Back at the winery, Chef Pilar Sanchez will pair wines with some of the dishes she created in her Grokker Premium video Taste of Napa series.

Cooking Recipe

Pairing a Merlot-based red blend with grilled lamb chops - - and arugula salad -

Pairing a Cabernet Sauvignon with pork -

Pairing a Sauvignon Blanc with a dried fruit compote and fresh goat cheese -

2009 Stornoway Red Blend:
The Merlot-based Red Ben is quite delicate and silky on the palate. Effortless layers of fruit take shape nicely in the glass. Red currants, raspberries, crushed flowers, sweet spices and French oak are all nicely layered into the nuanced, vinous finish.

2009 Cabernet Sauvignon:
A gorgeous balance of fruit acidity and tannin. All the elements fall into place with this effortless Cabernet. Dark red berries, spices and flowers lead to a creamy, textured finish.

2009 Sauvignon Blanc:
Subtle aromas of toasted brioche and vanilla bean. Soft flavor of summer melon and citrus caramel followed by a hint of coriander spices.
