BV Coastal Estates Sauvignon Blanc teases the senses with a fragrant bouquet of passion fruit, kiwi, and gooseberry. Tropical fruit flavors focus the lithe and nimble mid-palate accentuated by bright grapefruit and flinty high notes in this pale, green-yellow colored wine. This marriage of fruit and lively acids lingers on the back of the tongue for a long, smooth finish. It is an enjoyable, strait forward wine to enjoy as an aperitif with tapenades, charcuteries, and aged cheeses. Also enjoy with sushi, fried or grilled seafood, fresh oysters, salads or a lemon-thyme marinated grilled chicken.

Duet Of Duck Seared Breast And Leg Confit
Red Wine And Rosemary Reduction With Asparagus And Braised Pearl Onions
Beaurouge is French for "Beautiful Red" and is exactly what this new wine from Beaulieu Vineyard is. This premiere vintage of Beaulieu Vineyard Beaurouge showcases winemaking artistry in the blending of grape varietals and appellations to make a layered, fruit-forward wine. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon form the core, with opulent blackberry, plum and chocolate–cherry truffle expression. The Merlot fills out the mid-palate with plush texture, while Cabernet Sauvignon provides structure. Zinfandel, with its dash of black pepper, and Syrah add deep red-fruit notes and spice. Petite Sirah, Touriga, and Mourvèdre deepen the wine’s inky color, while Carignane gives hints of strawberry, Grenache adds dark raspberry and bay leaf, and Sangiovese enlivens the wine with vibrant wild-cherry notes. A little splash of Petit Verdot completes the blend with a hint of violet.

Grilled Hanger Steak And Frites
Thyme Salt Dusted Yukon Gold Potato Wedges, Spiced Chipotle Ketchup With Garlic Herb Butter
Bright red-ruby Tapestry weaves together the five classic Bordeaux varietals. Slightly medicinal for the soul having aromas of dark berries, licorice and chocolate. A supple blend with restrained sweetness, but a bit sullen today as a strong chocolatey quality currently mutes the wine's fruit. Tannins are dusty and slightly dry. Made from reserve lots that were vinified and aged separately before being blended. Tapestry is much more friendly without being simplistic than some of the other Bordeaux blends available.
