Wine Pairings
Adobe Reserva Sauvignon Blanc

Pair it with: An organic Chilean white

A terrific wine from Chile’s Casablanca Valley that’s a treat with this harvest salad. The nose is incredibly herbaceous with touches of green grass and citrus. In the mouth you’ll find a bright, crisp green-apple character.
Our pick: Adobe Reserva Sauvignon Blanc, Chile, $13.
