Word of the show is soireé.

Debra’s Picks & Pairings: 259d6624dd9d2f6aba0416c942d72f76

2013 Cascade Cliffs Nebbiolo – This bottle is just screaming of those earthy fruits like fig and date. Divinely de-lish Piedmont style wine! Smooth finish.

Pair it with some polenta finger foods like these Mushroom Polenta Squares with Caramelized Mushrooms. (PIN IT)

Kelly’s Picks & Pairings: baf46afc4bc5abb09c25ae2ce9827b0f

Lodi Cabernet 2012 – Black fruit, jammy. Do I sense a hint of chocolate? Delicious! This wine is seriously going to sweep you off your feet.

Pair it with Cherry BBQ Baby Back ribs. They type the meat falls away from the bone. With a delicious cherry glaze.   (PIN RECIPE)
