Wines We Love with Our Food
Foxen Ernesto Wickenden Vineyard Chenin Blanc, Sta. Maria Valley, CA 2012
This 3-acre vineyard in the heart of the Santa Maria Bench was planted 43 years ago, and was named after Dick Doré‟s great uncle, Ernesto Wickenden. The wine is bright and lively, and displays notes of citrus, pear and melon, with a long, clean “minerally” finish.
Massican Annia Ribolla/Tocai/Chardonnay, Napa Valley, California 2012
Headed by Dan Petroski, assistant winemaker at Larkmead Vineyards, the 2012 Annia finds a very Italian profile in the soils of Napa Valley. Well defined with great acidity and focused fruit. In a blind tasting, you would easily believe these to be one of the best wines from Friuli or Alto-Adige. If you're a lover of Italian whites, this is a wine you must try.
Sanglier Blanc du Tusque Viog./Mars./Rous., Sonoma County, California 2012
The developing nose is clean and youthful with aromas of stone and tropical fruits and ripe melon. Floral notes, along with apple cider and cotton candy, compliment the rich core of fruit. On the palate are flavors of stone and tropical fruits, white flowers and a touch of vanilla.
Château Lassègue Bordeaux Blend Grand Cru, Saint-Emilion, France 2006
The 2006 vintage is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon and has a beautiful fruit nose that‟s clean and fresh. In the mouth, the remarkable balance gives a fairly rare sensation of harmony. It is firm, but not dry, and the tannins indicate good aging potential.
Lucente, by Luce della Vite, Sangiovese/Merlot Blend, Toscana, Italy 2011
Intense purple-red colour. The bouquet is fragrance rich, with scents of ripe fruit among which are Vignola cherry, raspberry and currant. Pleasantly fresh notes of eucalyptus and mint are accompanied by aromas of rosemary and sage. Sweet notes of coffee and toasted hazelnut accentuate the complexity of the wine. The palate is well-rounded and velvety with a very fine and silky tannin texture, nicely integrated and balanced with the alcohol component. Subtle hints of almond linger in the background.
Penfolds Bin 9 Cabernet Sauvignon, South Australia 2012
Good depth of color with a dark core and crimson edges. On the nose, dark fruits including blackcurrant, savoury green olive and roasted red peppers, tomato leaf and oregano. Mixed spice, cedar and rosewood notes derived from oak. Tightly structured and focused on the palate. Grainy and savoury tannin profile. Structured by classy French and American oak. Decanting will bring out more expressive notes.
