Tasting: Languedoc Gold

rosé.JPG

--
Having forecasted that Nashville would come by a fortuitous taste of spring this week, our friends in southern France went ahead and sent a preliminary shipment of rosé. And we’re jumping right on that wave. The first two rosés of the season hit the shelves on Tuesday, and we’re popping one open for our Saturday tasting.
 
Happily, the original estate at Domaine de Fontsainte was constructed around a thermal spring in an area known as the Golden Crescent. Bruno Laboucarié farms the silica, clay, & limestone soils there according to lutte raisonnée principles, encouraging biodiversity and using natural composts to fertilize the vines.
 
In addition to the rosé from Corbières, we’re opening a deep yet vibrant red from Saint-Chinian. The temperatures are dropping again, but that doesn’t mean we can’t pretend we’re in the Languedoc-Roussillon, sipping wine on the Mediterranean.

Tasting: Natural Romance

Vday_1.jpg

All three wines featured in our Saturday tasting are produced thoughtfully with minimal intervention in the cellar and no herbicides or pesticides in the vineyards. The Partida Creus is especially natural and expresses that cloudy funk that all the kids are 'gramming about these days. Stakes are high on Valentine's Day. We want to offer you something pure to share with your loved one.

Tasting: Super Wine Saturday

Super_Wine_Saturday.jpg

Everyone knows that Super Wine Saturday precedes the day of the big game. I’m just here to remind you. Tomorrow, in the name of tradition, we’re opening a food-friendly white and red that will help set the weekend in motion.

The white is from Vaucluse in the Rhône Valley. It’s medium-bodied with great acid, tropical fruit, honey, & flowers. Think chicken (grilled or fried), nachos, & fishes. For your heartier dishes, we’ve got a biodynamic Bordeaux blend from the right bank. With juicy dark fruit, spice, & a gravely torso, this is the prefect pairing for chili.

Let’s be honest. I don’t care who wins the Super Bowl. I’m just hoping for good wine.

Tasting: Four Roses Private Select Barrel

four_roses_oesf.JPG

--
One of our dear customers, who will remain anonymous, went so far as to state, after having tasted our latest Four Roses Private Select Barrel, that it "had nothing that I don't like about whiskey." I'd take the claim a step further, into the positive. The OESF has everything I do love about whiskey.

It's deep & rich with notes of salty caramel. The nose is woody & floral, a profile that continues onto the palate with an herbaceous edge. For 55 bucks it's a tremendous buy.

But don't take my word for it. We're cracking a bottle on Saturday to share with you fine people. Stop by and taste for yourself why we keep going back to Four Roses. And let us know, does it have everything you love about whiskey? Or does it have nothing you don't love?

Tasting: Mezcal Vago

vago.jpg

We’re pumped to have Francisco Terrazas at the shop this evening, pouring five mezcals from the Vargo portfolio. These are single village mezcals produced traditionally by master mezcaleros. Each is distinct in its own style, taking on different profiles depending on location & variety of agave.

If you’re interested in getting into mezcal, tonight’s tasting will serve as an excellent introduction to the smoky, savory spirit. Mezcal can be challenging, and the good stuff is quite expensive. Tasting with an aficionado make’s a huge difference for the uninitiated, as Francisco will guide through the small villages of Oaxaca, helping you to locate subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) differences in flavor profile and texture.

Tasting: Olé Imports

gus-1_preview.jpeg

Olé Imports was founded in 1999 when their portfolio consisted of only three wines. Today they import over 100 wines from the Spanish Peninsula, and they all share four fundamental elements: "terroir, quality fruit, exceptional winemaking & exceptional value."

Tonight we're hosting David Kemmerer of Olé Imports for a special Tuesday night tasting. David will be pouring three gems from the portfolio, including Gus, pictured above.

Tasting: Winter Whiteout

white_out_2.jpg

--

Sometimes cold weather calls for cold wine. Like swigging lagers in a snowstorm, high-tone whites from northern France & Germany bring out a crispness in the air that's refreshing and completely invigorating. 

Earlier this week, as the temperatures dropped and the snow fell, the idea of a whiteout occurred. And so, this Saturday we’re popping two whites: a rich & complex field blend from Alsace and a mineral-driven, elegant riesling from the Nahe of Germany.

Tasting: Back on that Horse

roilette_4.jpg

Clos de la Roilette Fleurie is a stunner and a personal favorite of mine. Well-structured with an acid backbone & punchy orange fruit, this Beaujolais gives gamay the props it deserves as a noble, age-worthy grape. I selected Clos de la Roilette as this month's Collecting with Kev. If you're interested in tasting the wine before grabbing a couple bottles, make sure to swing by the shop this Saturday between 3-5pm.

Tasting: Serious Holiday Fun

--
Last weekend was fun, but now it's time to think seriously about holiday pairings. The season is upon us and special gatherings demand special wine. That's why we're opening up four single varietal bottles produced from four of the most Noble of grapes: Chardonnay, Gamay, Pinot Noir, & Nebbiolo.

