The Calling Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2015

We love great wine. And we love great deals. So, when we score a great deal on a great wine we get all excited. This week we have the pleasure of telling you all about The Calling Pinot Noir which we scored a ridiculous deal on thanks to a supplier who needed to move some cases. This heady Pinot begins with a wonderful nose replete with aromas of roses, violets, cola, and toasty oak. One quick swirl and sniff is all it’ll take to quicken your pulse and start your mouth watering with anticipation for that first telltale sip. And what a sip it is! The first thing you’ll notice is a big ole pop of ripe red berries with raspberries and pomegranates leading the charge. Those are quickly followed up by extravagant layers of blood orange zest, toasted graham crackers, cedar, and kirsch liqueur. The wine is quite rich, especially for Pinot, and it shows some obvious evidence of barrel aging which makes it an ideal candidate for pairing with hearty meals like bouillabaisse, duck confit, or a really nice dry aged ribeye. Drink this luxurious Red while it’s raining and snowing outside this weekend or toss it in the cellar for up to 5 years to watch it evolve into something even more impressive than it is today. But don’t delay, we only managed to get a handful of cases at this silly low price. So there is a high likelihood that it won’t last through the weekend.
Food Pairing:
One of my favorite cool weather meals is white beans with roasted red peppers, diced kale, and crumbled italian sausage slowly simmered in good homemade chicken stock. Depending on my mood I’ll serve it over basmati rice or cornbread and I always garnish it with some shaved Reggiano and a couple of drips of great balsamic vinegar. It’s such simple comfort food and yet the flavors can be quite profound if you have good stock to use as the base. I think you’ll find that it provides a perfect foil for a vibrant young Pinot like this week’s special.

Wines of Substance Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Every once in a great while an inexpensive Red is truly profound. The 2016 Substance Cabernet from acclaimed vintner Charles Smith of Washington State is just such a wine. You probably already know that Washington State is turning out some incredible vales but you may not have heard about the killer juice that Charles Smith has been making out there. Take a moment to acquaint yourself with the 2016 Wines of Substance Cab, an entry level cuvee for Smith if you can believe that, and you’ll instantly become entranced by it. The nose is freaking outstanding with blockbuster scents of wood smoke, vanilla, crushed thyme, walnut liqueur, toasted oak, and graham cracker pie crust. As good as the nose is, the palate is even better. It is firm and tannic with a honest to goodness Cabernet style about it. Really bright red cherries and raspberry puree kick things off. Then, on the finish, lush blueberry jam, tar, tobacco, and crushed granite all make lingering appearances framed up by well balanced acidity and ripe tannin. If there’s a fault here, it’s that the wine is is a bit young. Decanting will help soften the edges for sure, but this wine should really start to blossom after 2 or 3 years in the cellar and should drink well for a decade or so if you have the patience to forget about it that long.
Food Pairing:
Cabernet is planted all over the world because it grows well in a variety of climates and turns out delicious and versatile red wine. This week’s special is exceptionally well built Cabernet. So you can pair it up confidently with a ton of different meals. This one has a distinctly smoky edge on the nose that makes me think it would be a tremendous pairing for traditional Texas bbq brisket. When brisket is done right it can really be ethereal. And when Cab is done right it can be pretty special also. So, I suggest a plate of thinly sliced brisket with all the classic trimmings accompanied by a glass (or three) of this outstanding Columbia Valley Red, the 2016 Wines of Substance Cabernet.

Pali Summit Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2015

Drinking great Pinot can be a little like joining a cult. Once you’ve gotten committed to it, it can be a driving force that commands all of your energy and enthusiasm. This week we’ve got a full on Rajneesh kind of Pinot for you, the 2015 Pali Summit Sta Rita Hills Pinot. This freaking wine is so engaging, so compelling, that once it’s in your glass it will captivate you as completely as any wine we’ve tasted all year. The nose is rambunctious, rambling from sun baked plums to rose water to cola, tar, cedar, and right on through to Chinese 5 spice powder. Smelling it is a study in all that fancy sommelier lingo because it is so intensely perfumed. The palate is similarly effusive with a bold and unctuous style that delivers densely packed layers of raspberry puree, strawberry liqueur, craizins, and red currant jam that slowly unfold to reveal more delicate hints of vanilla, anise, camphor, and pipe tobacco as the wine glides seamlessly onto the finish. Whatever your Easter table is going to look like, it ought to have a bottle of the 2015 Pali Summit on it. I know ours will.
Food Pairing:
Goodness, this Pinot is full of bang and zoom! It’s got enough stuffing to stand up to the heartiest meals but it still offers the kind of levity that affords it the opportunity to pair with lighter meals like salmon, roast chicken, or a classic cheese plate. At our house it’s bound to find itself placed alongside a mixed grill with an assortment of simply seasoned meats and veggies cooked over really high heat until the begin to blacken and blister.

Nassos Priorat 2014

The warm, dry climate of the Priorat region in Spain provides picture perfect growing conditions for Garnacha. This week we have an outstanding example of old vine, dry farmed, Garnacha from one of our all time favorite Spanish winemakers, Javier Rodriguez. This sumptuous Red will wow you with it’s exotic spice, lush red berry fruit, and exceptionally persistent minerality. The wine deftly bridges the gap between delicate and bold by offering a lovely nose perfumed with hints of rose and crushed cherries interspersed with layers of allspice, thyme, and sun baked earth. On the palate, the wine feels buoyant and alive as it delivers abundant flavors of raspberry puree, red currants, and kirsch liqueur. This is classic Priorat Garnacha and it offers a pure and unadulterated view into the finest this ancient winegrowing region is capable of! Elegantly structured, supple, and yet full of enthusiasm, it will provide the kind of layered and evolving drinking experience that is sure to strike a chord with anyone who loves Old World Reds. Grab this gem before it’s gone and drink it over the next 3 or 4 years.
Food Pairing:
Great Spanish Garnacha like this week’s “Wine of the Week”, the 2015 Nassos Priorat, is so darn good to drink. I think you’ll find that it pairs up really well with tons of different foods. For me, it would be most at home as the star of the show by pairing it with a plate of cured meats and cheeses. But I think you’d find that it was an excellent foil for homemade pizzas, grilled sausage and peppers, or even a hearty seafood dish like a cioppino. This really is one of those wines that you’re going to find yourself reaching for over and over again because it is so darn good to drink.
