Lot 811 Lodi Zinfandel 2019

The wine is medium dark in the glass. The nose is perfumed with plum and blackberry aromas, with a hint of black pepper and campfire smoke. An undercurrent of lilacs sets off the more savory aspect. On the palate, there is amazing fruit - cherry, blackberry, cassis - along with some fairly awesome peppery notes. The mouthfeel is full, yet lean, with tannins firm enough to do a job but soft enough to stay out of the way when they are not working. I don’t get a color reference very often on the palate, but this wine tastes purple to me. The finish is medium at best, but full of the aforementioned fruit. — 12 days ago

EQ Coastal Sauvignon Blanc 2019

On a hot almost-summer night this wine hits the spot! ☀️

It’s a Sauvignon Blanc from the Valle de Casablanca D.O. in Chile 🇨🇱 where the vines from which it hails receive cooling influences from the Pacific Ocean breezes, lending balance and preserving acidity. 🌊

It’s no wonder this wine is labeled EQ as in Equilibrio (the Spanish word for balance), because it offers a wonderful balance of ripe tropical fruit aromas and flavors with vibrant acidity and notable minerality. 🍍 🥭

The aromas and flavors are fresh, albeit ripe, generally tropical with passion fruit, guava, mango, underripe pineapple, also green apple, gooseberry, freshly cut grass, and wet slate.

It’s a perfect patio pairing and fun to explore the beauty of new world Sauvignon Blanc from this region.

It’s also a great value at $12.99. 👏👏👏👏👏

Matetic Vineyards, E.Q., Coastal Sauvignon Blanc, D.O. Valle de Casablanca, Viñedo Valle Hermoso, Chile. Vintage 2019. ABV 13.5%.

Domaine De L'Ermitage

Premiere Cuvee Menetou-Salon Pinot Noir

Expression concentrée et minérale du Pinot Noir en Loire. Belle acidité fondue portée par des notes primaires framboises/cerises. Corps et finale sur des notes florales, herbacées et terreuses. Tanins persistants tout en finesse. Belles notes musquées et épicée. Superbe dans cette gamme de prix.
