For 12 weeks, we feature a wine, and include tasting notes and suggestions for pairings. At the end of the 12 weeks, we’ll review our Mixed Case, and recap the choices. Each mixed case will be chosen by a local wine shop owner, who will also become our wine expert-in-residence during his or her tenure. (So should we need recommendations for a holiday, for example. we’ll ask.) We’ll get a new expert for each case. Right now, we’re working on our Mixed Case from Wine Geeks in Armonk..
LoHud Wine of the Week
Shinn Estate Vineyards ‘Red’ NV: This juicy merlot-driven blend from Long Island shows notes of Bing cherry, blackberry, black pepper and licorice. Goes with: Rabbit, mushrooms and roast turkey. Price: $13.99. Why we chose it: Shinn Estate is one of our favorite New York producers; farming organically, they make remarkably consistent, world class wines, and this is a great value for a New York State wine.
