Welcome to the first installment of The RE/MAX Metro LUXELIST Wine of the Month! A place to share wines from some of our favorite Local Restaurant's Wine Lists along with some tasty dishes!!
And for our first selection....
Wine- 2012 Lodi Estates
Varietal- Cabernet Sauvignon
This Wine is produced in the Lodi Region. Lodi
is a city located in San Joaqin County, California, in the northern portion of California's Central Valley. Wines from this Region like many others have very distinctive characteristics.
Lodi Estates is a very approachable yet full bodied Cabernetsure to please a wide range of palates.
Here is what we experienced during our tasting....
Nose (What did I smell)- very open with tons of dark fruits, hints of vanilla and woodsmoke (After all it is from Lodi!)
Flavors (What did I taste)- dark jammy fruits, vanilla, cinnamon and hints of clove
Tannin Level-low (A Tactile sensation
We paired with this wine with an order of Chef Zack Gross'
Signature Dr. Pepper Fried Ribz! (AKA Meat Candy). The Menu, atmosphere and service are some of the best in the Bay area. Do yourself a "Flavor" and check this place out!
Zgrille has 1/2 Off All Bottles on their wine list for Happy Hour Mon.-Sat. 3:00-6:30 and all night on Monday!
