WEDNESDAY NIGHT TASTE MARCH 27, 2013

2011 Acentor Garnacha

2011 Acentor Label

 

This weeks wine tasting will feature two different Spanish garnacha (grenache) wines. We have paired these wines with an oven roasted citrus glazed chicken entree with fingerling roasted potato, a rich wild mushroom and rice soup. And to start off the evening, pan sear sea scallops with a white wine sauce paired with Talbott Estate Grown Chardonnay from Monterey, California.

 

2011 Talbott Estate Grown Chardonnay, Kali Hart, Monterey, California

Rich, inviting nose shows bright tropical notes that continue on the palate, where refreshing flavors of pineapple and honeydew are complimented by refreshing acidity. A generous mid-palate leads to a long citrus and tropical fruit finish with hints of French oak and minerality

2011 Sean Minor 4Bears Pinot Noir, Central Coast, California

Medium bodied wine which displays aromas of strawberry, cherry cola and raspberry fruit. On the palate, the Pinot offers bright and approachable flavors of cherry and strawberry combined with subtle layers of spice. The bright acidity combined with sweet oak results in a lingering finish.

2008 Monte Vicor Garnacha, Calatayud, Spain

This chewy wine offers notes of raspberry, strawberry, red cherry, pepper, spice and caramel.

2011 Acentor Garnacha, Calatayud, Spain

Aromas of ripe blueberries with a spicy undercurrent and a fresh, medium bodied character with soft tannins.

2008 Field Stone Cabernet Sauvignon, Alexander Valley, California

An expressive, prime Alexander Valley Cabernet that opens up with seductive, spicy, varietal aromas that follow through with impressive mouth-filling flavors of ripe plums, Bing cherries and blackberries.
