New (old) wines for Tuesday Tasting at Braddock’s 15Feb11

Despite the horribly cold weather, we are charging ahead with more interesting “Tuesday Tastings” at Braddock’s (   The wines featured this week represent a great opportunity to try wines that would typically not be available to try by the glass or otherwise.   For the white wine fans, we get a true value in the Beringer Private Reserve Chardonnay, I have never seen this fine California Chardonnay served at only $5 per glass – so our white wine-loving friends will be very happy!   The reds are from two famous California Vintages that stores haven’t carried for years, but I was permitted to delve into the darkest corners of the Braddock’s wine cellar and request these wines which will hopefully provide all who try them with a sense of what these wines can become IF given enough time to age in the bottle.   As a note: Robert Parker rated the 2004 California Vintage “Outstanding” and the 2001 California VintageExtraordinary”.  Should be a fun tasting…
