Wine Wednesdays - 2015 Wind Gap "Soif"

I'm late to the game but I just discovered the Tavern at Gramercy Tavern.  It's the perfect spot for a casual lunch at the bar or after-work drinks.  I first visited the restaurant when I was visiting NY with my family my freshman year of high school.  I really wish I appreciated food and dining back then as much as I do now!  

My dad and I have added the Tavern to our rotation of lunch spots when he's in town.  The trick is to get there by 11:50am as the bar typically fills up with those in the know as soon as they open.  Now you're in the know ;-)

On our last visit, we tasted this interesting red wine by Wind Gap that was on the by-the-glass menu.  "Soif" is the French word for "thirst".  The wine is a blend of 7 different grapes from vineyards planted between 1881 and 1975; it was served slightly chilled and would make for a great summer sipper for those red wine only drinkers out there.  It was very light in color and a bright, cherry red tint.  The nose was full of cherry and strawberry with a hint of spice.  The palate had a great acidity that was enhanced by the slight chill of the wine.  It was a great pairing with the Tavern burger.
