WEDNESDAY NIGHT TASTE FEBRUARY 27, 2013

2010 Midnight Cellars 'Nebula' Cabernet Sauvignon

2010 Midnight Cellars ‘Nebula’ Cabernet Sauvignon

What could be better than a mid week wine tasting and a four course dinner featuring Lobster Quesadillas with chili dipping sauce paired with Leonard Kreusch Spatlese, Rheinhessen, Germany or Roast Chorizo stuffed Adobo pork loin paired with Midnight Cellars Full Moon red blend or Nebula Cabernet Sauvignon. Other featured wines include:

 

2009 Leonard Kreusch Spatlese, Rheinhessen, Germany

This late-harvest white offers a fresh floral bouquet with nice concentration. The mineral notes pair well with the ripe peach and melon flavors and give the wine a pleasant finish.

2010 Maremra Toscano Rosso, Italy

Deep ruby-red color, rich perfume of ripe red fruit. It strikes the palate with its harmony and fullness, which blends well with the spicy taste.

2010 Finca Flichman Malbec Reserva, Argentina

Deep violet with blue shades. Complex aroma. A combination of violets, cherries and sour cherries in oak. Concentrated with flavors of black berry fruits, ripe plums and tobacco leaves. Complex finish with remarkable, sweet tannins and long lasting aftertaste.

2009 Midnight Cellars Full Moon, Paso Robles, California

An approachable, fun, lighter bodied and everyday drinking wine. Lavender and red fruit jump out of the glass. Fresh raspberries and strawberries lead into the softer tannin structure with oak, anise and spice on the finish.

2009 Midnight Cellars Nebula Cabernet Sauvignon, Paso Robles, California

An earthy sensation that screams Cabernet as you smell its classic aromas of cassis, cherries, and toasted oak. With its complex fruit character, youthful tannins, yet silky texture, this wine is approachable now.
