January 7th Show… Cheese and Wine

The Cheese Shop is first up today :  Alumni of The Little Nell, both Sarah (she will be on the air today) and Andrew plan to bring their passion for good quality handmade food to The Cheese Shop, but leave the sky high prices behind. The lunch menu is getting a fresh new look, with reinvented classics like grilled cheese (it is a cheese shop after all), composed salads and crockpot favorites. The menu will rotate to utilize local product throughout the seasons. The cheeses and specialty foods will remain, but expect to see some new interesting products replace old tired ones. They haven’t forgotten about gift baskets or cheese trays either, these will stay too! Both Sarah and Andrew have an appreciation for artisan cheeses and cured meats, partly due to working under former Little Nell executive chef Ryan Hardy so they will share that knowledge with each and every customer.

The Lota project started in 2003, when the Cousiño family decided to create a world class wine for the 150th anniversary. Lota gathers two passions of the family: the coal mining and wines. Both began in the XIX century and were the starting point of the great legacy of this traditional family. Lota is a wine that combines tradition, the history of the Cousiño and them distinctive elegance of the Cousiño-Macul wines, with the cohesion of a winemaking team that is guided by excellence.

Episode 701: Villa Maria Cabernet / Merlot …  Susie Mayr and William Davis talk New Zealand today from an Italian Restaurant. The Wine: Dark, almost impenetrable crimson hues indicate the youthfulness and density of the wine to follow. Crème de casis, bitter dark chocolate, coffee grindings, dried mint and graphite flow seamlessly from the nose to the palate. The palate is well structured with fine-grained tannins, concentrated, but with an overall elegance that can be difficult to find when coupled with this intensity.
