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..
Cabernet Franc Wölffer Estate: Earthy, rustic, floral nose with medium weight richness and a ripe long finish. Region: The Hamptons, Long Island (New York. Price: $18.99. Goes with: Call me crazy, but it’s February. Have this with a good meatloaf or a beef stew. Why I chose it: Wines like this will make New Yorkers proud that our state is the second largest wine producer in the country. We all need to drink more of our local wine.
This is bottle 9 in our series.
