On Friday and Saturday this week, I'll be hosting a tasting at Liquor Direct.
On Friday, you'll find me at the Covington store and on Saturday, I'll
be at Fort Thomas. My theme, of sorts, is Spring Wines (or perhaps,
Wines That Remind Me of Spring). All week I"ll be posting the tasting
notes for some of the wines I'll have on my table. Come out to the
tasting this weekend – I'd love to see you and the tasting is free!
So, because some of my choices weren't available, we're only going to have one red wine on the table this weekend (but a lot of great whites). If you scorn reds, that's okay. Mike will have a whole slew of them on his table at the opposite store.
Our lone red for this tasting is the Hahn Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir. I think a Pinot is perfect year round, but because it's not as heavy of a red as say a Cabernet Sauvignon or a Zinfandel, Pinot Noir is a pretty good choice for Spring as well.
Back in January, I got to meet Adam Lazarre, former winemaker for Hahn, at The Party Source. I was instantly smitten with the man and his wines, so it was a no-brainer to put one of his amazing Pinot Noirs on my table.
Here are my notes for this particular Pinot from that Party Source event:
So it's a sexy Pinot, and I bet you'll enjoy it. I hope to see you this weekend!
