With the autumnal equinox but a few days away we begin transitioning to wines for service on our still warm days with cooler evenings. Actually, this Saturday’s selection is suitable for year round use considering the medium bodied, fruit forward character of the wines. Still, we have to gravitate to the bigger and richer reds as you will experience with the Cabernet and the Zinfandel.
2014 Simi Sauvignon Blanc, Sonoma County
List price 12.00; Our price 9.99
This wine begins with fresh, appealing citrus notes of lime zest, pink grapefruit, and fresh lemon grass followed by green papaya, passion fruit, and green apple. Wet stone adds a mineral component to the aromatics. The wine is fresh, bright, and crisp. Lively and forward on the palate, it has zesty notes of lime and grapefruit. Try this refreshing wine with goat cheese pastas with tomato sauce, crab dishes, mussels or smoked salmon.
2014 Simi Chardonnay, Sonoma County
List price 14.00; Our price 11.99
This Chardonnay shows a balanced concentration of fruit, pear, almond, lemon, spice and floral aromas enhanced by vanilla and oak flavors that carry through to a long finish. It will go well with spicy seafood or chicken dishes in red or white sauce.
2014 B.R. Cohn Chardonnay Russian River Valley
List price 20.00; Our price 15.99
Offers aromas of pear, apple, and citrus surrounded by toasty French oak and crisp acidity with flavors of green apple and lemon. Enjoy it on its own, or pair it with your favorite grilled seafood or poultry.
2013 Geyser Peak Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley
List price 24.00; Our price 19.99
The wine shows tart cherry, raspberry, juniper and toasted brioche on the nose. It is elegant with light to medium weight, toasty aftertaste and juicy acidity. There are flavors of dates and custard, with varietal austerity and a silky texture. Tasting Panel Magazine rated the wine 93-points: "High-toned blue fruit and floral are than decorative accents to this plumy, easy sipper. Earth, soy and pomegranate are intricately introduced while white pepper barely surfaces. An upsurge of pretty red fruit and tropical flowers add exotic elements. Publisher's Pick"
2014 B.R. Cohn Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma County
List price 25.00; Our price 19.99
The Silver Label Cabernet Sauvignon reflects a blending of grapes grown from the B.R. Cohn Olive Hill Estate Vineyard in the Valley of the Moon and select North Coast vineyards. This combination offers full, rich flavors of berry, cassis and black cherry with hints of vanilla in the background.
2013 Ridge Zinfandel, East Bench, Dry Creek Valley
List price 30.00; Our price 26.99
This is another wonderfully complex wine from Ridge. It is solidly fruity but never all that effusive and edging slightly to dryness in character. The East Bench bottling shows the Ridge touch with regard to careful balance and structure yet holds little back as far as full ripeness is concerned. Its mix of dark berries and faintly peppery spice holds nicely through to an extended, mildly tannic finish.
