Saturday, September 9th from 2-5pm – Join us this Saturday for a free wine tasting featuring three incredible values from Wyatt. It’s Asheville’s best free wine tasting, and you’re invited. Stop on by!
As Robert Parker of the Wine Advocate said, “these wines show impeccable attention to detail and a thorough knowledge of some admirable fruit sources.” Wyatt is the negociant project of New York-based wholesaler/importer Polaner Selections, and these are brand new to North Carolina. As the Polaner website says, “To help create added quality and character for our Wyatt wines, we work with several winery partners in California who help us to create a base wine that is itself well about the fray. And then to these base wines, we add a good percentage of wine coming from small lots of a much higher pedigree and appellation. These are often declassified wines, usually aged in top-quality french oak barrels, that come from wineries that sell their wine at $30-$40-$50+ a bottle. The result: the combination creates an amazing value and lots of character for the money.” Simply put, these are among the best California wine values this guy has ever tasted. Stop by, check them out for yourself, and save big!

1. 2015 Wyatt Chardonnay (Various Regions, California) – When you look at the pedigree of the California producers that Polaner works with, it makes sense why this wine is so good. Fruit comes from sources in Napa Valley, Russian River, and the Central Coast, and the resulting wine is elegant, stylish, and way too good to cost less than $15/bottle. Moderately rich with some toasty oak notes along with ripe orchard fruit and buttered citrus notes, it’s a ton of wine for the money.
2. 2015 Wyatt Pinot Noir (Various Regions, California) – Most of the grapes for the Wyatt Pinot Noir hail from the Central Coast (Santa Barbara, Santa Rita Hills) with a smaller portion coming from Carneros and Sonoma Coast sites. The full fruited character of the Central Coast fruit melds beautifully with the spicy, earthier nuances of the Carneros and Sonoma Coast fruit to create an under-$20 Pinot Noir that is simply awesome.
3. 2015 Wyatt Cabernet Sauvignon (Various Regions, California) – Like Wyatt’s Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, the Cabernet over-delivers in a big way. Fruit comes from prime Napa sites in Calistoga and Oakville along with a bit of stuff from the Santa Cruz Mountains. The resulting wine is beautifully balanced, pure, and way better than any other under-$15 California Cab I’ve ever tasted.
