Pine Ridge Vineyards Chenin Blanc Viognier 2019

Pine Ridge Winery was purpose built in Stags Leap with the goal of crafting super premium California wines and the success they have enjoyed is a testament to that vision. Their Chenin Blanc and Viognier blend has become a modern day classic delivering the most wonderfully fresh and zesty fruit accented by a delicate kiss of sweetness. Everyone loves this wine. The nose bursts. The palate pops. The finish flys. It is the sort of wine that you never have enough of because the bottles go dry before you know it. Freshly zested pink grapefruit mingles with magnolia blossoms and passion fruit puree to create a lovely nose that lures you in for a sip. The palate has a kiss of sweetness but only a kiss and, believe me, you want that touch of sugar on the finish because otherwise this White would be hurtfully crisp. Instead, drinking it is an experience similar to biting into a perfectly fresh piece of fruit picked at the peak of ripeness. It bursts with flavor offering buoyant layers of honeydew melon, Meyer lemon, kiwi, and pineapple. The finish is completely zippy and alive. Every sip encourages you to have another, building a real sense of momentum with each passing swirl and sniff and sip. The 2019 Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc + Viognier is a perfect aperitif but it’s so versatile as a food pairing White that you are sure to find innumerable uses for it from spinach and mushroom quiche at brunch right on through your favoriteThai takeout for dinner.
Food Pairing:
The 2019 Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc + Viognier is a seriously versatile White wine. Every facet of it’s personality was crafted to create a sensation of levity and freshness. It is the sort of wine that sits humbly beneath your food making it taste better than it could on its own. It is magnificent with brunch whether it’s simple bacon and eggs or a fancy homemade quiche. As good as it is with brunch, it’s even better with dinner. Try it with a frisee salad tossed with a light raspberry vinaigrette and a perfect portion of poached salmon. Or go all the way and order Chinese takeout because there simply is no better wine to pair with some freaking Kung Pao Chicken than Pine Ridge!

Cantine Paradiso Sant’ Andrea Primitivo 2019

Southern Italian wine is all about fun. This week’s special is a fantastic 90 Point Primitivo from the “heel of the boot” in Puglia. Primitivo shares a lot of genetic material with Zinfandel and that comparison feels quite apt when you get a big glass of the 2019 Sant’ Andrea from Cantine Paradiso. The nose requires no coaxing to give up fabulous scents of cherry hard candies, fresh plucked rose petals, cedar, and cinnamon. Swirl it all around and it just keeps on going, delivering more and more engaging aromatics with each passing moment. Sip it and delight in the exuberantly ripe fruit that you only get in a warm climate like Puglia. Bountiful flavors of cherry pie filling, raspberry preserves, and kirsch liqueur are neatly accented by stylish hints of cracked pepper, Ceylon cinnamon, dry cedar, and warm graham cracker pie crust. The palate has big volume and plenty of intensity of ripe fruit but it’s still a really classic Old World Red. The finish is dry and shows nice earth and spice. It’s fruity, that’s for sure, but it’s not that sneaky sweet junk that you all too often see coming out of California. This is the real stuff! Pair this beauty up with a piece of homemade pizza and you’ll think you’ve died and gone to heaven!
Food Pairing:
We often think of Chianti when we’re looking for a pairing for pasta with red sauce, pizza, or lasagna. Chianti is nice and all but it’s not the best fit for those dishes because Sangiovese is too high in acidity which makes it fight with the acidity in the tomatoes. What you really want for pairing with red sauce is something juicy, ripe, and peppery like this week’s special, the Primitivo “Sant’ Andrea” from Cantine Paradiso. You can certainly sip this one alone and delight in all that juicy berry fruit but it’s most at home served in a jelly jar alongside a slice of your favorite to-go pizza a little Greek side salad.
