Legend: (G)= 'Grande Format' Event of 17-20 Wines, (M)='Mezzo' Event of 12-16 Wines, (S)='Small' Event of 1-12 Wines

OVER ‘90’/UNDER $30 (G) 12:00-5:00

Saturday, November 29
What to do after Thanksgiving?  Well how about a lineup that got 90 or better from Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator (maybe even a few Top 100 wines), James Suckling, Burghound, Tanzer, or Decanter, all that sell for less than $30.  There are no guarantees in life, yada yada, but if you can’t find something exciting in this varied and approved lineup, you’re not trying. $19.

NE PLUS ULTRA: 95 POINTS AND UP (G) 12:00-5:00

Saturday, December 06
We’re borrowing from last week’s theme but with considerably more ‘umph.’ This is Ne Plus Ultra and to those of you not familiar with the format, it means that wine-wise we bring the Drama! Drawing from the top publications, Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator, James Suckling, Burghound, Stephen Tanzer, and even Decanter, we scour the aisles and shelves for wines that have been scored a minimum of 95 points. If you’re in the market for a ‘special’ gift or you’re just curious about how your palate stacks up to the critics, this a great opportunity to try some top flight wines. Cost is $79.99.

HOMMAGE A LOUIS JADOT (G) 12:00-5:00

Saturday, December 13
It’s a few days before Christmas (the middle of Chanukah) and, since we had an open date to fill, we thought we’d like to do something special. Well, Burgundy is special and we have had a long standing relationship with Louis Jadot, one of Burgundy’s top big houses. To quote Wine Advocate’s Niel Martin, “Louis Jadot’s 2012s continue a fine run of form that disprove the theory that large-scale merchants cannot produce wine equal if not better than bijou growers.” We agree but given the more up front nature of the 2012s, we thought it would be better to just open a few bottles to prove our point. As long as we are at it, we decided to reach back to wines from vintages past as well as a few of their spectacular 2011 Cru Beaujolais efforts from their top flight Chateau des Jacques operation. As for the Jadot, we aren’t talking a vertical of Macon. Nothing of the sort. A partial list would include Clos Vougeot 2012, various Beaunes including their famed Clos des Ursules, Gevrey Cazetiers and Vosne Romanee as well as a 2005 Echezeaux and 2003 Clos St. Denis. Cost is $29.00.

KEN WRIGHT- PINOT KING (M) 12:00-5:00

Saturday, December 20
Ken Wright has been a major force in American Pinot Noir since the mid-1980’s. In 1986, after eight years at Ventana and Talbott in Monterey County, Ken Wright set up shop in the Willamette Valley when he founded Panther Creek. During those early years his relationship with Shea and Freedom Hill vineyards (still strong today) produced some memorable wines and big numbers in 1994 from Wine Spectator propelled Ken Wright to stardom. He sold Panther Creek the same year and started his eponymous winery in Carlton, OR. Since then, Ken Wright Cellars and its close work with some of Oregon’s best vineyards (Shea, Freedom Hill and Carter to name a few) has consistently produced some of the most distinctive and terroir driven Pinot Noirs in the U.S. Wine Exchange has had a long affair with Ken Wright and it will be our privilege to pour a wide selection of his 2012 & 2013 efforts. As an added bonus we’ll be offering special pricing on his wines the weekend of the tasting. Join us for this singular event. $25.00
