Le Pich
Cabernet Sauvignon
$38 per bottle

Lately, I’ve been enjoying the Napa Valley cabernet sauvignon from Purlieuís sister label, Le Pich (a Wappo Indian word meaning "golden eagle"). This wine displays great Napa character, dusty and rich in fruit. It is classic in the best sense of the word.

The winemaking team is all-star. Winemaker Julien Fayard has worked at famed Bordeaux estates such as Lafite-Rothschild and Smith Haut-Lafite. Julienís impressive resume continues in California with Dalle Valle, Lail, Gemstone and Atelier Melka as Director of Winemaking. The other half of the team is equally notable. Vineyard manager Steve Matthiason has worked with Robert Sinskey, Long Meadow Ranch, Araujo and has his own label.

Purlieu wines have a sense of place and are made by people who are passionate not only about the terroir they work with but the wine they create. Try the Cabernet Sauvignon with BBQ steaks and some smokey cheese.

Rogue River Creamery
Smokey Blue
$40 per pound

Rogue River Creameryís Smokey Blue is probably my favorite smoked cheese. Itís good by itself but great in a Cobb salad. The cheese is smoked over hazelnut shells at a very low heat that gently incorporates the smokey smell. It is then aged at least six months and happens to be vegetarian friendly. Try it warmed on good bread with a little honey, melted over your favorite steak or, my favorite, in a Cobb salad.
