The best of our region’s Chardonnays can be absolutely fascinating, with qualities ranging from rich and smoky overtones achieved by oak-barrel aging to a buttery richness or light smack of acid. Increasingly complex, Chardonnay also incorporates some of the sweetest aromas of flora and tropical fruit.

“New World” Pinot Noir tends to be slightly more full bodied and richly extracted than most of its traditional burgundian brethren. With flavors ranging anywhere from intense black cherry and stone fruit to a subtle, rich earthiness, the charms of Pinot Noir accompany many dishes, from rich roasted poultry to succulent veal almost perfectly.”

Zinfandel is typically rich, lively and heavily extracted. Aromas and flavors are often cited as being akin to wild brambles and light white pepper. Exuberantly ripe yet sporting a lightly acidic finish, Zinfandel holds up well against the heartiest of dishes.

Merlots often bear resemblance to the richness and complexities of sun-ripened plums. Typically medium-bodied wines with moderate acidity, their softness and full-flavor make them unquestionably versatile in their imbibements.

Cabernet, when young has a tendency to lean toward dryness or slight astringency. With a moderate amount of time in the bottle however, they tend to reveal themselves as both elegant and complex. While most Cabernet is blended to achieve an earlier drink ability, a well-aged, unblended Cabernet can be the perfect accompaniment to the heartiest of dishes.

Chianti is one of the most famous wines. It has a wide range of quality and taste. It has flavors of violets with white pepper notes. Brunello is richer, bigger than Chianti. Super and more complex Tuscan wines are usually big, chewy Cabernet blended with Merlot. They are  modern classics.
