We have a couple of big holidays this week and what better way to celebrate them than with friends, family, food, and (of course) libations! For those of you looking for some Kosher grapes, look no further than Golan Cabernet Sauvignon. Made in Israel, Golan exhibits pleasing cherry and berry fruit notes, layered with hints of spice, herbs, vanilla and American oak. This flavorful and drinkable medium-bodied wine is a perfect addition to any meal! However, anyone searching for a little humor this Sunday needs to check out Pipeworks Easter Bunny vs. Unicorn Wheat Wine. This hoppy American style wheat wine, has a nice, full body, with a huge wheat base. It is hopped with a surprising combination of Amarillo and Hallertau Blanc for really nice, funky aroma. Citrus and white grape aromas abound with this one.
On Wednesday, Don from Original Wine Company is back and pouring some of his best wines yet! Castellroig Brut Cava, Labbe Vin de Savoie Abymes, Fouquette Provence Rose, and Domaine La Blaque Red blend will all be opened for your tasting pleasure. Castellroig is a small producer who is so careful with their production and so caring for the land that they were the first winery in Spain to be given the designation Vi de Terrer. It signifies that they go above and beyond organic and sustainable agriculture. All of the TLC really comes through in the wines too. The Brut has incredible clarity and intensity of flavors. Light straw-colored with an attractive nose of mineral, biscuit, and apple. On the palate it has a solid core of fruit, crisp, racy flavors, and a refreshing finish. Get ready for a preview of what you will be drinking all this spring and summer!
This Thursday, The Noble Grape is very excited to be hosting Brooklyn Brewery’s MASH! From 6 - 8, Andrew will be tasting out Brooklyn Brewery Lager, Summer Ale, and Sorachi Ace. Mix all these awesome beers with some of The Noble Grape’s coolest staff members and we are guaranteed to have a most excellent night!
Finally on Friday, Chris from Raya Imports will hold a Chilean themed wine tasting. Aylin Sauvignon Blanc, Botalcura Crazy Quail and Botalcura Syrah/Malbec blend, as well as Chucaro Cabernet Sauvignon/Malbec shall all be there, just begging to be drank… and if you have any brains in your cranium, you WILL drink them up!
