There are some reviews that make me want to scream “I LOVE MY JOB!!!” This would be one of them!! Wine!! I love wine! Now, I have to start with a disclaimer, I am not a wine aficionado. My wine training (I say that with a smile!) was from traveling on Amtrak’s Starlight Train. They offered a class on wine tasting, I remember three steps, Aroma, Appearance and Palette. I don’t know how to describe different grapes and earthy tones, but, I’ll do my best in this review.
Uncorked Ventures has a new fan!! ME!!! These guys know their wines!! I was sent 2 bottles of absolutely phenomenal wine. The first was Thomas Alexander Le Tigre. This is a smooth tasting red wine. 71% Syrah and 29% Grenache. This wine is so delicious it appealed to everyone at the table!! Delicious!! The color was a beautiful deep clear purple. A beautiful fruity aroma. The taste? Smooth and delicious! Full body taste. I love this wine!!! There were only 175 cases made!! This is a special wine!!
Uncorked Venture is the baby of brothers-in-law Mark Aselstine and Matt Krause. They travel everywhere from California, Oregon and Washington wine country to find the very best wines that few people have ever heard of. Me included. These guys truly love good wine and they KNOW what they are doing!! Le Tigre proved that.
Y’all know me, I save my favorite for last. Vallee D’ Aoste, Pinot Gris 2009, is a light fruity wine. I swear I’ve never had such a smooth, light wine before. This wine is a beautiful golden color. I want a full barrel of this wine!! Just back up the truck into my kitchen!! This is the best white wine I’ve ever tasted!! E-V-E-R!!
Mark and Matt build relationships with the winemakers and vineyard proprietors, they are able to access special limited production wines that astonish and impress. Again, I am one of them!! These are truly unforgettable wines!!
Uncorked Venture has wine essentials, wine gift baskets and my favorite a wine CLUB!!! This would be an EXCELLENT Mother’s Day gift!! 2 bottles of wine delivered every month? You’ll be mom’s favorite. I promise! I know…. I’m a mom!! I wouldn’t lie to you. BTW Uncorked Ventures wine clubs start at $40 a month for two unique wines.
Whether as appreciated gifts, in gift baskets with unique artisan items, or as a member of one of our wine clubs, we promise wine experiences that satisfy, surprise and create memories.
