Jayson by Pahlmeyer Sauvignon Blanc 2019
The 2019 Jayson by Pahlmeyer Sauvignon Blanc reveals bright pear and white peach aromas with tropical notes of pineapple and hints of fresh cut flowers. The palate is clean and focused, with crisp green apple notes and a rich, round palate with wet stone on the lingering finish. Balanced acidity makes this wine a perfect pair for oysters, crab cakes, or lobster bisque. The Jayson 2018 Sauvignon Blanc also pairs beautifully with a wedge of triple crème brie. 90 Points Wine Enthusiast.

Mutt Lynch FouFou le Blanc 2019$19.00
It’s all about the fruit. For her “Dog Series” wines, Brenda has one goal in mind – create fruit-forward wines with varietaly true aromatics, mid palate weight and flavor, and a medium to full-bodied, balanced finish. Brenda sources her fruit from a variety of appellations within California always letting the quality of the fruit drive her selections. Her travels always seem to have stops in beach towns for a cold beer at the local pub, which she claims are an equally important part of her winemaking! The Mutt Lynch 2019 Fou Fou Le Blanc shows a brilliant straw yellow color in the glass and opens to delicate aromas of melon and citrus. Crisp and fresh with the balance and structure our white wine fans have come to love, the 2019 Fou Fou Le Blanc Sauvignon Blanc will be welcomed as another standout release. The mid palate flavors of melon, pear and citrus are delicate and elegant. Near perfect acidity gives it the structure that delivers a clean and fresh finish.100% stainless steel, she lets the fruit speak (or bark) for itself. Pair this lovely wine with your favorite recipe for any white fish like sole or flounder and you can’t go wrong. As the label reads… She’s amazing, she’s eccentric, some might even say barking mad! That’s Fou Fou le Blanc!
