I recently cracked open a different kind of treat from my friend, Jill Matthiasson...jam. I'm a huge fan of the Ribolla-Girolla-based Matthiasson White (I'm drinking the 2008 tonight) and am lucky to have a few bottles of the Red Hen Merlot in my cellar for special treats. This Raspberry Peach Jam was made from the Red Hen property's fruit trees and berry bushes, and was such a great surprise. It has just the right amount of lemon to cut the sweetness of the peaches and raspberries. I can only hope Jill sells it on her website or to the Wine Club next year. She and Steve have been working on a blog lately. Here's the link. Also, seek out their wines, which are getting more widely available in the Bay Area. I found some 2010 White at Vintage Berkeley on College Avenue yesterday.