This Saturday will be our last tasting of the year. We're upping the ante. Stop by and help us send 2017 out in style.

Thanksgiving Master Class

Despite my best efforts to slow time, we’re already more than halfway through November, and thus, days from Thanksgiving. Tomorrow is the last Saturday before Turkey Day and so, obviously, we’re going to pour superb wines that complete a Thanksgiving spread. And we’re not holding back.

Tasting: Teutonic Turkeys

From the high hills of the Willamette Valley, Teutonic produces German-inspired wines that just so happen to pair perfectly with Thanksgiving. This Saturday we're opening four, in a tribal turkey tasting that will prime your salivary glands for the fast-approaching holiday.

Riesling and pinot noir are obvious pairing choices for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. As is gewurztraminer, with its spicy aromatics and rich texture. But who would think to pair a gewurz/pinot blend? Who would think to blend those grapes in those first place?

Tasting: Cali Love

--
It is difficult to comprehend the damage done by the wildfires in California, from the point of view of surveyor, assessing the extent of the devastation, and emotionally, grappling with stories and images of destruction and loss. Several customers have approached us inquiring after the welfare of the producers we carry and the welfare of their vineyards. At this point, it is hard to tell. We know that thousands have suffered and been displaced.
 
On Saturday we’re doing our little part to help raise funds for the disaster relief effort. In addition to opening wines from three of our favorite California producers, we’re donating 15% of Saturday’s total sales to Sonoma County Community Foundation. Swing by the shop and drink for a great cause. And if you feel so inclined, click here and donate to the charity we’re supporting.

New California: Donkey & Goat

Eureka! We found another cool California producer! Or, they found their way onto our shelves. You know we love us some Broc Cellars. Now meet the neighbors: Donkey & Goat. Located literally half a block away, on 5th Street in downtown Berkeley, Donkey & Goat have been producing righteous, natural wine since 2004, staying true to terroir and grape variety.
 
On Saturday we’re opening Gadabout, a toasty white rich with notes of apricot and flowers, and Gallivanter, a smokey red highlighted by rosemary and bright acidity. To complete the tasting, we’re also popping a bottle of Tendu. It’s a chillable liter from Matthiasson that should make everyone’s summer crush list.

Partida Creus: Indigenous Spanish Pow-Pow

Partida Creus Tasting

--
When giving recommendations for food and wine pairings, I often think regionally. They eat andouillette in Lyon, pair it with Côtes du Rhône. It's a cool way to offer a comprehensive gastronomic experience.

And the method transcends food. Walking these streets of Nashville this week, melting into the pavement, I was thinking to myself, what pairs well with the misbegotten heat? What do they drink on the blazing rangy coast of the Mediterranean? Simple. Qeixal del llop. And cariñena. And vinyater.

In plain English, we're opening a refreshing white and red from Spain. The red is one of those bottles that benefits from a chill. Radiant, savory and natural, it's bottled without the addition of sulfites. And the white, made from the vinyater grape, is a quaffable zinger, unfined and unfiltered with cutting acidity. That wasn't so complicated, was it?

Broc Cellars: Always on Mission

broc_mission_web.jpg

--
Chris Brockway gets a lot of admiration around here. His wines are better represented on our shelves than any other producer’s. Currently, we carry seven different labels. And that’s really saying something, considering he’s a California producer. But hey, Cali’s been bringing it lately!
 
On Saturday we’re sharing the love, popping two recent arrivals and one standby. Lagrein is inspired by the numerous bottles of rosé from the Alto Adige that Chris has enjoyed over the years. Mission is produced from California’s first cultivated variety, a grape also known as Listán Negro that was brought over by Spanish missionaries. And from the Love Ranch in the Madera Foothills, Love White is a blend of Marsanne, Roussanne, & Viongier.
 
Do it. Come by and proclaim your love. It feels magnificent.

Special Tasting with Olé Imports

Raúl Pérez, winemaker

Raúl Pérez, winemaker

--
Last month David Kemmerer of Olé Imports stopped by with several wines that had not yet entered our market. Three bottles particularly intrigued our palates and resonated with the shop's vibe. David offered to kickoff their Nashville release with a special in-store tasting. Come share in his enthusiasm and insight!
 
Founded in 1999, Olé is an intentional, small importer of Spanish wines. In the words of co-founder Patrick Mata, “I have searched the Spanish peninsula for wines that share four fundamental elements: terroir, quality fruit, exceptional winemaking and, last but not least, wines that present an exceptional value.” It’s not difficult to see why Patrick's wines thrive here.
 
On Thursday we’re opening a zippy, aromatic white from Basque country. As singular as the region it comes from, this wine blends riesling and folle blanche with the native hondarribi zuri, offering round texture that complements the racy indigenous variety. We’re also opening a mencía from legendary winemaker Raúl Pérez and a garnarcha and cariñena (aka grenache and carignan) blend from the Montsant region.
