This semi-sweet wine opens with luscious aromas of citrus and tropical fruits. The mouthfeel is juicy with bright acidity that activates the palate and displays flavors of peach, pineapple and honeysuckle. The finish is wonderfully persistent with balance of sweetness and refreshing crispness. Serve well-chilled and allow to warm in your glass for optimal enjoyment of aroma and flavor. Perfect as an aperitif or as an ideal pairing to spicy Asian dishes, seafood and rich cheeses. This wine is versatile enough for dessert pairings like fruit tarts or savory options like blue cheese creme brulee.
Gouguenheim Merlot Mendoza, Argentina

With an intense, ruby-red color and violet traces, the wine shows generous, ripe aromas of plum and cherry jam, with hints of spice. Bold and rich flavors of bitter cherries and berry fruits stand out on the palate, with good acidity, balance and velvety tannins.
This very versatile wine is perfect with many different foods, including pasta with rich meat- or mushroom-based sauces, grilled or roasted red meats, game and mature cheeses.
Kenwood Six Ridges Alexander Valley Cabernet
Wonderfully complex aromas of fig, plum, and ripe berry join subtle hints of vanilla, cocoa nibs, and cola. This wine has a full-bodied mouthfeel with complex tannins that give way to a lingering, silky finish.
Being both full-bodied and elegant, this Cabernet Sauvignon is an excellent accompaniment to richly flavored food such as Barbeque Beef Ribs, Chicken with Port and Figs, or Pan-Roasted Veal Chops with Mushrooms.

Syrah – 40%; Grenache – 40%; Cinsault – 20%

Wine World Wines Thursday March 15th 2018

Banfi Le Rime Pinot Grigio 2016
Pale straw in color, the wine offers impressive rich, ripe fruit aromas that hint of pear and white flowers. The wine is well balanced with an unusually lively acidity.
Le Rime takes its name from the lines that form on the sloping vineyard floor as water washes down the hillside, much as the ebb tide leaves its mark on the sandy beach. This Pinot Grigio catches that fresh minerality inherent to the terrain of southern Tuscany. The exclusive use of free-run juice at fermentation, followed by cool temperature fermentation and early bottling, makes the wine brilliant, vibrant, and appealingly fresh.
A splendid aperitif and a delightful complement to antipasto, pasta, and light meals.

La Crema Monterey Chardonnay 2016
On the nose, the 2016 La Crema Monterey Chardonnay shows Meyer lemon, passionfruit, grilled pineapple and pie crust. On the palate, nectarine, papaya and crisp lemon-tangerine notes are complemented by a touch of spice, complex minerality. Balanced acidity lingers on a long finish.
quickly-seared flounder accented with a toss of al dente bean sprouts, Dungeness crab or pan-sautéed petrale sole, Manchego Cheese.

François Millet Rosé 2016 Sancerre, Loire, France
The Millet family’s history in Sancerre dates back to the 1930s. This Pinot Noir-based wine, the most serious of the rosés that the family produces, is a ripe strawberry-flavored wine with a tangy, bitter-cherry edge.
Produced in tiny quantities, François rosé Sancerre offers a shiny, salmon pink colour and aromas of wild strawberries and spring blossom. The texture on the palate is very moreish, with an almost strawberries-and-cream quality. Fruit flavours are very much to the fore here with a luscious finish.
paëlla, minestrone, bouillabaisse, summer salads, barbecue

Alias Pinot Noir 2015 California
100% Pinot Noir
Dusty ruby color. Mild aromas of cherry, roasted pepper, and putty with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a brisk blood orange and whole nuts finish with papery tannins and light oak. A carefree table wine.
A rather impressive wine for the price. Sourcing from mostly the Mendecino region as well as Sonoma. This wine offers ripe and pretty pinot fruit with great balance and freshness.
This is a perfect wine to enjoy on its own, and can also pair with any chicken or pork dish, and just about anything else.

