leslie sbroccoMy name is Leslie Sbrocco and I'm the host of Check, Please! Bay Area. Each week, I will be sharing my tasting notes about the wine the guests and I drank on set during the taping of the show.

Wines of the Week: KQED Wine Club
Our guests enjoyed these two delicious offerings from the KQED Wine Club. Tonight's wines take you from California to Australia with ease. Join the club!

2005 Donati Family Vineyard Chardonnay, Monterey, California
This richly-styled Chardonnay with toasty oak notes doesn’t sacrifice freshness for full-bodied flair. Partner with lobster, scallops, creamy cheeses, and roast chicken.

2005 Henschke “Henry's Seven” Barossa, Australia
This is a terrific wine that showcases one of the best producers Down Under. Henschke is famous for crafting world-class Shiraz and this easy drinker is a blend of Shiraz, Grenache, and a dash of the white grape, Viognier. A fruit-bomb red that sports sass, it has enough complexity to put a smile on any wine lover’s face.

Special Wine
2004 Baldacci Family Vineyards, Stags Leap District, Napa Valley, California
From a family-owned operation in Napa comes a balanced, juicy wine with dark berry fruit flavors that offers compelling complexity.
