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 chosen by Jeffrey Wooddy, manager of Rochambeau Wines & Liquors in Dobbs Ferry..
LoHud Wine of the Week
Rose of Refosco, Channing Daughters: A beautiful, rich rose, with a provocatively complex nose and a long, dry finish.Region: Bridgehampton, Long Island. Price: $18.99. Goes with: It’s wintertime. Make a hearty soup like Minestrone or a seafood chowder with this one. Why I chose it: As retailers, we search every day for the best wines in every category. If those wines can be from our own New York State, all the better.
This is bottle 5 in our series.
