Wine Dinner with Joseph Carr
Oct 14 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

    Join us for an intimate wine dinner and conversation with critically acclaimed sommelier-turned-wine producer, and Cape Cod local, Joseph Carr.  The evening will feature four of his signature wines paired expertly with a locally-sourced three-course meal – and lots of spirited and “juicy” conversation! There will be a chance to win a signed magnum of wine! Featured Wine: 2014 Joseph Carr Sonoma Coast Chardonnay The wine features notes of pear, crème brûlée, peach, apricot, lime, almonds, and toffee. The palate shows a good mineral attack with a streak of wet stone, bright acidity, and excellent length and balance. The wine lingers with creaminess, pear and peach flavors on the finish. 2013 Joseph Carr Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon The wine features aromas of fig, red cherry, blackberry pie, and cocoa. A big attack of black currant flows to layers of dense tannin, chocolate, and dried fruit. Full-bodied with food-friendly acidity, flavors of nutmeg, clove, and cinnamon add complexity to the finish. 2012 Joseph Carr Rutherford Merlot The wine features notes of black cherry, black currant, mint, dark chocolate, and roast meat. On the palate, it is lush and rich, with supple tannins and fantastic length. 2012 Joseph Carr Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon The wine features notes of blackberry, cedar, tobacco, chocolate, and shiitake mushrooms. It is full bodied, with firm but supple tannins and food-friendly acidity leading to a long and complex finish. The Joseph Carr Story After a decade serving as a world-class sommelier followed by another decade as an inter­national industry executive, Joseph Carr set out on his own in 2005 to form his fami­ly-owned wine company. It was, as Joseph Carr says, “a chance to follow a dream.” Influenced by the wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, Joseph Carr embraced the French négociant model as well as a winemaking philosophy emphasizing balance, sophistication and approachability. He is an old-world style producer yet distinctly Californian, sourcing Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from select vineyards in Rutherford, Oakville and the Stags Leap District. In 2010 Carr joined forces with Aaron Pott, one of Napa’s most respected and sought-af­ter winemakers. Aaron has made wine for a host of high-scoring, cult Napa wineries like Blackbird, Quixote, Quintessa, and Seven Stones. Between the 2005 and 2013 vintages, he scored 90+ points 84 times and 93-96 points 35 times from Wine Spectator or Wine Advocate. In 2012, Food & Wine named Aaron Winemaker of the Year. Joseph Carr splits his time between Napa Valley and Cape Cod. Register on-line or call, 508-495-1878, ext. 2

Cape Cod Marathon finish line

Cape Cod Marathon finish line, just a few steps from the Palmer House Inn.

Since 1978 the Cape Cod Marathon, a Falmouth Track Club event, draws runners from around the United States and the world. The Palmer House is located just a few steps from the start and finish lines – a wonderful location for race participants or spectators.

“The Cape Cod Marathon takes its participants on a twenty-six mile loop around the town, beginning in the historic Falmouth Village Green, past the picturesque Falmouth Inner Harbor, along the breathtaking Nantucket Sound vistas of Falmouth Heights and Menauhant, across Green Pond and through the rustic wooded areas of Davisville and past Falmouth’s legendary Cranberry bogs in Hatchville. The race then turns west towards the Buzzards Bay villages of West Falmouth and Sippiwissett and south through the internationally famous scientific community of Woods Hole.

Winding through Woods Hole, the race then returns to the beaches of the Sound with a stunning turnaround, past the lighthouse and along the beaches of Surf Drive and then finally back through the downtown streets of Falmouth to finish at the Village Green. The marathon’s route gives participants a unique view of almost every section of Falmouth and its neighborhoods and people.” – Cape Cod Marathon
