Temecula Valley, South Coast

Monte De Oro

Simplexity Red Wine 2018

I must reward consistency. Another delightful year of their Meritage style blend. This year it’s a different blend of Merlot, Malbec, Petite Verdot, and Cabernet Franc. Lovely nose with complex fruit and spice flavors, mouth watering acidity, and smoothness throughout with just enough tannins for a pop and a pleasant lingering finish. So drinkable on opening! — 5 days ago

Private Reserve Temecula Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Sweet, fruit forward notes to start with a lighter than expected body, finishing with warm spice. Very nice, easy drinking. — 8 months ago

A Tribute to Grace Wines

Hofer Vineyard Grenache 2019

What can I say I love anything Angela makes, and the new Tribute to Grace tasting room in Los Alamos is a gem. My Dad declared this was his favorite wine ever and my mom is from nearby Cucamonga, so let’s just say everyone was happy. For that reason, wine of our trip out west after not seeing the folks for 18 months. As always, just incredibly elegant Grenache, light on its feet, but not without its nuanced power — a year ago
