“The Cellar” at Harbor View
Thursday Tasting November 16, 2017—5 to 8 p.m.
The Cellarmaster’s Ultimate Thanksgiving Wine Tasting!
With just one week to go before the big feast, Cellarmaster Dale has pulled out all the stops with his ‘Ultimate’ Wines for Thanksgiving Tasting! While we have a HUGE selection of wines and spirits at Harbor View, these are his personal favorites for the big day! The Cellarmaster loves nothing better than cooking and celebrating with family and friends on this special day. Here’s what he’s pouring at his house, as well as Thursday from 5-8 p.m.
Carpene Malvotti DOCG Prosecco Extra Dry NV Italy (Veneto) “Complex and elegant with aromas of citrus and stone fruit. Concentrated and harmonious flavours of pears and citrus. Impressive.” 90 points Decanter
Cambria Rosé of Pinot Noir 2016 United States (Santa Maria Valley, Santa Barbara, California) “Ripe red fruit characters dominate the aroma and flavor profiles. In the mouth, fresh strawberry, watermelon, and raspberry flavors are accented with a nice silky mouth-feel and a crisp and lively finish.” Denise Shurtleff, Winemaker
Ponzi Vineyards Classico Pinot Noir 2014 United States (Willamette Valley, Oregon) “The first vintage for this re-branded, mid-level Ponzi Pinot is a doozy. Lovely aromatics offer a plush potpourri of plum, blueberry and cherry fruit, along with hints of curry, chocolate and hickory chips. Flavors are nicely entwined, round and full bodied, with a streak of root beer. This is ready to enjoy now and over the next couple of years.” 92 points Wine Enthusiast
Ridge Vineyards East Bench Zinfandel 2015 United States (Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma, California) “The 2015 Zinfandel East Bench, 100% Zinfandel from Ridge’s Dry Creek estate, is deep, pliant and generous, all qualities that make it easy to drink and enjoy, even today. Succulent dark cherry and plum fruit flavors add to the wine’s up-front personality. Bright acids perk up the finish, but this is a decidedly fruity style.” 92 points Vinous
