Friday Tasting: J.K. Carriere Wines
January 20, 2012
This Friday, January 27, from 4:30 to 6:30, winemaker Jim Prosser of J.K. Carriere Wines will be here to share. While most of our tastings feature range and variety, this one will focus on Prosser’s three very different – and we think masterful -- expressions of pinot noir: the J.K. Carriere 2009 Provocateur WV Pinot Noir, 2009 Vespidae WV Pinot Noir, and 2009 Antoinette Limited Bottling Pinot Noir.
From vintage, to vineyard, to grape, to the name on the label, Prosser is nothing if not deliberate. Corporate escapee, world traveler, and one of Outside Magazine’s "25 Coolest People" in 2004, Prosser relies on personal experience and taste rather than popular notions during his winemaking process. He says, “We like our wines, like our friends and our dinner guests, to be vibrant in character, generous in spirit, acidic in wit, balanced in consideration of opposing tastes, and above all else… real.”
Stop by, chat with the winemaker himself, and let us pair a cheese plate with some of these pinots. Commence: weekend!
