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
Rockledge ‘The Rocks’ Cabernet Sauvignon 2009: Velvety red plum, currants and cherry infused with subtle aromas of dark chocolate and mint. Region: Napa Valley, California. Goes with – Red Meat! There is a magical symbiotic relationship between the tannins in red wine and the fat and proteins in red meat. They each truly make the other taste better. Price: $32.99. Why we chose it: This wine has all the stuffing that you want in a Napa Valley Cabernet and compares quite favorably with the cult cabs in the $50 plus range. A great holiday gift idea!
