Saturday Wine Tasting

with Chris Hofman of Oz Wines

Saturday, March 17, 2 - 5 pm


(suggested $5.00 donation to Pathways for Children)

                                                2016 Domaine Augis Valencay Sauvignon Blanc ~ $15.99
Valencay (vah-lehn-SAY) is a recently promoted AOC wine appellation (it gained AOC status in 2004) in the Loire region of France that adjoins the Touraine appellation. While it extends across fourteen communes in two départements (Indre and Loir-et-Cher) its total extent is only 142 hectares, which is about 350 acres or, easier to imagine, 1/2 a square mile. It's, uh, how do you say... petite.
The wine is incredibly easy to drink, enjoyable and familiar. It is, afterall, sauvignon blanc. It is older vines, grown in clay and silex soils which give it a great mineral backbone. The wine does ferment in 400 liter, 2-5 year old oak barrel and not stainless steel. It imparts structure, some roundness and complexity to the wine. 
It offers a beautiful nose of quince and fresh peaches. It is slightly more citrusy than tropical, but does have a nice weightiness to compliment its bright flavors and clean finish.
2016 Il Corzanello Toscana Bianco ~ $15.99
 A blend of 5 co-fermented grapes, Chardonnay, Trebianno, Petit Manseng, Semillon, and Sauvignon Blanc comprise this tasty white from a Tuscan vineyard near Florence that also makes cheese. Of the range of wines they produce, only this one is white. Nose: peaches, lychee & honeysuckle. Palate has good acidity along with floral, fruity & citrus aspects, almond notes & just a hint of smoke.  No oak, but aged on the lees for several months, producing a luscious mouthful of lemon curd and key lime.  This is my favorite "Book Club" wine - everyone loves it and wants to discuss it!
2015 Jose Garcia Unculin Bierzo ~ $18.99
This is my favorite Spanish red wine.  It is not from Rioja, nor is it the famed red of Spain, tempranillo.  It is Mencia (which many believe was originally cloned from Cabernet Franc) and it hails from the provence of Bierzo in  the cool climate of Northwestern Spain.  
José Antonio García crafts this from his family's vines in the clay soils of Valtuille de Abajo. Unculín is a joven-style of mencía; fermented in stainless steel, it sees no oak. What at first seems to be only ripe fruit and dense flavors slowly awakens in the glass to reveal its true essence: a wine of tension, acidity and black cherries. Pour it now with roast pork.

2006 Anciano Gran Reserva Tempranillo ~ $15.99

Another Spanish favorite, this is a remarkable value - a Gran Reserva tempranillo with more than 10 years of age on it - for $15.99!  100% Tempranillo, aged 24 months in American and French oak, this wine shows an intense dark red shading to brick red at the rim, indicating its long ageing.  A range of different characteristics can be identified on the nose - black cherry fruit, spicy notes of leather and musk, tobacco and vanilla oak. Medium to full bodied with some finesse, concentrated red fruit compote flavours and smooth, mellow tannins on the finish.
Food match: Game, roast beef and other grilled red meats, rich vegetarian dishes and mature cheeses.  Decanter Magazine - "commnded" 2017.
Maison Noir Wine "Horseshoes and Handgrenades" ~ $18.99
"Horseshoes & Handgrenades is a fruit-driven, full-bodied complex red blend sourced from Southern Oregon  and Red Mountain Washington.  The rich, ripe, voluptuous fruit comes from Oregon Syrah with just enough Washington Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to give it complexity and structure. Think cherry pits and leather whips!" (MNW
Soup's On!
(Bone-broth and soups ready at Savour)!
With the temperatures dipping into the single digits, and the big game ahead, there is no better time for a steaming bowl of soup or nourishing bone broth from Savour's kitchen.  (And, in case you missed it, January was National Soup Month, so if you forgot to observe it, now is your chance)!  Katrina has been busy in the kitchen whipping up some of Savour's classics as well as a few additions.  We just finished a fresh batch of our deliciously warming, slow-cooked, healthy bone broth.  There is nothing better for sipping on a chilly winter day.

                           From "Eating Bird Food"

 We also have more of our classic Brunswick Stew (a tomato-based chicken delight) as well as the hearty, rich Tuscan vegetable stew, simmered with the rind of the famous Cravero Parmesan cheese.  And, just because one of our good customers, Lewis, told Katrina he was "craving it," she cooked up a full pot of her Mushroom Barley Flank Steak stew.  Finally, we have a new vegan option with "Three Sisters Black Bean stew."  The "three sisters" of Latin American cooking are corn, beans, and squash (butternut in this case).  All stews are cooled and vacuum-sealed the same day, and frozen in quart-sized mason jars, for absolute freshness.  Find them in our freezer, priced from $14.99 - $18.99.  So - whether you are dining alone, feeding a crowd of Super bowl fans, or taking a night off from cooking dinner for the two of you, these delicious, filling, flavorful soups will satisfy your cravings and warm your soul!

We still have some places left for our Mardi Gras dinner this Sunday, Feb. 11 at 6 p.m.  Chef Matt Beach will be cooking again (Yay!), so we are thrilled to have him running the show in the kitchen.  We also just got an entertainment license, so we have our first musical event (a wonderful jazz trio, Krewe de Roux).  

Please come out and support these incredible local musicians.  In general, all your favorite local retail shops and restaurants absolutely need your support this time of year to survive.  Talking with many other business-owners in our area, this has been the toughest January in many years.  We so appreciate your support and encourage you to frequent other favorite businesses on Cape Ann.  In that spirit, I want to give a shout out to a few great restaurants in our area - Tonno (where we recently had one of the best wine-dinner experiences to be had on Cape Ann (along with C.K. Pearl, where Chef-Owner Patrick Shea continues to outdo himself with innovative, artful fine food) and Cygnet in Beverly Farms, now with new owners, a new executive chef and a great new wine list.  We are so fortunate to have business owners who care to do their best for their customers, so thank you for supporting all of us in the frigid days and nights of New England winter...maybe we should make it WINEter?
