Ferrari-Carano
Fumé Blanc
Sonoma County, 2018
 
 
This wine has delicious aromas and flavors of pineapple, pink grapefruit, lemongrass, lychee, peach, pear, honeydew melon, orange blossom, guava and a touch of minerality.
 
The Fumé Blanc has bright acidity and crisp freshness from the cool, stainless steel tank fermentation, while the subtle oak
character from neutral French oak barrels adds body, complexity and depth. 
 
Fumé Blanc pairs well with simple seafood and poultry dishes, and also holds up nicely with veal and pork. This wine has lively flavors that go well with spicy and ethnic cuisines such as Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese, Korean, Mexican and Southwestern dishes.

Château Léon
Rosé
Bordeaux, 2018
 
 
A half-and-half blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, this is a softly textured wine. It has some spice along with a juicy red-berry character that gives it richness and keeps everything fresh. Drink now. (Roger Voss)

Meiomi
Pinot Noir
Monterrey, Santa Barbara and Sonoma Cos., 2017
 
A rich garnet color with a ruby edge, the wine opens to reveal lifted fruit aromas of bright strawberry and jammy fruit, mocha, and vanilla, along with toasty oak notes. Expressive boysenberry, blackberry, dark cherry, juicy strawberry, and toasty mocha flavors lend complexity and depth on the palate. The well-integrated oak provides structure and depth seldom seen in Pinot Noir.
Meiomi Pinot Noir has a consistent profile of supple tannins, silky texture, and balanced acidity that makes it the perfect wine to enjoy with a wide array of food. It pairs particularly well with tomato-based pasta dishes, thin-crust pizza, grilled lamb, and turkey.
