This month’s Connoisseur Club offers the 10th anniversary Library Selection for Silver Oak. Six 6 packs were released two weeks ago and we purchased, I believe, 5 of them. The Alexander Valley Silver Oak tends to be a softer variety, very approachable now and in the years to come.
I am trying to get more, and some older vintages and possible offer a vertical tasting of the cabernet sauvignon.
But, for the moment, you have the 2006 to enjoy.
SEPTEMBER WINE TASTING WE’VE MOOOOOVED…TO TUESDAY
We skipped August as a tasting month for several reasons. Very warm, many of our customers were coming or going on vacation, or taking kids back to school, or, like some whom we will not mention, were returning from Burgundy or Italy after several weeks of well deserved repose.
We are sliding smoothly into Fall, but that’s going to be maybe 6 weeks away. But we should prepare.
Thus our next tasting on TUESDAY September 15 , 7 PM will be Comfort Foods and Smooth Wines to prepare us for Fall’s varied cuisine.
What I am looking for are wines, mostly red, with a low tannin base, wines you can enjoy without checking the vintage charts, or the checkbook. Just daily wines which pair well with hearty foods, Cioppino (Italian Fish stew), meatloaf, pot roast, hearty soups, vegetarian fare.…that kind of cuisine. Flannel shirts, comfort food and wine pairings.
We will be tasting 6 reds and two whites. I will include recipes to complement these wines, and we will be serving some of these dishes to complement our wines.
It will be loads of fun, a great learning experience, and will increase your culinary skills as well as oenological prowess.
Date: TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 15
