Platinum Wine Club November 2019

November 1, 2019 @ 10:00 am - November 30, 2019 @ 7:00 pm

Platinum Wine Club November 2019, 2 reds!

 

The Unknown: Villa Matilde Aglianico (ah-glee-AN-ah-co) Campania Italy Regularly $20.59, Wine Club Price for Nov 2019 $17.59

Lovely red, with purple highlights, Aglianico is intense & lingers with spice, blackberries & ripe red fruit. I characterize this wine as a “warm” wine, though old world, it’s a modern style but you can taste where it comes from by the terroir. Its aged in large Slovenia oak casks, plus 3 month in steel and 3 in the bottle. In 2009 Villa Matilde launched “Zero Emissions” with a strategy to get to zero emissions, including greenhouse gases, from energy to transport & fertilizers and fuels.

 

Food Pairings: Intense foods, BBQ sauces, game, buffalo burgers, brisket, pecorino & asiago cheese

 

The Known Lapis Luna (Latin for stone & moon) Zinfandel 2018, 90 points & a Best Buy from the Wine Enthusiast. Regularly $14.99, Wine Club Price for November $12.99

The Labels! Wow! I hear it all the time, “I’m a sucker for the labels.” My general response is, “We all are. That’s why they are so awesome!” This label comes from 400-year-old copper plate engravings. I would suggest going to their website for the whole story. The Lapis Luna Zinfandel North Coast, California is rich, dark and enticing. The aromatics deliver savory black pepper blended with dark floral aroma. Dark and decadent blueberry and blackberry cobbler. It does have 23% Sangiovese blended in.

 

Food pairings: Ginger, Garlic, Rosemary, Nutmeg. Lighter meats, roasted tomatoes & red peppers
