Top 3 Summer Wines

According to Mary Schaffer of Napa & Co.



Lucien Albrecht Reserve Gewurztraminer, Alsace, France 2012

This wine bursts with the aroma of honey, red roses and tropical fruit, yet is dry and rich on the palate. It is aromatic and robust, so it needs food to match. It loves smoky flavors, fruit, ginger, spice, cloves and rich proteins like foie gras, lobster or duck.

Fort Ross, Rosé of Pinot Noir, Sonoma, California 2012

This bright, full-bodied dry Rosé has a rich palate that is delicately balanced by minerality and crisp, refreshing acidity. This Rosé of Pinot Noir has expressive aromatics with notes of wild strawberry, watermelon rind, orange peel and dried flowers. It screams for BBQ!

Callabriga, Tempranillo, Douro, Portugal 2009

Callabriga Douro Red is a lively wine with a red hue and shades of purple. It has complex aromas dominated by notes of ripe red fruits; dry figs; smoky, aromatic herbs; and exotic wood. Dense, balanced, with smooth and firm tannins—think steak—make it a great Cabernet replacement in the summer.
