North Coast Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Over 30 years ago, Tim Murphy, Dale Goode and Dave Ready founded their 3-family partnership in 1985 & launched the brand with two wines: estate grown Fumé Blanc and Chardonnay. Pale lemon with crisp aromas of citrus fruits, blend of 96% Sauvignon Blanc & 4% Semillon. On the palate flavors of crisp fruit apple, peach & melon. Medium finish, lively acidity ending with citrus character. Nice value. — 5 months ago

The Dreaming Tree

Crush California Red Blend 2019

An exciting collaboration between my favorite singer, Dave Matthews and an award-winning wine maker Sean McKenzie. " This wine pulls you in with notes of smokey berry and a pop of raspberry jam". Very enjoyable and reasonably priced wine — 6 months ago

Orin Swift

Slander California Pinot Noir 2018

I am a big fan of David Swift Phinney wines. In 1998 David founded Orin Swift Cellars; Orin is his father’s middle name and Swift is his mother’s maiden name. Aged 10 mos in French oak, 42% new, Ruby with complex aromas of fresh fruits, floral and herb spice, nice mouthfeel. On the palate flavors of raspberry and cherry with cacao and hints of pepper spice. Rich full chewy tannins, well balanced on long finish ending with fruit and earthy spice. — 3 months ago

Dave Harvey Sweetish Fish Riesling

Best wine from this promo box I got. Hands down the best. Goes down like apple juice, but in good way. Like the way you wish all wine would. Enjoyed this wine while chowing down on a frozen California Pizza Kitchen’s BBQ Chicken Pizza with Charlie’s Angels (2000) playing in the background. Definitely recommend. — 5 months ago
