Bodegas Fillaboa Albariño | Rias Baixas, Spain
All wines produced by Fillaboa are made from the Albariño grape variety, a thick-skinned grape known for its rich variety of aromas – 16 different aromas have been scientifically recognized.
WINEMAKER’S NOTES: Contains beautiful aromas of orange blossoms, green apples, freshly-cut pineapple and stone fruit. The Fillaboa Albariño is a crystalline, straw-colored yellow in appearance. Soft on the palate, this wine exhibits a well-balanced flavor profile that enhances its freshness and complexity.
PAIR WITH: Seafood, Asian fare or even salsa and chips. Enjoy it on its own as an apéritif, with tapas or with full-course meals of veal, chicken, ham, medium-bodied cheeses and an array of vegetable dishes.
Simi Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon | Sonoma, California
Simi Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is fermented in stainless steel and aged for 16 months in a combination of French and American oak.
WINEMAKER’S NOTES: This California red offers compelling cherry, plum, cassis, black pepper, cedar, clove and cocoa character with a full body, silky texture, velvety tannins and a long, elegant finish.
PAIR WITH: Beef steak, Lamb chops
Fonseca Late Bottled Vintage Port
Vintage port runs like a continuous thread through most of Fonseca’s history. Since the emergence of vintage port as a great classic wine in the first half of the 19th century, Fonseca has been one of its most admired and consistent producers. The release of the legendary 1840, the first vintage port sold under the Fonseca name, marked the start of a steady stream of magnificent vintages which continues to this day.
WINEMAKER’S NOTES: Fine deep color with brick-red edge. Good depth of nose; sweet and harmonious, some spirit on the nose with rich, soft touches of dark chocolate and cherry (cherry tomato). An elegant wine with fine structure and exciting hints of spice, mint and very focused fruit.
PAIR WITH: Chocolate fondant, caramelized custard, cheese
Cheers to living the OLife in 2016!
