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. I will also share some wine tips with each episode.

2009 Rusack Chardonnay, Santa Barbara County, California $23
This sleek Chardonnay is like a well-designed automobile that glides on the road. Pristine fruit flavors are layered with restrained richness to create a balanced wine that is so easy to sip. As it says on the back label, "For more information on this product, please remove cork and pour."

2007 Dierberg Syrah, Santa Ynez Valley, California $34
Syrah is a chameleon. It can be a powerhouse fruit-driven red from Australia's Barossa Valley (dubbed Shiraz) or an earthy, taut wine from its home in the Rhone Valley of France. This stylish wine falls somewhere in the middle. Structured enough to age, it offers alluring dark-berry character and hint of smoky complexity.
