Wines of the Month:

ACRE Chardonnay from Central Coast, CA

Winemaker Notes: This 2008 Chardonnay vintage was marked by two severe frosts in April and October.  As a result, the grapes yielded intense tropical fruit flavors.  On the smooth mouth filling palate, the wine’s juicy lemon zest and tropical fruit flavors melt into a long creamy finish.


ACRE Merlot from Central Coast, CA

Winemaker Notes:  This 2007 vintage was marked by a wet spring and temperate summer months, resulting in grapes being harvested in excellent condition at full ripeness.  This wine has fragrant black cherry, plum, rose petal, cola and sweet oak aromas and layers of sumptuous dark fruit flavors complemented by savory oak tones and a ripe, jammy finish.

Recipe for the Month

Wild Maine Blueberry Cobbler – serves 6

From Stonewall Kitchen

Ingredients –

butter to grease pan

2 pints blueberries or mixed berries or 2 (14oz) bags frozen blueberries (not defrosted)

grated zest of one lemon

1 jar     Stonewall Kitchen Wild Maine Blueberry Jam

½ tsp   cinnamon

2 cups  unbleached all-purpose flour

3 tbsp  sugar

1 tbsp  baking powder

½ tsp   salt

1 stick  unsalted butter, chilled and cut into pieces

½ cup  half & half or light cream

Directions –

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.  Butter a 2-3 quart heavy baking dish.
  2. Gently stir blueberries, lemon zest, Wild Maine Blueberry Jam and cinnamon together in a bowl.  Pour into prepared dish.
  3. Combine flour, 1 tablespoon of the sugar, baking powder and salt in a food processor and process briefly to blend.  Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal.  Pour in half & half and pulse just until dough begins to pull together.
  4. Remove dough from processor and knead briefly on a lightly floured surface to form a ball, adding more flour if dough is sticky.  Break pieces of dough from ball and cover berries with slightly flattened pieces of dough in a “cobbled” irregular pattern.  Sprinkle on remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar.
  5. Bake until crust is lightly browned and berries are hot, 25-30 minutes.  Remove from oven and let stand for at least 15 minutes before serving.  Serve with sweetened whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, or yogurt.
