This week featuring: António Maçanita Isabella a Proibida, Azores 2015

Azores is a group of islands 1,000 miles off the coast of Portugal that resemble the volcanic islands of Hawaii or Santorini more so than a winemaking region. On the specific island of Pico, António Maçanita has harvested the lone red grape of Isabella. it’s nose is a bouquet of passionfruit, potpourri, concord grape juice and cherry jolly ranchers that sets quite the precedent before tasting. On the palate there is a vibrant lift which one would expect, but a gritty tannic bite afterwards that would latch nicely onto some fatty piece of meat. My meat of choice would be duck.

This week featuring: Adega de Colares MJC Colares Branco, Colares 2009

Colares is a seaside wine region just outside of Lisbon, Portugal that has dwindled down to only 18 hectares of vines and a production of only 4000 bottles annually. This often raises the question, why do they still make wine?? These sandy soils host vines that date back over 100 years and produce both black and white fruit that have a character unlike any wine we’ve ever come across. The Colares Branco we feature is 100% Malvasia and has spent the last ten years resting in the bottle. The fruit on the nose and palate is dominated by overripe apple and dried apricot. Some fun notes that one might not find in an everyday wine were cottage cheese, sourdough and the funky salt air that only a fisherman might come across in their day to day. To me this is a wine of the fall and winter as sauces become richer and the deep tones of the earth are found in more dishes. But I would drink it seaside in the summer as well.

This week featuring: Luis Seabra Xisto Ilimitado, Douro 2017

The Douro region has hundreds of years of incredible winemaking under their belt, but all that effort has been spent in the production of the dessert wine Port. Luis Seabra, a former winemaker at the famed Port house Nieeport, has shifted his attention to unique white varietals like Rabigato and Codega that thrive in the prolific schist soils of the Douro. In the glass, the wine may look cloudy, but the aromas of fresh squeezed lemon, bosc pear and white lilies set the tone for what the palate delivers. The creamy yet edgy mouthfeel is a perfect compliment to salty oysters  or a citrus bathed white fish. I can’t wait to see what other surprises the Douro valley has in store for the world of wine.

This week featuring: Casal Figueira Vinho Branco António, Lisboa 2016

The Vital grape is a rare find in southern Portugal, though to the palate it seems so familiar. The vineyards of Casal Figueira keep the ripening of Vital long and slow with warm days basking in the sun and cool mornings and nights as the Atlantic breeze sweeps across their hillside plots. To the naked eye or palate, this bottling, named António, can easily be mistaken for other famous white wines that are raised on similar limestone soils. A salty charm with notes of lemon curd, lime zest and green apples would place me along the Loire River or in the hills of Chablis. But this powerful yet elegant Portuguese bottling still seems like a secret that I stumbled upon with pure dumb luck.

I am excited to share with you wines that aren’t often available to taste, and to have conversations that lead to... well, opening more bottles! During the month of May we are focusing on the many expressions of Pinot Noir that don’t hail from Burgundy or California. All throughout the winemaking world, producers have been inspired by the great Pinot Noirs of Burgundy and in their own time, have done their best to capture lightning in a bottle. All month you will be surprised at the versatility of Pinot Noir, shocked that you aren’t drinking Burgundy and stunned that this grape can achieve such diversity. We look forward to your feedback on where the “other” great Pinot Noirs express best.”

This week featuring: Chacra Pinot Noir Cincuenta y Cinco, Patagonia 2015

As we close out the month with one last epic bottling of Pinot Noir, it is hard to find a greater surprise from this magical grape then the wines of Chacra in Patagonia, Argentina. Chacra translates to farm in Patagonian dialect and it is great farming that has allowed these bottlings to thrive. Planted in the late 1930s, the Pinot Noir vines of Chacra are still yielding healthy and concentrated fruit. At $20 a glass, ripe red fruit still dominates the palate, but a bright finish reminds you of the greatness of Pinot Noir…. no matter the place.

This week featuring: Ochota Barrels Pinot Noir A Forest, Adelaide Hills 2016

While most like to assume that all the wine from Australia is grown in hot, desert-like conditions, Adelaide Hills is a region that will quickly help you cool your jets. A Forest  is a Pinot Noir from Ochota Barrels grown at very high altitudes at the base of Mount Barker, overlooking the St. Vincent Gulf. These conditions allow Pinot Noir to show off its bright cherry fruit and floral notes. At $18 a glass, not only should you expect to get excited about Australian Pinot Noir, but also whatever Ochota Barrels has in store for us next.

This week featuring: Lucien Crochet Cuvée Prestige, Sancerre 2009

When people speak of Sancerre, Pinot Noir is rarely a part of the conversation. But at just a mere 30 hectares of total land planted to Pinot Noir, Sancerre Rouge makes a bold statement when you can find it. Pinot from Sancerre is grown on the same limestone soils of southern Champagne and Chablis. These soils and a warm vintage like 2009 have created a Burgundy doppelganger. At $25 a glass, you’d swear you were sipping on a velvety rendition from Chambolle-Musigny amidst the slopes of Burgundy.

This week featuring: Movia Pinot Nero Modri, Brda 2011

Movia is winery best known for their practices of natural winemaking in the hills of Collio, right on the border of Slovenia and Italy. Their Pinot Nero stands alone in its intensity, power and purity of fruit. After spending significant time macerating on the skins, the juice from this Pinot Nero develops in the barrel and in the bottle into leather, tobacco, wet earth and dark fruits. At $18 a glass, this Pinot Nero is not only an introduction to a beautiful grape, but also flawless farming and winemaking.

