J. Lohr Los Osos MerlotThe 2016 J. Lohr Estates Los Osos Merlot has a medium-dark color intensity with a mature red hue in the glass. Varietal aromas of black cherry and lilac are integrated with a barrel signature of toasted hazelnut, dark chocolate, and baking spice. We use whole berry fermentation and a generous amount of Malbec in this blend to accentuate bright fruit tones and provide a rich, lengthy finish. Food Pairing: Delicious with summer grilled sausages or herb-roasted chicken.
Chateau du Mourre du Tendre Côtes du Rhône Villages Vieilles Vignes 2012This aged, old vine cuvee is full-bodied, deep and pure with an endearing rusticity. Drinks more like a Baby Châteauneuf!
Talley Vineyards Estate ChardonnayPale gold in appearance, the 2015 Estate Chardonnay offers aromas of cantaloupe, yellow apple skin, and a hint of toasted bread crumbs. The palate is juicy and bright. Notes of peach nectar, stone fruit pith, wet river rock, and lemon curd lead to a refreshing and slightly toasty finish. Food Pairing: Try pairing this chardonnay with black cod and truffled cauliflower or lemony grilled chicken and spinach.
La Rioja Alta Viña Alberdi Rioja Reserva 2010Deep, ripe cherry red, with a clean, bright pink rim. Expansive nose, with dominating ripe red fruit, currants and liquorice, rounded off with sweet notes of vanilla, caramel, jam and spices. The wine is particularly well-balanced, with a smooth, elegant entry, medium body and sweet, tasty tannins. Ripe fruit, herbs, vanilla and caramel come together to mark a pleasant, agreeable finish. Pairing: Viña Alberdi stand out for its food-pairing versatility. As a result, it is an ideal companion to appetisers, snacks and barbecues, perfect with rice, pasta and creams, and great with lightly-grilled meat and fish.
