    Wines for the Fall Season »

    Fall is the time of year when many people begin to slow down a bit and enjoy the change in season. Although reds are the most obvious wines for fall, color, texture, weight, and flavor all play a factor. Every fall, as cool weather sweeps in, we start to prep our palates and wine racks with some of our favorite autumn-ready bottles. More reds will find their way onto my table in the fall, but also there is a significant place for more-robust, full-bodied whites. Abel Gonzalez, presenter.

    Zany California Zinfandels »

    Although grown in California, Zinfandel's roots are European. Differences in cultivation, terroir and winemaking combine to give California Zinfandel its own particular flavor profile with a truly American name, history and style. Zinfandel can get a little confusing, since there's a huge range of wine styles that can be produced from the same thin-skinned grape. Popular descriptors for red Zinfandel include blackberry, raspberry, boysenberry, cherry, as well as black pepper, cloves, anise and herbs. Our own Phil Colarusso, will be presenting.

    Italy is the world's No. 1 wine-producing nation whose history is steeped in the growing, cultivating, selling, and consuming of wine. Each region has its flagship wine styles. Some are famous because they are produced in large volumes and can be found all over the world, others because of their consistently high quality. Marco Irato, Presenter.

    Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends (not from California!) »

    Cabernet Sauvignon is probably the most famous red grape variety in the world and is the backbone in many of the world’s most expensive wines. Since Cabernet Sauvignon is grown in a wide range of climates and regions throughout the world it has varied flavors. Thanks to its versatility and its ability to adapt and produce quality wines in many climatic and terroir conditions, Cabernet Sauvignon has spread all over the world. It now plays an important part in the winemaking of all major wine-producing countries, from the Old World to nearly all New World countries. Curtis Eaton, presenter.

    Cool Weather Wines »

    When the weather chills you to the bone, reach for wines that will warm you up. Cold weather makes us move a little slower. Think about wines that have layers, like the way you dress when it's cold. Wines that have texture and layers have a lot of dimension to them, in terms of aroma and taste. Comfort wines are the soft but still hearty reds like merlot, malbec and syrah. To find a white wine suited to winter, look for richer bottles that can stand up to hearty cold weather stews and roasted vegetables. Matt Hollis, presenter.

    French Wines from Domaine Lafage »

    They grow primarily Grenache (Blanc, Gris & Noir), Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan, Marsanne, Roussanne and Chardonnay with a significant proportion of the vines well over 50 years old. They harvest by hand and the winemaking is surprisingly uncomplicated with stainlesss steel for the fresher whites but mostly concrete tanks for the rest with a small amount of French oak demi-muids. Benefiting from a warm, dry climate, the estate is farmed organically. Mark Strassel, presenter.

    Wines from Importer Kermit Lynch »

    You'll often hear this nugget of wine-buying advice: turn the wine bottle around, and shop by the back of the label instead of the front. What's so important that's on the back of the label? The importer's name. If you discover that there's a wine you like, chances are you might like other wines in that importer's collection. Kermit Lynch has had so much success shining the spotlight on small, artisan producers that he has won two James Beard awards and was knighted by the French government with their prestigious “Legion d’Honneur.” Kelsey Lullo, presenter.
