The Wine Spot

The Wine Spot Review: Our introduction to this new new wine and art hot spot in Cleveland Heights was a wine and craft beer tasting this past Friday. Upon entering we were impressed with the overall design and flow of the space. Owners Adam and Susan Fleischer successfully converted the location from a hardware store into a wine destination with a downtown loft feel. Multiple seating areas and a private room invite visitors to stay and relax. The industrial-finished walls feature artwork by local artists. Our group of friends is always looking for new places to go (see here) so I love that not only is this a new, hip venue, but their ongoing events will provide consistently new options for us to try out.


Wines Purchased:  I chose the 2011 Natura Chardonnay from the Casablanca Valley of Chile's Emiliana Organic Vineyards and made with organically grown grapes. Typically sold for $11.99, The Wine Spot had it on sale for $8.99 for the event. More importantly, it tastes amazing! Emiliana describes it as, "A clear, bright pale yellow in color, with refreshing citrus aromas of grapefruit and lime that intermingle with subtle tropical fruit aromas such as pineapple and a touch of herbs. Fresh and juicy, with citrus and tropical fruit notes on the palate, with good persistence and balance and a fruity, enjoyable finish."

The Mr. chose a 2009 Bodegas CastaƱo Monastrell (Red Wine) Yecla, Spain, an Eric Solomon European Cellars Selection. Sold for $9.99 at the event. As far as the taste, Mocanny.com describes it as follows, "A dense ruby color is followed by a sweet, pure nose of blueberries, raspberries, and chocolate, loads of fruit, medium body, sweet tannin, and a long, ripe finish."
