Ladies and Gentlemen We Have Our Winners!

Thursday, November 6th and Thursday November 13th 2014   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 the wines we tasted here. As always, the event was well attended and a good time was had by all. This year we asked our guests to vote on their favorite white and red wines.  They did, and the results are in! Here are the best in show:

 

 

 

As promised, we put all ballots into a bag, shook 'em up and selected our random winners.  The winners receive one bottle each of the best in show wines. Our winners have been contacted, and have picked up thier wines.Thank you to everyone that voted.

 

Best In Show Bloomington

Best In Show White

 

This was a close race!

This crisp, lively white wine from northern Italy edged out its closest competitor by three votes. Thank you Aaron Barger from Rootstock Wines for this gem. Ca’ Lojera Laguna is a personal favorite of Cheers' very own Kristi and she was really happy to see it win best of show!

Best In Show Red

It wasn't even close.

Smith & Hook Cabernet Sauvignon ran away with it, receiving 15 more votes than its closest competitor! None of us were very surprised; this has been a Cheers favorite for a long time. Thank you Bill Anderson from Paustis Wine Company for featuring our best of show red.

 

Best In Show Chanhassen

We had two ties in Chanhassen! Thats right our top red AND top white wines got the exact number of votes! We considered having a "sip off" but instead decided to declare a tie and double the winners!

Best in Show White (s)

Hook and Ladder Gewürztraminer 

An elegant mix of lychee, peach and fig flavors pair up with a crisp structure that is the perfect foil to the slightest note of sweetness.

Centorri Moscato

Pale yellow with a slight frizzante.  Aromas of peaches and pears with a delicate sweetness on the palate.  Bright and fragrant with a honeycomb scented sweetness, this wine is lightly floral with a fine textured and gently creamy mousse from the delicate bubbles.  Great complexity and balance with flavors of apricot on the finish.  Makes a great addition to brunch!

Best in Show Red (s)

Smith & Hook Cabernet

Richly textured on the palate, this wine’s robust tannins provide a frame for black cherry flavors and spicy notes of vanilla and cloves.

Black Ink Red Wine

Black Ink is a blend featuring flavors of juicy blackberry, smoky licorice, with a hint of spice.

 

Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you soon.

-Cheers!

One Last Kiss, California

Made in a full-bodied style with mouth watering balance, the wine is full of spicy cloves and blackberry fruit. This is a wine that will go well with a cigar on a summer evening. It will also go well with pastas or barbequed dishes.

Montevicor Cava, Spain

70% Chardonnay & 30% Macabeo, this wine hailing from Calatayud is a pale yellow color, crystalline with bright hues. Its froth is elegant and permanent.  In the nose, beautiful fruit aromas with leesy characters.  In the palate the carbonic from the second fermentation is perfectly integrated into the mouth, being soft and well balanced. This outstanding Cava is a great match for fish, shell fish and white meat.

Nightfall Pinot Noir, California

This lighter-bodied Lodi Pinot is very fragrant with discernible and appealing fruit including cherry and currants.

Gambellara Soave I Basalti, Italy

The color is a brilliant straw yellow with fresh fruit perfumes, especially apple and pear, and floral notes such as elder and bloom.  The taste is fresh and light, with a very interesting acidity.  There is an important presence of mineral salts due to the volcanic origin of the soil.

Modest Vodka, Wisconsin

Handmade, distilled from 100% corn in a copper still, each batch created the “heads” and the “tails" are removed, leaving the “heart” containing the highest levels of purity, which not only taste better, but helps you avoid impurity induced headaches. 

Jason Helseth from Vinocopia will feature the following selections 

Piattelli Torrontes

With cool nights at 5500 feet elevation, this wine shows floral notes of lavender, honey suckle, and rose petals on the nose.    Completely dry, but soft and elegant on the finish.

Hook and Ladder Gewürztraminer 

An elegant mix of lychee, peach and fig flavors pair up with a crisp structure that is the perfect foil to the slightest note of sweetness.

Deloach California Pinot Noir

The California Pinot Noir is an elegant, well balanced wine offering mouth watering flavors of cherry and cranberry accented beautifully with just a touch of spice.

 

Lyeth, Fleur de Lyeth

A blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and other Bordeaux varietals, this wine provides harmony and balance.   The wine coats the palate with rich flavors of blueberry and plum accented by subtle red fruit notes of strawberry and Bing cherry.

Hook and Ladder Cabernet

Aromas of cassis, black currant, leather and pipe tobacco leads into a mix of dark fruit flavors with prominent sweet herb, mint and mocha.

Tippy Cow Vanilla and Mint

The most interesting and unique creams created, from the makers of Rum Chata, using real cream from Wisconsin.

Andrew Hardgrove  from Wirtz Beverage will feature the following selections

Black Ink Red Wine

Black Ink is an ode to fantasy through the arts, portraying elegance with an edge. In a celebration of decadence, juicy blackberry cobbler meets smoky licorice with a hint of spice. The capsule is marked with the allusive squid in a nod to the deep dark red hues within the bottle.

King Estate Pinot Gris

Our Pinot Gris style emphasizes fruit forward aromas boasting citrus and tropical fruits, without excess residual sugar levels. This wine is designed to drink exceptionally well both on its own and when paired with food.

 

King Estate Pinot Noir

Rich ruby color.  On the nose, aromas of black cherry, beet root, cinnamon, cigar box, caramel, oak, leather, plum, strawberry, and forest floor. On the palate, flavors of tobacco leaf, black pepper, plum, toasted oak, clove, cinnamon, leather, mushroom, and strawberry.   A complex, elegant, and balanced wine with round tannins and mellow acidity.

Rodney Strong Sonoma County Merlot

Plum and blueberry flavors with a touch of dried herb predominate in this soft, rich, mouth filling Merlot, and are enhanced by aging in small oak barrels for a toasty, spicy vanilla character, and a lingering berry-cream finish.  Drink this satisfying Merlot over the next two to four years.

Louis Jadot Beaujolais Villages

Fresh red fruits on the nose with a hint of dark cherry.  Slightly spicy with a touch of grey pepper, licorice, and a touch of rose flower. The whole wine is very well balanced with a nice acidity and the tannins presence on the finish invites food pairings such as grilled red meat, white fish, cheese or simply as the sole wine of a meal.

Dry Creek Dry Chenin Blanc

A classic summertime sipper, our wonderfully crisp and refreshing Dry Chenin Blanc perfectly represents our love for this classic grape variety. In the glass, fragrant aromatics such as white peach, melon and citrus are immediately appealing. This vintage displays the classic Loire character of earth and crushed minerals that give the wine depth and nuance. There is an underlying chalky quality with some spicy undertones that really make this wine shine.
