OUR ANNUAL BENCHMARK TASTING
On Monday March 16th at 7 pm we will feature our annual Bench Mark wine event.
We will taste 6 red world class wines which will answer the question “What does a really magnificent Cabernet Sauvignon , or Pinot Noir, or French Bordeaux taste like?"
These are not $20 wines, conveniently priced and easily forgotten.
These will be the wines you will compare to for many years to come. They will become your BENCHMARK for quality.
So when you host hands you a glass of "something red" which was on "special" at the grocery store
YOU, oh discerning one , will know that it is a left bank obscure red from someone's garage, retailing around $15.00. YOU will smile and ask to be directed to the wine cellar where YOU will pick out a St. Emilion or Pauillac because YOU know how a magnificent Bordeaux should taste.
(YOU probably won't be invited back again...but consider that a plus)
We will be enjoying:
Stag’s Leap Cabernet
Chateau Simard St Emilion
Chateau Petit Mouton Rothschild
Haverford Pinot Noir
Louis Latour Pommard
Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino
Thirty Five dollars per person Couples $60.00
You will not have an opportunity to experience these world class wines at one time
Our tasting can only accommodate 24 people. Your paid reservation is your entree to the event.

March alerts us that we have not succumbed to the melancholia of winter. We are still here. We have survived most of the winter with our taste buds intact. We deserve , we richly deserve a treat just for the fact of making it through the minus 15 degrees which is Cleveland. Browns didin't make it...the Indians did not make it but we did !
So to treat ourselves and reaffirm that there is something worth living for...may I offer this month's edition of the Conoisseur Club , CAIN FIVE, one of the most sought after Napa Valley Cabernet.
Eight 6 packs were released to the state of Ohio...we bought 6 six packs of them.
There is a back story to Cain Five...I met the wine maker's wife several years ago as she was the marketing arm of the company. She was promoting the wine with our distributor and I asked how was the wine rated? She immediately said...we don't submit our wines for ratings....I would rather have people in the business, in the restaurants, ask to purchase the wines rather than a panel who are tasting ATHOUSAND wines and passing judgment. I was hooked.
This is an extraordinary wine to be cellared and enjoyed WHEN the Browns wine the Super bowl, right after the INDIANS clinch the World Series. Drink it during the final championship game with CAVS up 4 games to nill. The wine will taste even better .
This month was a once in a lifetime opportunity to obtain and offer FOUR different vintages of the highly acclaimed Vieux Telegraph red chateau neuf du pape.
At the GOLD LEVEL we will be sending out one bottle of either a 2008, 2009, 2010, or 2011.
These are all rated in the 90's by the Wine Spectator or Robert Parker's Wine Advocate,
Along with the Vieux Telegraph, the Gold Members will receive a bottle of the younger vine Vieux Telegram, also highly acclaimed.
At the SILVER LEVEL you will receive one bottle of the Vieux Telegraph and at the BRONZE LEVEL
you will received the Vieux Telegram, a young Chateau Neuf du Pape which is drinking well now.
I expect to be doing a in store tasting of these wines in the next two months, so stay tuned.
DON'T drink your selection until you come to the tasting and enjoy the wines.
