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..
Fabre Montmayou Cabernet Sauvignon 2010: Silky red currant, plum and cherry accented with hints of chocolate, black tea and spice. Region: Mendoza, Argentina. Goes with: Blue cheese, grilled steak, ALL red meat. Price: $15. Why We Chose it: Argentina knows a thing or two about red meat and the perfect red wines to pair with them, and this one is an exceptional value.
