Montée de Tonnerre Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2018

This Chablis paired perfectly with Mac & cheese made with sharp cheddar and Gruyère. The nose is so fragrant and the palette is crisp with notes of green apple. A great Chablis choice. — 7 months ago

Shepherd's Cottage Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot

Surdyks Staff Selection (Noelle Star). Stellenbosch, South Africa 2014. "Overgaauw is one of South Africa’s pioneer wine estates. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%) and Merlot (40%) that shows concentrated berry aromas and flavors. Not jammy or sweet. The supporting notes of violet, cocoa powder, a definite mineral presence along with a hint of espresso bring balance, and the mouth-coating texture and serious structure make this a wine worthy of a higher price tag than it possesses. Perfect for just about anything on your dinner menu, but incredibly delicious with an aged Cheddar – especially in the form of homemade mac-and-cheese."

Great with spicy brown-sugar glazed grilled salmon.

Star Angel by Montes

Paso Robles Syrah 2009

Dark, smoky nose. Notes of black plum, blackberries and mocha with just a whiff of alcohol. A full, rich, juicy wine with lots of spice and oak. Notes of dark fruits lead to flavors of cocoa powder, oak and black earth with big acidity. The finish is full of big, but soft teeth coating tannins with touches of spice and earth. A great wine for glazed ribs and mac and cheese! — 6 years ago
