This week's tasting will feature three Bordeaux varietal reds from around the world.
2015 Chateau Reignac, Bordeaux Superieur
This has become something of a cult wine since it came in second in a blind tasting of the top Bordeaux chateaus at a restaurant in Paris in 2005, besting Chateau Petrus, Chateau Latour and all the top Bordeaux except Chateau Cheval Blanc - and of course, it costs about 1/100th what Chateau Petrus does!
2018 Tuck Beckstoffer Cabernet Sauvignon Est.75
Grown in Mendocino and Lake Counties, this Cabernet is filled with aromas of fresh cherry and cinnamon. On the palate, it’s silky smooth with notes of strawberry and blackberry, culminating in a long, lingering finish with just a hint of dark chocolate from a year spent aging on French oak.
2012 Warwick Estate Three Cape Ladies
So technically this is not a Bordeaux varietal red because it is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Pinotage, which is a uniquely South African grape. But I hope you will humor me, because it is one of my personal favorite wines, very affordable, and at 8 years of age really singing!
Remember, you can pick up the wines prior to the conference with curbside pick up, or we will deliver them within 15 miles, no charge.
If you are not local, we will ship the three wines to you in time for the tasting. Remember that, on orders of $500 or more, we are not charging for shipping during the quarantine.
Or, if you'd prefer to watch the tasting before purchasing the wines, email our wine director at Hoyt@sunfishcellars.com, and we will provide you with the link and password to log on.
We hope you will join us each Thursday at 6:30! We have an amazing lineup of tastings scheduled!
