This Week’s Featured Wines
Mwitu Chenin Blanc, W.O. Western Cape, South Africa (2011)
Medium bodied with a pleasant roundness. Shows off Chenin’s acidity without being too racy. Reminds us of a Sweettart, in all the right ways.
99 Vines Zinfandel, California (NV)
Showcases bright, red fruit characteristic of Zinfandels from Lodi, et al., with an easy-going nature that makes it approachable and quaffable.
Veglio D.O.C.G. Moscato d’Asti, Italy (2010)
Gorgeous, full body with light carbonation (‘Frizzante’). Pleasant fruit sweetness of dried apricots, with just a touch of cane sugar on the end.
Zaleo Tempranillo, D.O. Ribera del Guadiana, Spain (2010)
Fruit forward; more robust than value wines featuring this grape, but still light enough for small plates. Lingering finish; tannins present, but soft.
