Carol Shelton is a Santa Rosa winemaker who specializes in really great Zinfandels. However, I'm also a huge fan of her white wines, --- especially Carol Shelton Coquille Blanc 2010 ($15.99).

If you regularly read this blog or my Drink column in City Weekly, you know that I’m a sucker for Rhone-style white-wine blends such as the Tablas Creek wine I highlighted last week. Well, before summer disappears on us, here's another really great warm-weather sipper that hits all the right notes.

Coquille Blanc is a Grenache Blanc/Roussanne/Viognier combo with gorgeous white-peach and pear aromas and exotic fruit flavors on the palate, with hints of almond and honeysuckle.

This is a very versatile wine that will pair beautifully with a wide range of foods, but especially pork and chicken dishes. Interestingly, I tried it recently with clam chowder and it totally rocked!
