A Rich & Velvety Full‑Bodied Red: Montgó Tempranillo

posted on June 22nd, 2017 by Sara Trujillo

Tempranillo, depending on where it is cultivated, goes by many names - Tinta del Pais and Cencibel in Spain, Aragonez or Tinta Roriz in Portugal – and has gained fame as a black grape widely grown to make full-bodied red wines in its native Spain. This mouth-watering beauty exudes intense rich aromas of sweet strawberries, mature plums and raisins with hints of tobacco, dark chocolate and minerals. The rich and juicy flavors of fresh ripe berry fruits combined with gentle notes of tasted oak and a refreshing acidity are softened by the velvety tannins on the finish. Ole! The grapes were handpicked at the optimum stage of ripeness. This was followed by gentle de-stemming and crushing along with an element of saignée – literally the bleeding of the grapes that winemakers use to increase intensity in their red wines. Initial temperature controlled fermentation and maceration was followed by the wine being aged in French oak barrels for 6 months. Suggested Retail $14.99 Sale… Read More

East Weeknight Dinner Recipe: Grilled Shrimp with Peach Salsa

posted on June 19th, 2017 by Sara Trujillo

Mondays can be a bit tiring at the office - and on the home front. So for most of us, preparing an involved dinner is just not appealing. But, the good news is summertime calls for fresh, healthy, and quick recipes anyways! There's simply no need to stand over the kitchen counter chopping 20+ vegetables for an Autumn stew or dredging and battering chicken breasts for a proper Chicken Parmesan...at least not for another few months. Because let's face it, in 80-degree weather, we're less interested in heavily-sauced, hot dinners. A cool and crisp combo is far more enticing. This Grilled Shrimp with Peach Salsa recipe screams summer. Add to it some Jasmine rice with a touch of lime juice and zest along with some grilled zucchini and you have a perfect weeknight supper made in less than 30 minutes. Grilled Shrimp with Peach Salsa Ingredients: 2 lbs. large shrimp, peeled and deveined 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 garlic clove, minced 1 Tablespoon lime juice salt… Read More

Father’s Day Wine Special: 2 for $12 Celler Barcelona Red Blend

posted on June 15th, 2017 by Sara Trujillo

The initial mouth feel is full of rich, sweet blackberries and black raspberries. Robust yet smooth and ripe on the mid-palate, flavors of dark chocolate and fresh berries coat your mouth with a sublime, lengthy finish. The blend is Tempranillo and Grenache. Pair this Spanish beauty with grilled meats, cheeses and pizza. Celler Barcelona was created by long tenured California Winemaker, Russell Smith, in partnership with World Renowned wineries in Spain. His career in wine making began in 1983 settling in Napa Valley where he honed his craft while working with well-known wineries including Joseph Phelps vineyards, Flora Springs and then Becker Vineyards in Texas.

Your Father’s Day Scotch Gifting Guide

posted on June 13th, 2017 by Sara Trujillo

Scotch  simply cannot be purchased blindly. In fact, Scotch Whisky (no "e") is a love-hate relationship for many, if you are whisky averse, run the other direction. If you are a whisky fan, then this is your lucky day. But how does one properly pick a great bottle? That isn't exactly an easy question to answer...but in short, it can be selected by region, kind of like wine. Depending on the region where it's distilled it'll have a varying profile. Let's start with some Scotch basics: Scotch Whisky is a collection of grain based beverages distilled in Scotland. Most are produced from malted barley, although corn is used in some, which post distillation is aged in oak casks for a desired length of time. The Single Malt Whisky, the ultimate connoisseurs dram, is 100% malted barley, from a single distillery. Age statements range from 8 years to the elusive and incredibly rare 50 yr, which can exceed the price of an automobile. Scotch Whiskies are primarily produced in 4… Read More
