2013 Hidden Ridge “55% Slope” Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 
Plum Price $89.97 List Price $130
rp97A remarkable wine and reminiscent of the great classics from the golden era of the Mayacamas. | For Tim Martin, a brand designer, building Tusk into a cult Cabernet was a matter of marketing aspiration in a bottle, to the luxurious quality of winemaker Philippe Melka’s wine. It’s in the moment. It is simply loaded. This is a modern-day classic by winemaker Philippe Melka that could compete with very finest Cabernet-based wines in the world.

Beautiful and pure Oregon Pinot Noir. | Expressive notes of raspberry and pomegranate with hints of cocoa and baking spices on the nose with rich red fruit notes on the palate and a focused finish.  This seamless, elegant beauty is Pinot in its truest form and finishes with silky tannins.  Try with grilled, cedar-planked salmon, grilled veal chops with a Balsamic glaze, or seared duck breast brushed with pomegranate molasses.

rp92Dad would love this Spanish beauty. | Comprised of 90% Tempranillo, 5% Garnacha, and 5% Graciano, this perfectly aged Rioja has explosive notes of Damson plum on the nose with a touch of spice.  Rich dark cherry notes abound on this medium-bodied gem and the finish is lush with vanillin and a touch of dusty tannins.  Great with a grilled tenderloin of beef, thick pork chops with caramelized onions with rosemary, and whole smoked duck.

 

 

 

2014 Arkenstone NVD Cabernet Sauvignon
Plum Price $74.97 List Price $90
Your dad will remember this California stunner for some time to come. | This big, balanced, structured Cabernet is primarily sourced from the famed Howell Mountain AVA, resulting in a dark, brooding, classicly-styled mountain wine.  It’s a deep, purply black in the glass with persistent aromas of blackberry, huckleberry, and dark cherry on the beautifully perfumed nose.  Concentrated notes of black cherry, fig, chocolate, and blueberry evolve on the palate and the finish lingers for what seems an eternity.  Perfect with a tomahawk steak on the grill, smoked brisket, or a roast leg of lamb studded with garlic cloves.

Plum Price $21.99 List Price $26
Great for sipping while cooking over a hot grill. |  This crisp, dry, citrusy Sauvignon Blanc from Michigan star Charles Woodson’s winery is a perfect accompaniment with shellfish, lemon chicken, and light pastas.  Its grapefruit aroma notes match the acidity on the palate and also draws apricot, honeysuckle and lemongrass flavors.  Nice summer wine on the patio, but even better after a round of golf.

ws93  Any steakhouse worth its name will have a great Amarone on the wine list. | The reason is Amarone, which translates to “the great bitter”, is a concentrated wine made from dried grapes that is lush, rich, velvety and perfect with grilled steak.  Allegrini’s Amarone scored 93 points from Vinous and 93 from Wine Spectator.  It deserves the scores as it is full-bodied with notes of ripe cherry, herbs, and sweet spices that finishes with chewy tannins and matches great with protein.

Once it opens up the complexities of fruit and earthy tones makes everything else just go away.
