Does it seem like winter will never end? Last week there was a hail storm while the sun was shining! Yesterday surprise snow! Need some wines to get you through the winter? Some wines for winter meals?
Jade went on KGW for just this topic. Wines for Winter Meals. Or let’s face it Wines for long winter nights. Case in point the walk from the car to the studio was blustery and freezing and it snowed overnight!
Watch the clip and keep reading for more details.
Wines for Winter Meals
2015 Big John Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon from H/H Estates Coyote Canyon Vineyard in Horse Heaven Hills (Prosser WA) $42 – Actually named for a great big prize winning bull, from back when the family raised cattle instead of grapes. This is big Cab Sauv you want with your steak or pot roast. Tart red fruit, evergreen notes, big structure Note 2015 was tasted, 2013 pictured below. See our review of the 2010 H/H Estates Big John
2015 Idiot’s Grace Cabernet Franc from Columbia Gorge $32 – Ahh the other Cab… Cabernet Franc is Cabernet Sauvignon’s daddy so to speak and is one of my favorite grapes from one of my favorite wineries in the Columbia Gorge. I want this with a lamb and veggie stew because it has so many complex layers. Savory with the vegetal notes expected from Cab Franc, a burst of Marionberry, and a finish of black pepper and orange oil.
And finally from one of my all time favorite Horse Heaven Hills wineries … I like every bottle I’ve tried from Alexandria Nicole.
