Castellare di Castellina Chianti Classico 2014

When I go for Northern Italian wines that pair well, from pasta to pork chops, I like the bright Sangiovese tones of Chianti Classico. This 2014 model from Castellare di Castellina brings customary violet with a slight leather nose.
Its bright fruit is balanced with a dry tannic structure, friendly acidity, and a hint of aniseed. Open my current favorite, and tell me what you think on a Sunday at the upstairs bar.

Clos Saron Old Block Pinot Noir, Sierra Foothills 2012

Clos Saron is hands-down one of the best wineries in California, and winemaker Gideon is a genius with Pinot Noir.
His Old Block really speaks to his terroir-driven, French-inspired style with its gorgeous earthy tones and smooth red fruit.

Birichino Grenache Besson Vineyard 2014

I really love this old vine California Grenache with an Old World panache. It is light-bodied and bright, but delivers impressive elegance and balance. Huckleberry, wild strawberry, and cherry cordial mingle with subtle tannins and hints of spice. Delicious.
