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. I will also share some wine tips with each episode.
2009 Alamos Chardonnay
Mendoza, Argentina $9
A well-known name in Argentina, Alamos is known for their quality paired with quaffability and affordability. This easy-drinking white is smooth and fruity with a kiss of spiciness.
2007 Benziger Cabernet
Sauvignon, Sonoma County, California $18
The Benziger family is one of the leaders in sustainable viticulture, and their Cab sports classic red berry notes supported by a supple but structured frame.
