It's been a month now since Andrés returned from his California trip and we're starting to see some of those contacts pay off here at ARIA. Our newest addition to the by-the-glass list is a wine that can't be found at any store in Atlanta, let alone any store in the US. It's Miner Family Vineyards' Sauvignon Blanc, a wine normally only sold in their tasting room in Napa. Andrés, a long time Miner fan, tasted this juice, and insisted we get some for ARIA. A few weeks later and blam, here it is:
Miner Family Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc 2008, Napa Valley, all from their Oakville property. Bright citrus nose with a little dried herb, fresh, clean, and zippy in the mouth, a simple but classic SB style. Please come in and try this great wine, especially while we are still serving Roast Halibut from Maine (sushi grade stuff) with poblanos.
