Mohegan Sun Winefest & Pernod-Ricard Wines

January 30th & 31st mark the weekend of the Mohegan Sun Winefest, 2010. According to the website, there will be a healthy mix of wines and even ales avaliable for consumers and trade to sip on, analyze and experience next to several restaurants.

In the mix, Pernod-Ricard Wines will be pouring some excellent examples of their portfolio, including the even so popular, Jacob's Creek Reserve Shiraz.

Be sure to look for:

Brancott Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2007
: light straw in colour with green highlights. Aromas of ripe capsicum, gooseberry, and grapefruit dominate with tropical fruit notes apparent. This wine displays full fruit intensity. The ripe capsicum fl avours meld well with gooseberry and supporting mango and passion fruit fl avours. A well-balanced wine showing the lively, crisp acidity associated with this style.

Campo Viejo Reserva 2004: Intense maroon ruby red with woven edges. It combines the aroma of mature fruit with vanilla. Round and tasty wine.

Graffigna Centenario Reserve Malbec 2005: deep, dark red with complex aromas of mature black fruit and delicate black pepper notes. Well integrated tannins, round velvety body. Persistent and long finish, slightly toasted.

Graffigna Centenario Reserve Pinot Grigio 2008
: Jasmine notes embraced by peach and apricot aromas. The wine is a bright, clear gold with a subtle and refined finish.

Jacob's Creek Reserve Shiraz 2006: Intense dark berry fruit flavours, with layers olive and spice. The 2005 Jacob’s Creek Reserve Shiraz is full bodied with velvety tannins which provide the perfect backbone for expression of concentrated, spicy Shiraz flavours. The generous approachable fruit flavours ensure this wine can be enjoyed now; however the balance and structure of this wine will, if carefully cellared, evolve gracefully for the next 10 years.

Sandeman Founders Reserve Porto NV: Intense ruby red color, brilliant and clean. Rich red fruit aromas with a touch of age create an elegant reflection of powerful flavors, the fruit and fire characteristic of young classic Porto balanced with the finesse.

So there you have it. According the online program, Pernod-Ricard wines will be pouring at table 316 at the Mohegan Sun Winefest this weekend. If you're going, make sure you stop by to sample some of their award winning selections.
