Today is National Wine day! I don’t drink often but I do enjoy a nice glass of wine once in awhile. With the warmer weather slowly approaching, I’m craving summer nights with dinner outdoors. While we didn’t eat out tonight, I wanted to pop open a bottle with our meal. I had the perfect pairing with a bottle of Noble Vines 242 Sauvignon Blanc.
With it’s pale color, this wine held aromas of peach, honeydew and citrus. It wasn’t too powerful which I always tend to dislike with alcohol. We paired it with our teriyaki salmon dinner tonight. It enhanced out the flavors of the dish.
Noble Vines is cultivated in the red, cobblestone soils of James Ewart’s family-owned vineyards in Lodi and on the gentle slopes of the cool-climate San Bernabe vineyard in Monterey, California. They are a certified sustainable winery and vineyard. They have covered crops which protect them from insects, decrease pollution & minimizes erosion. They have been composting since the 1970s which is way before anyone even thought of doing it. Since they are such true believers in protecting their land and creating products that are “noble“. I can drink to that!
If you prefer a red, Noble Vines has a 337 Cabernet Sauvignon which is a full bodied wine, with flavors of blackberry, black cherry, oak and spicy black pepper. Or a Pinot Noir that has appealing aromas of black cherry, plum and oak. To learn more about Noble Vines Wine and where to purchase a bottle you can go to www.noblevines.com
