($22 per glass)

DAOU Reserve 2020 Seventeen Forty (Paso Robles, California) $78.99/Bottle

This is a Cabernet Franc driven wine with a harmonious complement of Merlot.

Toasted brioche can be discerned beneath the herbal aromas of this quaff, a blend of Chandon sparkling wine and bitter liqueur made from Argentine-grown Valencia oranges. Tiny bubbles tickle the tongue while notes of blood orange and pomegranate flood the palate, generating just enough acidity to create a mouthwatering effect that’ll have you taking a second sip before setting down your glass. Garden Spritz pairs beautifully with spicy Asian food, sushi and sashimi, old cheddar, dried exotic fruits and nuts.
