Weekenders: A fairer season calls for softer wines

Published by at 5:06 PM under Uncategorized

2008 Chehalem Inox, Chardonnay, Oregon [$19.99]

Forget what you think you know about Chardonnay: this is not the buttery, overoaked stuff you’ll find at your local supermarket. Chehalem Inox is crisp. It’s sleek. It’s fruit forward with a perfectly textured finished. Fermented in steel (inox is short for the French inoxydable, or steel), Inox is everything you want your Friday night date to be: sexy, charming, rich and deep.

2007 Wine Guerrilla Zinfandel Dry Creek CA

As the days get longer and (hopefully) warmer, you’ll soon find yourself on your porch or alfresco at your favorite BYO. This wine, friends, is what you’ll want to bring. Silky and fruit forward with soft-tannic goodness, Wine Guerilla is the perfect cure to Seasonal Affective Disorder.
