Wine tasting notes and food pairings from right to left:

Anko Malbec 2013

“Stalky, briary raspberry aromas set up a tannic palate with more burnt bitterness than bright fruit flavors. Tart plum and red currant notes are leafy and peppery, with heat and burn.” – Wine Enthusiast Magazine

Region/Appellation: Cafayate – Calchaqui Valley
Country Hierarchy: Argentina
Grape/Blend: Malbec
Food Suggestion: Beef and Venison

Cune Rioja Crianza 2012

“Bright cherry colour with some violet nuances. In the nose, red berries aromas remain over the oaky and balsamic notes from its ageing in wood. It shows an elegance in the mouth, yet very lively, with some spice back notes and a very balanced acidity.” – The Winery

Region/Appellation: Rioja Alta
Country Hierarchy: Rioja, Spain
Grape/Blend: Rioja Red Blend
Food Suggestion: Lamb

Anton Bauer Pinot Noir Wagram 2014

“Pure notes of red fruits reach the nose: Morello cherry and mulberry harmonize beautifully. Their purity pervades a palate that has the lightest touch: there is something authentic, beautiful and unforced about this. There is a suggestion, too, of herb, moss or undergrowth. This unpretentious winemaking style lets this pure, glorious fruit speak for itself and brings with it a profound sense of honest depth, bountiful earth and full-fruited balance.” –  Wine Enthusiast Magazine

Region/Appellation: Wagram
Country Hierarchy: Austria
Grape/Blend: Zweigelt
Food Suggestion: Pork

 Murrieta’s Well The Whip White Blend 2014

“The Whip 2014 is an elegant and balanced wine, fruit driven with a hint of toasty oak. While this is a Chardonnay and Semillon led style, each grape varietal has a purpose in our blend that I hand select to add elements like structure, texture, floral notes, and acidity. This unique wine showcases juicy fruit flavors of white peach, pear and melon with bright acidity and a touch of sweetness that creates a smooth and creamy finish.” – The Winery

Region/Appellation: Livermore Valley
Country Hierarchy: San Francisco, California
Grape/Blend: Rare White Blend
Food Suggestion: Seafood and Chicken

Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc + Viognier 2015

“The newest release of our intriguing blend delights the nose with a charming bouquet of enticing aromas of fresh Meyer lemon, fuzzy peach, ripe honeydew melon and yellow plum, mingled with touches of citrus blossom and white tea. The clean, vibrant palate enters with juicy pomelo, sweet lychee and honeyed tangerine fruits, balanced by vibrant acidity and hints of yellow apple and key lime pie that last through the crisp and refreshing finish.” – The Winery

Region/Appellation: Napa Valley
Country Hierarchy: Napa Country, North Coast, California
Grape/Blend: Rare White Blend
Food Suggestion: Light Salads and Seafood
