Wineberry Boutique Wines with Valerie McDaniel (23 Jones St., Manhattan)

Valerie will be pouring several of Wineberry’s lovely selections, including the amazing Domaine La Croix Belle Coteaux du Languedoc 2005. This luscious, rich, and full-bodied southern blend is drinking phenomenally now with layers of dark plum, chocolate, cassis, and brandied cherry flavors. Plenty of smoke and bittersweet chocolate on the finish, but everything stays well in balance throughout.
