With temps finally starting to cool off, we’d like a little bit of ‘boldness’ from our wines! My “Wine Guy” Ralph at the H-E-B Plus at Blanco & 1604 in San Antonio is back with his bargain picks for one of the busiest times of year. Now is the time to load up!
Poet’s Row Chardonnay
A nice Napa white with aromas of pear, honey dew and hints of vanilla. Complex flavors!
Pairing: Sea bass, Pumpkin Risotto
The Essence of Oregon Pinot Noir
One of the partners in this Oregon winery, A to Z Wineworks, is none of than SA’s own Gregg Popovich. Raspberry, strawberry flavors…an earthy, smoky finish.
Pairing: Beef Bourguignon, Duck with Mushrooms
Liparita Cabernet Sauvignon
This full-bodied red has lots of black cherry and cedar in the nose. Plum & chocolate notes on the finish.
Pairing: Filet, BBQ Duck, Venison
