WEDNESDAY NIGHT TASTE APRIL 24, 2013

BR Cohn

2009 BR Cohn Cabernet Sauvignon

What better way to celebrate the mid week than wine tasting, beer tasting, live music and a diiner special at The Wine Gallery. Tonight we are offering five great wines, five fantastic beers, live music from Triad and a flat bread or whole wheat pizza dinner deal. Stop in for a taste and a tune from 5:30pm to 8:30pm.

Tonight’s featured wines are:

2010 B.R. Cohn Silver Label Chardonnay, North Coast, California

Packed with pear, apple, and citrus aromas and shows exceptional depth and body. It offers rich flavors of green apple and lemon and is surrounded by toasty French oak, followed by a crisp, clean, lingering finish.

2011 McManis Family Vineyards Pinot Noir, California

Light purple amethyst in color with a lustrous hue. Fresh strawberry, cherry pie filling and black cherry aromas, joined by hazelnut and vanilla bouquet. Bountiful sweet red fruit flavors are perceptible as the round silky wine passes through the mouth. Caramelized sugar and Vanilla, lent to the wine from oak aging, are perceptible in the finish.

2011 Chateau Pesquie ‘Terrasses’ Ventoux Rhone Valley Vineyards, Ventoux Protegee, France

Southern rhone red wine of grenache and syrah. Deep ruby color, soft and elegant with red fruit flavors and spice.

2009 B.R. Cohn Silver Label Cabernet Sauvignon, North Coast, California

A blending of grapes grown from select North Coast vineyards. This combination offers full, rich flavors of berry, cassis and black cherry with hints of vanilla in the background.

2010 Emeritus Hallenberg Ranch, Estate Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley, CA.

Produced wines with great clarity and focus, and appear to be friendlier, extroverted wines with acidity as their backbone.  This joyful Pinot Noir has warm and inviting aromas with a luscious palate mixed with red and black fruit.

 

Tonight’s featured beers are:

Red Hook Seasonal Series Wise Cracker Wit, ABV 5.3%, Portsmouth, New Hampshire   (6 pack)

Redhook’s twist on the Belgian style is the addition of fresh ginger, which adds a refreshing snappiness to this lighter-bodied wheat beer. Redhook Wit is perfect for warm summer months of outdoor BBQ-ing, sitting by the pool, or just taking a break by hanging inside enjoying the AC and watching old re-runs of Gilligan’s Island.

Widmer Brothers Alchemy Ale, ABV 5.8%, Portland, Oregon   (6 pack)

Alchemy Ale melds years of experimentation and our special Alchemy hop blend, in a pure expression of brewing art and science. Join us in unlocking the mystery to the perfectly balanced, perfectly hopped ale. Alchemy Ale has a bright, distinct hop character balanced with hints of caramel and a remarkably smooth finish.

Widmer Brothers Rotator IPA Series, O’Ryelly IPA, ABV 6.4%, Portland, Oregon   (6 pack)

O’Ryely IPA is a big, punchy IPA with notable hoppiness and just a touch of caramel malty sweetness. Brewed with rye and Nelson Sauvin hops imported from New Zealand’s South Island, the beer features subtle rye spiciness and fruity, berry-like aroma and flavor.

Widmer Brothers Nelson Imperial IPA, ABV 8.6%, Portland, Oregon   (4 pack)

Take your taste buds on a journey to the far side of the world. New Zealand’s legendary Nelson Sauvin hop gives us a powerful hoppy character, but none of the heaviness you sometimes find in Imperial IPAs. The result is a big brew with a sweet, malty character that perfectly balances the intense hop aroma and flavor.

Widmer Brothers Reserve Raspberry Russian Imperial Stout 2013, ABV 9.3%, Portland, Oregon

An extremely rich and complex beer, the addition of raspberries during the fermentation process results in an almost purplish opaque color with a beautiful brown head. Warm chocolate and roasty notes compliment the hop bitterness.

House fresh greens salad

Your choice of either tomato basil and fresh mozzarella flat bread or Sausage, ham and pepperoni whole wheat pizza
