Weekly Wine Picks for 8/6/05

Joel Gott 2004 California Sauvignon Blanc $10.99

A light straw color with aromas of citrus and melon and hay, while on the palate the citrus is echoed accompanied with tropical fruits and pear. A zesty finish that is long and rich but clean and minerally.

Drink with grilled halibut or shellfish

Pelerin 2003 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir $24.99

The dark ruby color in addition to fully ripened aromas of cherries, forest floor and brown spices make this a generously-endowed Pinot Noir that shows good texture, adequate acidity and pretty ripe cherry, raspberry and wild berry flavors the come together nicely on the finish with a flash of toasty oak.

Drink with marinated squab or quail
