Ladies and Gentlemen "Your Best In Show!"


Thursday, November 5th and Thursday November 12th 2015   Cheers hosted our two annual holiday wine tasting events.  They were very fun evenings with six vendors on hand, each with six wines available to sample. You can see all the wines we tasted here. As always, the event was well attended and a  good time was had by all. A few lucky raffle winners left with some fabulous prizes!

Once again we asked our guests to vote on their favorite white and red wines. As promised, we put all ballots into a bag, shook 'em up and selected two random winners, one from each event.  The winners receive one bottle each of the best in show wines from the evening they attended. Our winners have been contacted, and (as of this posting) will pick up their wines soon.  Thank you all for enjoying the evenings with us.  Thank you also for participating in the best of show voting. 

For the most part the winners were, “hands down." However, the winning red was a winner at BOTH Bloomington and Chanhassen! That’s a first. The whites ran a little closer with the winner in Chanhassen squeaking out the win by one vote. Next week we will post a more thorough accounting of the winners but for now… (Cue the music)…

Here they are, your Best In Show!


Best In Show White Wine, Bloomington

Mark Nordstrom- The Wine Company

Pichot Vouvray 100% Chenin Blanc

From the Loire Valley in France, fantastic aroma of spice, pear and a hint of honey showing a little chalkiness with an elegant finish.


Best In Show White Wine, Chanhassen

Derek Lindquist- Wine Merchants

Astoria Sparkling Moscato , Italy

 Fine and persistent bubbles with straw yellow and greenish reflections. The wine is delicately sweet with a basis of fresh fruit flavors of peach, pear, and apricot balanced with gentle notes of white petals and sage. The finish is balanced and well rounded.

Best In Show Red Wine, Bloomington AND Chanhassen

Michael David Freakshow Cab

Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grown in Lodi, this delicious, dense purple-colored wine possesses plenty of crème de cassis, licorice, spice box and cedar notes in a medium-to-full-bodied, supple, explosively fruity, fruit-bomb style.
