September 22, 2019

 

Galileo Galilei said, “Wine is sunlight, held together by water.”

 A very smart man😏

 

Oscar and Armando have some great suggestions.

 

Kevin, Lefty and Fidel were busy doing 🍷 “research “ 🍷 on Tuesday at the Winebow wine tasting event in New York.

'Tis the season to drink wine for a reason, ....any reason really.

 

Why not drop by and try some new "sunlight held together by water" at Leary's Liquor Cabinet.

 

Cheers 🥂

 

 

Winemaker's Notes: "Brilliant deep red/garnet color. Nose shows fresh cherries, strawberry, baking spices, toasted oak and hints of bacon fat. The palate gives up dark red fruit flavors, earthy mushrooms and loads of spices finishing with warm notes of vanilla and coffee. Silky texture on a medium-weighted palate with perfumed flavors that permeate up to the nose. Lively, visceral and brooding." 

 

Pali Wine Co.  Huntington Pinot Noir
 $24.99 

 

Winemaker Notes: "A beautiful vintage and a commitment to quality winemaking is well reflected in this release of “Red Cap” Pinot Noir. Crafted with fruit from a variety of growing sites, it is a reflection of the perfect terroir in the Willamette Valley. The warm, dry growing season led to ripe fruit and concentration that balances perfectly with our trademark texture, acidity and complexity. Medium-bodied, the palate is gushing with ripe Bing cherry, plum and a kiss of chocolate." 

 

Montinore Estate Pinot Noir
From Willamette Valley

SPECIAL - $18.99

Winemaker Notes: "Riviera is crafted from Pinot Noir grapes sourced from two vineyards in the Sonoma Coast AVA: Pali's vineyard in the south-eastern corner of the AVA, and a small, family-owned vineyard in the Russian River Valley AVA (a sub-AVA within Sonoma Coast). This wine is fermented in small lots, punched-down up to three times daily during fermentation, then barrel-aged in 30% new French oak for eight months."

 

Wine Spectator, 90 Points: Ripe, with mocha and espresso accents to the concentrated dark fruit and Asian spice flavors. Dark chocolate notes lengthen out nicely on the finish. Drink now through 2022.

Winebow: "Alanera translates as "black wing," a reference to the raven, "corvo" in Italian, and an homage to the Valpolicella region's treasured indigenous grape, "Corvina".  Alanera is a seductive wine that derives extra richness from an innovative variation on the traditional appassimento method practiced throughout the zone.  50% of all the grapes harvested to produce this wine are partially dried for 45-60 days.  

 

The classic Valpolicella varietals are dried in the main drying facility in Sant' Ambrogio where the Zenato family dry their Amarone grapes, while the Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are dried at Zenato's Santa Cristina winery. The highly concentrated juice from these partially dried grapes adds an unusually complex spectrum of aromas and flavors to the blend.  12 months in barrel round out the tannin structure in this eminently drinkable red."

 
Tasting Notes: "Brilliant ruby in color, Alanera delights the senses with a variety of aromas and flavors that include fresh and dried cherries and prunes, sweet spice, and hints of coffee and tobacco.  On the palate, Alanera is full-bodied with elegant and velvety tannins.  Vibrant acidity brings balance and freshness, and supports a long and harmonious finish."
 
Food PairingPair Zenato's Alanera with medium-aged cheeses, cured meats, meaty fish such as sea bass fillet with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, or with braised meats and stews." Winebow.com
