Episode 289: An Unusual Trio

December 7, 2015

While trying to put this week’s show together, we found some bottles that weren’t easy to fit into a flight of similar wines. So, we stuck three odds and ends together, and bring you a trio of interesting grapes that are far from Northwestern clichés. We taste the 2013 Golden Cluster Coury Semillon, The 2013 Analemma Atavus Gewürztraminer, and the 2014 Jackalope Quady North Cabernet Franc. What were some favorites from your Thanksgiving wine tasting adventures?

Here’s the interview with Jeff, part 1 and part 2.

    Spot on, Dan! Out of the 8 barrels of Cab Franc, one was a new (American oak) barrel! You dudes are good! Thanks for reviewing the CF, glad you enjoyed it!

    Really like your site, especially when you review little known wineries.
    Thanksgiving wines of note were 1990 Feyles Nebbiolo d’ Alba – absolutely a winner everything you want from an old wine from Piedmont. 1993 Tom Eddy Cabernet – while good not great lacked some complexity, 1989 Prince Poniatowski Vouvray Aigle Blanc – again very good, not great fairly one dimensional.

      Thank you Geoff! We love getting information out on the little producers, and are glad to hear that it’s enjoyed. That Nebbiolo sounds fantastic.
