Where is the one place in the world where the majority of the wines receive 90 points or higher at an average price of less than $30?

Some mystical fantasyland conjured up by Wine Spectator?  Nope.  The place is heaven on earth – Washington State.

But Washington doesn’t stop at great QPR.  Its terroir produces wines of balance, depth, longevity and beauty – across a myriad of styles, including Cabernet, Bordeaux blends, Syrah, Chardonnay and more.

Yet for all of Washington’s delicious wines, to many it remains in the shadows of California.  This tasting aims to change that.  Via selecting a wide range of some of the newest and best producers in Washington, we will highlight something for everyone across this great state.

Wines to be tasted:

2013 Dunham Trutina Red Blend, Columbia Valley $24.99

2015 Gramercy Cellars Lower East Syrah $24.99

2016 Trust Columbia Valley Riesling $18.99

2012 Andre Will Ciel du Cheval Vineyard Red Mountain $64.99

2015 Dusted Valley The BFM Cabernet $69.99

The Loire Valley: Pure Refreshment in Both Red and White Wines – Delafield

From West to East, the Loire River Valley is an embarrassment of riches.  On the far west, it starts with the amazing wines of Muscadet – incredibly refreshing and shockingly long-lived (and crazy cheap for the quality of wines).  On the far east end, it finishes with the incredibly powerful Sauvignon Blancs of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume.  But that is to say nothing of hundreds of great wines in between – including some utterly refreshing red wines made from Cabernet Franc, Gamay and Pinot d’Anuis.

But the Loire gets even better – almost all of its wines remain relatively unknown.  For those of us game for a little exploratory drinking, top wines can be had on the cheap!  Come join us at this tasting to explore the wonderful wine world of the Loire Valley.

Wines to be tasted:

2016 Pepier Muscadet $14.99

2016 Raimbault Sancerre $26.99

2015 Montcy Cour Cheverny $23.99

Burgundy: The Ultimate in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay – Delafield

Burgundy.

Maybe you’ve tasted its wines and know their intense power that is sensually coupled with grace and ageability. Or maybe you’ve heard wine geek friends describe experiences with Burgundy that seem to be heaven-sent rather than poured from a bottle. Whatever your experience – for Master Sommeliers and beginning connoisseurs alike – we want to pour enough amazing Burgundy into your glass that it makes you, too, a Burgundy believer.

Yet for as much as we love Burgundy, the Burgundians don’t always make life easy. The labels are a study in confusion. The vineyard designations are complex – there are something like 22,000 of them! The wines can be unexplainably hard in their youth, to the point of consternation. And being all of that – they can be prohibitively expensive, too.

Resolution of these problems is a tall order for any tasting. But I’m sure that together, we can succeed. We’ll proceed in flights of wine. Our opening flight is a discussion of the human factor in Burgundy – how it relates to the labels and purchasing, and how the winemaker can influence the final taste of the wine. In the second flight, we explore the pyramid of label designations through an escalating sequence of wines. And in the final flight, we examine the fine distinctions among minute parcels of vineyards across some of the best communes in the region.

For committed Burgundy lovers and new Burgundy friends alike, this is a tasting not to miss.

Wines to be tasted:

2015 Louis Jadot Bourgogne Rouge $19.99
2016 Domaine Parent Selection Pomone $34.99
2017 Domaine Guillemard-Clerc Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay “Les Parties” $24.99
