On Saturday, October 27, Vine 2 Wine will be hosting a complimentary wine tasting and cheese pairing event from 3-6pm. This tasting will feature Jean PLA Passion Grenache 2010 as well as Schloss Reinhartshausen Riesling 2008. The grenache is from the Cotes Catalanes area of the Languedoc/Roussillon region that will give your favorite Cotes-du-Rhone a run for its money. Rich dark berry fruit covers the covers the palate while providing a clean, brightly flavored finish. Enjoy this charming red with barbeque or roasted meats. The riesling shows a nose of lemon zest-laced river rock with notes of peaches, plums, limestone, dry cement, grapefruit and kiwi, which gives way to a palate of of oyster shell, fresh-squeezed lemons, white pepper, river-rock, blue stone, pear core and peaches. The very good complexity of fruit, mid palate and finish that make this a truly enjoyable German riesling. Finishes clean, bright and with lingering minerality. Don't miss out on this quirky pairing!
