Boundary Breaks 2016 ‘Ovid Line North’ Riesling with spicy chicken salad tonight. This is a delightful medium-dry wine from Finger Lakes, NY that pairs wonderfully with foods that have a smidgen of heat. Under $15, find it. Cheers! #Riesling #nywine #FLXWine #wine #winelover — 8 days ago
@GrupoMiolo 2013 Cuvée Giuseppe: This is an appealing blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from the producer’s top sites. The wine’s name honors its founder, Giuseppe Miolo, who arrived in Brazil in 1897 (from Italy) and started planting wine grapes. Profoundly aromatic, this wine is well-balanced and roundly textured, with notes of ripe plum, red currant, violet, cedar and Asian spices. A dusting of cocoa powder—along with a subtle grip of tannin—lingers on the medium-long finish. Consider this wine a very nice dinner companion. I did, with a savory meatloaf meal. #brazilianwines #Brazil #redwine #BrazilianWine #wine #winelover #myvinespot — 18 days ago
Chloe NV Prosecco (SRP $16): This Prosecco comes wrapped in a cute little bow, and will fit in most stockings (hint-hint). There are flavors of bright orchard fruits, floral tones, and citrus blossom. It’s light-hearted, fun to drink, and affordable—a good bottle to pour at your holiday or New Year's party. And the wine’s crispness and lively acidity makes it a perfect match for a variety of snack foods and appetizers. #Glera #Prosecco #Italian #wine #winelover #bubbly #sparklingwine — a month ago
@FetzerWine 2015 Eagle Peak Merlot ($10): Medium-bodied, supple, and streamlined—a round texture gives way to upfront flavors of purple stone fruit and black cherry, with trailing hints of mocha and toffee. There’s a dash of undergrowth on the finish. This is a nice bottle to pair with red sauce dishes, pizza night, a big bowl of chili (and cornbread for the win), or grilled burgers (beef or portobello). One thing's for certain, you can’t beat the price! #winestudio #wine #Merlot #MendocinoCounty #winelover — 8 days ago
@CasaValduga NV 130 Brut (SRP $32) Brazil is gaining recognition for their sparkling wines, and examples like this makes it is easy to see why. The story of Casa Valduga starts in 1875, when the first Italian immigrant from the Valduga family arrived in Brazil and planted a vineyard. Today, the fourth generation of the family runs the estate. This sparkler is made in the traditional method. It’s 100% estate-grown, composed of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir. Pale straw in color, it has a persistent, creamy mousse of bubbles with notes of dried stone fruit and bruised apple followed by white flowers and an appealing brioche character. Add a little pop to your next holiday gathering with this Brazilian beauty! #brazilianwines #Brazil #sparklingwine #sparkler #bubbly #BrazilianWine #wine #winelover #myvinespot — a month ago
@Pedroncelli 2012 Four Grapes: Fortified lip-smacking, deliciousness in this port-style wine from Pedroncelli Winery. This bottling represents the twenty-first vintage they’ve produced. It’s made from Tinta Madeira, Tinta Cão, Souzão, and Touriga Nacional—all estate grown. There are flavors of plums and dates alongside dried fruits and spicy richness—it’s medium-sweet but not sticky, balanced by a good kick of acidity. A great way to end a hearty meal, and priced at $20 for a 500ml bottle. Cheers! #PED90th #DryCreekValley #Sonoma #wine #winelover #myvinespot — a month ago
Rodney Strong 2014 Pinot Noir: Ruby colored, medium-bodied, and easy on the palate, with raspberry and cherry flavors. In the mouth, you’ll enjoy its freshness, and there’s some pepper and understated spicy oak influences on the finish. A solid, value-driven Pinot Noir that you should be able to find for under $20. #RussianRiverValley #Sonoma #PinotNoir #wine #winelover #myvinespot — 14 days ago

Vincent Dampt 2016 Petit Chablis (SRP $18): This is fun stuff to drink. It is bright, clean, and crisp, with a vibrant citrus tang alongside pleasing yellow-fleshed fruit flavors. It is lean and energetic in the mouth, with lively acidity making it a good wash down (just about) anything kind of wine. It makes me crave shellfish. #PureChablis #Chablis #Chardonnay #wine #winelover #myvinespot — a month ago
Unionville Vineyards 2013 Pheasant Hill Syrah ($32): It is easy to like this wine for it bright blackberry and tart cherry flavors. And then there’s rhubarb, a touch of earth, a dash of white pepper, and faint floral notes, all brighten with ample acidity. In the mouth, the wine is slender yet elegant, with streamlined texture and (soft) tannins that melt into a medium-long, vivid finish. This wine shows good structural qualities and would be a wonderful addition to any feast. There’s a splash of Viognier for good measure. Delicious estate-grown juice straight out of New Jersey. #FindThisWine #wine #njwine #NewJersey #Syrah #winelover #myvinespot #winestudio — 2 months ago
