The Wine Cabinet


Dear {FirstName}


It"s Friday, March 22, at The Wine Cabinet!

It"s National Goof Off Day!!

National Goof Off Day is observed annually on March 22. 
Our research (half-hearted and slipshod as it was) indicates that this day is also known as International Goof Off Day.  
It is a day to relax, enjoy and goof off.  Do something fun and leave the work until tomorrow.  Everybody needs to take a break from time to time.  It is often so easy to get so involved in the work and pressures in our lives.
So stop, take a break, find something different! 
Let any goofy idea pop into your head.  Make paper airplanes from seed packets.  
Doodle pictures of poodles in puddles in Peru.  Play a game of Jenga with randomly stacked spice jars.  
Or do the obvious and spend the day in your pajamas doing nothing.

We at The Wine Cabinet would like to be certain though that whatever you do, you have a glass of wine or mug of beer in your hand while you do it!!

Speaking of glasses - if you haven"t perused the wonderful variety of hand painted glassware from Karen Marie Snyder, make it a priority to do so SOON!!

And, by the way, if you haven"t got it on your calendar yet -
Opening Day for the Washington Nationals is March 28 against the rival NL East NY Mets.
You"ll be hearing more from me next week on baseball (been very good to me).

We"re looking forward to seeing you this weekend!!!

See you this evening!

The Wines!!
Steininger Rose" of Cabernet Sauvignon $15.99
ABV 12.5%, RS 5.4 g/l, AC 5.4 g/l 
Pale Rose in color. On the nose, it"s an elegant mix of flowers, fruit and tender greens. The taste of ripe raspberry, black currant and violets fills the palate. Finishes with crisp acidity and great balance. Refreshing and mouthwatering.
This was the unanimous favorite of our Rose" Class in 2017 and it has continued as one of the most popular offerings that we have had on the shelf.  At the Taste of Reston this year, the crowds could hardly get enough.
You can chill this wine to your hearts content and know that it will still offer a ripe, luscious flavor and a refreshing crispness that will both slake your thirst and make you impatient for the next sip.

Bauer Gruner Veltliner, Reid Rosenberg $17.99

Alc. 12.5%, RS 3.5g/l, AC 4.9g/l 
Rosenberg is one of the best-known Grüner Veltliner vineyards in Austria. Very aromatic, full of round fruit and balanced with crisp acidity. The distinct soil lends a pleasant mineral and white pepper note typical of this varietal. Pairs well with a wide range of foods, including Asian cuisine and fish with fresh herbs. Excellent value and quality.

Steininger Kamptal Reisling $19.99

ABV 13.1% Acidity 6.5% g/l Residual Sugar 4.0 g/l

92 points, The Wine Enthusiast 
This excellent Gruner Veltliner has been a favorite of ours for years, this wine flat-out over-delivers!
“Lifted, pear-scented freshness dominates the nose while the palate is soft but has a pleasing and linear citrus focus. This is poised and offers sophisticated refreshment.”  Anne Krebiehl, MW
Our thoughts……This is an excellent example of a typical Austrian Grüner Veltliner. A dry (yes dry…don’t let the bottle fool you!)  and fresh white wine with influences of green apples, grapefruit and lemon showing off trademarks of flinty mineral, citrus and tropical fruit. The spice of white pepper and ripe acidity underlines all this.  A perfect every day white wine.

Hartl Pinot Noir Classic $19.99

ABV: 13.5% vol. Residual Sugar: 3.2 g/l Acidity: 4.7 g/l
92 Points 
The Wine Enthusiast
A promising touch of reduction still plays on the nose, riding above ripe notions of redcurrant and red cherry. The palate is ripe, mellow and smooth, showing rounded berry notes and a gentle structure supported by spicy freshness. Oak is beautifully integrated and nothing is overdone. The ripeness of the vintage is evident, but it is on the finish that this shows its true colors: a good structure and lasting freshness. —A.K 

Steindorfer St. Laurent Reserve $34.99

ABV 13.0% – acidity 5.2 g/l – residual sugar 2.2 g/l
93 points 
The Wine Enthusiast

Intense dark berry bouquet, well-balanced palate with rich fruit, elegant, substantial wine with great potential. 
A fine companion to duck, pork and cassolet. 

The Beers!!
Collective Arts, Life in the Clouds, 4 pack $14.99
Simcoe and Mosaic hops balance each other to make this juicy IPA explosively fruit forward in both taste and aroma while curbing any unbearable sweetness to make an extremely drinkable beer. 

Collective Arts No. 8 IPA, 4 pack $16.99

8% ABV
Our biggest and just possibly our most beautiful IPA Series release to date. IPA #8 is double dry hopped with Simcoe, Moutere and Columbus hops, so you should expect a cloudy bright pour and intense fruit, dank citrus and pine notes. Best enjoyed as soon as you can get it in your house.

Perennial Sump Coffee Imperial Stout, 750 ml $22.99
ABV: 11.5%
Our imperial coffee stout is made in collaboration with the devilishly handsome Scott Carey & Co. at South City"s Sump Coffee. 
For this year"s batch, we chose a coffee from the "La Virgen" region of Colombia.
