Macadoodles Wine Staff Summertime Wine Picks

Leslie: 

Mayu Pedro Ximenez

-Bright days cold nights, and the world’s clearest skies.

-Chile’s northern Elqui Valley is a desert oasis for stargazing and winemaking. Discover the taste of the milky way, what the ancient Incans called Mayu.

-Mayu Pedro Ximenez (yes, Pedro Ximenez is the grape variety) is a stylish white wine that offers appealing floral and fruit aromas with flavors balanced by crisp, electric acidity, minerality and a long finish. Mineral driven, citrusy, and just a slight hint of white flowers (orange blossom?), this wine perfectly pairs with fresh seafood, sushi and ceviche or just floating in the lake.

Vina Robles The Arborist

-Deep violet. Pungent, smoke- and spice-accented dark berries, cherry and licorice on the perfumed nose. Sweet cassis and blueberry flavors take on a floral aspect as the wine opens. Rich yet lively in style, finishing long and smoky, with repeating dark fruit character and a touch of salty olive paste. This wine is really showing its Syrah component, and it delivers solid value for Paso Robles. Give it time to open –a full day helps.

Rita:

McManis Barbera

-This Barbera is bright with raspberry, black cherry and clove notes. It’s medium bodied with hints of mocha that lingers with soft, mellow tannins. Just recently brought in, customers keep coming back for more.

Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc/Viognier

-This distinctive white blend marries the crisp, honeyed citrus fruit of 78% Chenin blanc with soft, floral, peachy notes of 22% Viognier. Good with seafood and spicy dishes or enjoying on the porch. I love to cook seafood with this delicious white wine blend.

Sarita:

Langman Estate Edward’s Zinfandel

-This medium bodied, well-balanced wine has a bouquet of strawberry jam, white pepper and cherry compote and a soft and velvety palate of ripe red fruit and subtle anise.

Zolo White Wine

-A fantastic white for the summer! It has friendly flavors of tropical fruits with hints of grapefruit and jasmine. The naturally sweet and slight effervescent palate makes it a refreshing choice for almost any occasion.

JB:

Franciscan Cabernet Sauvignon

-A Full-bodied, dry, powerful and intense Cabernet Sauvignon with blackberry, cassis and dark cherry combined with mocha and sweet hint of toasty vanilla.

Monkey Bay Sauvignon Blanc

-Overflowing with ripe, sweet flavors of grapefruit and lemon, the palate is infused with delicate herbal characters. This zesty white’s finish is crisp and refreshing. Pairing well with most lighter fare, it is easy to see why this critter is so popular.

Monica:

Rombauer Chardonnay

-Juicy peaches, pineapple and citrus greet the nose, followed by vanilla and toasty oak. Ripe tropical fruit, pear and apple flood the lush, silky palate. Soft spice and nectarines mark the lengthy finish and fresh, mouthwatering acidity leaves you longing for another glass.

Meiomi Pinot Noir

-A rich garnet color with a ruby edge, the wine opens to reveal lifted fruit aromas of bright strawberry and jammy fruit, mocha and vanilla, along with toasty oak notes. Expressive boysenberry, blackberry, dark cherry, juicy strawberry, and toasty mocha flavors lend complexity and depth on the palate.

Renee:

J Lohr Valdiguie

-This is for those new to trying reds, as it is a good price point as well as soft and easy to drink. This wine is a juicy complexion of berries and pomegranate with floral aromas.

Electra Moscato

-Electra is a great sweet summer wine. It’s great for a picnic or sitting on the porch in the summer and goes with almost anything. This Moscato is crisp and bursting with citrus, ripe melons and peaches.

Jon:

Big Smooth Zinfandel

-Intense aromas of plum, black cherry, fig and beautiful notes of fresh bramble fruit are framed by toasty coconut and Tahitian vanilla. Silky smooth tannins and a rich full-bodied palate, along with juicy boysenberry, pomegranate and brown baking spice linger on the finish.

Coppola Director’s Cut Chardonnay

-A full-bodied Chardonnay bursting with flavors of butterscotch, brioche & baked apples. Sourced RRV fruit California’s premiere Chardonnay growing region.
