Conrad Reimer from B & W Wines Importers of Fine Wines and Spirits will be joining us on Friday March 4th between 6pm to 9pm. We will be featuring the Carmel Road Monterey Pinot Noir and the Noble Tree Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma County. Enjoy a sampling of the wines prior to being seated for dinner.
e are excited to have Conrad on site giving you more knowledge about these wines and the regions within California.
The Carmel Road Pinot Noir is located in the heart of Monterey County where the air is crisp and the temperature is relaxed. Most mornings the vineyards are shrouded in fog; and in the afternoons a brisk Pacific Ocean wind blows southward along the ridge tops and benchlands of Salinas Valley delivering fresh, cool maritime air. For years the regions were considered too cold and windy to grow world-class grapes.
Today, the region has received much acknowledgement for producing highly acclaimed AVA’s in all of California.
Carmel Winery has been producing stunning Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs since 1999. These wines are from some of Monterey’s finest benchland vineyards using a mix of propriety and traditional Burgundy winemaking techniques.
The 2012 Carmel Road Pinot Noir is aged in French oak briefly, which adds earthy, dark toast undertones to this brightly fragrant, berry spice wine. The balance of the final wine is fantastic as it comes together in a velvety finish.
The Noble Tree is a classic cool climate, mountain grown 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes are soured from the Wickersham Ranch Estate, which is located at 2,200 feet elevation in Sonoma County. The Noble Tree is the second label of an obscure high end Sonoma Estate. This family winery does most of their sales via wine club subscriptions.
The 2012 Noble Tree Cabernet Sauvignon evokes flavours of dark berry and plum. Super soft, but structured tannins balance this bold yet refreshing wine. It is a great example of juicy, ready to drink Cabernet Sauvignon with the backbone to handle bold flavoured foods.
Join us on Friday March 4th between 6pm to 9pm to learn more about these wines and their regions from Conrad.
