Bordeaux Tasting

Bordeaux Tasting with Christophe Dumoulin of Chateau & Estate

September 17, 2009 from 6:30-8:30pm

Bordeaux is one of the most renowned regions for wine production in the world. With the release of the new 2006 vintage, we will be hosting a Bordeaux Tasting with Christophe Dumoulin of Chateau & Estate. Christophe will show a collection of Left Bank Bordeaux wines, speak about the producers and educate all of us on the Left Bank Bordeaux wine legacy and wine making traditions. We will taste wines from the 2004, 2005, and 2006 vintages. This type of vintage tasting will make it interesting to compare the variations between vintages as well as the differences in regional terroir.

We’re really excited about this tasting. Bordeaux wines are still the benchmark for quality wine production all over the world and the pinnacle of refined Old World wines. This is going to be one of the most informative tastings we’ve ever had (and not to mention, delicious!).

The Tasting is Thursday September 17, 2009 from 6:30-8:30pm and the cost of the tasting is $30 per person. This tasting is definitely going to fill up quickly, so call and reserve your seats ASAP!

Chateau Lamothe and Cabernet Tasting

Hello Everyone!

Next week we have two awesome tastings planned for Friday, September 11. From 5-7pm we will have Chateau Lamothe pouring their wines at the tasting bar!! The wines from this producer are some of the best value French wines that I have tasted in a long time. The tasting is free, so stop in to taste some seriously delicious wines from Bordeaux.

After the Chateau Lamothe tasting, from 7-9pm we will be hosting a Cabernet Sauvignon tasting. We’re really excited about this tasting because we love Cabernet and there is some really excellent stuff being produced in the US. The producers from the west coast are constantly improving their wine making techniques and the wines are a true reflection of the quality fruit and wines being produced. The wines we will be showing are all silky, rich and delicious, and with fall right around the corner we will all be drinking more red wines. Here’s the line-up for the tasting:

Cartlidge & Browne 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles
ExLibris Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 (Washington)
Januik 2006 Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Longboard Vineyards 2005 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Paradigm 2005 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon (By the wine maker of Screaming Eagle!)
Whitehall Lane 2005 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon
Conn Valley Vineyards 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon
Johnson Family 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon
Adele 2007 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon
Justin Isosceles 2005 Paso Robles

The cost of this tasting is $30 per person and reservations are required.
This is not a tasting to be missed!! It will definitely be a great way to kick off the fall season.

Dobbes Family Estate Syrah 2005

Hello fellow wine lovers!

We have another awesome new wine to introduce to all of you, the Dobbes Family Estate Syrah Grand Assemblage 2005. This is a fantastic wine with luscious smoky and cocoa aromas along with the full-body and rich taste that we love from Syrah. The Dobbes Family Estate sources their fruit from some of the best Syrah vineyards in Oregon to produce a powerful yet well-balanced and elegant wine.

This wine drinks like a $30+ wine and normally costs around $25, BUT Georgetown is selling this wine for only $13.99!

Since we love this wine so much, we’re going to open a bottle on Friday, September 4th after 4pm at the Tasting Bar (we’re also going to open the new vintage of the Johnson Family Cabernet, another must try).

We have limited quantities of this wine, so come taste on Friday and load up while you can!

THIS WINE WILL SELL OUT and YOU WILL REGRET NOT PICKING SOME UP! We mean this in this in the nicest way possible.
