FEWC Meeting last Friday (1/5/18)

Happy New Year!   Friday Evening Wine Club braved the freezing Chicago-area temperatures and gathered together for some pizza, salad and some very tasty reds.

First on the list was Torbreck Cuvée Juveniles 2013, a red blend from Australia’s Barossa Valley, which was described by some as fruit-forward and reminded other members of Pinot Noir, especially on the nose.  It provided a slightly sweet beginning, and then filled the mouth with a smooth, satisfying flavor, just dry enough, but not too pucker-provoking.

As we dug into pizza, we opened the second bottle,  San Felice Chianti Classico Reserva il Grigio 2012.  It provided everything you would expect from a good bottle of Chianti, with some cherry tones and a bit of earthiness.       It certainly paired well with the pizza!

Several months ago, we had an opportunity to try some Aglianico, a red blend from Italy, as the  featured wine in a New York Times Wine School dinner.  We liked it a lot.  Fortunately, Scott remembered how much we liked it and voila… our third tasting was a 2014 Terradora Aglianico. This one is a keeper!  Great call, Scott.

All in all, it was a nice way to stay warm on a cold Chicago Friday.
