2009 Yalumba Pinot Grigio Y Series

A clean nose of dried apricots with the usual pinot grigio floral notes and even some fresh herbs. Palette displays a mineral crunch and a nice apricot finish. High quality in its price bracket.

From the Wine Maker – “The Y Series Pinot Grigio is a refreshing wine displaying aromas of pear and custard apple with a fine acidity, balanced by layers of lemon curd and a hint of marzipan. A light bodied wine, it has a slightly mealy texture that adds to the mouth-watering and lingering finish.”

This wine is excellent with pasta in light wine sauce like lemon-flavored olive oil or spicy Asian noodles. It also goes well with caesar or green salads with light to medium dressings.

Beringer Sparkling White Zinfandel

White Zinfandel makes a great sparkler—its color is beautiful, and it has bright fruit flavors that are enlivened even more by the bubbles.

From the winemaker – “The nose has lovely floral notes that are reminiscent of the wonderfully refreshing Spumante’s of Italy, with citrus and strawberry fruit nuances. The palate begins with a nice, classic “mousse” mouthfeel, and strawberry, brown spice and citrus flavors interplay with a refreshing acidity that carries everything into a long, delicious finish.”

Serves well with medium bodied grilled fish or fish prepared in light to medium or rich and hearty sauces like swordfish, halibut, or mahi mahi. Fruits like strawberries, cherries, bananas, tropical
style fruits and melons.

2009 St. Clement Sauvignon Blanc

The fruit for this wine came from vineyards in St. Helena and Oakville, both of which produce intensely flavored Sauvignon Blanc. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks at very cold temperatures and stabilized so that it did not undergo malolactic fermentation to retain the year’s bright acidity and minerality.

From the Wine Maker – “This Sauvignon Blanc begins with Red Delicious apple aromas followed by cantaloupe, custard and white flowers. The palate bursts with citrus and is crisp with medium acidity with lingering notes of pineapple, pink grapefruit and white confectionary flavors.”

Great with lobster, crab, shrimp, spicy or cajun flavored shrimp, scallops with light to medium sauces. Cobb, chef, pasta, shrimp, lemon-herb and Caesar salads.

2009 Ruca Malen Yauquen Chardonnay

This Chardonnay is forward in style, with lightly toasty, creamy aromas that accent baseline apple and tropical fruit scents. This wine exposes a citrus corner that balances its tropical fruit. A hint of fresh herbs and minerals articulate a well-balanced delicious wine.

From the Wine Maker – “Yellow with bright green hues. In the nose it shows, floral notes, pears and pineapple. In the mouth it is fresh and sweet, with a very well-balanced acidity. Persistent and aromatic after taste.”

Best with grilled or sautéed pork chops, pork tenderloin, grilled or sautéed veal, veal marsala, scaloppini or roasted veal. Cream style cheeses like cottage, cream cheese, or fromage blanc, mozzarella, semi-hard cheeses like mild Cheddar, Fontina, Jarlsberg, Swiss or Gouda, soft rind cheeses like Brie.

From the Wine Maker – “Our Meritage is deep ruby-red in the glass, with aromas of black currant and cassis. This seductive wine is lusciously textured with a myriad of black and purple fruit delivering a smooth, elegant finish.”

Pairs well with meats such as roast beef, steak, steak prepared with dark and hearty sauces or red wine sauces, beef stew, short ribs, and Beef Wellington or hard nutty cheeses like Parmeggiano Reggiano, Asiago, Manchego, Cheddar, Edam, Swiss and Gouda.

2009 Château Les Grands Marechaux Premières Côtes de Blaye

Chateau-Les-Grands-Marechaux-Bordeaux90 Pts Robert Parker – The Wine Advocate “An absolutely outrageous sleeper of the vintage, the tiny yields of 26 hectoliters per hectare produced wine made from a blend of 84% Merlot and the rest the two Cabernets. Natural alcohol is a whopping 14.5%, and it will come as no surprise that Stephane Derenoncourt is the consultant. Deep plum/ruby, with a big, sweet kiss of mulberry, black cherry jam, licorice and incense, this ripe, fleshy, medium to full-bodied wine has terrific fruit on the attack, mid-palate and finish. This unctuous 2009, which often gets a recommendation from me, is the best Les Grands Marechaux I have ever tasted.”

From the Wine Maker – “The 2009 Bordeaux presented flavors of black jam confiture, cola and licorice and velvety mouthfeel. This small production red (2500 cases produced) is aged in 20% new oak and the grapes are hand-picked. Owned by Guillaume Touton, who has been importing Bordeaux into the United States for over 30 years, the Les Grands Marechaux estate has sandy clay soils in the appellation of Blaye Cotes de Bordeaux.”

Great with rack or leg of lamb, roast pork, or tenderloin. Also try with Parmigiano, Romano and other hard cheeses as well as cheddar and other savory, firm cheeses.
