We were in New York City on Saturday walking through Midtown Manhattan. It was a beautiful spring late afternoon and we on our way to Central Park for a carriage ride then onto St. Patrick Cathedral for Saturday evening Mass when it happened. Yes, right there in front of me was Morrell Wine Bar & Cafe and next to that was their wine store. Talk about Divine intervention, how was I supposed to pass by without stopping in and at least making a purchase. The bottles neatly lined the shelves like soldiers at attention. I looked up and down the aisles totally conflicted as to which one would accompany me on my journey home. My wife broke my confusion with a simply suggestion “Trust your gut and just pick one , you can’t make a mistake here” and she was right as usual. I chose The Pinot Project 2010, a California product that the tasting notes described as ” Pure aromas and flavors of black cherries, kissed by oak and complimented by just the right amount of Asian spice”. The food at the Wine Bar & Cafe looked delicious, very trendy and upscale. Clients having lunch or dinner at the Wine Bar & Cafe receive 10% off their wine purchases at the Wine Store. Morrell Wine Bar & Cafe is located directly on 49th St between 5th and 6th Ave at 1 Rockefeller Plaza.
