Signature Donn Chappellet Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Our go to pseudo sommelier and both bar tenders gave this one 2 thumbs up, while encouraging us to make this our 1st up vineyard next time we are in Napa. Perched high in the mountains, a super smooth, slightly jammy Jen is produced. That said, all I can think about is the beauty next to me…blessed — 17 hours ago

Domaine Pothier-Rieusset

Les Épenots Pommard 1er Cru Pinot Noir

Stellar Pinot with lots of fruit and acidity. Mild color change to light red tones. I was impressed with the body and depth of the wine. Decanted two hours before and it could have used a bit more time. Elegant and structured and it left a definite palate impression after consumption. Pothier was a master of his cellar and crafted very classic wines from his domain. 89pts. — 25 days ago

Blanco De Guarda White Blend 2013

Vintage 2013 | on advice of the sommelier, really good Spanish white from a combination of local old grapes, high acidity and thrilling minerality, paired with a pata negra with dried watermelon that was smoked afterwards | at restaurant Pollevie — 8 hours ago

Bodegas y Vinedos Ponce

P.F Manchuela Bobal 2019

Crunchy red fruit and black pepper. A very present but controlled damp soil character, that evolves into a crushed stone minerality in the background that brings dimension and a intriguing character to the nose.
An airy palate, yet with a grasping bite, plenty of pepper and a high freshness that penetrates the fruit and holds through a solid finish.
It manage the art of being easy to drink, yet with a gripping and tense structure as well as a good complexity that ask for your attention.
Drink it on the cooler side and it will serve you well as summer red. Nothing less than a bargain from the master of Bobal.

Saint-Joseph Vielles Vignes Syrah 2016

Another great wine from the master of Saint-Joseph with soaring aromatics that seem to leap from the glass showing lots of palate staining dark inky fruits along with notes of graphite, black olive, licorice, mineral, mocha & violet. — 2 days ago

Pegasus Bay

Main Divide Pinot Gris 2018

Vintage 2018 | Ooooph, this is an impressive wine: extremely expressive smell with spices and flint, well balanced taste with good concentration. The sommelier told that the wine comes from grapes harvested late from high vineyards. | Paired with langoustine and chanterelles | at restaurant Alma in Oisterwijk — 22 days ago

Okanagan Crush Pad

Shane Taylor Dilettante Garnet Valley Pinot Noir 2017

2017 vintage. Certified organic Pinot Noir grapes from Garnet Valley which is the highest plantings in the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia.
A nose of bright cherry, carrot tops and celery salt.
Ripe cherries and herbaceous qualities envelope your palette. Earthy and a bit smokey with crisp acidity on the finish.
This wine was built for grilled Pacific salmon or duck pizza.
In 2017 , Shane Taylor won British Columbia Sommelier of the Year. Every year’s winner is given the opportunity to make a wine with Okanagan Crush Pad Winery.
This is Shane’s legacy and a very nice wine.
