We have four wines for you to try this week.

JP Chenet Sauvignon Blanc 2013
More subtle than its New Zealand counterpart, Sauvignon Blanc from the south-west of France tends more toward a minerally style with herbal undertones. This wine is a fine example of those qualities: a refreshing, crisp taste, hints of watermelon and a lovely finish with fine acidity. Enjoy it with all light summer fare.
Penya Rosé 2013
From a tiny village in the Roussillon region of Southern France, 30 miles north of the Spanish border, Cases de Pene (Catalan spelling: “Penya”) produces a truly fine Rosé through its village Cooperative. Penya offers fresh aromas of Rainier cherries, a mix of fresh minty-herbal notes with floral fragrance, and hints of red raspberry and melon. Rich, full-bodied, and bright on your palate, Penya Rosé compliments cold cuts, hearty salads, and fish dishes.
Blend: 96% Grenache Noir and 4% Syrah.
Federalist Zinfandel 2014
For Zinfandel, there are few areas that can rival Lodi – it's been a specialty of the region since the 19th century. From Lodi, The Federalist Zinfandel is dark purple, dense and has supple tannins. Bright acidity and a long, smooth finish make this wine versatile and delicious, by itself or with your favorite summer meal. Blend: 93% Zinfandel, 7% Syrah
Dyamite Vineyards Red Blend 2013
Bold,medium-bodied and juicy, packed with dark fruit flavors, this mostly Merlot wine works well before dinner with sharp and pungent cheeses, and with dinner alongside (grilled or roasted) beef, pork, lamb and fowl. Fine taste; smooth finish!
Blend: 59% Merlot, 13% Syrah, 12% Zinfandel, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petite Sirah, 2% Malbec, 1,5% Cabernet Franc and 1.5% Petit Verdot
