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)
From the Columbia Valley wine region in Washington state, this sweet Riesling features a torrent of fresh fruit flavors that will please any lover of the varietal. On the nose, you’ll find notes of green apple, tangerine, lemon and lime, followed by fresh peach and nectarine on the palate. With balanced sweetness and acidity, think spicy for your food pairings. $21.99 from Bright Cellars
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
From the McBride Sisters winery
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
This California Pinot Grigio is a very good crisp white wine. Slightly sweeter than the Italian version but really appropriate for the warm weather. Melon, grapefruit flavors that pop when its slightly lower than room temperature. Chilled takes away the flavor so take your choice.
This wine was a gift from a friend that we exchanged wines. He has very expensive taste. lol, this is a Pinot Noir from France. Coming from one of the most expensive, rich region of Burgundy. Here are some notes:
- 100% Pinot Noir, on clay, marl and limestone rocks.
- Aged for one year on average, followed by several months in vats to stabilize the wine before bottling.
- Brilliant ruby robe, raspberry. A striking nose, with an aroma of red fruit, blackcurrant. Fresh on the palate, with peppery notes
La Fussiere is a large Premier Cru vineyard at the very southern end of the Cote d'Or, within the Maranges appellation. It is located on the south-facing vineyard above the village of Dezize-les-Maranges, and is planted mainly to Pinot Noir with a small amount of Chardonnay as well
The Equalizer is medium to full-bodied with a fruit-forward character. The 2015 Equalizer Red Blend is deep purplish to ruby in color. Its nose has plenty of blackberry, black cherry, baking spice and vanilla notes that are both intense yet elegant.
This Tempranillo is produced with only 100% Tempranillo, the Spanish red wine grape that is as noble and historic there as the sport of bullfighting, this a young and bright un-oaked version shows the real essence of Tempranillo in its youthful state: fresh cherry and red berry fruit on the nose, with a palate that is classically soft, silky and savory and has hints of sweet fruit, easy acidity and gentle tannins.
