UPCOMING EVENTS

We're proud to offer events which cater to both experienced and developing wine connoisseurs.

July 2018
K Vintners Tasting
6:00 PM to 7:30 PM     Wed, Jul 18, 2018
Venue: Bern's Fine Wines & Spirits
Contact: Bern's Fine Wines 813-250-9463, ntelfer@bernssteakhouse.com

Please join Bern’s Fine Wines & Spirits on Wednesday July 18th from 6-7:30pm,  for a tasting featuring K Vintner’s Wine.

K Vintners starts and ends with one man, Charles Smith.  On a fated trip through Walla Walla Washington, Charles Smith befriended a Frenchman winemaker.  They both discovered their love for Syrah, and just like that K Vintners was born.  But one label was not enough. His story continues with the creation of Charles & Charles, CasaSmith ViNO, SIXTO, and Substance. We are excited to have his niece, Kelly Smith Head of Hospitality, to guide us through some of their iconic portfolio.

Featured Wines

2013 Sixto Moxee Chardonnay Washington State $42.95
"From limestone soils and very old vines (47-year-old), the 2014 Chardonnay Moxee Vineyard is 100% Chardonnay brought up all in barrel. Its medium gold color is followed by gorgeous notes of chamomile, lemon rind and spice. Rounded, layered and textured, it's a downright classy Chardonnay."  92 Points Robert Parker

2016 Substance ‘Cs’ Cabernet Sauvignon $17.95
“Amazingly, there are 125,000 cases of the value-priced 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine offers up classic aromas of crushed cassis, loamy soil and pencil lead. On the palate, it’s medium-bodied, layered and flavorful, with chewy but ripe tannins and succulent balancing acids, concluding with good length. Considering the scale of this cuvée and the pittance it commands, it’s a remarkable achievement.”  92 points Robert Parker

2015 K Vintners Milbrandt Syrah Wahluke Slope $31.95
"Rich and dramatic, the 2015 Syrah Milbrandt Vineyard bursts with lavish aromas of ripe black cherries, licorice, dark chocolate and sweet herbs. On the palate, it's full-bodied and ripe, with a broad, textural attack underpinned by fine-grained, somewhat chewy tannins that I suspect will always lend it a somewhat rustic profile this vintage. Generous and flavorful, with an ample endowment of fruit, follow it for the better part of a decade." 92 points Robert Parker

2014 K Vintners Rock Garden Syrah $59.95
"Intense yet harmonious, with floral black raspberry and garrigue aromas and well-structured flavors of blackberry, orange zest and smoky spice that linger. Drink now through 2024." 94 points Wine Spectator

 

Jackson Family Wines Crush Hour
6:30 PM to 8:30 PM     Fri, Jul 20, 2018
Venue: Bern's Fine Wines & Spirits
Contact: Bern's Fine Wines 813-250-9463, ntelfer@bernssteakhouse.com

Please join Bern’s Fine wines & Spirits on July 20th for a Crush Hour Featuring the extensive portfolio of  Jackson Family Wines.

Kendall Jackson is a global brand, just a mention of this iconic name and people know exactly which Chardonnay you are talking about.  Few people  realize the depth of this brand.  Jackson Family Wines are no longer just a California Chardonnay producer, they have been slowly branching out to other great wine regions around the world.  This week we will be concentrating on their domestic wines from Oregon and California.  This ‘Family of Wines’ has become so much more then a chardonnay, come and taste it for your self.

Five cheeses from the Bern’s Cave du Fromage will be paired with the wines, along with house made breads. The price is $25.00 per person. Reservations are requested and can ONLY be made by calling Bern’s Fine Wines & Spirits at (813) 250-9463

NOTE: We would like to accommodate everyone, but without a reservation admission is not guaranteed.

Featured Wines

2015 Gran Moraine, Chardonnay -  $42.95
“This Chardonnay offers aromas of stone fruit, dried mango, cobbler, brioche and fennel seed. On the palate, it shows notes of flint, apricot, persimmon, lime and Thai basil. The wine is beautifully full-textured, mineral driven with a sandy-textured mid-palate and a saline finish.” Wine Maker Notes

2016 Penner Ash, Viognier  - $28.95
“Aromas of peach, stone fruit, and white flowers with tropical notes. Dense and creamy texture with green pear-skin, honeydew melon, tart peach and exotic spice on the palate. Summer fruits along with fresh honeysuckle extend to a crisp finish.” Wine Maker Notes

2014 Cambria, Clone 4 Pinot Noir - $19.95
“The 2014 Pinot Noir Clone 4 comes all from a single clone and the sandy loam soils of the Cambria Estate Vineyard. It spent seven months in 23% new French oak. There are notes of spice, underbrush, some sappy flowers, hints of sappy herbs and darker raspberry fruit in this medium-bodied, supple, beautifully polished, elegant and seamless beauty. It’s incredibly high quality, and a solid value as well.”  91 points Robert Parker

2014 Freemark Abbey, Merlot - $35.95
“A soft and pretty red now with chocolate, berry and cuurrant character. Full body, round tannins and a delicious finish. Layered and rich style. Delicious. Drink now.” 93 points James suckling

2014 Arrowood, Cabernet Sauvignon - $32.95
“The 2014 Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is red fruit dominated, with dark cherry and huckleberry accompanied by floral tones of chicory and violet. Roasted coffee and a hint of anise appear on the palate along with a smooth and opulent mouth feel and weighty texture.”  Wine Maker notes
