UPCOMING EVENT

Taste Wine with Robert Sinskey

On Thursday, April 18th North Loop Wine and Spirits is thrilled to introduce Robert Sinskey, the man behind some of the most prized wines (particularly Pinot Noir) in California wine country. The  Robert Sinskey  winegrowing operation is certified 100% organic and biodynamic. The fruit coming from some of the most premium vineyard sites in the Carneros and Stags Leap districts of Napa and Sonoma. "Rob and winemaker, Jeff Virnig have adopted methods that not only produce wines of individuality, but leave a minimal footprint on the land. Rob believes that wine should not be a “quick study,” but rather seduce you as the wine opens in the glass and bottle." Join us for a seated educational wine tasting in our cellar. Tickets are limited. We hope to see you there!
Note: The $25 purchase price of your ticket will be refunded with any wine purchased from the event.

STAFF PICKS - WOMEN IN WINE:
Doug's Wine Review :
Day Wines 'Vin de Days' Blanc, Willamette Valley, 2017 - $21.99
This is one of the very few wines in the world that if someone said they didn't like it, I would question whether or not they have a pulse. This white blend from Brianne Day is composed of Pinot Blanc, Riesling, muscat and other grapes to create a vibrant, aromatic, and deliciously quaffable wine. 
Patti's Wine Review :
Long Meadow Ranch (LMR) Rosé, 2018 - $27.99
Ashley Heisey has a Masters in Enology from UC Davis and decades of winemaking experience both in the U.S. (Far Niente, Opus One, Robert Mondavi, Schramsberg) and abroad. She believes minimal intervention makes better wine and is also passionate about sustainable and organic farming. The 2018 LMR rose is a brilliant pale salmon color with aromas of strawberry, stone fruit, and white flowers. It has elegance on the palate with a freshness that brings sunshine and spring to the forefront of your mind.
David's Wine Review :
Leah Jorgensen Oregon 'Tour Rain' Vin Rouge, 2016 - $29.99
This week we are celebrating women winemakers. Leah Jorgensen is making exciting Loire Valley styled red and white wines in Oregon. The 'Tour Rain' is a unique blend of Gamay and Cabernet Franc. The name is a play on the cool climate French wine region Touraine and the climate of Oregon. The wine is fresh and lively with berry fruit, cedar and spice notes. It's graceful and refreshing and pairs with a wide range of foods. All of the wines are solid staff favorites and have been popping up on local restaurant wine lists. This is a must try.
Madison's Wine Review :
Elodie Balme "Champs Libre" Roaix - $23.99
Ms. Balme made her first vintage of wine in 2006 at the age of 23, under the mentorship of Marcel Richaud, a pioneer of biodynamics in the Southern Rhone. She claims to aim for elegance, finesse, and vibrancy in her wines.. and it shows. Her blend from Roaix is grenache dominant, with a good chunk of syrah and a touch of mourvedre. This is a rich, dark fruited wine with those classic herbal spice Rhone notes.. perfect for grilled or roasted meats.
Patrick's Wine Review :
2015 Catena, Malbec, High Mountain Vines - $23.99
This is a beautiful floral, dark fruit driven Malbec from Laura Catena. She represents the 4th generation of the influential Argentine wine makers, the Catena family. As well as being their Managing Director, she is a Harvard and Stanford educated medical doctor.
In wine making, she is a champion of their family owned High Mountain Vineyards, blending distinctive characteristics from 4 separate vineyards to create a balance of powerful black fruit, soft tannins, and solid acid structure in this 2015 vintage of Malbec. It is a perfect match with the best grilled meats that Argentina has to offer.
