Daniel Giddings of Classic Wine imports introduces Cuvee to 5 great New-World wines inspired by Old-World classics.
Sip a Silverado Sauvignon
In the league of the California chardonnay that shocked the world and beat the French. Brings to mind (and mouth) great white Burgundy.
From Argentina and produced by Tuscan winemakers. Lettie Teague calls the Altos a “Malbec to watch out for”.
Alexander Valley Dry Creek Zinfandel is “big, brambly and aromatic” produced with “respect for tradition”.
This California blend is from Andy Erickson of Screaming Eagle fame but for thousands less a bottle (if you could get it!)
