I love learning and sharing all things wine. I travel for beaches, food and the wines that pair with each! To friends and colleagues, I am the go-to Wine Girl...
Herbaceous and farmy with sulfuric undertones on the nose. An interesting sauv to come out of Marlborough, in light of the late grassiness in the nose characteristics that evolves into green bell pepper. Lime hits the palate back in the upper throat. Strikingly clean crisp tart yet creamy foamy oceanic wave of lime. Saltiness akin to margaritas yet I'm suddenly craving yellowtail sashimi after a day of surfing, even though I don't surf! Lengthy and intense, this is a foody's sushi wine on a beach day! — 4 days ago
Blackberry cherry clove spills over the glass and into the air. Blackberry-infused tobacco and leather chew up the fruit in an earthy cherry mouthcandy. Astringent clean finish.
Enjoyed in Fleetwood's on Front in Lahaina, Maui. — 21 days ago
I'd love to spritz myself with this lovely gardenia perfume. Tastefully florally aromatic with rain-kissed buds and tender leaves. Hints of island vanilla spice. Soft caramel oaking with a long slow finish.

Gorgeous rosey peach hue. Honeyed peaches and strawberry over vanilla pudding entice the nose at first swirl. Tart strawberries and watermelon transition to flavors of fresh squeezed lemons in a bone dry finish. Crisp and refreshing and welcoming the catch of the day. Yes! NOT frozay rozay brunch juice. — 4 days ago
Heavily oaked nosed with strawberries and cherries, with afternotes of forest leaves. I'd suddenly love to have cherried s'mores by the summer fire! Incredible light and clarity. Palate in coordinance with bouquet. Earthed in a way unexpected for the region. Delicious and earthed to compete with Willamette. Long long finish with high acidity and striking abundance. Makes me want to dance in the rain. — 7 days ago
Tart appley yet petrolic nose. Smells like dancing through a rainy granny apple orchard on a crisp fall morning! Refreshing lemon delight! Beautiful forward astringency and minerality that finishes delicately and softly floral, a surprisingly whispered closure for such bright opener. Clean with delightful complexity.
Pairs beautifully with Indian cuisine... or with turkey dinner! — 5 days ago
