Charles Krug Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Summer hasn’t given up the ghost just yet as evidenced by the 90’s forecast for the Metro area this weekend. But our local distributors are hurrying to clear out some of their stocks of crisp Whites and Roses so there are deals aplenty to be had right now at the shop. This week we scored a silly good deal on a lithe and playful Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc that is sure to leave you feeling refreshed no matter how high the mercury climbs. The 2016 Charles Krug St Helena Sauvignon Blanc is a picture perfect example of fine Napa Valley winemaking. It begins with delicate scents of fresh cut grass, lemon oil, and thyme crushed between your fingers. What a lovely nose it is. Swirling and sniffing yields the sort pure, sleek aromatics that are often reserved for much more expensive Whites. On the palate, the 2016 Krug delivers impressive zest and freshness without becoming edgy, tart, or acidic. Instead you’ll find a lovely mix of honeydew, pineapple, and apricot to offset more zippy notes of pink grapefruit and Meyer lemon. The finish, while still a far cry from the SB’s of the Loire Valley, displays an appealing hint of minerality that serves to keep the wine feeling food friendly and sincere. Yes, it’s a White and we know your guys dig the big Reds. But darn, this is a really tasty White and we both know that you ought to have at least a little bit of quality White in the fridge at all times.
Food Pairing:
I’ve been making this delicious chicken salad lately by chopping cooked chicken breast, red grapes, celery, green onions, cilantro, and slivered almonds then gently tossing it with a dressing made by mixing lemon juice with a great spice mix from Savory Spice Shop called Marrakech Moroccan Spice and mayonnaise. I just happened to have some made so I tried it with the Krug Sauvignon and the pairing with spot on. I love the way the wine plays up the aromatics in the spice mix and the way it cuts through the mayo in the dressing. Find a shady spot in your favorite park and pack up a picnic lunch with a bottle or three of Charles Krug in tow. Make these last few hot weekends count!

Forefront by Pine Ridge Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

During the darkest part of the economic downturn Pine Ridge created a second label called Forefront in order to help keep the lights on when their high end Estate Cabernets weren’t flying off the shelves. They’re since moved away from the second label but our local Pine Ridge supplier managed to grab a few cases of Forefront Cab from the winery before they sold out of the 2012 vintage. This Cab is legit. Barrel fermented and raised in mostly new French oak, it shows clear cut evidence of high end winemaking practice in every sip. The nose is awash with sultry scents of toasty oak, sweet vanilla, cigar box, and blackberries on the vine warmed by the mid-summer sun. The palate is rich and intense with sweet tannin providing a sturdy frame on which to hang flavors of cherry cordial, blueberry pie filling, and bittersweet blackcurrants. The finish is long and ever so slightly coarse which keeps the wine feeling like a serious, food friendly, age-worthy bottle of high-end Cabernet. We think this will be the last chance to get the 2012 Forefront Cab so grab your bottles up today because once it’s gone, it’s gone.
Food Pairing:
Pine Ridge Winery’s 2012 Forefront Cab was obviously built with food pairing in mind. There are lots of things you could serve it with successfully but, in my mind at least, it’s a classic steak wine. It has a full on Saturday night style. So you’ll want to really church it up and pair it with a great piece of meat and a couple of delicious, full flavored sides.
