Sipping on Spring

Sipping on Spring

Sipping on Spring

As I sit and write this on the patio of The Good Life, it's 86 and sunny with blue skies and a light breeze and while there may still be cooler days ahead, today is perfection and calls for something light, crisp and refreshing to sip on.  Just the word "spring" makes you feel refreshed and these beverages are the perfect reflecton of Springtime in a glass.

WINE

'19 Maidenstoen Gruner Veltliner, Edna Valley  $30

This first deviation from Riesling extraordinaire, Mike Callahan has crisp minerality with aromas of citrus fruit and hints of peppercorn this bottle would be perfect on your Easter table paired with roasted veggies.

'19 Habit Sauvignon Blanc, Happy Canyon  $43
Winemaker Jeff Fischer only sources from vineyards that are sustainably or organically farmed, in this case McGinley Vineyard. Notes of Kaffir lime, lemon, bright citrus with lovely flora notes and flowering thyme.  A crisp acidity with hints of tropical fruit and tangerine oil.  Great with grilled fish and a stone fruit salad.

'17 Brophy Clark Chardonnay, Santa Maria Valley $34
New Vintage!  This new release has aromas of apricot, pineapple and baked spiced apple accented by hints of vanilla bean and toffee.  On the palate, layers of toasty oak and creamy pear are balanced with bright acidity.  If you are serving Roast Chicken this Easter Sunday, this is the Chardonnay to have on your table.  90 points Wine Enthusiast!

'18 Per Caso Malvasia Bianca, Paso Robles, $31
From winemaker Steve Glossner, this Malvasia Bianca is a spring bouquet in your glass!  Notes of fresh Jasmine, honeysuckle and tropical flowers.  The palate shows good acidity bursting with exotic fruit flavors leaving a clean, dry and refreshing finish. 

Loubud Wines

There are three wines from winemaker Laura Roach that absolutly should be on your Easter table this Sunday if not in your glass all summer.  All three wines are coming from the Cebada Vineyards, Santa Ynez Valley and all are new vintages.

'20 Rosé of Pinot Noir  $35
A refreshing, light bodied and crisp Rosé that pairs perfectly with spicy foods.  It has an elegant nose of cherry blossoms, fresh Asian pear and lime zest with a bright mineral driven palate.  This is your perfect pairing for that honey baked Easter ham.

'19 Sparkling Rosé of Pinot Noir  $55
Handmade in the traditional sparkling method.  Aromas of freshly baked brioche, rose petals, and citrus rind with a white frothy mousse of bubbles!  The palate has layers of crisp Granny Smith apples, raspberries and white cherries.  If you are serving dry cured ham this Easter, this sparkling is a perfect match.
'18 Blanc de Noirs Sparkling  $60
Handmade in the traditional sparkling method.  A nose of lightly toasted brioche and Granny Smith apples.  The palate is citrusy and vibrant with Meyer lemon zest and vanilla bean custard flavors.
