Orange and natural. Tastes like watermelon 🍉. Pleasant finish, like a tart rind. One of the better efforts I’ve had from this winery. — 2 months ago

Strawberry and watermelon on the nose. Easy drinking for a warm day! Great value. Found when living in Gig Harbor! — a month ago

Catoctin Creek

Meritage Blend 2012

Breaux for the win! Sourced from Hillsboro each year, this has that classic “West side of the ShortHills” Merlot character. While being a bit linear and simple, this basement-made hobby wine is well done by Mr. Hanna :) — a month ago

Život Teče Merlot Blend 2016

we enjoy this very pleasant, light and yet expressive, dry wine. Notes of cherry and mocca. Thanks to Mr. Mršić who made this possible, that one like me, Weinzahn, explores a new wine country. Great experience. — 2 months ago

Robert Biale Vineyards

R.W. Moore Vineyard Zinfandel 2010

Nose has charred cherry, dried blackberry, dehydrated cranberry, old wet leather, dried blueberries, saturated cedar plank and crushed fresh blueberries.

Palate has ripe/dried blueberries, light creamy oak, dark chocolate, dried strawberry, strawberry jam, rioevblackberry, violets and wet garden soil.

Finish is forever, tannins are velvet Elvis! I can't believe I'm commiting this to actual notes, but this might be the best Biale bottle we've ever had, and it's hard to top the equal vintage from the Monte Rosso vineyard. MR is dear to my heart from most producers, but this is epic. At peak enjoyment at only 11yo! Decanted 5H.

Paired to mesquite smoked pork chops from a 1/2 pig purchase from our dear farmer friend Courtney at Highland Farm (Old Chatham, NY). Please support your local resources.

Had a 12 Carlisle RR Carlisle Vineyard. Great fruit, soft earth, elegant but lacked some pizzazz until it had two plus hours in the decanter.

Oh, last night.

Château de Beru

Clos Béru Monopole Chablis Chardonnay 2017

This is really atypical Chablis in as much as it lacks minerality. The style is clean and pure, with a strong citrus fruit profile - white grapefruit, some lemon. I read Mr Galloni’s note afterwards which is much more enthusiastic which made and made me question my own impressions asI didn’t find the depth he did. Interesting but I’d not be a buyer. — 2 months ago
