Miami Int’l Wine Fair is in full swing

Miami Wine Fair
Thaddeus will be blogging from the Miami International Wine Fair this weekend. The decade-old fair is open to the trade only and boasts of being the “leading” wine trade sow in the U.S. Indeed, it is huge: more than 1,800 wines from 20 countries. This will be the seventh edition of the Florida International Wine Challenge, with winners announced Saturday night.

Jordan Winery SA

Jordan is not only a great winery but also a great restaurant attached to the winery.  2009 Nineyards Chardonny was a very good wine with serious notes of buttersctch, vanilla and oak, but a well blance wine that finished lovely.  The 2006 Cobbler Hill, is a bordeaux blend I thought was outstanding it was a drak cherry fruit with hints of tobacco black currant with the oak well intergrated to make a beautiful complex wine.  The other reason to go to Jordan Winery is for the food ‘WOW ‘what a great restaurant at a world class winery hats off to chef George Jardine, and don’t forget to visit the cheese room for an incredibile expericence.
