Pick up your May wine club bottles, and enjoy a late lunch with live music by Frankie Hernandez!
Our May wine club is a double feature of excellence! Our 2017 Chardonnay took a prestigious Double Platinum award in the 2018 Wine Press Northwest Wine Competition. The 2015 Barbera took GOLD at the 2018 San Francisco Chronicle International Wine Competition! Enjoy our notes:
2017 Brook Horse Chardonnay
Nose: Almonds, honey, light melon, toffee, fresh cut grass, fava bean husk, and leche (carmelized milk)
Palate: Bright start, nice acidity to open, which leads to the creamy body that malolactic fermentaion provides. Notes of graham retro nasally, as well as Asian pear and some poached apple.
Color: Golden Straw
The 2017 Brook Horse Chardonnay is a unique blend of old and new world aromas, ranging from fresh cut grass and flint to Spanish melon and toffee. This succulent white starts brightly with hints of Asian pear, yields to a balanced creamy mid-palate and finishes with hints of dried thyme and lemon.
2015 Brook Horse Barbera
Nose: Bordeaux cherry, anise, wild strawberry, oregano, tarragon, sweet basil, rubbed sage, light pipe tobacco, split cedar
Palate: Fruit forward on the palate, with the cherry and strawberry at the fore. The acidity is there, but not overwhelming to the overall light structure of this wine. The finish is full with Italian herbs, basil tarragon, and dusty herb roasted lamb bark (the crust on the outside of the rack of lamb that has all the toasted herbs that makes amazing flavor compounds) and the tannin is just enough to let you know you should have this with meat, or meat-based sauce.
The 2015 Brook Horse Barbera is our expression of a classic Italian varietal. The bouquet displays notes of fresh wild strawberries and Bordeaux cherries that mingle with tarragon, sweet basil, and split cedar. Fruit leads on the palate and finishes with a dusty tannin that begs for roasted lamb. Drink from now to 5 years.
