Whether you know it by the name Pressac, Côt, Auxerrois, Balouzet, Cahors, or any of its 30 plus synonyms, today we celebrate the thin-skinned, sun-loving, purple grape variety with an inky dark color and robust tannins which most red wine drinkers call Malbec. Cheers! Salud! Santé! To #Malbec! (RD)

Rueda is a tart, lively white wine from the Verdejo grape. I find it to be one of the best values in white wine today. It is my go-to Sauvignon Blanc alternative.

GENTIL “HUGEL” 2011
AOC Alsace  (France) 

There is an ancient tradition in #Alsace that wines blended with the noble grape varieties were called “Gentil” (meaning a blend of nobles grapes).  That tradition was successfully revived in 1992 with #Gentil Hugel. 

Delicate aromas of pear and stone fruits, cardamom, licorice with floral undertones. Dry on the palate with a rich, round mouthfeel, and balancing bright acidity.  This elegant white blend pairs well with a wide variety of foods, such as tapas, mild cheeses, assorted charcuterie, or light appetizers; sushi, seafood, ham and poultry on herbal sauces, Paellas, and spicy Indian and Mexican dishes. 

Our pairing:  Pan-Seared Cilantro-Ginger Chicken Breast with Oven-Baked Parsley Potatoes. #Delicious! (RD)


Grapes:
Gewurztraminer : 11%
Muscat : 7%
Pinot gris : 18%
Riesling : 16%
Sylvaner & Pinot Blanc : 48%
