This week we’re featuring three classically styled wines from the best region in California –
Glass Mountain chardonnay has a crisp taste with a pineapple, apricot finish. Fabulous for a fall Sunday and grilled shrimp. Primary white is the buttery, rich style of chardonnay excellent alone or with roasted Tuscan chicken on the bone. The Primary red is cabernet made for those hearty stews or deep rich casseroles – a stick to your ribs red for the cold weather coming.
$34 dollars worth of wine for $27 – that’s just nine bucks a bottle for excellent quality vino.
Time to mix it up with two big-bomb red blends!
The first is The Big Easy from Fess Parker winery. This blend of Syrah, Petite Syrah and Grenache is a well structured California beauty with big backbone and loads of fruit. Rich and juicy backed up with massive tannins. a must for venison or any fall hearty stew.
The second red blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro will also stand up to big bold dinners like grilled lamb and root vegetables. Powell & Son produced a red that you could pound nails with if you wanted.
Both wines are 15% alcohol backed up with jammy berries over the nose.
Get ’em while they’re hot at Vinomania.
