This Lodi California balanced Petite Sirah showed up well when presented. A lovely fruit forward taste with a balance of acidity, tannins and sweet blueberries. Light Oak taste that reminded me of the wooded areas of California. Nice flavored wine selection.

Made from a nicely balanced blend of Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc, 2017 Paperbark White Blend is pale straw with green hues in the glass, sharing aromas of citrus, lemon grass and papaya. The fruit continues to the palate, which has a refreshing lemon acidity.

Very bright with a balanced minerality on the palate, this medium-bodied white from Côtes de Gascogne, France has ripe fruity notes of grapefruit, citrus, peach, and lemon. Behind the fruit and minerality there’s a well-placed note of cilantro and a touch of golden raisin. After a year or two of aging, this wine will get even better.

This unassuming Riesling offers a bounty of juicy, fruity enjoyment calibrated with hints of minerality and revitalizing freshness. Its semidry tangerine and apricot flavors are easygoing yet zesty, slicked in honey and a touch of graphite. The finish is brisk but clean

Bell & James Zinfandel 2016

This understated and easy-drinking red wine captures your attention immediately with aromas of sweet red berries and licorice. On the palate, gentle tannins let the delicate fruit flavors shine through. 2017 James & Bell Zinfandel is wonderful with flavorful meats, especially grilled and barbecued dishes, so keep this wine on hand for the next time you fire up the charcoal.

Sicily's premier grape Nero d'Avola is like Cabernet Sauvignon to California--the two go hand in hand. Nero d'Avola's bold flavors contrast the non-vintage wine's light red profile. Villa Amoroso's vibrant version offers flavors of blackberry, plum, sweet spice, and smoke, with a sultry finish. This is a wine for food lovers, especially beef dishes like stews, burgers, and even meatloaf.

This Côtes de Provence Rosé from Bernard Magrez pleases with a light, succulent nose and fresh palate. Expressing the elegant and fine terroir, this blend of Mediterranean Grenache, Syrah, and Cinsault grapes is most refreshing when served chilled.
