What I’m drinking
My latest Wine Club arrived this week and I wanted to give you a peek of what the selection is this month. There are three reds and three whites:
2015 Middle Jane Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley, Oregon – concentrated layered notes of wild strawberry and black cherry with a hint of coffee bean.
2016 Rufus Blanco from Penalvo do Castillo, Portugal – layered aromatics of yellow fruit, spice, vanilla and distinct salinity leap from the glass and continue on a juicy palate before finish marked by bright acidity.
2017 Dove Hunt Dog Chardonnay from Mendocino County, California – yellow apple, pear and a hint of fresh vanilla balanced by mouth-watering acidity on a textured but light-bodied frame. Pair with roast chicken, light pasta and your patio.
2016 Horse & Plow Draft Horse White Blend from Napa Valley, California – mouth-coating but juicy and fresh with aromas of apricot and white flowers and flavors of lemon and white peach.
2016 Middle Jane Zinfandel from Napa Valley, California – deeply colored with boysenberry, cherry and a hint of clove on the nose followed by ripe, smoothly-textured flavors of blackberry jam, plum and sweet spice. Pairs with barbecue, pizza and Gouda cheese.
2015 Chateau Juvenal Jolie from Ventoux, France – Lush, heady and exuberant with red and black fruits, spices, and floral components. This is fresh and balanced yet deep and rich.
I love the wine club option so I can try different clean-crafted wines from all over the world. And it gets delivered to me so it’s super convenient!
