The Château de Berne, AOC Côtes de Provence, Rosé is a blend of 70% Grenache Noir 30% Cinsault.
The nose is complex with delicate aromas of cherry and raspberry and light unexpected notes of mint and herbs like anise.
On the palate this is an exquisite dry wine first, a rosé second. Lean with flavors of cranberry and raspberry accented by an elegant mineral finish from the limestone of the terroir. A truly elegant Provençal rosé!

This refreshing Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc shows lifted notes of black currant leaf and fresh herbs. The palate is crisp and fresh and finishes with a flinty mineral note typical of the Seaview Vineyard.

This Chardonnay from Domaine Belleville in Burgundy, France has a light gold color with aromas of white flowers and a touch of minerality on the nose.
In the mouth it is a clean and fresh example of Chardonnay with lemon and exotic fruits notes. Nice balance and very long finish. Harmonious and elegant.
Aged 12 months in French oak; 35% new barrel.
$70 restaurant; $14 wholesale
This wine from the Niagara Bench in Ontario, Canada is a Côte de Beaune-style Chardonnay that has been barrel-fermented with wild yeast in 15% new French oak (the rest 1-5 years old), then blended and aged for 18 months.
It has an incredible focus, the typical Niagara florality, and the silky, rich mouthfeel and taut minerality of a wine with a much higher pedigree - and price! 2013 was a year of beautiful natural ripeness, with focused flavors and a long, mineral finish.
$75 restaurant; $15 wholesale
Structured with a strong mineral character, this is a full rich wine. Its density comes from the fermentation in stone "lagars" giving richness and opulence. Barrel aging has added to the smoothness that is balanced by the intense acidity of the black currant fruits at the end.
Blend: Touriga Nacional (50%), Tinta Roriz
(30%), Alfrocheiro (15%), Jaen (5%)

This is a stunning example of the classic Rhone Valley blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre.
Lifted raspberry and cherry aromas are accented by dried rosemary and thyme in this savory yet charming wine. Ripe black-fruit flavors are fleshy and mouth filling but balanced neatly against fresh acidity and complexities of leather and forest floor. Ripe, persistent tannins linger on the finish.
This is a BIG wine that will stand up to a hearty meal.

A 40-yard dumpster filled to the top. The Conservation Corp team collected a truck load of scrap metal and tires plus a truck of e-waste. AHIA collected 3.5 buckets holding 3.5 gallons of household batteries. It was a hot muggy day and the AHIA Board and family members worked hard.

Perhaps this fall there can be a balance between physical distancing and the the CV-19 pandemic for a time to re-plant the Manila Median. AHIA has successfully partnered with Public Works and the 3rd District Office to begin preparing the median for replanting. Stumps have been ground, irrigation lines have been repaired and irrigation timers have been re-set. When the time comes we will need Alamitos Heights volunteers to help.

"The clearest message that we get from this 75-year study is this: Good relationships keep us happier and healthier. Period" says Robert J. Waldinger the current head of this study.
