Denver Art Museum Uncorked Reserve Wine Tasting

Denver Art Museum’s 2018 Uncorked Reserve Wine Pairings

Molly’s was once again a proud sponsor of Uncorked Reserve and Uncorked AFTERGLO, the Denver Art Museum’s two-tiered spring fundraising event celebrating two of our favorite things – wine and creativity! The evening raised funds to support the Denver Art Museum’s groundbreaking exhibitions and creative programming. Uncorked Reserve includes a silent auction cocktail reception followed by a fabulous four-course seated dinner featuring exquisite wine pairings with each course. Following the dinner, Reserve guests headed to Uncorked AFTERGLO, a party featuring art activations by local creatives, live music and artistic treats and cocktails.

The wines served at this year’s event were all chosen in collaboration with our wonderful supplier partners: Hope Estate, Da Luca, Enotec Imports, The Prisoner Wine Company, B Side Soulful North Coast Wine, and Vini Pavan. Next time you’re in the store look for the shelf tags indicating the wine was a part of Uncorked Reserve!

**Join us at the Molly’s tasting bar on Friday, April 20th 4-6PM for a special wine tasting featuring four wines served at Uncorked: Da Luca Prosecco, Marchesini Chiaretto Rosé, B Side Cabernet, and Pavan Dolce Moscato (pictured below).**

Denver Art Museum Uncorked Reserve Wines

Cocktail Reception

HOPE FAMILY ESTATE WINES CHARDONNAY
Hunter Valley, Australia

“A complex, balanced, and fresh style of wine that drinks well now and that will age superbly well. Showing lots of bright fruit, the complexity in the wine from a combination of wild yeast fermentation, partial malolactic fermentation and barrel maturation, leave this wine in a great position to impress.”

HOPE FAMILY ESTATE WINES SEMILLON
Hunter Valley, Australia

“This special batch of Hunter Semillon has been carefully aged to develop the sought after honey, toasty and lanolin characters of the traditional Hunter style. The wine has ample palate weight and will appeal to the red wine drinker.”

HOPE FAMILY ESTATE WINES SHIRAZ
Hunter Valley, Australia Was $15.98 | NOW $10.98

“Earthy, peppery and with a generous berry fruit, this Shiraz is medium bodied and is a good example of hunter valley Shiraz. The Estate Shiraz is matured with a mix of new and used oak, which contributes to a complex, flavorful and satisfying finish.”

Location: Lane 11, Aisle A

Amuse-bouche

DA LUCA PROSECCO
Veneto, Italy Was $10.98 | NOW $7.98

“Sparkler with appealing floral, citrus and stonefruit aromas. The palate is fresh and flavoursome, displaying characters of peach, apple and capsicum. Da Luca sports a pleasant round mouthfeel with a touch of sweetness. This Prosecco lingers on the palate with tropical notes and a clean mouth watering finish.”

Paired with: Chilled Spring Pea Soup
Location: Lane 3, Aisle B

Salad Course

MARCHESINI CHIARETTO ROSE
Bardolino, Veneto, Italy Was $14.98 | NOW $7.98

“Chiaretto is the most famous name for rosé wines in Italy and can only be made from the Bardolino zone bordering beautiful Lake Garda in the Veneto region of northern Italy. The ‘lake effect’ generates ample ripeness in the Corvina and Rondinella grapes. This gives the wine great aromatics and good density on the palate. This dry rosé wine is fruity, fragrant and delicate with aromas of peach-blossoms.”

Paired with: Pickled Cauliflower & Gem Lettuce Salad
Location: Lane 2, Aisle B

Entree

B SIDE CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Napa Valley, California Was $28.98 | NOW $22.98

“On the nose, beautiful notes of cassis, licorice and blackberry are framed by dark, toasty oak from fourteen months of aging. A ripe, rich and layered glass of wine abundant with bold fruit flavors and subtle nuances of toffee, espresso and dark chocolate. This wine reflects its origin, with powerful structure, firm tannins and a perfectly integrated finish.”

Paired with: Angus Sliced Tenderloin
Location: Lane 6, Aisle B

THE PRISONER RED BLEND
Napa Valley, California Was $49.98 | NOW $44.98

“This Zinfandel based blend shows aromas or ripe cherry and cedar with hints of rose petal and sweet oak. The lovely entry leads into a savory mid palate. Ripe fig and black currant dominate the finish with soft well integrated tannins.”

Paired with: Angus Sliced Tenderloin
Location: Lane 4, Aisle B

Dessert Course

PAVAN DOLCE MOSCATO
Veneto, Italy Was $14.98 | NOW $10.98

“Pavan has a generous nose boasting orange blossom and ripe melon. This wine has a lower sugar content than most Moscatos making it a perfect pairing to desserts or brunch fare that go for savory/tangy vs. Sweet. Pavan is made in the classic frizzante (half sparkling) style.

Paired with: Lemon Meringue Tartlet
Location: Lane 8, Aisle B
