INAUGURATION I wrote about starting up again our Saturday wine classes and I am
game if you all are? You have over the years approached me where you can learn
more about wine? The answer is : " here, with me ". I have done them now for so
many years and to make this first class really a great experience we will
include a dry red, white and rose and an off-dry red and off dry white and one
sparkling wine, too. I want to cover some of the various styles and types with
this first class and so it will be fairly broad to set some boundaries so that
we may better understand the enormity and the excitement of the wine world
available to all of us today, especially those of us fortunate enough to live in
big cities like Washington D.C. where there are more choices available to us.
IT'S ALL VERY ENRICHING, very exciting. Let's create some wine noise together
this Saturday.

that Abe, John and Maggie were headed that way yesterday and I have to catch up
with them now. Karen posted a nice picture of the Washington Monument seen
through a bunch of leafless brown trees that I liked. Kathy posted one of
President Obama and Michelle Obama walking along in the motorcade just before
the Viewing Stands. It was exciting to see so many great performing bands from
around our great country. That was very inspiring. All the colors, the motion,
the sounds, the energy and on a beautiful day, too with a splendid sunset and
all. I watched the parade until the very end myself and saw later that President
Obama was there until the last and largest band from Virginia marched by in all
their splendid uniforms. Quite solemn and impressive.

Valley ( $16.99, 13.5% alcohol by volume, www.tabali.com ) is from an

did show ell this past weekend and sell really well when our local wine rep
Marcie Weinstein tasted it with our customers this past Saturday from 2-6PM.

4) 2011 Gewurztraminer from VALKENBERG, Weinkultur seit 1786 ( $16.99, 10%
alcohol by volume, from Germany's Pfalz region ) also was showing brilliantly
this past Saturday when Marcie poured it for everyone from 2-6PM. It was so
fresh and bright and flavorful and easy-sipping, such a delight to drink with or
without a meal. Medium-bodied, not too strong one way or the other, no bite,
full and rich on the palate and a delight to sip all by itself. It's a perfect
cold-weather wine and it will hold it's own against many a meal in our winter
time. It may be showing better than ever before. I was very pleased tasting it
here this Saturday afternoon!

yourselves! Cheers! Marcie poured it here this past Saturday afternoon from

2) 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon from Arentina's Mendoza region and made by
NAVARRO CORREAS, this " Colleccion Privada " ( On Special for $10.99 a bottle,
regularly $$15.99 a bottle, 13.9% alcohol by volume , www.ncorreas.com ) is the
single wine that back in 1983-85 set the standard for the wines here in the
United Sates from Argentina. If it was as good as the NAVARRO CORREAS Colleccion
Privada then it was a wine to be reckoned with!!! And today at only $10.99 a
bottle it represents a great deal still. We've sold over a hundred cases so far.
The price had to go up a dollar but it's still an amazing deal and so far it is
already doing really well this 2013! TRY SOME, you will be pleased and not

3) Dornfelder off-dry German indigenous grape-variety from VALKENBERG (
$14.99 a bottle, 9% alcohol by volume, Qualitatswein b.A. ) is a fruity
medium-to-light-bodied delight of a red that should be chilled up to 30 minutes
and enjoyed all by itself or with food, too. It's so easy to enjoy all by
itself. It will also be great soon on Valentine's Day when everyone needs some
easy-sipping red to match with some chocolate and strawberries. You should get
some now while you still can. It's perfect and so pleasing. It tasted great this
past Saturday afternoon when Marcie tasted it with our customers from 2-6PM.

4) 60% Carmenere/ 40% Syrah dry red blend from Chile's Elqui Valley , this
2009 Reserva ( $15.99 a 750ml bottle, 14.5% alcohol by volume,www.falernia.com
) is flavorful and really got some body , weight and attitude. It's a
rich-tasting, medium-to-fuller-bodied red to enjoy with a meal or tasty hors
d'ouevres. We really like it and it's perfect for this colder, windy weather.
Enjoy it now, no need to wait. Made by a fine Italian winemaker in Chile with
grapes that originally came from France. Carmenere has become " the red grape "
for Chile. and when blended like this it shows even more potential as it is not
a heavy grape on it's own.
