I’m not the type of person to encourage someone to drink but boy, it has been enjoyable to sit down at the dinner table after yet another bad commute due to all the snow, and enjoy a hearty glass of red. So come on in after a tough work week and check out this weekend’s selections.
And if you need to warm up, just see me on Monday get fired up if my boys’ ski lessons get cancelled yet again because of snow. Hello! They’re ski lessons!

Italian & French Finds
Vignarco Orvieto 2013
From the hills of Umbria in Central Italy, this white blend just recently turned over to the 2013 vintage. Fresh and floral, this wine features notes of citrus and pear with a slight nuttiness on a long finish.
Nemorino Toscana Bianco 2012
Made from an equal blend of Trebbiano and Semillion, this Tuscan white is rich and flavorful, like their more popular red counterparts. Lemon custard and tropical notes with spicy oak on the finish.
Chateau Unang Ventoux 2010
This Rhone blend from Ventoux is made from 65% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 5% Cinsault. It is earthy and dry with notes of raspberries, pepper spice and forest herbs. Great with a gamey venison or lamb.
Chateau Rayssac Cabardes 2009
I have not even tried this wine yet but every wine I have sampled from this hilly region in the Languedoc has been fantastic. It is made from a unique blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah and Grenache. I can’t wait to give it a shot!
