Last week Nosh’s wine tasting featured a Napa pinot gris from Three Pears, and while I don’t identify as a pinot gris fan, I found it to be delicious! The first sip might have been just okay, but the manager that night, Marty, already knew how biased I am against white wines and he coached me to pay attention to my second and third sips. It was so worth the investment in my patience!
The second choice that night, the red wine, was a Paso Robles cabernet sauvignon from Foxglove. It lacked the boldness of the big Napa cabs I’m used to, but it was well-rounded and certainly enjoyable.
When we taste new wines at a tasting, we get precious few sips and not much time to aerate them. Because of this I have a little broader range of what tastes acceptable enough to me to want to try again. My litmus test is to ask myself after each sampling, “would I drink this again on purpose?” The answer for both of these wines is an absolute YES! Especially given such reasonable price points (~$20/bottle).
With atmosphere of a wine bar and patio seating, Nosh Eatery & Wine Bar is definitely worth checking out! Give them a try for your next business lunch, date night or girl’s night out. Keep calm and nosh on!
