Free on Friday’s Wine Tasting this Friday, September 9th from 4-7 p.m. featuring Joe Wagner’s new Boen Pinot Noir!! Get your weekend off to a good start with the best free wine tasting in Asheville! For fans of Belle Glos’ Dairyman Pinot Noir (also made by Joe Wagner), you don’t want to miss this one. Joe has been a busy guy of late — he sold his Meiomi brand a little over a year ago for for upwards of $300 million, he launched a new Oregon Pinot Noir called Elouan (a big hit here), and he most recently launched his new Russian River Pinot Noir called Boen just a few months back. We are the first ones to stock, sell and pour it in Asheville, and we invite you all out to try this mammoth Pinot Noir. In addition, we’ll pour you a rich and snappy German Pinot Gris and a firm, structured, and value priced Red Bordeaux from the highly acclaimed 2012 vintage. Stop by, taste, learn and save every Friday at Table Wine.

1. 2014 Villa Wolf Pinot Gris (Pfalz, Germany) – The warmer Pfalz region of Germany borders France’s Alsace to the west. This aspect of the vineyards results in richer, fuller expressions of wine much like those found across the border. Villa Wolf’s Pinot Gris offers up ample body and texture, a touch of spritz, and just a hint of sweetness. Flavors of ripe peach, pear, flowers and mineral permeate this incredible Pinot Gris value that reminds us of good Oregon Pinot Gris at a fraction of the price.
Tasting Price: $11.69 on mixed 3-packs | $11.04 on mixed 6-packs | $10.39 on mixed cases
2. 2015 Boen Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley, California) – For fans of any of the Belle Glos wines, you should make it a point to come by this Friday and taste Joe Wagner’s newest Pinot Noir. Possessing many of the same extroverted, pleasure bent traits as his Belle Glos Pinots at a fraction of the price, this is the perfect drink for the wine hedonist in your life. Full bodied, creamy in texture, and loaded with ripe and ready flavors of warm cherry, strawberry, vanilla, cocoa, and spice, this super smooth and rich red will make some heads spin.
Tasting Price: $26 on mixed 3-packs | $25.49 on mixed 6-packs | $23.99 on mixed cases
3. 2012 Chateau Recougne Bordeaux Superieur (Bordeaux, France) – Chateau Recougne is consistently one of the great Bordeaux values on the planet. As Robert Parker says: “A winner from the Milhade family, Chateau Recougne has a reputation for lasting 20-30 years in the bottle in many vintages. I do not think the 2012 has that much staying power, but it over-delivers in body, richness, density and length. It is a shockingly good effort displaying a dark ruby color as well as abundant notes of earth, licorice and black currants, surprising body, richness and depth. A major sleeper of the vintage, it should drink well for 7-8 years.” – 88 points Robert Parker
