Cabernet Sauvignon, Chateau Ste. Michelle (Washington State)
The aromas offer notes of boysenberry, herb and barrel spices, with the Syrah blended in showing itself. The blue and black fruit flavors are lush and fruit forward, with soft tannins, a silky mouthfeel and a sustained sense of balance. It drinks best at a cool 62 degrees
Fumé Blanc, Robert Mondavi Winery (Napa Valley)
The zesty lemon, lime and orange citrus, fragrant peach, and fresh pineapple fruit of our 2014 Fumé Blanc are mouthwatering delicious, with lemon-lime blossom and minerality further tantalizing the palate, on a wine that is both silky in texture and refreshingly focused.
Chardonnay, Tapiz Alta (Argentina)
Amber color with green hues. Citrus aromas on the nose, plus notes of pear and apple with a hint of mineral. The French oak adds well integrated notes of vanilla and caramel. The palate is intense, creamy, with a balanced acidity.
Chianti Classico Riserva La Selvanella, Fattorie Melini (Italy)
Clear, dark, ruby color; full, complex bouquet with strong notes of red fruits, irises, and hints of vanilla. The flavor is full, generous, warm and savory with an elegant aftertaste of woodland undergrowth and toasted almonds. It can be kept longer than usual, and improves with time.
