OMG. So good. Tastes like a cross of Barolo and Burgundy. Lovely red fruits, tannins are mostly resolved. Interesting herbal note too! Excellent. Glad I have more. — 18 days ago

Caespes Colli Tortonesi Terre di Libarna Timorasso

Perfect summer wine, picked up at Eataly Boston. It's the only Timorasso I've had the pleasure to drink, I still need to try the VIGNETI MASSA. Something of a cross between Erbaluce and Arneis (without the bitter almond finish). Bright and light, but with some slightly richer tropical tones... by no means a warm-climate white. Delicious! — 13 days ago

Suisun Creek

Suisun Valley Chardonnay 2017

Butterscotch nose! On the palate, this is so deliciously funny. You’re going to laugh, but it reminds me of a cross between light airy butterscotch cookies and fresh made egg noodles! It transforms into bright lemon bars as it opens up. It’s yeasty yet it has a sense of butter-baked goodies. It can pair up with either savory or sweetened faire. Versatile in complementary pairings. I’m not a big chard gal, but I’m digging it. — a month ago

Cross Fork Creek

Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Excellent second label from Sheridan. Great PQR at $18. Lush dark fruit balanced by some charcoal, espresso, and violets. Could easily hold up against wines twice as expensive. — 2 months ago

Viña Nora

Rías Baixas Albariño 2019

Expressive aromas of underripe orchard and tropical fruit, white flowers, honeysuckle, and fresh cut grass. It all translates to the flavor along with a salty minerality. Medium body with great acid and a long finish. Drinks like a cross between Petit Chablis and white Bordeaux. Insane value. — 3 days ago

Two Hands

Harry & Edward's Garden Langhorne Creek Shiraz 2005

This is a cross between smoked blackberry pie, barbecue brisket with Sweet Baby Ray's sauce, and Lay's barbecue potato chips. The front of this wine is very opulent, very rounded and full bodied mouthfeel. Lots of smoked blackberry pie with graham cracker crust immediately in the front. The middle is where it goes a little darker. Smoky, ashy, meaty. Still finishes with some astringency. I think the consensus is that this one might be a slightly over the hill, and I would probably agree with that. However, really enjoyable wine that really would have gone well with an herbed pork or tenderloin. — a month ago

Mm. Sounds up my alley, especially with Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce!

Shay it lost a fair amount of the savory notes after an hour or so and went a lot more to the smoked berey side but I definitely thought about this being more in your wheelhouse than mine initially @Shay A


Dry Marselan Galilee Grenache Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Binyamina Wines Ha'Shomer Marselan Reserve 2017, Galilee, Israel


Dark ruby in color with a wide and cloudy reddish rim.

Strong nose of blueberries, black currants, plums, licorice, oak, spices, dark coffee, black pepper, earth, herbs, light alcohol, wet leaves and black tea.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, black currants, coffee, oak, earth, tobacco leaf, green vegetables, spices, black tea, bitter herbs and black pepper.

Medium plus on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a nice surprise coming from Israel. This Marselan is earthy and interesting. Very tangy, spicy and engaging. The aromatic nose makes it fun to smell on for a while.

Needs an hour to open up properly to bring out the tannins, and show good structure. Much better after 3 hours of airtime, so be patient. Would be interesting to see how it evolves in the next couple of years.

The Marselan grape variety is a cross between Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache, and I like both. Interesting stuff.

Good by itself and better with food. I paired it with Brie cheese and olives. Would pair nicely with game meats or lamb dishes.

100% Marselan grapes from the Galilee region, were aged in French oak barrels for 16 months. Kosher. Mevushal.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.
