2018 Laurent Miquel 'Pere et Fils' Chardonnay, France
Laurent Miquel's family heritage dates back generations in the Languedoc region of France. The Languedoc has shown us for years that good farming and talented winemaking is a wonderful recipe for success. Laurent and his father Henri make a generous crowd pleaser of a wine. Pale straw color in the glass. It's all floral notes and stone fruits out of the glass. The wine is medium body, well balanced, with matching pear and melon flavors on the lingering finish.
2019 Laurent Miquel 'Solas' Pinot Noir, France
Solas Pinot Noir is fragrant with ripe cherry, plum and raspberry. The texture is what made us stand up and pay close attention to this bottle: silky and delicious on the palate. A glass will sip down easily by itself (making it a great choice for parties or those early Fall evening). It will also make an easy match for a wide range of foods. This is the kind of red that goes with almost anything: grilled BBQ, veggies, fish, etc. It also tastes terrific slightly cool!
2018 Cypress Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon, California
The windswept Cypress tree, the unmistakable signature plant of California’s coastal terrain, owes its gnarled appearance to the maritime air’s persistent movement inland and seaward. The 2018 Cypress Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon features a deep red color, with aromas of black plum and dark chocolate. The palate is medium in weight with a juicy and soft finish. Serious enough for the connoisseur and friendly enough for the casual wine drinker, this wine will pair well with a range of dining options, from marinated strip steak on the grill to pasta.
