Temple Emanu-El: Life is a Cabernet
March 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$18
From Website: “Join us for a unique jazz, pop and Broadway excursion across France, Israel, Italy and the United States, enlivened by a sampling of the best of each country’s elixirs of the grape — with a sommelier on hand.
The musical journey will be led by Temple Emanu-El’s very own Cantors Mo Glazman and Sara Anderson. They will be joined by two other distinguished New York chazans: Cantor Sam Rosen of Congregation Beit Simchat Torah, who earned his master’s degree in Jewish history from JTS and was ordained by the Debbie Friedman School of Sacred Music at HUC-JIR, and Cantorial Soloist Talya Smilowitz of Congregation L’dor V’Dor on Long Island, a graduate of the Juilliard School who leads a jazz ensemble and has toured Europe with a klezmer band.
Don’t wait for Passover to drink four cups of wine . . . because life is a cabernet!
In collaboration with VinPorter
Wine selection includes:
Chaya Pinot Grigio / Italy – 100% Pinot Grigio
Straw yellow, with light amber tinges. The aromas are fruity and floral, with notes of banana, pineapple and wisteria blossoms. In the mouth it is dry with a great body and balance.
Jean Luc Colombo Cape Bleue Rose / France – 67% Syrah, 33% Mourvèdre
A light, brilliant rose petal color. The nose is floral, accented by aromas of fresh peaches and fennel. A soft and balanced mouthfeel, with fruit-driven persistence and a crisp citrus note on the finish. This is a perfect example of Provencal style Rose!
Recanati Yasmin Red Blend / Israel – 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 20% Shiraz
A harmonious, flavorful red from the sun-kissed Mediterranean vineyards of Israel. The perfect all-occasion wine, with its luminous fruit-filled aroma and flavor – an ideal pairing with cheese platters, savory dips and olives, as well as barbecue and spicier fare.
Saracina Soul of Mendocino / Mendocino California – Red Blend
Showing off a light-absorbing, inky-purple color in the glass, Soul of Mendocino is redolent with aromas of black plum and savory herb, which follow on to a dense, bramble-berry palate edged with subtle spice (thanks to 18 months in French and American oak barriques). The opulent fruit characters are beautifully balanced by velvety tannins and a streak of lively acidity.”
