Ana's top-notch Tempranillo is intensely fruity and flush with plump berry flavors, like taking your pick of the juiciest fruit from bushels of blackberries, cherries and plums, all topped off with a delicate touch of mocha from a year of barrel-aging in fancy French oak.

This Sauvignon Blanc from California is a little fruitier than it is in France, and a little lighter in body and color than a typical Chardonnay.  This very different wine has great notes and flavors of Pears, melons and green apples

Perry Mason (HBO)

We were pretty stoked to sit down and see this beloved legal detective drama we use to watch staring Raymond Burr. Now that HBO took a stab at it. We wanted to see if it was worth the watch.

Legal drama set in 1932 Los Angeles and based on novels and short stories penned by Erle Stanley Gardner

Very interesting California Barbera,  This one runs more on the soother feel but not as tannic.  Blackberry flavors greet you with this wine also with an earth smell that reminded me of a Cabernet Franc.
Bright Cellars group of wines.  20 far 2 for 2 ($23.00 price point)

Nice melon and buttery feel to this Chardonnay.  The buttery feel is light and the oak doesn't take a front seat to the introduction to this nicely priced and pretty flavorful wine from the Miller Brothers.  great $8.99 price point as well from Naked wines.

A complex, well-crafted and inviting wine that shows tobacco and vanilla bean notes alongside generous plum, raspberry, and blackberry. The ripe and juicy mouth offers the chocolate cherry flavors typical of Merlot blend with the peppery spice of Cabernet to round out the full body. The finish is bold, gripping, and invites another sip. $24.99

2017 Gen5 Ancestral Red

This soft but full-bodied wine smells like maple syrup and brown sugar and tastes ripe, almost sweet, due to low acidity and plenty of oak treatment
