Flavors of raspberry jam, pain grille, spice box and dark cherry are forward and succulent, thanks to the juicy acidity and flexible tannins. An herbal rose note surfaces on the midpalate, leading to a warm, persistent finish. Enjoy this with grilled salmon with a soy-ginger glaze.
A good effort from New Jersey’s Unionville, this delicate Chard offers harmonious flavors of tropical fruit and flowers, with a touch of spice to add complexity. Balanced acid keeps the wine clean and light.
This has a soft core that’s framed by citrusy acids, with an oxidative apple flavor that starts out with full steam, but loses some momentum on the midpalate. Try pairing this with crab cakes with a mild celeriac remoulade.
This Bordeaux blend from New Jersey has appropriate aromas and flavors of dark berry, cedar, tobacco and spice, but it lacks the dimension and muscularity that makes this type of blend memorable. Still, it’s a pretty wine and will pair well with numerous meat and fowl dishes.
