Insight: Kushman By The Bottle


0409 Kushman By The Bottle

In the next installment of Kushman by the Bottle. Capital Public Radio’s resident wine expert Rick Kushman joins us to talk about corkage fees.

  • 2012 Napa Valley Chardonnay (in the $25 range, depending on the store). It will make Chard drinkers of every type happy. It’s rich and luxurious, but still finishes light and fresh.
  • 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet (in the $35 range). This Cab reminds you why Napa is Napa. It’s got depth and balance and a silkiness that comes from great fruit and good winemaking. I use it for some tastings and people think it’s a Cab that costs at least double the price.
