2014 Cataldi Madonna Trebbiano d’Abruzzo DOC

Cataldi-Madonna-Trebbiano-dAbruzzoFounded in 1920, Cataldi Madonna has been carried forward by three generations of the family. Consisting of just over 65 acres, the estate is home to Abruzzo’s native varietal range and has been bottling its own wines since 1975. This small, family winery is located high in the plains near L’ Aquila. Founded in 1920 by Antonio Cataldi Madonna, the winery is now run by son Luigi who produces some of Abruzzo’s best reds, whites, and roses.

From the Wine Maker – “Intense, pleasing, clean and elegant aromas of acacia, hawthorn, kiwi, lemon, almond, apple, coconut and pear with agreeable crisp attack, however, well-balanced, intense flavors with persistent finish with good flavors of lemon, pear and apple.”

Great everyday wine, pairs well with fish and white meats.

2013 Cakebread Cellars Sauvignon Blanc

Cakebread-Cellars-Sauvignon-BlancWe source Sauvignon Blanc grapes from throughout Napa Valley,  with over a third of the total coming from our estate vineyards in Rutherford, Calistoga,  Carneros and southeastern Napa.  The wonderful  fruit from these sites enables us to produce a full-bodied, crisp and complex  Sauvignon Blanc boasting distinctive varietal character and a delectably zestiness.   In 2012, a superb white wine vintage in  Napa Valley, we blended 87% Sauvignon Blanc with 9% Semillon (to enrich the wine’s  mid-palate and soften its acidity) and 4% Sauvignon Musqué, an aromatic clone of Sauvignon Blanc that adds a  bright, floral note to the bouquet.

From the Wine Maker – “Because of the stability of our grape sources and constancy of our winemaking regimen, our sauvignon blanc displays a consistent style from year to year. The 2013 vintage boasts characteristically fresh, pure and complex white grapefruit, guava, green apple, honeydew melon and mineral aromas. It’s concentrated; guava, gooseberry and melon flavors persist into a long, lively finish boasting bright citrus, light spice and mouth-watering mineral tones. Enjoy this beauty over the next 3-5 years with your favorite salad, seafood, poultry and veggie dishes.”

A perfect oyster wine, this Sauvignon Blanc is also delicious with many vegetarian dishes. Cheeses such as chevre and other fresh cheeses, Brie and other semi-soft cheeses, Swiss, Gouda and other mild, firm cheeses.
