Thanksgiving 2012!?

As we prepare for Thanksgiving 2012, we offer our sympathies to those whose homes or businesses were lost or damaged in the recent storm. A natural disaster such as this makes us appreciate the simple things in life that we have to be thankful for. So as we gather our friends and families together let's think about helping those folks affected by the storm, or those in need of basic nutrition and health care. (The American Red Cross and Partners-in-Health would be good places to start)

Sermonizing aside, our talented and enthusiastic staff is here to help with their suggestions for your holiday table. Please call or email with any questions you may have - we hope you have a deliciouly happy and memorable Thanksgiving!

Preto 2009 Tierra de Leon Prieto Picudo Tinto

Prieto Picudo is a rustic and characterful native grape that grows around the town of Leon.  Gregory Perez uses a fresh and elegant approach in his elaboration - with minimal extraction, natural yeast vinification and reductive wine-making in tank. The 2009 Preto shows lovely dark bramble fruits, great freshness, savory black pepper and cumin notes, with a supple well fruited palate of tart black raspberry and concord grape.   Also, I think there's a mineral dimension that makes this wine really interesting and lovely.  A great introduction to the new Spain.  Pair with roasted birds and grilled meats. - cb/AR
