Great Wine, Alba Time. Barbaresco Vertical at Jaynes

We will be pouring a Produttori Del Barbaresco Vertical Wine Flight Tuesday through Thursday this Week April 14-17.  Included is the  2004 and 2005 Barbaresco and the 2006 Langhe Nebbiolo.  $16   Produttori is a staff favorite here at Jayne’s and we are very excited to open these bottles side by side.   This is an excellent introduction to the great Nebbiolo grape from a standout producer.   We should be able to answer any questions and our good friend Jeremy Parzen at Do Bianchi will be available via text for anything that stumps us!

Alongside these great wines we will be serving a pair of rustic, springtime dishes:  
Grilled Polenta with Asparagus, Jamon Serrano and Shaved Parmesan.  This dish may also be served vegetarian sans Jamon 9.50
Capellini Pomodoro with Heirloom Tomatoes and Pesto Rubbed Crostini  16.50

We have added a new vegetarian item to the menu that has been singing with great springtime farm produce.
Moroccan Spiced Seasonal Vegetables with curried cous cous, fava beans, baby carrots, shitake mushrooms, spinach, zucchini, pearl onions and  lemon yogurt raita  $16.50 

The Reserve wine list program has been off the charts fun recently.  It has always been a dream of ours to pour some rare and old vintage wines at a decent price.  With a lot of digging we’re finally making this happen.   These bottles aren’t on the regular list so please feel free to ask your server or bartender.  Here’s a sample:

1982 Chateau Prieure-Lichine, Margaux
1989 Trimbach Sylvaner, Alsace 
2002 Massena ‘The 11
th Hour’ Shiraz, Barossa 
1992 Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino
2004 Palacios ‘Les Terrasses’, Priorat
1997 Michele Chiarlo Barbaresco Rabaja
1990 Cadet-Piola, St. Emilion 
1995 Capezzana Carmignano 
1999 Ridge Lytton Station Zinfandel 
1990 Cadet-Piola, St. Emilion

We look forward to seeing you all very soon!

  1. Okay, wow, so much great wine and so little time. Okay…

    First of all, 92 Il Poggione… please blog that… I’ve tasted with them back to the 1970s but have NEVER tasted 92…

    95 Capezzana: 96 was the last year they were traditional… 95 is a great vintage for that wine… damn, I would love to try that…

    and did I hear something about 85 Asili????!!!!!

    McDuff’s Food and Wine Trail recently posted my translation of winemaker Aldo Vacca’s vintage notes for Produttori del Barbaresco 04, 05, 06 and I’ll be posting on my tasting with Aldo (at Vinitaly) soon…

    thanks for the shout out and please do text me any questions about Produttori del Barbaresco… seriously…

    We are very sorry you missed the Barbaresco vertical. I now see that I had the Tuesday through Thursday right, but botched the 14-17. We have all of these vintages available as well as 2003 in magnums. We’re hunting for riservas… We hope to see you soon. There’s a new blog you might be interested in called My Own Private Produttori del Barbaresco.
