leslie sbroccoMy name is Leslie Sbrocco and I’m the host of Check, Please! Bay Area. Each week, I will be sharing my tasting notes about the wine the guests and I drank on set during the taping of the show.

Wines of the Week: KQED Wine Club
Our guests enjoyed these two delicious offerings from the KQED Wine Club. Tonight’s wines highlight the beauty of wines from the Golden State. Join the club!

2006 Chesebro “CM Ranch” Roussanne, Carmel Valley, California
Roussanne has gained fame as one of the rare white grapes of France’s Rhone Valley. When grown in California, it gains a richness reflecting the Golden State’s love affair with the sun. A mélange of apricot fruit notes and nutty aromas make it a unique white in which to indulge your senses.

2005 Skylark Syrah, Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County, California
If you like your reds flexing their muscles, then this smoky, concentrated Syrah is for you. Hearty, plush, and intense, Skylark is a sexy wine that will raise your decadent quotient sky high.

Special Wine
2006 Edge Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, California
This is a stylish Cabernet hailing from Napa that showcases its pedigree without showing it off. Floral aromas and dark berry flavors are wrapped with a silky texture.

    I liked this episode, however I was very offended by the male reviewer’s comments about Zeni and about Ethiopian food and culture in general. His comment about injera appeared borderline xenophobic and though I am not a beer drinker, his comments about beers from other countries being inferior to even the worst of U.S. beers seemed extremely Eurocentric.

    PBS is a wonderful organization and views such as his seem extremely inappropriate and a complete turn off.
