Barsha’s Thanksgiving Wine Guide! ☻

Turkey Day Whites!

20161110_125122

 Freiher Langwerth Riseling, Germany 2015

Exotic fruit aromas. Juicy palate with a touch of honey, pear, citrus, apple. Big!
Riesling: A white wine that may either be bone dry or fairly sweet, excellent with any dishes that are spicy, salty or sweet. Whether from Alsace, Germany or Washington – Riesling wines are a top pick white wine for pairing with Thanksgiving dinner. Riesling’s innate flavors of apple, apricot, honey and its clarifying acidity give it a significant pairing edge with the likes of sweet potatoes, turkey meat and spice-laden or herb-filled stuffing.

Ravines Dry Riesling, FInger Lakes NY 2014

Aromas of white flowers, pear.
Apple, citrus, pear with mineral finish. Delightfully dry.

 Brooks Pinot Blanc, Willamette, OR 2015

Juicy fruit flavors with hints of candied citrus, hints of cinnamon & pepper. Light mint finish.
Pinot Blanc: refreshing, ever friendly wine that will make those fried onion topped green beans taste more amazing. Great with smoked & roasted dishes or alone as a before dinner drink. 

Pomar Juction Viognier, CA 2015
Dry, crisp Viognier with a tropical and floral nose. It is a fruit forward with lime and pear flavors on the palate, with a lingering peach and honeysuckle finish. 
Albarino and Viognier, while they may not boast the best initial name recognition of say…Chardonnay, these white wine varieties. They offer the perfect opportunity to shake up the Thanksgiving table and take your guests on a little wine adventure, while still maintaining perfect pairing power.

Burgans Albarino, Rias Baixas, Spain 2015

Pineapple, mango aromas. Supple & juicy palate of citrus, zest. Long finish.


Turkey Day Reds!

20161110_132455

Couloir 2013 Pinot Noir

Spice, raspberry, crisp.
Pinot Noir: This red wine is a traditional favorite for Thanksgiving. Pinot Noir’s subtle earthy undertones and often mushroom inspired flavors surround the fruit features of the wine and tend to show well with the traditional flavors of turkey and stuffing.

Fleurie Ponciago Gamay Beaujolais, France 2012

Cherry, blueberry, mineral, delicate length.
Beaujolais Nouveau: A light, fruity red wine, from the Gamay grape, that goes quite well with turkey and all of the fixings. This wine is released from France on the third Thursday of November, just in time to highlight your Thanksgiving feast!

Hendry Zinfandel Blocks 7 & 22, Napa, CA 2012

Ripe blueberry, cherry, spice, oak, chocolate finish.
Zinfandel: A fuller bodied red wine that ups the intensity from a Pinot Noir, but still maintains a balancing effect on many traditional Thanksgiving side dishes. This would be a great wine pick for those looking for a heartier red wine with the capacity to accommodate spice, bitter and sweet flavor profiles.

Vietti “La Crena” Barbera d’asti, Piedmont, Italy

Raspberry, vanilla, spice, lush toasty palate.
http://www.bonappetit.com/drinks/wine/article/thanksgiving-wine-barbera-italian-piedmont

Cornas “Les Barcillants” Syrah, Rhone, France 2011
violet & rose aromas, palate dominated by lush plum, blackberry cherry & some floral.
Syrah/Shiraz: The Syrah grape can bring a spicy edge or a meaty character to the table often increasing the complexity, while graciously handling the cornucopia of flavors in a traditional Thanksgiving meal. The prevalent peppery notes of Syrah will partner well with the herb-infused stuffing and both the white and dark turkey meat.


Turkey Day Dessert Wines!

20161110_134741-2

Porto Kopke Vintage 2000, Port, Portugal

Dense ripe fruit with plum, black cherry & spice.

Kopke Colheita Port, Portugal 1989

Ripe cherry, pecan aromas. Candied cherry, dried apricots, firewood honey finish. 90pts Cellartracker

Philbert Dovecote Grande Champagne Rare Cask Finish Cognac, Sherry cask,France

Aromas of flowers, vanilla, banana, ginger. With jasmine, marzipan, ginger spice notes. Hints of cigar & pineapple fruit finish. 

Lazzaroni Amaro Liquer, Italy

Flavoured with herbs and orange peel aiding very much in stimulating the appetite and cleansing the palate. Lazzaroni Amaro has an aromatic nose, sweet with a slight bitter finish, neither too thin nor too pastry and a rich, soft, clear, amber color. Add over ice or neat. 

Carpano Antica Formula Vermouth, Italy

Great on the rocks with an orange slice or a special Manhattan.
Very Fine ingredients of Madagascan vanilla, saffron, Italian Wormwood, Burnt Sugar. 
Nose: bouquet of vanilla with spicy, citrusy and dried fruit notes of almond, raisins and cloves.
Palate: well-rounded, rich vanilla taste that picks up the aromas from the nose. Combines well with the bitter orange, dates, cocoa beans and saffron flavours.

We’re in “Our Southbay Mag”!

sb__souk_odonnell-0228

Hey friends, we’re excited to announce that we’re featured in “Our Southbay” magazine! 

“On their last trip to Tunisia, they had an opportunity to establish and build on relationships with the ceramic makers, weavers, sewers and store owners of the souks—or marketplaces—that provide many of the handcrafted items they sell. “It’s an added bonus to help support all of these deserving artisans,” says Lenora…The Tunisia of Adnen’s youth “has come a long, long way,” he says. “Tunisia was the little country that created the ripple effect of change within many neighboring countries.” Little did they know how much power they really had as a people.”

Crazy bout’ Sherry!

20161004_111524

Check out our great Sherry selection! Did you know that Sherry is a fortified wine made from white grapes grown near Jerez de la Frontera in Andalusia, Spain? After fermentation, the base wine is fortified w/ grape spirit, thus increasing its alcohol content. Therefore it serves a great aperitif! 

“Sherry’s magnificence comes from the fact that, like Champagne, true Sherry can only be made in one tiny corner of the world. Many imitators have tried to replicate the salty, nutty, and aromatic profile of Sherry throughout history, but the unique winds, humidity, soil and seasonal changes in Andalucía give a singular character to the wines produced there.”

New Jeni’s Icecream Flavors!!!

unnamed

Check out our new Jeni’s Icecream flavors available in our retail & wine bar! 

 

“Our ice creams have a uniquely smooth texture and buttercream body, with bright flavor and clean finish (we don’t use synthetic flavorings, dyes, or off-the-shelf mixes). You may notice the absence of a long list of stabilizers and emulsifiers on our label; we prefer the more complex process of building texture and flavor without them. Our flavors stand alone straight from the pint or melt perfectly into a fruit pie, birthday cake, crumble, crisp, or cookie—the perfect accessory for your dessert.”
