What We’re Drinking NowWine of the Moment

Vega Sindoa Merlot, Bodegas Nekeas – 2010

Plummy and modern, fresh and smooth, crowd-pleasing Merlot and a stunning value. Medium-bodied, but unrestrained, tannins are overtly smooth and supple. A fine crossover red that can go equally well with savory roast / barbecued chicken, burgers and steaks.
A Sweet Treat For You

Brachetto d’Acqui, Ca’Bianca – 2010

A lightly sparkling and delicately sweet traditional red wine from Italy’s Piedmont region. Possessing an vibrant ruby red color with a fine mousse, as well an alluring perfume of freshly crushed berries carry through on the palate contained in a zippy, fruity package. This unique red is perfect for summer brunch or with berry and chocolate based desserts. The Brachetto d’Acqui is sourced from estate owned vineyards situated well above 1000 feet in elevation along eastern slopes in Piedmont’s Alto Monferrato region. Vines are densely planted in soils composed of sedimentary marl. Vineyard yields are kept extremely low and the wine is vinified in the traditional manner for this DOCG – charrmat method for lightly frizzante wine.
