Rosenblum Cellars “Stark Raving White” Chardonnay Blend, Sonoma California (suggested retail $12.99)  Hailing from Sonoma California comes Stark Raving White, a Chardonnay based blend produced by Rosenblum Cellars. It’s founder Kent Rosenblum, a major wine player in California, brought California Zinfandel’s into the spotlight. This wine is buttery, with a touch of vanilla,  and a note of cinnamon. It is a vibrant style of wine; it is very fruit forward. It has a slight woodiness near the finish, giving the wine a robust body. Pairs well with: spicy foods, Mediterranean flavors, and pastas.

Benton Lane Pinot Blanc, Willamette Valley Oregon  (suggested retail $18.99)  Exhibiting complex aromas of honeysuckle, butterscotch and baking spices; this Pinot Blanc is medium bodied, with a light creamy texture carrying a hint of meringue with tamarind and ripe pear flavors. Try it with Baked Chicken, or a milder fish, such as tilapia.

Rio Madre Rioja, 100% Graciano, Rioja Spain  (suggested retail $10.99) Graciano is a Rioja grape which adds so much to the Rioja blend: great color, good acidity, wonderful blue/purple fruited lively fruit. Rarely is it bottled as a single varietal wine, but on the rare occasion that it is, it is worth checking out. Enjoy this delicious, bright, blue fruited, slightly spicy wine with anything from steak frites to roasted chicken, or simply with a light dinner of Spanish tapas such as tortilla, chorizo al vino or sauteed mushrooms with garlic.

Mountain Door Malbec, Argentina (suggested retail $12.99)   This wine is dark red with violet hues. On the nose it exhibits fruity notes of morello cherries and raspberries, combined with hints of vanilla.  On the palate it displays a plush core of plum, raspberry, and cherries.  This wine is soft, with great balance in the palate and round tannins. The finish is persistent and harmonious. Mountain Door Malbec is excellent with a variety of foods, including grilled steak, baked pork loin, or wild salmon.

Robert Mondavi “Solaire” Cabernet Sauvignon, Paso Robles California   (suggested retail $14.99)   A Bordeaux blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Syrah, 3% Malbec, 2% Merlot and 2% Petite Verdot. Solaire by Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon highlights an excellent blend of Paso Robles, Monterey County, and San Benito County fruit. This full-bodied wine displays aromas and flavors of blackberry, cassis, and plum, supported by ripe tannins and integrated, sweet vanilla oak. This wine has beautiful elegance. It's soft and approachable now, and will further improve with careful cellaring for eight to 10 years. This wine will hold up to something as sophisticated as a lamb crown roast, or as simple as a burger from the grill.

Cline “Cool Climate Syrah, Sonoma California  (suggested retail $17.99)  Long associated with the northern Rhône Valley of France, Syrah has been used for centuries to produce some of the world’s finest wines. This Cool Climate Syrah is no exception. Primarily from their Lazy C ranch in the Sonoma Coast appellation, the growing season is extended, maximizing intensity of color and cool-climate flavors of fresh blueberries and black pepper. The wine’s bright acidity makes it a great match for seafood pasta dishes, tri-tip steak smothered in wild chanterelles, and chicken satay.
