Notes from your Sommelier

Pin It As I have been the designated sommelier for my friends in New York and Key Biscayne here are some ideas you should pick up now.

Caymus, Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 at Costco in Miami (8 bottles left) $58.99

Riondo Prosseco, 90 Pts Robert Parker for aperitifs and Bellini's $9.99 Costco

Ecco Domani Pinot Grigio $7.99 at Costco. Good for the ladies who lunch. Tasted it last week at my mother's canasta lunch. They loooved it.. I'm not a fan of PG but it is good for a ladies lunch and a great price.

Banfi San Angelo Pinot Grigio $15.99. Better for the ladies who lunch.

For those of you in NYC or, for that matter , anywhere in the US where wine can be shipped to, don't miss the next two wines. Sherry Lehman is shipping for free anywhere!!! They do a beautiful job shipping wines so don't be afraid to order for delivery.

Now don't sniff at Roses--they are not the pink sweet stuff from a jug you are thinking about. Real men on vacation in their yachts in the Riviera enjoy them, so why can't you. They are delightful, dry and refreshing and dress up any meal, especially lunch. This rose is it... and a real bargain!

Domaine Ott, Rose 'Chateau Romassan', 2007

On sale now until April 1st! From the Cote d’Azur in Provence comes France’s most famous rosé. This gorgeously dry rosé is distinguished by its amazingly creamy and velvety smooth texture, exceptional nose, perfect balance and a wonderful finish.

“This is everything that a rose wine should be. A delectable, pure, peachy nose blossoms from the glass whilst the palate is beautifully balanced with passion fruit, peach and rosewater. Superb definition on the finish. A rose that just seems to blossom with aeration. Outstanding!” —Wine Advocate

This is available as a pre-arrival. Offer ends April 1st, and the wine will be available to ship the first week of April

The next is a great second wine from a great chateau from one of the best years ever for Bordeaux! I still have a couple of bottles of Prieure Lichine 2005 left and that wine is awesome. Margaux are probably the softest and most seductive of the great Bordeaux and that is probably why I like them so much!

Chateau de Clairefont, (Margaux), 2005
Taste and enjoy the second wine of the renowned Chateau Prieure Lichine from the remarkable 2005 vintage AT AN INCREDIBLE PRICE!

Chateau de Clairefont is a wine with many of the characteristics of its more famous parent but in a more fruit forward and approachable style.

The 2005 is one of the greatest vintages in recent years and the quality shines through. We loved this stylish Margaux so much we bought all we could… and are passing the savings on to you!

For those of you who like wine and can afford to get a case of this, do it..you wont regret it! And do get a bottle of the rose, it makes any lunch memorable. Chin chin!
