Holiday Wine Tasting at the Goose

Wednesday, Dec. 22, 5-7pm

Stop by the Goose's Enoteca for a sampling of lush, full-bodied, comforting wine that suits the weather outside (that's frightful) and the fireside (that's so delightful).

Versatile as a stand up, go-to bottle for the winter flavors on our plates--like the Wagyu roasts, pheasant, and hams still available at the Goose--this juice is meant for the holiday table. And it makes a great gift....since "only hedonists need apply," it could go for the nice and the naughty on your list.

Wed., Dec. 22, 5-7pm

"The 2008 Patriota is composed of 60% Bonarda and 40% Malbec aged in French (40% new) and American (seasoned) oak. Purple/black in color, it has a splendid bouquet of cigar box, Asian spices, lavender, black cherry, and plum. Full-bodied, dense, rich, and powerful, this loaded effort has gobs of flavor, succulence, and great length. Only hedonists need apply." ~ Wine Advocate, 92 points
