Mud Pie, Sauvignon Blanc, Mendocino County, 2012
Crisp and refreshing with lots of lime, tangerine, tropical fruit and grapefruit, framed by a touch of minerality. Good balance allows the bright fruit to show up in the front and then the finish sharp and precise. Perfect when given a slight chill and enjoyed with clams-on-a-half-shell, Thai dishes, sushi and chicken recipes with cream sauces.

Brancaia, “Tre” Rosso Toscana IGT, Tuscany, 2010
“The 2010 Tre is laced with dark red berries, flowers, licorice and a hint of smoke. This is a decidedly medium-bodied wine built on length and energy rather than the richness for which Maremma generally is known. Floral notes reappear on the finish, adding lift and a sense of harmony. The 2010 is 80% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.”
– 89 Points, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

Chateau Bellevue D’Espy, Bordeaux, 2010
A beautiful purple color, the wine is exceptionally clear and intense in color. The aromas are bountiful with fresh black and red fruit.

Works well with lamb, veal, pork and sushi grade tuna just pan seared and served with wasabi infused mashed potatoes.
