2014 Erath Pinot Noir

Light in texture, with pretty cherry and orange peel aromas and flavors playing against refreshing acidity, lingering nicely.

From the Wine Maker – “This vintage gives our easy-drinking Pinot a bolder presence: Deep jewel tones and complexity. Black cherry, juicy plum and Campari aromas meld with slight meatiness and warm yeastiness. Cherry, cranberry-raspberry and herbal flavors provide gentle sweetness, caressing the palate to a bright finish.”

Try this with Thai or Chinese pepper sauce, grilled scallops, thin crust pizza margherita, pasta with red sauce, and zesty BBQ.

2011 Murphy Goode The Fumé Sauvignon Blanc

Murphy-Goode-The-Fumé-Sauvignon-BlancThe 2011 Fumé was predominately fermented in stainless steel to retain the expression of bright citrus and tropical fruit aromatics while the balance was barrel fermented in French and American oak to increase the mouthfeel and develop lush flavors of white peach and honeydew melon. The Sémillon adds wonderful expressions of floral notes and adds nice texture.

From the winemaker – “Bright citrus and lush tropical fruit aromas. Flavors of white peach and honeydew. What’s not to love about this versatile Sauvignon Blanc, with its hint of Sémillon for floral notes and its touch of oak for that smoky, intriguing “fume” personality. From poolside aperitifs to your best friend’s wedding, from barbecued oysters on the beach to the BYOB Thai place around the corner, this go-to wine from California’s North Coast rises to every single occasion. Don’t leave home—or stay home—without it.”

This Sauvignon Blanc (“The Fumé”) pairs great with lots of food, such as shellfish and thai chicken, but it pairs just as well with you relaxing poolside.

2011 Arrogant Frog Sauvignon Blanc

Arrogant Frog is an estate-bottled wine from the Languedoc region of southern France. Like its creator, winemaker Jean-Claude Mas, (aka the Humble Vintner), this wine is proud to assert its Mediterranean origin. Generations of the Mas family have tended to vineyards and made wine in the Languedoc region, and over the years, their wines have retained vibrancy and refined charm. The wine is sealed with a dependable screw cap to preserve freshness and youthful appeal.

From the Wine Maker – “Complex and fresh with aromas of grapefruit, gooseberry and herbaceous notes and a hint of smokiness. Taste: Fruity and lively with great balance and persistence.”

Best served with shellfish, poached or grilled seafood, salads and asparagus dishes.
