Wine Wednesdays - Winter Walk-around at NYV

I recently attended a great event at one of my favorite wine shops in the city.  New York Vintners hosts a quarterly walk-around event where they open 15 bottles of what they're loving at that moment.  This time around it was 4 sparkling wines, 4 whites, and 7 reds with a bonus rose tasting.  It was the perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon.  It was an intense amount of wine to taste in a 2 hour setting, but after a delicious brunch at Nelson Blue, we were up for the challenge!

My only complaint is that it wasn't more interactive.  But NYV has lots of wine classes that I've heard great things about, so there's options for every educational/tasting experience.  




My favorite wine of the evening was, surprise surprise, a Napa Valley Cab.  Capture Wines Fleuron 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon  was everything I love in a NV Cab, black fruit, balanced with slight spice and light tannins, a very drinkable wine.

I highly suggest getting on the mailing list for NYV as they send out fun tasting notes, winemaker dinners, and upcoming class schedules.
