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. I will also share some wine tips with each episode.
2010 Argento Torrontes, Salta, Argentina $12
A real value, this aromatic wine is made with Torrontés, Argentina's signature white grape. Crisp, citrusy flavors make it an ideal pick to pair with spicy grilled shrimp, curry dishes, and fresh cheese.
2009 Merryvale Pinot Noir, Carneros, California $35
Packed with red berry fruit flavors, this is quintessential California Pinot. A silky texture combines with a kick of fresh acidity to make this a mouthwateringly alluring red. A perfect partner for broiled salmon or mushroom-laden pork loin.
