Shenandoah Valley, Sierra Foothills

Villa Toscano

White Barbera

Not your typical sweet white wine. A creamy apricot with a sweet finish. Great to drink very cold and with spicy food. If you're a beginner wine drinker, start here! Great proce and layers of tropical Starburst flavors! — 3 days ago

Wilderotter Vineyards

Estate Shenandoah Valley Barbera 2015

Heavy bottle. Dark color. Smells resinous and like old raisins. Spice. Cardamom. Dry but juicy. Caramel. Blackberry cobbler. This is complex and funky. A nice example of the Barbera. — 3 months ago

McKahn Family Cellars

Shenandoah Valley Grenache 2018

I have discovered a new favorite. McKahn Family Cellars. This is their Grenache 2018. The bouquet is full of spice and rhubarb pie. The initial palate is somewhat sour on the beginning but then diffuses into a nice dark berry flavor. This is followed by spice and dark chocolate. Then comes the oak and smoke. The finish is semidry and leaves you thirsting for more. — 8 months ago

Keplinger

Lithic Shake Ridge Vineyard Grenache Blend 2011

Luv Keplinger Rhône Valley Blends! These grapes are from Amador County. Nice to compare it to her Napa blend. Color - med reddish-brown. Plum and raspberry-cherry fruit bounce off the nose with a floral smoke and tobacco scent; some mineral, wet tea and orange peel lingers. Taste is a definite sweet raspberry with some tar, cedar, crushed rock and vanilla-caramel taste on the mid-pallet. Tannins are well integrated and should drink now. — a year ago
