We're very thankful to have great relationships with some of the industry's best artisanal wine importers here at Chain Bridge Cellars, and Jonas Gustafsson is one of the best of the best. So join us as we pour a great set of Thanksgiving-friendly Spanish wines from Valencia, Terra Alta and Priorat. On Friday we'll handle the tasting duties and on Saturday, Jonas will take charge of the table once again. Both days we'll share:
Pago Casa Gran Falcata Blanco 2016 - You'll be thankful to have this on your table and in your glass this Thanksgiving! A wildly aromatic blend of Moscatel (aka the ancient varietal Muscat Blanc) and Gewürztraminer that saturates your palate with flavor and finishes dry and fresh.
Pago Casa Gran Casa Benasal Elegant Tinto 2014 - A wonderfuly light and fruit-filled expression of Monestrell, Garnacha Tintorera and Syrah that will complement any heavy Thanksgiving feast.
Pago Casa Gran Falcata Casa Gran Tinto 2014 - Want to go "big and bold" with the turkey and trimmins this year? This organic Spanish gem is loaded with dark fruit, chocolate and spice.
Clua Mil.lennium Tinto 2013 - It's been a long time since this old friend was on the floor - one taste, and you'll see what we've been missing. Rich, powerful, Garnacha, Cabernet and Syrah fruit with plenty of smoky complexity.
En Numeros Vermells Priorat AiAiAi 2015 - Staying with the Spanish theme, this is bold, intense, Priorat with deep red and blue fruit and a slate and cracked pepper finish. What a treat!
This is an exciting set of wines for Thanksgiving and far, far, beyond and a great chance (on Saturday) to catch up with Jonas, too. We'll have a Spanish treat or two from the cheese case out to sample as well. Join us!
