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.

Vilarnau Rose Cava, Catalunya, Spain $18
Made with the unique Spanish grape variety, trepat, this fruit-driven, dry-styled pink bubbly hails from the northeastern corner of Spain. With an affordable price tag, it's a sipper that foils fiery fare with a refreshingly zesty quality.

2009 Groth Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville, Napa Valley $50
For over 30 years the Groth family has been crafting stellar wines and this Cab shows why -- it's smooth, rich and satisfyingly delicious. Ready to enjoy now with decanting, it will improve for years to come. Pair with filet mignon for a classic match up.
