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.

2010 Kuyen, Red Blend, Maipo Valley, Chile ($24) -- Marrying Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere in a seamless blend, this rich red captures the earthy yet fruit-driven character of Chile's best wines. The word 'kuyen' means moon in the native Mapuche language and honors the sustainable way the grapes are grown. A wine to drink now with hearty meat dishes or age for up to a decade.

2010 Holly’s Hill, Roussanne, El Dorado, California ($25) -- Roussanne is a grape variety hailing from the Rhone Valley and is a rarity in California. This is one of the best expressions outside France. Lushly styled with aromatic floral notes and nutty, ripe fruit flavors, it's a white for lovers of complexity and class.
