2013 Durell Vineyard ORIGIN Chardonnay Durell Estate Vineyard

Impossibly rich for an unoaked Chardonnay, ORIGIN surges with tropical fruit, lemon drop, peach and honey flavors. High acidity adds balance and gives the wine mouthwatering tartness ... and makes it the perfect pairing with light, delicate foods like fresh grilled fish or fresh seafood. Not in the mood for fish? Try an amazing summer salad. PROMISING RECIPES: Epicurious: Grilled Halibut with Lemon Basil Vinaigrette Williams-Sonoma: Seared Sesame Crusted Tuna Martha Stewart: Tomato, Baby Lettuce & Olive Bread Salad WineDinner

2013 "One Sky" Chardonnay Sonoma Mountain

Fermented and aged in French Oak for 15 months with 100% Malolactic conversion, this supple mountain Chardonnay has alluring aromatics of lemon curd and grilled brioche. Juicy grapefruit, toasted hazelnuts and Gravenstein apple pie accentuate the lush mouthfeel. With a richer mouthfeel, but still plenty of lovely backbone, this wine begs for grilled chicken, crab cakes or butternut squash ravioli. PROMISING RECIPES: Food Network: Grilled Lemon & Rosemary Chicken Coastal Living: Maine Crab Cakes with Lime Aioli (In Nor-Cal, we'd of course use Dungeness crab) Epicurious: Butternut Squash, Sage & Goat Cheese Ravioli IMG_2744

2013 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir Russian River Valley

This wine exhibits lots of juicy, red raspberry and cherry cola flavors. Bright on the palate with fresh flavors of currant and earthy forest floor. A classic Russian River Valley Pinot Noir calls for classic Pinot Noir pairings: Mushrooms, Pork and Salmon. PROMISING RECIPES: Food & Wine: Wild Mushroom and Burrata Bruschetta Chow.com: Grilled Salmon with Lemon Pepper Compound Butter Sonoma County's Own "Pork & Pinot" festival featured this recipe from Dry Creek Kitchen's Dustin Valette: Bacon Lardon Stuffed Pork Tenderloin   IMG_2763

2013 Bien Nacido Vineyard Pinot Noir Santa Maria Valley

Hailing from Santa Maria Valley in Santa Barbara County, this vintage of Bien Nacido dazzles again with refreshing mint, currant and spiced maple syrup. Light in the glass while demonstrating depth on the palate, sea air and dark cherries coat the mouth and accent the creamy long finish. This wine has the depth to stand up to bigger flavors. PROMISING RECIPES: Food & Wine: Fennel Garlic Pork Roast Tyler Florence's Filet Mignon with Mushrooms Food & Wine: Wild Mushroom Lasagna SPL_6519

2013 Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir, "The James" Sta. Rita Hills

Complex wild berry and forest floor on the nose with hints of creamy cherry and loamy earth. On the palate, bright acidity and ripe huckleberry transition into racy red and black fruit with a structured, balanced finish. Pork chops? YES. Grilled pizza - we'll take two slices. Feeling fancy? Try duck. PROMISING RECIPES: Fine Cooking: Juiciest Grilled Pork Chops Williams-Sonoma: Arugula & Prosciutto Pizza Epicurious: Black Pepper Roasted Duck Breasts with Grilled Plums Happy cooking (and drinking!) full-logo-copper -- The Three Sticks Wine Team
