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.
Check, Please! Bay Area guests drank the following wines on the set of episode 702:
2009 Dreaming Tree “Crush” red blend, North Coast, California $15
A collaboration between Sonoma winemaker Steve Reeder and musician Dave Matthews, Dreaming Tree is a new label that focuses on drinkability, sustainability, and affordability. Crush is a Merlot-based red blend that's as smooth to drink as it is listening to Dave Matthews sing.
2010 Dreaming Tree Chardonnay, Central Coast, California $15
Just like Dave’s group -- where each instrument marries with the others to make the whole band work -- the toasty oak notes of this Chardonnay complement its tropical fruit flavors and racy acidity. This is a succulent white that will please just about any palate.
