Introducing Bianchi Wines from Paso Robles California. We had an opportunity to get some samples in for tasting recently so are thrilled to report what we love and how we paired them. There is so much yumminess in their wines!!

Let’s start with their Sauvignon Blanc from Monterey County, which is a lovely crisp and light choice for lighter dishes. With its stainless steel fermentation, you don’t get that buttery and vanilla flavors you’re more accustomed to with California Chardonnays.

A ceviche would be a great choice here although in lieu of that, we went for a seared ahi tuna and some fresh lemon from our garden. They also suggest a salad with grapefruit, one of my favorites and if you live in a warmer climate, it’s a perfect choice.

Chardonnay is by far my favorite white varietal, especially aged in oak. That said, I gravitate to Sauvignon Blanc or a Pinot Grigio when in Europe or South Africa. And so, it should be no surprise that I loved their 100% Chard from Santa Barbara County.

We drank this luscious Chardonnay with grilled salmon, a prawn appetizer mixed with avocado, and a green salad with beets, apples and string beans. Even though it was only aged for a year in French oak, there was a whole lotta butter on the palette, but also perfectly balanced. There were remnants of pineapple and apple as well – yum!! We wished we still had some of our crab from Cameron’s to eat with this scrumptious white.

Now, meet their Merlot (100% Merlot that is), which we poured with a homemade meatloaf recipe buried deep in one of my mother’s old recipe books since the turn of the last century. Yes really. Then there’s the Syranot, an unusual blend which has been aged two years in French oak — this wine would go well with a plate of cheese solo or even after a meal. In other words, perfect for entertaining.

We paired it with a T-bone and a simple salad – absolutely divine! Its boldness with cherries, raspberry, chocolate and black currant undertones had us at hello.

Needless to say, try a glass with some dark chocolate as well – oh so delish!

We also love their 2012 Petit Sirah for the upcoming holidays. Why? Imagine its rich bold flavor with homemade beef stew? It couldn’t be more perfect, especially on those cool nights if you happen to be in the Northern hemisphere this holiday season.

Think black plums, blueberries and boysenberrys — vanilla and molasses come through as well. Homemade bread is also a nice accompaniment.

Our favorites? The Chardonnay and the Cab, although truth be told, they were all delicious and at a great price point.

The Bianchi Wines estate vineyard is comprised of four different and distinct ranches. The 13 acre Lakeside Ranch has clay-loam soils, ideal for the ranch’s Cabernet Sauvignon, while the 19 acre Zen Ranch is comprised mainly of sandy loam where the Zinfandel thrives. The Creekside Ranch and Sunrise Ranch are host to Syrah and Merlot respectively.  Two thumbs up!
