Cabernet Sauvignon

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

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.

Goes with this CD: Tierney Sutton's Dancing in the Dark

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
