"If all be true that I do think, There are five reasons we should drink: Good wine a friend or being dry Or lest we should be by and by Or any other reason why."
- Henry Aldrich

 

We have a lot of good reasons to drink at the Wine Watch: like days that end in “Y” Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights!  We don’t take Sunday off that is Margherita night at the Lampasone house!!!

Every year we study wines that are 10 and 20 years of age.  This is the first of many tastings in 2022 that will feature wines that have reached their first level of maturity.  Just like people wines mature with age, they gain nuance and complexity sheading their baby fat becoming less awkward and more balanced.  In great vintages this can take decades but the only way to know for sure is to keep checking on a regular basis.  Many collectors want to know what the right time is to drink their collectible wines and that is why we host so many vintage wine tastings, so you get a chance to experience first-hand how these wines are drinking right now.

This is one of the longest e-mails we have every sent out because I have included every Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that we have in store, there are over 375 different wines available in this category…probably the biggest in the store right now.

Join us as we experience wines that are 10-20 years old wines from Napa Valley along with a special menu to accompany the tasting wines.  This tasting is limited to 14 tasters and the fee for this tasting which includes dinner is $295 + tax, for reservations call 954-523-9463 or e-mail andy@winewatch.com.
