"Daniel's Birthday Picks"

Week of January 24th, 2017

White Wines

  • This is a delicious, dry, non-vintage Italian sparkling wine produced with grapes from the heart of Prosecco country: Valdobbiadene. The color is brilliant straw-yellow, enlivened by its strands of tiny bubbles. The aromas are fresh and rich, with notes of apple and pear and a hint of citrus fading into the floral bouquet. The mouth is soft yet dry, thanks to its good acidity. The perfect aperitif, or a good complement to the “Baked Clams” recipe from our Wines by Jennifer® Cookbook!
  • The premium fruit for this Australian Sauvignon Blanc was strictly harvested in the cool hours of the Eden Valley night to maintain freshness. It is best consumed fresh to fully appreciate the varietal flavors, though aging will add some complexity. It is straw colored with lemon hints, and has an herbaceous display of asparagus, gooseberry and grapefruit. The palate shows some rich, creamy texture with a crisp sorbet finish, very clean and flinty. This non-oaked wine goes perfectly with seafood, salads and spicy Asian cuisine.

Red Wines

  • This Pinot Noir comes from carefully chosen spots throughout California where growing conditions contribute to optimum hang time. The longer the time on the vine, the more concentrated the fruit character, resulting in wines of distinctive, delicious varietal expression. This is a wine of vivid red fruit with hints of spice, a lithe texture, and graceful length on the palate.
  • This Cotes du Rhone-Villages blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah is delicious. It really shows the ripeness of the vintage, with a wide, almost exotic range of crushed blueberry, boysenberry and blackberry fruit, liberally layered with graphite, woodspice and tobacco notes. The long, racy finish is filled with graphite and licorice. Drink now through 2019.
  • Aged for 12 months in all French oak barrels, this Lodi, California Merlot produces aromas of rich, ripe cherries and blackberries, with hints of toast and vanilla which coalesce into a single sensation of olfactory bliss. The mouth is filled with an array of flavors, including cherry, plum, cranapple, sweet raspberries and strawberries, with lingering hints of cocoa and cinnamon, while supple tannins leave a pleasing finish.
  • The Lodi region boasts the largest number of Zinfandel plantings of any viticultural region, with almost 40% of California’s 52,000+ acres of Zinfandel planted here. Vines as old as 100 years of age from these vineyards produce grapes of serious complexity and intensity. Luscious ripe blackberry, rhubarb, and black cherry aromas carry through to the palate, with toasty vanilla notes appearing on the finish from the 10 months spent in American oak. A small dose of Petite Sirah adds intensity and rich tannic structure to the ripe, jammy Zinfandel fruit.
