This bottle is like my favorite treats in my Easter basket. Sweetarts & chocolate covered cherries. Maybe a little tobacco… which was in dads easter basket 😉
Wine X Says: a mouthful of XX. Gulp!
Great, easy drinking wine that you need to grab when you can find it. For people that don’t like overly oaked Chards, this is a great bottle. A little lime, pineapple, smidge of oak.
Zesty Zingy gimme more

Another easy drinking, lush and bold pinot from Loring. Not as big and bold as some, but maybe a little more balanced and refined. Easy to love
Lebron in a Tux.. All class. Come sit at my table, man.

We’ve had a chance to try a few wines from The J Wilkes brand. We never been let down before and this bottle didn’t dissappoint either.

Want a wine for Meatball Monday? Seems like a bold Italian is the only way to go. We love other Felsina bottles and so this one was an easy grab
Tart plum and blueberries, dry and big on the finish.

Cline is one of those Uber relaiable quality-price-ratio brands. Here’s how I end up with Cline- out driving, decision on dinner, end up picking a BYOB restaurant, but not remembering to bring a bottle ….. finding a supermarket and scanning….Cline!! Easy pick.
Here’s the thing – Cline is always goo…[Read more]

Heard about these little gems. Wasn’t so sure but seriously surprised. Wish I’d tried them in the heat of the summer but i love SB so I guess it doesn’t matter

So Im going to admit my odd relationship with Torrontes, the wine i totally blew in a most public fashion during my CMS 1 Som Testing weekend. Dude next to me got it. I stumbled like a clueless dweeb trying to do the Urkel for the first time.
This one is a really nice example of a typical…[Read more]
Nickel & Nickel
Bright fresh teen fuits, a hint of spice and maybe eucalyptus and soft tobacco. Drink this one slowly….. heavier pours for your good friends and lighter pours for the rest

Old Napa name, from a low volume year. Lots going on with this wine. Warmed red fruit, mint, white pepper and butterscotch
Sunday dinner at Gramma’s. Delicious and memorable.

eeeeeEEEEEEEeeeeee. I’m not ashamed to say I like the locations series because they push into some interesting areas, rethinking rules of blending. The E 5 is no excpetion, sourcing a range of grapes from across Spain, and spanning vintages such that this bottle gets a NV. Pull the cork and you’ll get deep purple, joe and baked red and bla…[Read more]
Really a fun bottle. Super approachable with nice dark fruit, white pepper, and an absence of raisin that lets this well crafted wine pair with a huge range of foods.
Nanny nanny boo boo, my glass is better that yours is

Dark, Jammy, Chewy and tart. Really nice drinker that if you brought to a dinner and left with the host, they’d be texting you thanks when they finally open it.

Interesting Bordeaux blanc. Staw color, nose of mango and tropical citrus maybe even a little green pineapple, something clean and floral like some white jasmine. Mild white grapefruit with some sweet tangelo.

I love SB I do.
This one is prefect for pasta in a robust chicken stock base. just delicious with enough backbone to handle the compound butter you’ll want to swirl into your sauce
Meyer lemon, grapefruit, dash of white peach without the sweetness, lemongrass. Balanced and aromatic

Fun tasting this venerable fav among the QPR crowd.
like running into a runway model in disguse at H&M . Bright, fun and down to earth, and delightfully not the bad kind of hot. Love to see you again…..
