Explore wines from the West Coast as Al Zarrella of Precept Wine joins us at Christmas Farm Inn on Tuesday, April 11. A four-course meal of dishes paired with the wines begins at 6 pm in our restored historic Barn. The bar opens at 5 pm. The cost is $75 all-inclusive.

Precept Wine is one of the fastest-growing wine companies in the United States, with a unique portfolio representing emerging American wine regions throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho and New Mexico. They are trailblazers in American winemaking and uniquely poised as an industry leader. The company landed four Wine Spectator 100 Top Values of 2016.

Zarrella will present four wines:

Waterbrook Reserve Chardonnay, from Columbia Valley, Washington. Aromatics and flavors of green apple and key lime introduce spice and melon-driven flavors mid palate. A finish of vanillins and dried apple notes with a nicely weighted viscosity are balanced by alcohol, leaving only a faint illusion of sweetness.

Primarius Pinot Noir, from Oregon. Aromatics suggest brambly cane berries and Bing cherries accented by some subtle notes of cinnamon and clove. The palate carries these aromas on and compliments them with lively acidity and just a hint of oak sweetness. The mouthfeel is round and pleasant and yields some further depth suggesting Morello cherries and nutmeg. The finish lingers with soft, silky tannins and leaves an aftertaste of sweet red and black fruits and Christmas spice.

Canoe Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon, from Columbia Valley, Washington. Spiced floral aromas lead to layered juicy flavors of red currant and smoky plum, with a deep, velvety finish.

Gruet Blanc de Noir, American Sparkling Wine, from New Mexico. Pale salmon in color, this full-bodied wine had a fine mousse and a creamy, rich texture. Complex aromas and flavors of raspberry, baked pear and cherry are complemented by a hint of toasted vanilla. The balance of fruit, minerals and crisp acidity lead to a round mouthfeel and lasting finish.
