Big House Red Central Coast, California
Big House Red is all about fragrance, spice and soft tannins. It has a fragrance of mint and garrigue, with insinuations of blackberry and the ubiquitous framboise. Not a wine that you would want to serve to the Queen, it is nevertheless a wine that is the perfect complement to barbecue, pasta, pizza and all of the major non-vegan groups.
Santa Barbara Chardonnay, California
This Santa Barbara chardonnay seems to have been produced with the aim of finesse and subtlety.
Eminently approachable and nicely balanced wine satisfies a wide variety of foods. It is a great choice for service with roast chicken, sea bass, and pasta as well as a mixed fruit and nut platter with light to mild semi hard cheeses.
Rosenblum Cellars Zinfandel Paso Robles, California
This rich, full wine exhibits the signature spicy earth tones that make Paso Robles Zinfandel so excellent. The flavors are fresh and vibrant with a depth of darker fruit developing on the back of the palate. Generous, approachable tannins guide this medium-bodied Zinfandel into a long finish. This versatile red wine will pair well with a variety of dishes from roasted poultry to grilled steaks and creamy pastas.
Estancia Pinot Noir Central Coast, California
At Estancia, they rely on the benefits of boutique style winemaking techniques. A classically styled Pinot Noir, adopting the Burgundian philosophy of handling the fruit as delicately as possible. The result is a wine which is lusciously fruity with ripe cherries layered with sweet oak, dried flowers, leather, and spice. Soft and silky with a persistent finish.
