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
Alvaro Palacios ‘Camins del Priorat’ 2010: Silky red currant, raspberry and cherry perfumed with cedar, café au lait, chocolate and candied violets. Region: Priorat, Spain. Goes with: Lamb, rabbit, manchego, cassoulet. Price: $24.99. Why we chose it: This wine tastes like Spain and as the evenings start to get chillier, that’s not a bad place to be transported to.
