No Problem Too Small

With these simple steps, you'll be a regular Mr. or Ms. Ignore-It-And-Hope-It-Goes-Away in no time.

First, identify a problem. Any problem will do. Is your shower head leaking? Perhaps your car's oil needs changing? Maybe your washing machine is on the fritz. If you're having trouble, don't be afraid to broaden the definition of "problems."  An unidentifiable rash given to you by an ex-lover or soul-crushing job dissatisfaction will work, too.

Next, break out your Toolbox Mixed White Wine Case and choose which wine will best address the problem you are currently experiencing. If the job calls for crisp brightness and a full mouth feel that features the scents of passion fruit, honey, pear and citrus on the nose, you'll want one of your six bottles of 2009 Toolbox Pinot Grigio. If a more balanced taste of sugars and acids is needed, or if you just happen to have oysters or shellfish around, consider using the 2008 Toolbox Sauvignon Blanc. Aren't sure which is best? The tried and true "eeny, meeny, miny, moe" method should help, though many would suggest just closing your eyes and picking one at random.

Finally, find a sunset, a good book, or video of playful kitties, sit down in a comfortable chair, and have some wine, for Pete's sake. Geez, you worry too much. Who cares about a stupid faucet or rash, anyway? Well, sure, maybe you should get the rash looked at by a professional, but that's tomorrow. Or the next day. Or maybe even the day after that.

2008 Toolbox Sauvignon Blanc, Dry Creek Valley 750ml 6-Pack

A 2008 SB? That's the point…not standard or typical for this varietal but Toolbox Wines feel this wine over delivers, their true mission to craft a wine similar in style to Sancerre, this fruit was sourced just north of the Russian River AVA, but you'd think it's from France – classic in style. The vineyard is on the valley floor where the morning fog creates a damp atmosphere. This allows longer hang time, enhancing the flavors while balancing the sugars and the acids. The soils from this region release great minerals and an almost steel like quality to the fruit. This is 100% Sauvignon Blanc and is a true reflection of the best of the Dry Creek appellation. With the aromas of ocean grass dunes, it is crisp and with a finish that just begs for oysters and shellfish.

2009 Toolbox Pinot Grigio, Clarksburg 750ml 6-Pack

Clarksburg is southwest of Sacramento. The summer temperatures climb into the 90’s but a soft breeze off of the Delta cools the nights into the 50’s, balancing the fruit as it struggles each day to build more sugars before the evenings cool down. This area is known for the honeyed quality it gives to the white grapes grown there.  The aromas from this wine are simply foreplay for how good this is going to be in your mouth.  This wine was done 100% in stainless steel and it maintains a crisp, brightness while still yielding a full mouth feel. Look for aromas of passion fruit, honey, pear and citrus.  The lingering finish makes this a satisfying wine all by itself.  With fruit and cheese to start or poured over grilled pound cake to finish, this wine will enhance any dining experience.
