Have with Ham, Have with Lamb

With apologies to Dr. Seuss, we’re thrilled to present you two special limited-availability wines just in time for Easter.  And you can try the Schiefer Blaufrankisch 2007 tonight, Friday April 22 from 6-8 pm at the wine store.

Uwe Schiefer Pala Blaufrankisch 2007 ($23.75)

Mike spotted a great buy on the Schiefer Blaufrankisch weeks ago but we held it off the shelves because it seemed like a great special occasion wine and the perfect pair for ham.  This Austrian red genuinely sings with astounding balance and serious length on the finish.  That’s just the cherry on top of the sundae created by the bright nose of red fruit and leather and a palate chock-full of cranberry, strawberry and earth with fine tannins and enough acidity to keep your palate awake through a long dinner.  We were only able to get 8 cases at this price and the vintage is done so when it’s gone, it’s gone.

Jean Paul Brun Terres Dorees L’Ancien Beaujolais ($18.75)

2009 was a stellar year in Beaujolais and the wines were scarce even before the NY Times article last week singing their praises.  So scarce, in fact, we were originally left off the list of stores who got allotted cases of Jean Paul Brun’s Terres Dorees L’Ancien Beaujolais despite the fact we’ve carried this wine for years.  Though we’re generally amiable folk, sometimes you have to fight the good fight and after a couple of tense phone calls, Mike was able to rectify the situation and get 10 cases of this wine allotted to us.  We’ve gone through half even before this email so only 5 remain.  An amazing partner to lamb, this french red brings pure succulent fruit and a bright palate to the dinner table.

Because of limited supply of both of these wines, they’re first come-first served while supplies last.  To order call us at (718) 797-9463.