Montana Crianza 2015 Rioja,Spain
97% Tempranillo and 3% Graciano
Spice and leather complement the deep blackberry fruit and ferrous minerality of Rioja’s red soils. Mouth-filling yet fresh, with the structure for improving in the bottle for a number of years.
Roasted chicken breast stuffed with peppers, caramelized onions, and goat cheese. Herb encrusted New York Strip Steak, Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Fattoria di Lucignano Colli Fiorentini Chianti 2015 Tuscany, Italy
Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Colorino & Merlot
Medium intensity ruby red. The nose on this wine is intense, overflowing with fruity aromas of black cherry and violets. Soft and medium bodied on the palate it balances rather present tannins with moderate acidity. An ideal accompaniment to pasta dishes, medium aged cheese.

Michel Lynch Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Bordeaux, France:
Brilliant pale colour with silver glints, nose that is bursting with notes of tropical fruits, pineapple, and hints of coconut. The palate is generous and lively, revealing aromas of acacia and white peach. The finish, persistent, displays lovely aromatic complexity, a touch of minerality and a crisp freshness.
blue crab cakes, grilled cod fish and potatoes with rosemary and olive oil

Huguet Can Feixes Blanc Seleccio 2016 Penedes, Spain:
Macabeo, Chardonnay, and a touch of Malvasia de Sitges. Parellada at its best, from high-altitude, gravelly mountain soils: intense lemon-oil aroma with firm acid structure enhanced by the rare, glyceric Malvasía. Stony and aromatic, reminiscent of France’s Chablis or Rheingau. Apple, melon and apricot aromas, Flavors of melon, lime and wet stones reflect gravelly soils, and it’s steady on a long finish.
Seafood Paella, Shrimp and Spicy Sausage Salad

Banyan Gewürztraminer 2016 Arroyo Seco, Monterey, California:
Refreshing and bright with floral aromatics. This off dry Gewürztraminer is grown at Mission Ranch and Ventana Vineyards in the Arroyo Seco AVA of Monterey. Typical for that area, wind, fog, and cool temperatures predominate year round. The vineyard is carefully farmed to assure the specific ripeness, a balance of sugar and acidity, that we are looking for. A long growing season and temperatures that rarely rise above 80°F create an ideal spot for such an intensely aromatic wine.
Pad Thai, Green Curry Chicken

Franklin Tate Estates Wines Shiraz 2015 Margaret River, Australia:
Deep ruby red with a purple hue. A rich and spicy nose with dense dark cherry, blueberry and mixed red berry fruits. These are complimented by notes of Belgian waffle, milk chocolate and vanilla aged in American oak. This is a highly expressive wine with great fruit concentration driven by mixed berries and dark, juicy cherry fruit. The tannin structure is chewy, and the oak has provided a sweet, chocolatey flavour along with hints of hazelnuts and toast. White pepper lingers on the finish.
Grilled beef served rare with a green pepper sauce.

Domaine Les Pins Les Rochettes Red 2015 Bourgueil, Loire, France:
Cabernet Franc 100% Domaine les Pins has been a family-owned estate for 5 generations. They are independent winegrowers who work with traditional methods at every stage of the production. Ruby red with hints of violet. Floral with red berry fruits on the nose. Flavors of cherry, blackberry and raspberry. Long finish with round tannins. Roast Lamb or Pork, Neapolitan Style Pizza, Duck and Mushroom based dishes
91pts Wine Enthusiast – 2015 vintage – Editor’s choice

Armida Poizin Zinfandel 2014 California:
A moderate, shiny, ruby red that glistens toward cranberry. The nose is Boysenberry, blackberries, and cranberries all come forward, and are wrapped up in a spice mix. Touches of vanilla come in, as does hints of espresso, oak, and dark chocolate. The mouthfeel is soft with a hint of milk chocolate, sweet oak, and a long vanilla finish. The body is soft, and smooth, like a velvet glove. Amazing given how it pricks with the heat of the high alcohol hidden behind the veneer. Huge flavor of blackberry, cranberry, and vanilla come through. Compliments of spices, raspberries, and dried cherries add complexity.  Barbecued Ribs, Rich Spicy Chili, Eggplant Caponata
