Weekly Wine Picks 6/5/05

Simonsig 2004 Stellenbosch Sauvignon Blanc $11.99 (South Africa)

A youthful, green-tinged straw color with delicate scents of earth, sweet citrus, and wet stone. Soft and silky coating the palate with lime, figs and mineral flavors combined with a zesty acidity yet rounding out neatly with finesse at the end.

Drink with a Cesar salad

Staete Landt 2002 Marlborough Pinot Noir $27.99 (New Zealand)

A supple, silky-smooth, middleweight wine has a dark garnet color. Notes of spice, forest floor and black cherry show with good complexity. Delicious flavors of sweet ripe cherry and red berries, provides wonderful balance and charm with the velvety tannins in the finish.

Drink with Lamb Kabobs
