It’s all about the 2020 Nouveau Beaujolais that’s coming in next week! This may just be the best thing that’s happened in 2020… We’re bringing in a variety of producers for this year’s release and as always we’re excited to share them with you. Starting at 10am next Thursday Nov. 19th we’ll have them out and ready for you, plus a pre-packaged French inspired meal to accompany your own celebration.

Dan’s Wine Feature

This week’s feature is from Dunham Cellars Trutina Red Blend from Columbia Valley. “The 2017 Trutina opens with aromas of black currant, cherry and cola with touches of vanilla, pepper spice and cedar. On the palate, bright red fruit flavors and savory dried herbs interplay with silky tannins across the smooth and lengthy finish”. Comprised of 54% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot makes this a classic Columbia Valley rendition of Bordeaux. Others who have weighed in on this terrific $29.99 value had this to say, “Had this at a local restaurant and was blown away. Far more depth and development than other wines at this price point. Loved the blend, complexity in every sip”, and, “This tasted like an $80 bottle. Blown away by the flavor and depth. I want a case of this”! This is what I expect from Dunham, having carried their Cabernet in the past, we’re excited to have another fantastic wine from such a solid Columbia Valley producer.

Dan’s Pick

Roger Goulart 2011 Gran Reserva Brut Cava is my pick for this week. I do have a bit of a problem with sparkling wine and when this came upon us at $19.99, I couldn’t help myself. This Method Champenoise Cava is a true delight, not one I would make Mimosas with… it’s one to enjoy as one would a fine sparkling wine. If you’ve got something to celebrate (and it’s really not hard, I find something daily) or just want to quench your thirst this is just the bottle.

Food News

11/19/20 take home dinner for 2!!! That’s the real news, next week at this time we will have your take home dinner all prepared for you, a simple reheat in the oven and you’ll be ready to go. Beef Bourguignon, a loaf of Tribeca Bakery Rosemary bread, a slice of Brie and a couple ounces of French Jam will be this year’s Nouveau Beaujolais take home dinner! Plus, a few of 2020 Nouveaus I hope!

Please, please continue safe practices and please bring a mask when you come visit us at the store.

Cheers from all of us here at The Wine Merchant
