For decades the Meyer family has created red wines that express a sense of where they have been grown. With each subsequent vintage you learn something new about the character of a vineyard. Will the fruit express green notes or spice in a cold year, will it become luscious or fall apart with extended hang time, or can a drought create great fruit intensity or cause the vineyard to shut down prematurely? The wines produced at Meyer Family Cellars are as diverse as the vineyards in which they are grown. The Market Restaurant + Bar by Jennifer’s is hosting this one night dinner on Wed. Jan 11th at 6:30pm. They’ll be featuring Meyer family wines paired thoughtfully with each dish.
On this night you’ll have the opportunity to taste the Meyer family Chardonnay with honeysuckle, apricot, pineapple, and citrus flavors that’ll jump out of the glass. Once on the palate the wine comes into balance as the acidity takes center stage and brings the Chardonnay to a refreshing finish. The Meyer family Syrah, where the nose exhibits classic cooler Syrah notes of blueberry, violet, pepper, and wet earth. Complimented by a splash of grit this is a classic example of their cool-climate Syrahs. Fluffy billows, this wine is bursting with ripe fruit aromas from the moment the cork is popped. Blackberry and ripe currant intermingle with anise, cardamom, and a hint of miso. And finally, Meyer family spitfire, that is so popular, it tends to sell out immediately and you’ll get a chance to taste why!
The full menu is posted below and reservations are highly recommended.
