My name is Leslie Sbrocco and I’m the host of Check, Please! Bay Area. Each week, I will be sharing my tasting notes about the wine the guests and I drank on set during the taping of the show.
Wines of the Week: KQED Wine Club
Our guests enjoyed these two delicious offerings from the KQED Wine Club. These wines serve up worldwide diversity from a refreshing white to an elegant red. Join the club!
2006 Osseus Sauvignon Blanc, Santa Ynez Valley, California
Think of this wine as sunshine in a bottle. Bright and juicy with loads of citrus fruit flavors, it’s the type of wine you want to sip while basking in the sunshine.
2005 La Fenetre Cabernet Sauvignon, Santa Barbara, California
Cabernet Sauvignon is so popular because it offers a mouthful of fruit backed up with structure and body. It’s the kind of wine you want to drink with hearty fare from lamb to burgers.
2005 Judd’s Hill Petite Sirah, Lodi, California
Petite Sirah — the grape variety — produces wines that are anything but petite. Think of them as a linebacker on a football team nicknamed “Tiny.” This version packs a wallop of jammy fruit with a peppery kick.
