“Uncorking” by Paul
Pintxo is happy to bring you Wine Wednesday and the unveiling of our new wine and cava menu!
This week’s Wine Wednesday post is going to be a bit different. With the debut of our new wine menu, we thought it’d be fun to give you a peak into the two new white wines, four new red wines, and 2 new cavas you can choose from. During Wines Wednesdays, all bottles of wine are $10.00 off, so it’s a great time to come in with a friend, date, or group and sample a bottle or two.
We rarely introduce new cava, so we’re super happy and very proud of the new cavas we’ve discovered!
Juve y Camps Reserva de la Familia NV (Penedes)
A wonderfully dry, soft, and round cava with a long and moist finish.
Juve y Camps Brut Rose NV (Penedes)
A unique and fun rose made from Pinot Noir grapes. Broad with savory, spicy fruit, and a hint of cherry blossom.
New White Wines
As the weather heats up, we’ll be bringing you some more whites to choose from. For the moment, we’ve selected two fantastic whites to add to the menu.
Columna ’11 Albarino (Rias Baixas)
This white is a lovely albarino that is light bodied, with focused honeydew and citrus fruit flavors that are accented by a nice hint of saltiness. This is a perfect wine for spring and summer!
Ulacia Txakoli ’12 NV (Basque)
This is a particularly nice Basque Txakoli with the traditional effervescence that the style is known for. Ulacia is intense and complete, with pristine flavors of minerality and lime.
New Red Wines
We’ve added a large amount of new reds, four in total, and are proud to bring you some uniquely Spanish flavors. You’ll definitely want to sample at least one, and ask your server to help you pair it with something tasty to eat!
El Petit Carlania ’12 Trepat (Conca de Barbera)
This is an extremely unique red wine that is rustic on the nose, and features delicious and generously textured dark fruited palate, while also being intensely smooth. Definitely a must try!
Clua Domenech ’09 Garnacha (Terra Alta)
An unoaked red with full flavors of ripe fruit. This wine features lively acidity, great minerality, and has a nice dark, smoky complexity.
Comunica ’11 Garnacha, Carignan, and Syrah Blend (Montsant)
Comunica is a fun red that is both lively and full bodied. You’ll notice the tastes and aromas of dark fruits, minerals, and herbs.
Mauro ’11 Tempranillo and Syrah Blend (Tudela de Duero Traspinedo)
Another wine only available by the bottle, and an incredibly cool new addition to our menu. Mauro is an intense and powerful expression of fruit. It is dense, but highly accessible featuring ripe and polished tannins, and showing great roundness and smooth character.
So, now that you have a little peak, and maybe an idea of what you’re looking for, stop in and give our new wines a try! Feel free to make a reservation through our Facebook, or through OpenTable. Be sure to leave us a Yelp or OpenTable review if you have a second when you’re done. We always love the your feedback and thoughts on your dining experience.
