Saturday Wine Tasting

With Laura Rotondi 

of Baystate Wines

Saturday, Jan. 20, 2 - 5 pm

complimentary!

(suggested $5.00 donation to Pathways for Children)

We've had a few weeks now to rest up and recover from the holidays, and now I'm ready to fill my days and nights with winter wonders! We're so fortunate to have such a plethora of local sights and sounds to enjoy, from concerts at Shalin Liu and the Sunday Concert Series at Symphony Hall, to the  Georgia O'Keefe exhibit at the PEM, all the Oscar nominated films I've yet to see, ice skating on the Frog Pond (well, maybe not for me...no balance, no skates and I prefer indoor activities~ I'll meet you at Number #9 Park for a glass of wine when you're all finished!) Speaking of wine, we are pleased to have Laura Rotondi from Baystate Wines joining us this Saturday. She'll be pouring some terrific wines that are a great match for a wintery blustery night!

2015 Evolucio, Furmint, Hungary ~ $13.99
Furmint is a white Hungarian grape variety, grown in the Tokaji region of northeastern Hungary since the late 16th Century. It's used to produce single-varietal dry whites as well as being the principal grape in the better known Tokaji dessert wines. Although Hungary's decadent Tokaji Aszú was all the rage in the 18th century - in fact, in 1707, the vineyards of Tokaj were part of "the first national vineyard classification anywhere," according to The Oxford Companion to Wine, the wines of contemporary  Hungary have yet to achieve the fashionability of their Austrian neighbors. Evolúció is made from a selection of vineyards especially identified to create a well balanced and food complementing wine, on volcanic stones (andezit, riolite tufa~fossilized volcanic ash (good to know if you're going on Jeopardy!). This wine is a blend of primarily Furmint,  from the French word "froment" for the wheat-gold color of the wine it produces, with a touch of Yellow Muscat to add richness. The grapes are hand harvested, destemmed, pressed gently, and fermented cold in stainless steal tanks without further aging. With aromas of apples and ginger, this crisp white is bursting with citrus, green apples, apricots, floral and mineral notes. The palate is slightly off-dry, ripe with rich flavors of stone fruits and citrus, with a long delightful finish.


2014 Fritz, Chardonnay, Russian River, CA~ $27.99
In 1982, the Stuhlmuller family bought the 150 acre parcel based on the quality of the 90 acres of vines that had been planted in the 1970s.  Located in the southwestern corner of the Alexander Valley, north of Sonoma, over the years, Roger and Carmen, along with their son Fritz, meticulously developed the vines and established a reputation as growers of world-class grapes. Fritz was so inspired by the complex, expressive wines being made from his family's vineyard that in 1996, he established a small, artisan winery bearing the Stuhlmuller name. By 2000, Fritz had achieved his goal of turning Stuhlmuller Vineyards into an estate winery by converting an historic barn on the property into a winemaking facility and in 2004 promoted Danish born Leo Hansen from assistant winemaker to winemaker. The property has special soils for the vines, as it sits on the Russian River and its location allows for both a volcanic and river bench soil.  These soils, combined with fog and cool evening temperatures allow for a long growing season that helps the grapes reach physiological maturity, which results in much more interesting wines to drink. The Fritz Chardonnay contains a tantalizing array of aromas and flavors. Pale golden in color it entices with aromas of wet limestone and apricot, with hints of melon and sweet pea flowers. Silky on the palate with bright acidity, it has a rich and creamy texture containing flavors of apricot, dried fruits and almonds. These flavors carry through with a satisfying finish.
2012 Chateau La Rose Du Pin, Bordeaux, France ~ $17.99
 The Ducourts have been a prominent Bordeaux family since the mid 19th century, and they now own 14 chateaus in 6 different appellations in the region. As passionate botanist, Henri Ducourt knew how to scout out the finest terroir in Entre-Deux-Mers. In 1965, he began to buy plots of vines near to the village of Romagne on a remarkable clay-limestone plateau. Over the years he built up a great estate between "A La Rose" and "le Pin de Cornet", which has now become Château La Rose du Pin. The tannins are solid here, a dark, dense and smoky layer that lends structure while still allowing room for the weight of fruit that is developing. A spicy character at the end adds interest.
 
2016 Aviary, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa, CA ~ $24.99
Napa Valley has developed into one of the world's most important planting areas for Cabernet Sauvignon, next to Bordeaux's Left Bank. Unfortunately for the consumer, almost every inch of prime vineyards is reserved for the top grade vines, so there are few occasions for inexpensive juice to trickle down to the masses. That's why we get excited when we can offer an attractively priced California Cab, and when it's from Napa, we're nearly ecstatic. Aviary is a project founded by Gregory Ahn, Matt Scarlett, 
and Jonathan White - all of whom have worked with successful wine companies across the world. In Napa, they made a success of Aviary by sourcing excellent raw material from some of the finest sub-AVA's in Napa Valley and then selling their wine for a reasonable price. Buy a bottle and make your friends think you spent a whole lot more. It tarts with a beautiful shade of purple 
and a nose of bramble berry topped with a grind of fresh black pepper. The expressive, lush, palate has all the dark fruit and cassis that you'd expect from California, but with balanced oak, integrated soft tannins, and ample acidity on a very long finish.
