Old World Red Blends For A Month Of Love

February Marrow Magnum Mondays

February is the month of love… at Death & Taxes.

Our Marrow Magnum Monday wine selections this month are all selected from Old World vineyards. We’ve chosen classic, palatable red blends that not only pair with our marrow, but all of our delicious new menu additions as well.

On February 4th, our selection is a Tenuta Monteti, "Caburnio," Bordeaux Blend from Italy. This savory Super-Tuscan blend from the seaside winery of Tenuta Monteti is silky, smooth, and beautifully aromatic.

On February 11th, we’ll feature “Brezeme” Cote-du-Rhones, by Eric Texier.  Through all organic and minimal intervention winemaking, this cutting edge producer gives us a 100% Syrah wine from one of the top sites in the area.  It is perfectly ripe, tasting like the summer's best blackberries dusted with black pepper and licorice.

On February 18th, our choice is Château de Parenchere, Bordeaux Supérieure. This wine is an intense red, with notes of dark fruit and elegant tannins; and is an example of the versatile wines coming out of Bordeaux that are immediately intended for the dinner table.

On February 25th, we’ll end the month with Domaine Pelican, "Trois Cépages," a blend of three grapes: Pinot Noir, Trousseau & Poulsard. From France’s easterly, Jura, this selection is full of bright red fruit flavors and zippy acidity; and will bring new meaning to food versatility.

You’ll truly be feeling all the love this February, with our wide range of Old World blends. Make your Monday reservation(s) here.

People’s Cocktail February 2019

Join us on Monday, February 18th, for the return of People’s Cocktail--a competitive cocktail fundraising event at Fox Liquor Bar.

The premise is simple: each of our bartenders will make a featured drink and pick a favorite charity. You, the people, come to drink, and we will donate the proceeds of the featured cocktails to the charity picked by the bartender with the most popular drink. That’s right, every drink you order equals one vote for that bartender’s charity.

But what good is competitive cocktailing without snacks? Joining us for a good cause is guest chef Teddy Diggs. He’ll be featuring a preview menu from his upcoming restaurant, Coronato, a Roman-style pizza spot opening in Carrboro later this year. Think rosemary and sea salt foccacia, fava falafel with herbs, lemon, and yogurt, and several pizza options to choose from (with all proceeds also going to the winning charity.)

Craft cocktails, craft Roman pizza, and a charitable cause… this is an event you can’t miss. Mark your calendars and head to Fox for this night of fun and good-hearted rivalry.

Super Bowl Snacks, Prepared By Us

Regardless of which team you root for, there’s one thing we can all get behind on Super Bowl Sunday….amazing snacks.

Pre-order the ultimate party snacks from our Super Bowl catering for pick up menu; we’ll prepare everything so that all you have to do is pick them up the morning of the game.

Check out our options of Super Bowl small bites, dips, and desserts for pick up, including buffalo chicken dip, queso with house made sausage, chilies, and tomato, and classic Poole’s pimento cheese. Get ready to tackle half-time hunger with pecan smoked chicken wings plus sauce of choice, cheese plates and charcuterie boards. And a sweet way to end the game? Grab a tray of brownies or blondies (you should probably get both, to be honest). See the full menu here.

Our pickup window for food will be Sunday, February 3rd from 9am to 1pm. Fair warning, after this order, you may be stuck hosting the Super Bowl party for the rest of forever. But hey, the food will be so delicious, you won’t even mind. Place your order today!

Tasting the “Triangle Wine Experience” during January Magnum Mondays

January is already here! It’s time to start your New Year with a bang, popping bottles at Marrow Magnum Mondays at Death & Taxes.

We have partnered with Triangle Wine Experience (TWE) and its supporters to bring you our January selections. Triangle Wine Experience [insert link to website] brings lovers of food and wine together in the triangle area. They host a series of winery dinners [link to Poole’s winery reservations] every winter that lead up to a Grand Gala and Auction in support of the Frankie Lemmon Foundation and School.

On January 7th, we’ll start our month of magnums with Failla Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast from our great friends at Failla winery.  This Pinot Noir from Sonoma Coast over delivers year after year with beautifully layered ripe berry fruit, sweet spices and rose petals.  

On January 14th,  we’ll feature Blackbird Vineyards Arriviste Rosé. A glass of this sophisticated, dark-fruited rosé from our friends at Blackbird Vineyards will hit the spot with our tasty bone marrow. Who says you can enjoy rosé in the winter?

On January 21st, we are featuring a beautiful single vineyard expression of Pinot Noir from Davis Family Vineyards, Davis Family Dutton Ranch Pinot Noir.  The fruit for this wine comes from the Dutton Ranch Vineyard and has mouthwatering acidity, exotic fruit aromas and signature blueberry fruit flavor.  

On January 28th, we’ll finish off our magnum month with Jaboulet Paralelle 45 Cotes-du-Rhone by Skurnik Wines.  We’ll be featuring both the Cotes-du-Rhone and single vineyard Crozes-Hermitage from Paul Jaboulete. It’s hard to beat a juicy Grenache-based wine or a spicy Syrah with our bone marrow...

You’ll truly be drinking for a delicious experience, and a great cause, this January. Make your Monday reservation(s) here.

Last Month Of Magnum Mondays Will Leave You Sparkling…

 

It’s December, and the countdown to 2019 has officially begun on Marrow Magnum Mondays at Death & Taxes. So, what could be our featured magnums this month, you ask? An abundance of bubbles, of course! Champagne, aka the official drink of celebration, will be helping us float through the holiday season, and most importantly, assist bringing in the new year!

We’ll be pairing these bottles of bubbles with our featured embered bone marrow for an over-the-top experience:

On December 3rd, look for Laherte-Freres Ultradition Brut. This 7th generation, family-run house makes wines with distinction and personality which is exciting to taste, and a great launch to our sparkling month.  

On December 10th, we’ll be featuring two varietals of Champagne in the Brut family: the Aubry Brut  & Laurent Perrier Cuvée Le Brut.  Experience the difference between a well-established Champagne house making consistently beautiful wines, from classic varieties and an up-and-coming Champagne grower making seriously complex wines from Champagne’s forgotten varieties.

On December 17th, it’ll be a classic evening, highlighting one of the oldest Champagne houses: Lanson. This producer continues to make improvements to the quality and production of their wines creating fresh, elegant styles with loads of complexity.  Tonight the flavorful Black Label and the beautifully floral Rosé are both by the glass!

On December 24th, Christmas Eve, we’ll finish out our Magnum Monday 2018 year with grandeur! We’ll be featuring Pierre Moncuit Cuvee Moncuit-Delos Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru (can you say that five times fast?!) This wine is made from 100% Chardonnay grown in the best vineyards in Champagne. Grab a friend and treat yourself to some calm before the storm tomorrow. You deserve it!
