Wine of the Week
There is a new trend coming along.
Moscato is making a name for itself right now and Caposaldo has a great one. It is a lightly sweet, effervescent wine. It delivers fragrant aroma of Acacia blossoms, Peaches and Apricot and clean, crisp finish. Handpicked Moscato grapes from hilltop vineyards in Italy’s south central region of Lombardy. It is a great bargain at around $10.
Yes, this is one of the most expensive wine recommendations from the Wine Crush.
But how it is worth it! This 2007 is dense and layered, with a range of aromas and flavors that keep bringing you back to the glass again and again. This is the cult classic and could possibly define you as a wine drinker.
This may be a little hard to find, but worth the effort.
This superb wine is the perfect expression of Monterey Chardonnay. Aromas are expressive of apple and pear with notes of crème brûlée. The palette is very rich with many layers of ripe tropical and citrus fruit flavors accented with toasty oak nuances which linger on a long, creamy finish.
This is a personal favorite, and yes, I may be a little biased because I helped them while I was in California a few weeks ago.
This is a single vineyard Sauvignon Blanc. It is crisp, has a great acidity, as it explodes in your mouth. It is a wonderful compliment to any day out on the porch. It runs about $24.
