Hacienda Zargon Chardonnay
Winemaker Notes: 100% Chardonnay. Stainless steel fermentation is followed by 3 months of ageing on the lees, giving the wine richness and mouth-feel. The 2013 is characterized by fresh apple and peach notes and tropical flavors.
Hacienda Zargon Syrah
Winemaker Notes: Intense, very deep purple hue. Powerful on the nose, with red fruit and some herbal notes. Pleasant and honest. Smooth and intense on the palate. Good balance and structure. Meaty and powerful. Fantastic with braised meats or Bolognese sauce.

Grafton 2 Year Aged Cheddar
From the Grafton Village Cheese Co. in Vermont.
