Michael-David Winery's 7 Heavenly Chardonnay



Description: Michael-David Winery, based in California’s Lodi wine region, has released the 2008 vintage of its 7 Heavenly Chardonnay, which it’s produced since 2001. 7 Heavenly Chardonnay is the sister bottling to the winery’s widely acclaimed 7 Deadly Zins. The new bottling offers a fresh new look on the outside, but the same consistent quality that consumers have come to know on the inside. The new 7 Heavenly Chardonnay label design was created by Lodi based firm, 6 West Design. Previously, the bottle was clear glass with logos and images floating across the front of the bottle. Stylistically, the new bottle features a white band across the bottom of the bottle, which fades into a cloud-like image around the sides of the bottle. Gold lettering and sky-blue accents, along with a white foil capsule, give the new label a cleaner, brighter and more sophisticated look. Inside the bottle, the 2008 7 Heavenly Chardonnay ($16) begins with aromas of mango, pineapple and vanilla. The wine has crisp flavors of light lime and a touch of butter. The oak treatment on this wine is apparent, but not over the top. Made with 100% Chardonnay, the wine was aged for 14 months in French oak.

Now, Bethenny Frankel has teamed up with Spirits Industry Veteran David Kanbar to bottle the Skinnygirl Margarita, and they are flying off shelves. It satisfies the demand for an all-natural cocktail that is a mere 100 calories per serving, equivalent to a glass of wine, without any of the impurities that cause weight gain and painful hangovers. The cocktail is honest, straight forward and no nonsense like Bethenny herself. Skinnygirl Margaritas are mixed with only premium Blue Agave clear tequila, a hint of agave nectar, fresh lime juice and a tiny splash of Triple Sec. The pre-mixed cocktail is ready to serve over ice. No additional tequila needs to be added; this is a full strength margarita. As Bethenny says, “Everyone wants to drink a margarita, but no one wants the guilt or the calories. That’s why I created the Skinnygirl Margarita - the margarita you can trust,” says Bethenny Frankel. “I’m a “Fix-ologist.” I fix recipes to be enjoyed without worrying about the waistline.”

Budget Champagne Alternative

Cremant d'Alsace is a festive choice that won't break the bank

Cremant d'Alsace is a festive choice that won't break the bank



Description: As a best-kept secret as far as Champagne alternatives, Crémant d’Alsace is made according to the highest standards of the Champagne method – meaning hand-harvested, undergoing secondary fermentation in the bottle, etc. – only lacking the Champagne appellation and price tag. At generally $14-24/bottle, Crémant d’Alsace (from Alsace, bien sûr, in the northeast corner of France) is a bargain. The Alsace region is home to hundreds of winemaking families, many stretching back three centuries or more, and has a strong focus on organic and biodynamic winemaking. Some of the most widely available Crémant d’Alsace producers are Albert Mann (which uses 25-year-old vines); François Baur (biodynamic); and Lucien Albrecht (which also makes a 100% Pinot Noir rosé); but there are dozens of others. To make your sparkling wine budget stretch even further, Crémant d’Alsace cocktails are another option, and/or for food pairing ideas, visit http://justaddfood.com/stories/add-spice-to-the-party-by-grub-street.php

R&B Cellars 2007 Sauvignon Blanc Serenade In Blanc

2007 Sauvignon Blanc Serenade In Blanc

2007 Sauvignon Blanc Serenade In Blanc



Description: The vibrant, crisp Ruby Grapefruit from the Lake County combines with the exotic citrus tones of Mandarin and Blood Oranges from the Mendocino fruit. The resulting wine is complex yet elegant. The marriage of flavors is like a tropical fruit tart with good acidity and fleshy citrus flavors all over a layer of “crème patissiere.” The combination of vineyards and appellations also brings out a wonderful mineral character typical of Sancerre from France. The combination of the tank fermented wine with the barrel fermented wine maintains a great balance in both the nose and mouth between the crisp, exotic tropical citrus fruit and the creamy character of the barrel fermented wines. This is my favorite style of Sauvignon Blanc. You can sip it by itself or match it with a myriad of lighter fare.

R&B Cellars 2006 Saxy Syrah

2006 Saxy Syrah

2006 Saxy Syrah



Description: The vibrant fresh blackberry fruit from Napa combined with the dark, spicy components from Sonoma complimented each other and set up a rich massive fruit platform that was softened ever so lightly by the addition of the Viognier. Adding Viognier is very traditional and typical in the Rhone region of France, and helps to soften mouth feel and make the wine a little more approachable upon release. It also adds that “Je ne sais pas”, the French are so fond of pointing out in their wines. The resulting wine is complex, intense, and a blockbuster of blackberry fruit and blueberries, with exotic spice and the subtle tarry components one expects of a great Syrah. The moderate oak program in the Napa preserves the vibrant fruit and a softer mouth feel. The bouquet shows layer upon layer of dark berry fruit with hints of pepper and spice laced throughout. The flavors are dark blackberry and currant with hints of smoke and tar ending in a smooth silky finish. The color is intense, to say the least. If your pen runs out of ink, you can use the wine.
