Check, Please! Bay Area’s fourth season episode 8 (#408) profiles and reviews these three Bay Area restaurants:
My 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.
2006 Grotta del Sole, Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio, Italy
Hailing from an area east of Naples (the name of the appellation means “tears of Christ”), this crisp yet earthy white wine will transport you to Italy with a single sip.
2005 Canis Major Zinfandel “Perotti Vineyard,” Dry Creek Valley, California
By Mutt Lynch winery, this fruit bomb of fun is packed with a peppery punch. Pour alongside barbeque ribs slathered in spicy sauce.
2005 Judd’s Hill Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, California
This is a medium-bodied Cab with smoothness and lush, ripe, fruit flavors. Drink with veal chops topped by mushrooms for a delicious treat.
