Leslie SbroccoMy 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. I will also share some wine tips with each episode.

2010 Argento Torrontes, Salta, Argentina $12
A real value, this aromatic wine is made with Torront├ęs, Argentina’s signature white grape. Crisp, citrusy flavors make it an ideal pick to pair with spicy grilled shrimp, curry dishes, and fresh cheese.

2009 Merryvale Pinot Noir, Carneros, California $35
Packed with red berry fruit flavors, this is quintessential California Pinot. A silky texture combines with a kick of fresh acidity to make this a mouthwateringly alluring red. A perfect partner for broiled salmon or mushroom-laden pork loin.
