California Wines and an Italian Wine

For me the wine of the week was the Wildhurst Sauvignon Blanc 2008. Wow it was great. Fruity, crisp and refreshing.

One of my nieces is sending me information when she discovers a wine she really likes. Below are the two that she recently sent to me.

Conte Di Bregonzo Amarone della Valpolicella 2006. This wine was designated “denominazione di origine controllata.” She found this Italian wine at Trader Joes for $16.99. She wrote, “I tried this at Trader Joes today and my palate was overwhelmed….in a good way!”

Earlier she had emailed me about a Merlot that she thought was terrific. This was a Tangley Oaks Merlot 2006 Lot #8 from Napa Valley. She said the restaurant wine list described it as medium-bodied, earthy, red and black fruit flavors and smooth textured.  She wrote that she asked “for a dry red and he served me his favorite. I like it because it was dry of course, full body, a tiny bit of smoky/woody flavor, and no aftertaste. And, it was strong too but in just the right way.”

Thanks Sounia for letting me know about these wines!

Cheers! Kathy
