THURSDAY NIGHT TASTING, 12/5/13
New Wines from the New World
Please join us tonight, 6-9 pm, for a tasting with our friend Kevin from the Vine Collective with bread from She Wolf and cheese from Eastern District.
Kerner Estate Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, New Zealand
Grapes are grown organically, hand-picked, and pressed whole cluster before the juice is transferred and split between stainless steel and neutral oak barrels for fermentation. Once blended, the resulting wine is full bodied and rich- the ultimate “winter white”, stellar with potato leek soup and fish stew.
Birichino St. George’s Vineyard Pinot Noir, Central Coast, California
We love wild wine! This all-natural Pinot Noir is terroir driven and full of California character. The poor soil of the growing region in the Santa Cruz mountains yeilds small amounts of tiny, resilient grapes and winemakers Alex Krause and John Locke use this to their advantage. The wine they make from their hearty grapes is real and raw, with exuberant aromatics, notes of candied cherries and vibrant acidity.
Adelaida “End Post” Cabernet Sauvignon, Paso Robles, California
This Cali Cab is a beast in a bottle. Pop the cork, and let him breathe for a while, and he behaves nicely. If you give him some red meat, he’s even better. Deep in color with a spicy aroma and not-so-subtle hints of black fruit, cassis, and cocoa in the glass, End Post will keep you warmer (and happier) than a space heater all winter long.

ART OPENING: GAIL PEACHIN
Tuesday, Dec. 3, 6-8 pm
Please join us tonight, 6-8 pm, for a celebration of the beautiful and haunting collages that will grace our walls for the month of December! Our artist, Gail Peachin, Lily’s amazing mom, splits her time between her beautiful old farmhouse in the Catskills and Fern, her eclectic antique store in Hudson, with visits to Brooklyn peppered in for good measure. This is her second December show at Dandelion, and her pieces make pretty amazing gifts for anyone on your list or your own bare walls. We’ll have plenty of wine and treats, and Gail will be here to mix and mingle!

NEW BOXED WINE ALERT
Pascal Lambert Chinon 2012, $44
"Created in 1987 by Beatrice and Pascale, this 14 hectare domaine was one of the originals in the organic/biodynamic movement in the Loire. Soils are clay-limestone, gravel, and flint and grapes come primary from the area called Cravant-les-Coteaux west of Chinon. Wines are produced without the addition of yeast or enzymes. The entry level bottling is not hit with any SO2 at all."
We LOVE this earthy, mineral-rich Cabernet Franc-in-a-box! It’s meaty and dark, but medium bodied and fresh on it’s feet. Winter seems to be here, like it or not, and we heartily suggest having some wine on hand! Each box holds the equivalent of 4 bottles of wine, so stocking up is easier than ever.
