Jack's Reserve Wine List

jack's reserve wine listspacerJack’s Reserve Wine List features a collection of exceptional and distinctive 90+ rated wines available
by the bottle at The Auld Dubliner Lounge at The Irish Cottage Boutique Hotel,  Frank O'Dowd's Irish Pub & Grill, One Eleven Main and Vinny Vanucchi's 'Little Italy'. The reserve list offers some of hotel owner and restaurateur Jack Coulter’s favorites and is packed with sought after, hard-to-find wines painstakingly crafted by some of the most renowned wineries from around the world.

Each wine is exceptional in flavor and crafted with care
and precision. The following are a few wines featured on Jack’s Reserve Wine List:

Krug Grande Cuvee Brut Champagne (95 pts)
This timeless and stylish multi-vintage champagne is painstakingly blended by the Krug family from as many as 50 wines and 6 to 10 different vintages. Each year the Krug family works from taste and memory alone to recreate this consistently complex and elegant champagne.

Newton “Unfiltered” Chardonnay (93 pts)
Touted by Robert Parker of The Wine Advocate as “one of the best and long-lived California Chardonnays,” Newton Vineyard crafts this wine using old-world winemaking techniques.
The wine is bottled unfiltered to preserve the natural fruit essence and to foster the wine's
unique aroma and flavor.

Opus One (90 pts)
Opus One meticulously creates this limited release hand-crafted wine during a gentle and unhurried winemaking process. The winery’s focus on just one wine is apparent in the end product, an outstanding blend of five grape varieties.

Inniskillin “Niagara Peninsula” Icewine (94 pts)
The concentrated and intense flavors of Inniskillin Icewine are created when grapes are left on the vine well into the winter months. The frozen clusters are hand-picked and pressed in the extreme cold. During pressing the water in the grape remains frozen and just a few coveted drops are harvested.
