Discover Broadstone Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the personal favorites of our Sommelier here at We Ship Wine (and yes, we do have a Sommelier on staff) is a limited release Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon from the Sonoma County AVA known as Knights Valley called Broadstone. Broadstone was produced in a collaboration with the renowned Delectus Winery, famed for their Cabernets of epic distinction. With an elegant acidity, Broadstone opens with toasted walnut and deep black fruit aromas, followed by a balance of flavor including crushed black cherry, black pepper and deep chocolate notes. It's a luscious wine that is begging for a bold red meat such as a New York Strip or a juicy Petit Filet. Just add garlic butter and you can thank your wine enthusiast friends at We Ship Wine later, after you've thoroughly enjoyed your meal. When you shop Broadstone Knights Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, you can choose to simply buy the bottle or have it delivered in a crate, with a wine stopper… there are many ways to receive your wine. Broadstone also makes an excellent gift! Since cellaring is recommended for this wine, it's a perfect choice to bring to a collector on a special occasion, for example if they are hosting a party or celebrating a milestone.

Discover Chateau Montmore, A Lush & Luxurious North Coast Brut

Have you tasted Chateau Montmore's brut sparkler from California? Here it from our Sommelier herself! She writes, "Sonoma and Marin Counties are home to some amazing vineyards, especially in the world of sparkling wine, and Chateau Montmore is no exception. A blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, these vines are nurtured with cool foggy mornings and warm arid afternoons, making for a complex and flavorfully dry wine. Looking down into the glass, the wine has a light straw color with the slightest tinge of blush from the Pinot skins. It's truly a gorgeous color to look at. Clear and lovely with a fine bead, the Chateau Montmore is named for the Montmorency cherry. It's a soft-bodied brut, with delicate aromas of cherry blossom, honey and buttered brioche. On the palate, you'll taste flavors of sweet peach, apple and white cherries before you taste that flinty finish." We love Chateau Montmore. Not only is it a fabulous bottle to pop open on a special occasion, like New Year's Eve or a birthday party, but it's also a great every day sparkling to serve with brunch on a Sunday morning, served with eggs and French toast! Another fabulous category of dishes to serve with Chamapgne or Sparkling Wine are appetizers – especially ones that are salty, like smoked salmon mousse, croquettes, bacon-wrapped shrimp or more. Contrary to popular belief, Champagne and sweets (think strawberries) aren't actually that great of a pairing. But if you love it, go for it!

Discover Bridlemile Dundee Hills Willamette Valley Oregon Pinot Noir

If you are anything like us, one of your favorite wines to sip and collect are gorgeous Oregon Pinot Noirs. There is just something so special about a great Pinot from the Pacific Northwest. Our Sommelier at We Ship Wine describes Oregon Pinots as "having a more concentrated, fruit-forward, berry-rich flavor than most of the Pinot Noirs of California's Pinot regions. Oregon Pinots are more likened to French Pinots," she describes. "With a bit more graphite and less berry and floral notes, California Pinot Noir does not have the French nuances that carry through in Oregon Pinot. This is of course due to the cooler climate of the Willamette Valley and the Eola-Amity Hills in Oregon. Comparably, Oregon makes only a fraction of the amount of Pinot Noir that California produces. But as Oregon's wine growing region is actually on the same latitude line as Portland, Maine, the climate is chillier than the moderate warmer climates of California Pinot Noir growing regions. In Oregon, Pinot Noir grape vines are exposed to all four full seasons – cold winters, hot summers, wet springs and falls. Like France, Oregon sees much less sunshine that California does. This actually slows the ripening of the grapes, making for a lighter color and a more delicate body in the wine. A good rule of thumb to remember: the warmer the climate of the region, the faster the grapes will ripen, the bigger and bolder the wine. It sure does explain Chilean Malbec!"

A Note On Food Pairing From The Experts At We Ship Wine

Just as we said above, go for it. The world of wine is so intricate that there are a million flavor combinations when it comes to pairing. Try it out! If it works, fabulous! If it doesn't, look at you, learning wine lessons everywhere you go! Many people think that pairing Champagne and Sparkling Wine (or any wine for that matter) with food is very difficult, but this is truly not the case at all. The trick, which is no different than all wine, is to balance two things: the body and the sweetness. As long as you know to match bold wines with bold foods, for example, pasta and red sauce with an Italian red wine, and lighter foods with lighter-bodied wine, like poached chicken with light-bodied red or white wine, you'll be well on your way. Also, the spicier the food, the sweeter your wine should be. If you pair spicy food with dry wine, your meal will not be a pleasant experience! Dry wine, which is high in tannins, will exacerbate the heat of the spicy food, creating what could turn into a burning-hot meal. If you pair spicy food with sweet wine, the sweetness of the wine will detract from the heat of the meal, making both the heat of the dish and the sweetness of the wine all the more enjoyable. So just remember – hot food, sweet wine, like German Riesling, Moscato, Gewurztraminer, Sauternes, Muscadet, or even some Sauvignon Blanc. Heavy food, full-bodied wine, like Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Shiraz / Syrah, Merlot or Malbec. Lighter fare, lighter-bodied wine (which doesn't always mean white wine, like Pinot Grigio! There are many delicious light bodied reds including some Pinot Noir, Gamay, Nero D'Avola, Cinsault and many more. We Ship Wine will always have some great wine pairing recommendations with many of our labels, and we'll do our best to keep adding and updating as many as we can.
