Weekly wine picks for 9/24/05

Morgan 2004 Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Gris $18.99

The light green gold color shows off the youth of this wine. The fresh scents of citrus and tropical fruit emanate from the glass. A rich texture in the mouth brings juicy flavors of pears, melon and peach. This seductive effort is perfectly balanced with crisp acidity giving a very pleasing mouth watering libation of impressive stature and dimension.

Drink with Salinas Valley greens topped with grilled chicken

Napa Wine Co. 2003 Napa Valley Zinfandel $19.99

One hundred percent organically grown Oakville Zinfandel! This wine brings to the table the classic comforting qualities that we Californians have come to love from Zinfandel. Ripe plum, blackberry and floral nuances fill ones olfactory senses. Flavors of anise, berries and cherries permeate your mouth. A rich silky texture is balanced well between oak and fruit and finishes with good length.

Drink with roast rack of lamb
