Wines of the Week: KQED Wine Club
Our guests enjoyed some of these delicious offerings from the KQED Wine Club.
2009 Loredona Pinot Grigio, Monterey California
When Pinot Grigio meets plush, you have Loredona. Not lean and green, this peach-scented white is fleshy yet still fresh. A poolside sipper.
181 Merlot Lodi, California
Merlot’s signature is smoothness and this well-priced red is supple. Stock up on it as a complement to dishes from lamb to pasta or cheese to chocolate.
