Wine Notes


A NOTE ABOUT OUR CASE OF THE MONTH:  - Our case of the month is an excellent way to get real value for your wine dollar and drink wines from around the world, carefully selected by J. Emerson staff.  No need to join an Internet wine club with their mystery wines and made up labels – Our case is infinitely more interesting and a better value! The discounted price of the FEBRUARY case-of-the-month is $104.99; the regular price would be $147, a savings of almost 30%! (Are we crazy or what??)
Here is the line-up and as always, there are 2 each of the first four wines (*) and 1 each of the last four wines.
*2015 Sulin Monferrato Bianco “Giabine,” Piedmont, Italy - A blend of Cortese (for body, complexity and acidity) and Chardonnay (for stone and orchard fruit profiles) both grown in the hills just outside of Barolo and Barbaresco. With ripe orchard fruit and green apple aromas, this is a fresh, zesty wine that finishes with lemon-lime overtones.  Perfect with shrimp or white fish.
*2016 DeAngelis Rosso Piceno, Le Marche, Italy-  A delicious blend of 70% Montepulciano and 30% Sangiovese; this is the perfect, straightforward, all-purpose Italian red wine. Cherry and floral notes with a youthful freshness and a velvety texture finishing with mild, rounded tannins. Pair with… anything.
*Quinta do Encontro N/V Sparkling Rosé, Barraida, Portugal - This sparkling Touriga-Nacional, has a definite pink color, with a fine and persistent bubble. The aroma is intense in cherry, strawberry and raspberry. Fruity and elegant, in harmony with the Mediterranean cuisine or Asian or simply as an aperitif.
*2016 Vina Zorzal Garnacha, Navarra, Spain –“The fruit-driven and heady 2016 Garnacha is a blend of grapes from 12 vineyards in the village of Fitero, higher in altitude and fresher than most of what surrounds it where the Mediterranean influence is stronger; Fitero delivers more freshness. Some 20% full clusters were used for the fermentation in 20,000-liter stainless steel vats with indigenous yeasts and bottled without any oak. It’s juicy and supple, with a nice mouthfeel, ideal for food. This is a very good introduction to Garnacha from Navarra. 49,000 bottles produced.” (WA #231)
2016 Chateau Gaillard Sauvignon Blanc, Touraine, France – Aromas of green apples with a richer, mouth feel; this Touraine Sauvignon has Meyer lemon notes on a stony, bitter almond finish.
2016 Pares Balta Blanc de Pacs, Penedes, Spain - A blend of the Classic Penendes white wine grapes: Parellada, Xarel-lo, Macabeo. (The same grapes used for Cava) Yellow lemon color with light green tints. On the nose there are rich aromas of ripe pear and apple. Fresh, yet round and full bodied, the wine finishes with good acidity and balance. Great with chicken and all types of fish. If you are a fan of Chardonnay this will be a delicious alternative.
2015 Heinrich Red, Neusiedlersee, Austria - A blend of Austria’s signature red grape varieties: the soft and fruity Zweigelt; the structured and spicy Blaufränkisch; and the aromatic St. Laurent. It is aged for 12 months in older 500-liter oak casks. Mild floral aromas, juicy cherry and red-berried fruit with notes of tobacco and spice finishing with very mild rounded tannins and refreshing acidity. 
2017 Reunion Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina - “Deep, concentrated red color with purple hints. It is a very expressive wine with ripe, fruity aromas of plum and cherry, as well as notes of chocolate. Reunión Malbec is soft and round on the palate with velvety and mature tannins; it has a well-balanced and full-bodied long finish.” (Winery notes)
