Rodney Strong Sauvignon Blanc, Charlotte’s Home, Sonoma County 2016
Sauvignon Blanc has a wide range of expressions, from the lean citrus- and mineral-driven styles of The Loire Valley in France to the jalapeno- and guava-dominant style from New Zealand. This interpretation from Rodney Strong Winery is sourced from three locations in Sonoma and somewhere in the middle with zesty notes of grapefruit combined with flavors of honeydew and tropical fruit. Available at retail locations for $12-$14.
Ménage à Trois Silk Soft Red Blend, California
Red wine can polarize people. Some prefer lighter reds like Pinot Noir, while others prefer bolder reds made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. The Silk Soft Red Blend by Ménage à Trois splits the difference. It’s a blend of Pinot Noir, Malbec and Petite Sirah, and the name accurately describes this smooth, textured wine with succulent cherry and ripe raspberry flavors accented by hints of rose petals and toasty spice. Available at retail locations for $10-$12.
