy’s boot, this Primativo is deep ruby red, with intense aromas of ripe red fruit, cherry, mulberry, blueberry, vanilla and herbs. Bold and long, with enjoyable tannins, pair this with red meats, roasts, and aged cheeses.
  • Paso Robles is arguably one of America’s premier Zin-growing regions. Dark berry and spicy aromas lead to a palate rich with jammy, ripe plum and blackberry flavors bolstered by a touch of black pepper. Sweet, toasted oak offers a plush mouthfeel and a long, velvety finish.
  • Fruit is from a blend of 16 different blocks of Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel vineyards with an average age of 87 years. With berries and spice on the nose, dark, sweet fruit fills the palate with just a hint of black pepper. This wine has a long, lingering finish and the potential to age.
