Welcome to the latest installment of Wine Wednesdays with Adam! Each week we'll be exploring my favorite wines and what makes them stand out from the crowd. This week's wines are the ones that keep finding themselves in my glass lately.
I generally do not drink a ton of American wines—not that I have an exact reason—but I think it stems from not drinking a ton of Cabs, and that is really what California is known for. Stylistically, I like my wines to be a little “off the beaten path.” I really enjoy acidic whites (especially from Loire, France), and when it comes to reds, I like fresh fruit up front with elegance, acidity, and earth tones on the finish (think: Burgundy, France and Piedmont, Italy). Enjoy!
Medium Red Wine
This wine is full-bodied and elegant while still being very approachable. The bouquet is full and fruity with hints of crisp dried flowers, dried plum, and red fruit jam. The light spicy notes are just delicately noticed. Enjoy it with Gorgonzola Dolce, Brigante Pecorino with Truffles, or a charcuterie platter.
Medium Red Wine
This wine is well balanced and supple with an intense ruby red color. Fruity aromatics with ripe fruit notes are well blended with sweet notes of oak. Pair it with rice and pasta dishes, quiches, vegetable dishes, or red & white meat roasts.
A true taste of summer, this extremely fresh rosé has flavors of berry fruits with an ever so slight bubble. Perfect for enjoying at the beach and pairs well with most foods.
Light White Wine | Organic
A blend of 50% Chenin Blanc and 50% Chardonnay from 20 year old vines, this wine displays aromas of green orchard fruits and white flowers. On the palate, it has a sharp, broad acidity that delivers incredible freshness and helps to deliver a long, concentrated finish. Enjoy with roast chicken, seared trout, or soft cheeses.
