Tasting Tuesday comes to you today from Novelty Hill | Januik! @nhjwinery Quite honestly, this is one of my absolute favorite wineries, and one that we’ve been lucky enough to have a membership with for just over a year. Their tasting room in Woodinville, WA is gorgeous, and feels very industrial modern in its design. Find a spot inside by the tasting bar, a comfy spot near the fireplace, or steal some rays in the sunshine! I always bring my friends here for a great catch-up session accompanied by delicious wines! My favorite wines from Novelty Hill | Januik would be LITERALLY any of their Cab Sauv pours, their Malbec or the red blend options. Maybe just try any of your favorite varietals and see how they pan out – because this is a 5-star winery and tasting room from my perspective!! Get out to Woodinville and make a stop at Novelty Hill | Januik. Cheers! 🍷 #sommdays#tastingtuesday

Q. What got you into wine?
A. Growing up on a vineyard it’s almost unavoidable. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Q. With wine, what’s next?
A. Big picture stuff… The uptake of new technologies in the vineyard is going to provide winemakers with fascinating insights into microbiology, plant physiology, soils, and then their specific impact on wine parameters.

Brutocao Cellars 2012 Primitivo, Contento Vineyard - I've never had a Primitivo from CA before and was not disappointed. It was a beautiful lean ruby red to the eye. And I'm all over the place with the nose, I smelled black fruits - blackberry, boysenberry, but also cranberry, hint of pepper, and limestone. It was playful and well structured. The tannin was interesting, it was almost dusty or chalky which speaks to the terroir. All over great get.

This 2016 Alvarinho Reserva is energetic, inviting and easy to like. We picked this up at a tasting of Portuguese wine at @portugalia_marketplace and paired beautifully with the food we bought there. Full tasting notes are on my reviews page.
Bianchello and Lacrima are two typical grape varieties of the Marche, an eastern italian region.
Bianchello is grown in Emilia-Romagna and Marche, and it is also known by different names: Biancame or Biancuccio.
Lacrima means tear in Italian: it may be called like this because of its teardrop shape, or because drops are dripped from its thin skin.
DOC Bianchello del Metauro 2016, Umani Ronchi.
DOC Lacrima di Morro d'Alba, Terre de Conti.

Champagne Sadi Malot, Zéro Liqueur, @champagnesadimalot - Discovered at the restaurant @auculdepoulereims in Reims, this 100% Chardonnay Premier Cru from the Village of Villers-Marmery and with no dosage is an elegant and fine Champagne. On the nose, white fruits and white flowers flavours. On the palate, the bubbles are fine and delicate. The 0 dosage expresses character, minerality and liveliness. Nice balance. I enjoyed it at the aperitif but it will paired very well with sea food! 👌🍾
