My 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 spotlight Old World elegance. Join the club!
2005 Domaine Michel Delorme, Pouilly-Fuissé, France
Among Chardonnay lovers, Pouilly-Fuissé has cache. From grapes grown at the intersection of the small towns of Pouilly and Fuissé in southern Burgundy in France, this juicy white with mineral aromas is classically styled.
2003 Macula “Tandem,” Navarra, Spain
A hint of age mellows the tannic grip of this spicy red, which makes a lovely match for grilled lamb with roasted potatoes.
2005 Signorello Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, California
This bold Cabernet Sauvignon is the embodiment of the saying, “iron fist in a velvet glove.” With touches of Merlot and Cabernet Franc blended for complexity, this powerful yet plush wine is a keeper.
