Pink Wine Garnacha Monastrell

73/13/7/5/2 blend of Garnacha, Syrah, Monastrell, Graciano and Piquepoul Blanc. Pink to red rose petal in color (it’s not just the artwork) light cherry aroma, Good tangerine-cherry-white pepper flavor consistent with two main red varietals here. Not quite bone dry but close. Nice acidity and mineral finish. Muted flavors overall but a fine wine for sipping on a hot day. Paired so well with a Bianco Verde pizza al fresco last week at Pizzeria Bianco that I went out and bought a bottle. — 3 months ago

Arizona Stronghold Vineyard

"Dala" Merlot 2018

Lighter extract, interesting style of #merlot from #arizona. Wild cherry, some darker bramble fruit and leather aromas. Drinks like a young soft Nebbiolo with bright acidity, medium tannins but no tar notes, fading into a long chewy finish. — 19 days ago

Huss Brewing Company

CenPho Local Citrus IPA

Orange with a hint of brown, slightly hazy, medium head on pour. Good orange and grapefruit flavor that drifts off into piney hop IPA land, with a citrus zest finish with moderate hop bitterness. Given the tradition of citrus growing in the (central) Phoenix (or CenPho) area, the brewers do capture something authentic, “zesty, fruity, local pride” as it states on the bottom border of the can. It even looks like they forage their citrus from the backyards of locals. Tasty stuff, admirably imagined and crafted. Not a classic IPA style but who cares? 🌵🍋🍊🍺🌅 Gonna be another scorcher, drink up — 3 months ago

Aridus Wine Company

Limited Production Viognier 2018

Yellow in color with a light golden hue.

Pretty nose of citrus, lemons, apples, light apricots, white flowers and light honey.

Medium plus in body and refreshing, with medium acidity.

Very dry on the palate with grapefruits, pears, melons, spices and white pepper.

Tangy finish with limes.

This is a nice and easy drinking Viognier from Arizona. Crisp and refreshing. Nicely balanced with a soft mouthfeel.

A good pool wine and good for parties.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with cheeses and smoked salmon.

12.7% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$28.
