Rare Wine Open Today,


Every week at Wijnhuis West, we open a rare wine for our customers to taste. This is usually a spontanious event with no particular date or time, but we will try to post what we open or plan to open that day. 

Last week, we opened a 1928 Chateau Branaire Duluc - Ducru and it was a wine to remember, with a still very vibrant fruit of fresh red ripe fruit and distictive bouquet of strawberries, dark cherry, cedar, earthy truffle with a very light color of burnt brick with an orange rim. 

Wednesday June 17th, at two o'clock, we opened a 1988 Heitz Martha's vineyard from Napa Valley. If you see this notice, please come by the shop and ask for a free taste of this well made California Cabernet. The bouquet is of deep dark rich cabernet fruit containing typical Napa Valley terroir, with dark cherry, red current, toasty oak with a hint of mint and eucalyptus. Balanced acid and tannins on the palate with explosive ripe cabernet sauvignon fruit.

Today, Wednesday, July 8th; We have opened the 1995 Silver Oak Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Savignon and the 1986 LaJota Vineyards Napa Valley Howell Mountain Cabernet Savignon.
