Pretty-Smith Cabernet Sauvignon 1999
Appellation: Paso Robles, CA RS: 0.05% Alcohol: 14.0%
Tasting Notes: The deep garnet hue sets the stage for a rich entry leading to a weighty, full-bodied palate, accompanying big, drying tannins and a brush of sweet oak. Structured and stylish, this wine can be easily paired with hearty meats, grilled vegetables, and complements a wide range of spices.
Goes with this CD: Moutin Reunion Quartet's Red Moon
Louis M. Martini Monte Rosso Vineyard Folle Blanche 2002
Varietal: 100% Folle Blanche Appellation: Sonoma Valley, CA pH: 3.23 TA: .4 g/100 ml Alcohol Content: 14.6% Aging: Stainless Steel
Tasting Notes: Green apple-lemon and a mineral alpine wild flower aroma sits against a backdrop of lightly herbaceous honey. The mouth is typically a little tarter than most white wines, with delicate tannins and sweet mid-palate.
