Ch. BIBIAN, Haut Medoc, 2010
From Listrac in the western Haut Medoc area between Margaux and St. Julien comes this blend of 60% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, and 5% Cabernet Franc. It is fermented using pump-over and aged 12 months in all French oak barrels (40% new). Red-purple in color with well formed legs. Dry, medium-bodied with freshly balanced acidity and medium-plus phenolics; it is elegant and balanced. In the mouth, this is a red and some black fruit-oriented classic claret offering tobacco leaf, spice, and gravelly-dusty terroir along with the freshness of Merlot grown on clay. Made in a more modern style with none of the earthy funk sometimes associated with the western part of the Haut Medoc. Classic accompaniment to steaks, lamb, or fowl. Spec’s Score: 91
Red Apple Smoked Mozzarella
Red Apple Smoked Mozzarella Cheese is 100% all-natural cow’s milk cheese. It is slowly, naturally and meticulously cold-smoked for 6 hours using a special aged apple pulp and hardwood to achieve its unique flavor. It is National Grilled Cheese Month and this is a great reason to try this smoked mozzarella! Its bold, smoky flavor pairs well with the sweet flavor of roasted tomatoes, so try a grilled cheese sandwich with these two. Wonderful with a nice Rosso or White Zinfandel wine.
