Our friend André Hueston Mack, winemaker and illustrator extraordinaire, is back tonight for another fun tasting at Dandy, 6-9 pm… and he’s got something for everyone. André has penned an awesome coloring book for foodies both young and young-at-heart! “Small Thyme Cooks” is chock-full of drawings and activities featuring famous (and infamous) chefs from New York and beyond. Re-imagine Sam Mason’s tattoos, hunt for mushrooms with Anthony Bourdain, and menu plan with Eric Ripert- no reservations needed. Come celebrate the release of his first volume tonight while tasting three Mouton Noir wines from the Oregon and Washington (described below by the man himself). We’ll have cheese from Eastern District and bread from She Wolf.
Love Drunk Rosé, Willamette Valley 2013
"The 2013 Love Drunk is an intoxicating rosé. Much like new love, it clouds the brain, causes eyes to sparkle, cheeks to glow, blood pressure to rise, and lips to pucker. Provocative aromas of strawberry and raspberry, followed by refreshing flavors of wild strawberry, watermelon rind, and a hint of kiwi." $18
Horseshoes and Hand Grenades Red 2010
"Horseshoes & Handgrenades is fruit-driven, full-bodied complex red blend sourced from Southern Oregon and Red Mountain Washington. The rich, ripe, voluptuous fruit comes from Syrah and Tempranillo from Oregon with just enough Washington Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot to give it complexity and structure. Think cherry pits and leather whips!" $19
Oregogne Pinot Noir, Willammette Valley 2011
"2012 Oregogne, Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley: Blended from two single vineyards in the Eola-Amity Hills A.V.A. at different elevations. Bright cherry fruit, blueberry, bramble and sous-bois, followed by flowing minerality from start to finish" $45
