KENEFICK RANCH Sauvignon Blanc, Napa Valley Calistoga, 2013
This 14.1% alcohol, 100% Sauvignon Blanc (all estate grown in Calistoga’s “Palisades" area) was fermented and aged seven months on its lees in neutral oak barrels (no new wood). Pale-gold-straw in color with green highlights and well formed legs; dry, medium-bodied with fresh acidity. Delicious, spicy, ripe Sauvignon Blanc offering mixed citrus and tropical fruit with a hint of stone fruit and a pop of mineral and virtually no grassiness. Very close in style and quality to next door neighbor Araujo’s Sauvignon Blanc but at half the price. YUM. Great fish wine. Spec’s Score: 92.
Denmark’s Finest Creamy Havarti
Denmark’s most famous cheese, this is a deliciously mild, very creamy, all-natural, semi-soft cheese. It is aged for three months and is very different from regular Havarti. It’s made with the same recipe, which uses highly pasteurized cow’s milk, but it is then enriched with extra cream. Pairs well with Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir or a nice Rioja wine. 8oz
Ingredients2 oz coconut rum
3 tbsp frozen lemonade
1 ½ cups ice
Lime wedge for garnish
DirectionsPlace ice, lemonade and rum in a blender.
Blend until slushy and pour into a glass.
Garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy!
