2006 St. Supery Virtu

This popular Cali vineyard (obviously a fav of mine, too) is know for its blends of classic Bordeaux grape varieties, and this particular meritage white blends Sauvignon Blanc with Semillion. While is a bit fuller bodied for a white, you'll definitely score a few hint of mouthwatering fruits, like peaches and nectarines, and maybe a little taste of oak. Overall, its a very balanced wine that pairs nicely with spicy food.

Suggestion: Prep some tapas and invite a few friends over. Virtu is a great alternative to sugary margaritas on Mexican night!
