Tasting Room

Wines by Jennifer®

Week of May 28th, 2019

 

White Wines

  • The wine is 100% Torrontes, the signature white grape of Argentina. Made with fruit from selected vineyards located in Maipu, Mendoza, it is pale yellow color with subtle golden flashes. On the nose, the wine is very aromatic yet elegant, with bright yellow fruits and hints of jasmine and roses. Fresh hints of green apple and melon are balanced with very good acidity on the long aftertaste. Pair with salads, seafood, sushi, or Asian foods.

  • The bodega is a vast estate of 585 hectares in Requena, in the east of Spain. The blend is 50% Chardonnay, 40% Mersequera, and 10% Pinot Noir. Straw yellow with greenish reflections. Aromas are predominantly pear, apple and citrus, while the palate is fresh, long, and balanced.
  • The wine is made with a special selection of clusters hand-picked from the estate vineyards featuring the traditional blend of Orvieto Classico. Deep straw yellow color, with an elegant and vivid nose with distinct hazelnut notes. Refreshingly dry and balanced, enjoy with the “Petite Parmesan Baskets with Goat Cheese Mousse” from our Wines by Jennifer® Cookbook.

Red Wines

  • Chianti Classico is the heartland of the Chianti wine region - its traditional and longest-established viticultural area. The term classico is used in this way in several Italian wine regions (Orvieto and Valpolicella, for example), although Chianti is the most famous example. The wine is predominantly Sangiovese, and features an abundance of red fruit in the nose and mouth. A touch of wood supports the long and balanced finish.
  • This complex Syrah from the Belice Valley in western Sicily was matured in 30% stainless steel tanks and 70% medium French oak for four months. Intense purplish black with violet hues. Aromas of violet and blackcurrant are enriched by hints of liquorice and black pepper. Full and round in the mouth, with well-balanced tannins and a toasted, spicy finish. Try with the “Stuffed Cannelloni” recipe from our Wines by Jennifer® Cookbook.
  • Paso Robles in California's Central Coast is arguably one of America’s premier Zinfandel growing regions. Aromas are of dark berries and spice, with a palate rich with jammy, ripe black fruit flavors balanced by a touch of black pepper. Sweet, toasted oak offers a lush mouthfeel and a long, soft, and complex 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.
