2013 Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc
Location: New Zealand, Marlborough
Pairs well with: Grilled shrimp tacos with fresh cilantro, shredded cabbage, pepper jack cheese, and pico de gallo salsa; or lobster kabobs with pear tomatoes and portobello mushrooms, served with a lobster tamarind sauce.
Why it’s delicious: New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc wines set the bar for what this varietal can offer: crisp, citrus, and tropical flavors wrapped in hints of jalapeño and herbaceous delights! This is the perfect summer white! Serve chilled.
2012 Halter Ranch Rosé Grenache Blend
by Halter Ranch
Location: United States, California, Paso Robles
Pairs well with: Asparagus-cheese tartines, which are fancy, but easy, open-faced sandwiches with crisp asparagus, prosciutto, and three layers of melted cheese.
Why it’s delicious: This is NOT your grandma’s pink, sweet wine! Grenache based, it also boasts an exceptional blend of other Rhône varietals. Palate notes include guava, strawberry, tropical fruits, and a slight minerality. This crisp and refreshing choice will be your go-to wine to share with friends and fireworks.
2010 Rosenblum Cellars Rockpile Road Zinfandel
Location: United States, California, Napa
Pairs well with: Any roasted/grilled meats, but especially a well-seasoned steak, BBQ ribs, or grilled lamb shank and fire roasted vegetables.
Why it’s delicious: You can never go wrong pairing Zinfandel with a BBQ or picnic! Rosenblum sets a Zinfandel standard and this wine delivers: notes of white pepper and a round, full-bodied taste with no shortage of dark summer fruits like boysenberry, cherry, and plum. It’s a stunner and defines this iconic California varietal. Share this wine at any gathering involving a grill, but be sure to keep some for yourself!
