Wine Galore! Five Wineries Pour for SSU Millennials – Silver Oak, Twomey Cellars, Corkscrew, Azari Vineyard and Dutcher Crossing

By Guest Author Jenna Riggan – The SSU Wine Sense club was fortunate enough to have five awesome wineries pour for us at the most recent Food & Wine Pairing! 50 students tasted wines from Silver Oak, Twomey Cellars, Corkscrew, Azari Vineyard and Dutcher Crossing. Our chefs prepared delicious food as usual, including tri-tip, asparagus and raspberry brownies.

 

Favorite Wines  

The first favorite wine of the evening was a 2009 Dutcher Crossing Stuhlmuller Vineyard Alexander Valley Chardonnay.  ($34.00)  This wine was an instant favorite with its floral aromas, and lemon, vanilla and crème brulée flavors. Dutcher Crossing Winery is located in Dry Creek Valley. For more information on Dutcher Crossing Winery, see http://www.dutchercrossingwinery.com/

The second favorite wine of the evening was a 2009 Twomey Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. ($49.99) This Pinot Noir wowed tasters with aromas of blackberry, blueberry and pepper, and big flavors of dark cherry and spices. Twomey Cellars is a winery that was started by the same family that owns Silver Oak, and focuses on sustainable wine practices in southeastern Napa Valley.
