Steel yourself for two days of total sensory and cognitive domination as we turn the podium over to Shane Salois of Cream Wine Company, who has curated a group of high PSI (personality per square inch) wines with which to melt your brain this weekend. Think you can handle it?
Friday, April 16th from 5:30 – 7:00 pm
Traza Gra2 A luminous, bio-D, tank-fermented, unfiltered Graciano Rioja from Vinos Sin Ley and David Sampedro.
Scudetto A dark, brooding, meaty, salty, single-parcel, old-vine Barbera from Barolo luminary Mauro Mascarello.
J Christopher Dundee Hills Cuvee Pinot Noir 2007 Jay Sommers’ latest Tolkien-esque (think Shire/Middle Earth ) Dundee “Super” Pinot Noir.
The Boy A straight-to-your-limbic system Washington-state, bio-dynamic farmed, hand-picked, foot-crushed, unfiltered Grenache from Charles Smith’s K Vintners. Btw, did you see the Trib profile yesterday?
