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 and spirits tips with each episode.
Check, Please! Bay Area guests drank the following wines on the set of episode 805:
2010 Flying Goat Cellars, Pinot Noir, Santa Maria Valley, California ($39) -- This is a Pinot with power. Full-bodied and a touch earthy with ripe flavors of dark cherry and cocoa, it’s a wine that takes a manly approach to a typically feminine variety. Pair alongside beef dishes or hearty cheeses.
2010 Flying Goat Cellars "Goat Bubbles - Blanc de Blancs," Santa Maria Valley, California ($38) -- The label depicts a frolicking goat as a testament to winemaker Norm Yost’s “mission of merriment” with wine. This Chardonnay-based sparkler is rich and creamy yet still maintains vibrancy. Toast to the goat!
