WINES OF THE WEEK
Piero Benevelli ‘La Costa’ Dolcetto d’Alba 2018
From the storied slopes of Monforte d’Alba, in Piedmont where conditions are perfect for making intensely perfumed reds of inimitable local character, ‘La Costa’ is a Dolcetto that is loaded with aromas of violets and ripe berries. It is full-bodied yet soft and effortlessly downable, providing satisfaction without pretense.
Corvidae ‘Ravenna’ Riesling, Yakima Valley 2019
Corvidae is Latin for the crow family of birds, which are a common presence in the eastern Washington vineyards. Vibrant and refreshing, this Riesling exudes mouthwatering acidity with key lime pie, honeysuckle, and apricot notes. It pairs beautifully with roasted root vegetables or white fish with glazed carrots.
Domaine Jean-Louis Chave ‘Mon Coeur’ Côtes-du-Rhône 2019
From the 16th generation winemaking, Chave family in France, ‘Mon Coeur’ or ‘My Heart’ presents smoke-accented cherry and herb nuance with air. Smooth and concentrated, it offers mineral- and spice-accented dark berry and violet pastille flavor with a spicy jolt of cracked pepper.
