Back In The Saddle

September 8, 2016 § 4 Comments

After a bit of a summer ending break I am back it and will have a number of posts in the coming weeks.

First will be my take on a new release wine out of the Okanagan (yeah, you want to get on this wine). Followed by some notes on tasting aged wines and then a review on a wine that you likely all remember, but have likely forgotten.

Anyway I will talk to you all soon.

Cheers

      Pat- Viognier I would go with the Cono Sur from Chile which is around $10. For Chardonnay I’m loving the Wolf Blass Yellow Label for true value and complexity ~ around $16

      As for Syrah/Shiraz, right now I am partial to Languedoc-Rousillon wines, check out either Fat Bastard, $13.99, or Gayda Three Wines at $12.

      For Chicken Picatta and red I would go with a Sangiovese/Merlot or Sangiovese/Cab blend. Everything Wine has a great option in Sono Vino. For white I would tend towards the Cono Sur Viognier or the Mission Hill 5 Vineyards Pinot Blanc, $14.

      I hope this helps.

      All the best.
