Concert Wine Tasting and Welcome September!

by Jonathan Gaby on September 1, 2017

August is history and we are now welcoming September! Soon, we’ll see the leaves on the trees on the old capitol lawn change color, the temperatures get a little cooler, and, maybe the Pumpkin Spice Latte will come out too!

Wine Tasting, Thomas Henry 2016 Chardonnay,  Sonoma County CA, Thomas Henry 2012 Grenache, Bennett Valley, Sonoma County CA, Santa Marina 2016 Pinot Grigio, Italy, Jester's Peach Wine, n/v Kentucky, Bent Penny Band

Meanwhile, we are going to welcome Downtown Frankfort Concert Series audience members to our first wine tasting of the month. The concert features the Bent Penny Band, which you can find out more by reading to the end.

Thomas Henry 2016 Chardonnay,  Sonoma County CA 

“Green apple and pear are complemented by tropical fruits with a hint of lemon custard.  Richly textured and concentrated with balanced acidity that drives a lingering finish. Although perfect on it’s own, this chardonnay is delicious with shellfish like crab, lobster, and prawns prepared in a buttery, cream sauce.  Perfect with a simple roasted chicken and pasta or risotto.” – Thomas Henry Wines

Thomas Henry 2012 Grenache, Bennett Valley, Sonoma County CA

“The Thomas Henry Grenache is a perfect every-day wine and boasts a savory spice, dense tannins and a lovely floral aromatics. Hints of mission fig and dried strawberry support the lovely layers of spice! Pump up your pizza night with this Grenache! Try chanterelle mushrooms with fontina or Bacon with Smoked Gouda Cheese!” – Thomas Henry Wines

Santa Marina 2016 Pinot Grigio, Italy

“A light, straw gold color with a nose of an elegant, delicate bouquet. The palate presents a delicious, refreshing, distinctive, fruit up-front, taste. Beautifully balanced with a crisp, exceptionally clean finish. Superbly complements seafood, poultry, veal dishes and pasta.” – Chatham Imports

Jester’s Peach Wine, n/v Kentucky

This is a new, fresh out of the winery from Horseshoe Bend wine, that’s aged in bourbon barrels for around 90 days. Its one you should give a shot and try!
