by Kafka Wine Co.
Hello Chicago Pride.com readers! I’m glad to announce that starting this month you’ll be able to preview KAFKA wine co.’s wines of the month...online! These selections are personal favorites of the staff; wines with character and charm.
And in keeping with the store’s motto, Cheap. Easy. Fun., all of our wine of the month selections (and over 250 other fabulous wines) are always under $15! This month we’ll be highlighting wines that are perfect for our favorite food holiday, Thanksgiving. So here we go...
Pierre Sparr Riesling Reserve ‘02
For our white wine of the month, we’ve chosen a food-friendly dry Riesling from Alsace, France. It bursts with big flavors of ripe apple, apricot and flowers, perfect for the bird and all its tasty trimmings.
Laboure-Roi Pinot Noir ‘Les Sangliers’ Reserve ‘01
For the red, we chose a lively, light-bodied French Pinot Noir that’s filled with flavors of cherry and damp earth. A fantastic choice with salmon, chicken or for gobbling up turkey (of course).
Dunnewood Signatuver Charbono Port ‘96
Napa Valley, CA
For after dinner, we think there’s nothing better to treat yourself to than a rich Port. This one’s from California and envelops you with aromas of black plums, tobacco and licorice followed by flavors of cocoa, toasty oak and cream. Wonderful on a cold night.
So come check out these and other great holiday wines at KAFKA. And don’t forget our First Fridays wine tasting series held the first Friday of every month. December 3rd will feature wines from our ‘earthy’ category and holiday surprises. So bring your friends, or come make some new ones! Call to reserve now. Space is limited!