This week featuring: Wasenhaus Pinot Noir Nouveau, Baden 2018

Germany is often forgotten in the discussions of great Pinot Noir. The efforts that have been made in southern Germany have yielded some gems but also some stubborn alcoholic bombs that didn’t honor the nuance of this great grape. Wasenhaus took a completely different angle with their Nouveau and produced an absolute springtime miracle in the glass. At $12 a glass, served slightly chilled, this Pinot Noir is energetic, playful and approachable….even if you don’t think it tastes like Pinot Noir.

“Every Wednesday, I will pull some of my favorite wines from our cellar at Marsh House to pour by the glass. I am excited to share with you wines that aren’t often available to taste, and to have conversations that lead to... well, opening more bottles! During the month of April we are focusing on a grape varietal that I haven’t always had the greatest relationship with. Grenache is a grape that is best known for its leading role in Chateauneuf du Pape, the historic region in the Southern Rhone. My issue with Grenache has always been when winemakers build too much ripeness, which yields too much alcohol and loses the freshness from high acidity. But we are grateful for a handful of wineries, among many others, that honor the bright fruit and velvety structure of Grenache. Let us introduce you to our favorite renditions of Grenache this month, that may or may not be what you expected.”

This week featuring: The Withers Grenache, Sierra Foothills 2016

California is rarely considered a force to be reckoned with when it comes to producing great Grenache. Luckily The Withers and their fearless leader Andrew Tow and winemaker David Low have captured the clarity in fruit that Grenache can produce. Tucked into El Dorado County amidst the Sierra Foothills, this bottling of Grenache is elegant and friendly. At $15 a glass, this closing statement of the month will have you searching for more great Grenache out their in the world of wine.

The rockstar winemakers at Ochota Barrels were blasting some hardcore punk from the band Fugazi when they stumbled upon the vineyard that has yielded this bottling of Grenache. Despite sitting in the hills of Mclaren Vale in sunny southern Australia, this Grenache is delicate, energetic and pure in its display of fruit. Come enjoy a southern hemisphere delight at $18 a glass

How could we possibly talk about Grenache and not mention the epicenter of this grape in Châteauneuf du Pape. Jérôme Mathieu is part of one of the oldest families in this historic region, but his first vintage under the Saje label was in fact this 2015 bottling. While Grenache takes the leading role with just under 85% of the blend, Jérôme also includes the remaining 12 permitted varietals in this expression. At $20 a glass, this is surely a label that will make some noise amongst giant wines.

Sitting in the northeast tip of the Southern rhone, Domaine Gramenon has created a cult following from their powerful expressions of Syrah and Grenache. Poignée de Raisins is the most savory and expressive version of Grenache I have ever experienced and I can’t wait to share it with you. At $15 a glass you will be blown away by what Gramenon is able to accomplish with the Grenache grape.

I am excited to share with you wines that aren’t often available to taste, and to have conversations that lead to... well, opening more bottles! During the month of March we are focusing on my favorite region in the world, chablis. At the northern tip of Burgundy, not far from the slopes of Champagne, Chardonnay is put under constant stress of frost, potential hail and unpredictable weather patterns. But when the stars align and the limestone rich soils of Chablis give Chardonnay the energy it needs, there is no greater white wine for the table. Come enjoy $1 happy hour oysters alongside some of our favorite expressions from Chablis every Wednesday in March!”

This week featuring: Louis Michel & Fils Montée de Tonnerre, Chablis 1er Cru 2017

The south facing slopes of Montée de Tonnerre sit just below the Grand Cru vineyards of Chablis. Chardonnay grown here is bold, concentrated and full of energy. Louis Michel captures that energy by holding his wines in steel tanks, focusing the acidity and brightening the fruit. At $20 a glass, Chablis this good does not come along often.

The single parcel of Vaudecorse is a hidden gem tossed amongst the sun bathed Premier Cru vineyards of Chablis. The children of Gilbert Picq are in control of this incredible estate and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to share this bold juice. At $15 a glass, expect a riper and more concentrated version of Chablis that might call for a richer dish on the table

During the month of February it gets pretty darn cold almost everywhere in the continental US except Florida and California.

Yes these are made from grapes grown on an island and yes we would much rather be there than battling ice storms and sketchy winter weather in Nashville. But the wines we are featuring are faced with their fair share of challenges, being grown on volcanic soils, steep cliffs and blustery winds. The results? Pure magic. Come enjoy a few glasses and attempt to get transported.”

This week featuring: Frontón de Oro, Gran Canaria 2015

The Canary Islands are technically part of Spain, yet sit 100 miles off the coast of Morocco. A string of volcanoes, including the third tallest in the world, assist in creating nutrient rich soils and cozy homes for vineyards where Frontón de Oro makes camp. Their plantings of Listan Negro thrive under the brutal island sun, yet produce a fresh expression in the glass that can dance with the meat of the mountains or swim with the fish of the sea. At $8 a glass, you will see that where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

Domaine Maestracci presents a different perspective on the Vermentinu grape from their windswept vineyards amongst the mountains of Corsica. Winemaker and son-in-law to the Maestracci family, Michel Raoust ensures a salty and edgy wine by keeping the juice in contact with the skin for just one day. The result is energetic, muscular and somehow elegant. At $10 a glass, you will learn that this is more than a great French wine….it is a Corsican wine.

In the early 80s, the Cilia, Occhipinti and Strano families created COS and forever changed the way we look at Sicilian wine. Today, Occhipinti and Cilia still thrive on the southern shores of Sicily within the Cerasuolo di Vittoria appellation. Their most recent bottling of a dry expression of Zibibbo, also known as Muscat de Alexandria, presents a floral aroma and voluptuous texture that only these legends could execute. At $15 a glass, I hope you take your time with every whiff and every taste.
