Kevin Judd Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Wonderful as always! Grapefruit, lemon, kiwifruit, hints of tropical fruits, big acidity, grass & minerals. Balance is spot on! — 2 days ago

Villa Maria

Taylors Pass Single Vineyard Chardonnay 2019

Delectable Wine
9.2

A supple and pure Chardonnay with delicate fruit reminiscent of sweet nectarine, fig and citrus. Wild yeast, barrel fermentation and time on lees have imbued the wine with additional layers of texture and savory, oatmeal-like flavors, but the winemaking does not dominate the fruit. The creamy midpalate is given definition on the lengthy finish by a racy line of citrus-like acidity. (Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous, November 2020) — 13 days ago

Lytton Estate Dry Creek Valley Primitivo Carignan 2016

Blackberry preserves, sweet tobacco & cured meat. Full & complex entrance but disappearing quickly from there. Medium tannins and acidity with ripe & juicy raspberry on the palate. — 4 days ago

Adelaida Vineyard Grenache Blanc Blend 2019

First time trying👍🏼
Definitely buying more

Winery Notes: "Blend: 77% Grenache Blanc, 18% Picpoul, 5% Rousanne. This is our second Adelaida Vineyard bottling. Paso Robles is the epicenter of new Rhone plantings in California. We are fortunate to be able to source grapes from Adelaida Vineyards, who planted grenache blanc, roussanne, viognier and picpoul blanc among other more established varieties such as grenache noir, syrah and mourvedre (or mataro). Their vineyard lies on the limestone hills of the Adelaida District, thirteen miles from the Pacific coast. Warm days, cool nights and balanced vines promote great acidity in the grapes. Fermentation: Whole-cluster pressed. Natural primary finished February 2020, and secondary finished by April 2020. Barrels: 88% barrel aged in air-dried American oak barrels; 8% new, 9% three-year-old; 61% four-year-old, 10% five-year-old, 12% six-year-old. 12% concrete tank aged. Aging: Eight months in barrel."

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

From the Haro-Lumia Taster’s Dozen. Subtle, caressing, yet bursting with melon, citrus, and lime. Mouthwatering and leaves you wanting more. Amazing effort. A WS Top 100 and well deserved. — 14 hours ago

The Kings Wrath Pinot Noir 2016

Vintage 2016 / The obviousness of this Pinot Noir: frivolous smell, but also stinking (positive) like walking into a horse stable. A taste that seems middle of the road, although I call it elegance. Good partner of my venison steak and grilled vegetables. — 18 days ago

Lehigh Valley Cabernet Franc 2018

Who knew they made great wine in the Lehigh Valley? This is the top grape in the region according to the producer. Shockingly good. Ripe berries, delicious soil, and well balanced. Will be buying again. Thanks to Peggy @ Earth for hooking it up. A very nice first Pennsylvanian wine for me. — 3 days ago

Marlborough Pinot Noir 2013

Cute and classy label. Darker color than a lotta pinot noir out there. Aroma is nice. Ripe berries from cool places (say coastlines and mountain tops). That classic cherry cola of Pinot. Flavors are nice and bright. Tincture of medicinal plants (echinacea and\or elderberry), iron in red meat served rare, pie cherry, or even choke cherry. Nice long finish with some of that woods after a forest fire or peat bogs in the sun. It’s a very nice, dry and balanced Pinot with elegance. — 3 days ago
