Little James' Basket Press Vin de Pays d'Oc Viognier Sauvignon Blanc 2020

We really love this unusual blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier, 50/50. Reasonably priced and very quaffable with cheese and crackers. — 22 days ago

Desire Lines Wine Co.

Cole Ranch Mendocino County Riesling 2020

Delectable Wine
9.3

Desire Lines' Riesling Cole Ranch is racy and rich in 2020. Lemon confit orchard fruit, jasmine and light tropical accents are front and center. I suppose the 2020 is perhaps a bit less varietal than it can be, but soft, creamy contours more than compensate. The 2020 is a delicious wine to enjoy over the coming years.

Little James Basket Press Vin de Pays d'Oc Grenache 2021

So delightful!
These rating scales don’t do justice to wonderful wines like this one. If you are looking for a 90+ banger of a wine, then you’ll miss the joy you get from this kind of straightforward pure expression of south Rhone Grenache. It’s so flexible and friendly with so many foods.

If you’ve been drinking $10 wines, then step up to this one and enjoy its clean friendly flavor. If you’ve been snobbishly drinking $25+ wines, then you’re also missing the simple joys of a great table wine like this.

Tobin James

Reserve James Gang Paso Robles Cabernet Franc 2017

Notes of tobacco, blueberry jam, pepper and licorice. Cab franc is not commonly bottled on its own and this one did justice to the fruit. — 20 days ago

Saxum Vineyards

James Berry Vineyard Grenache Blend 2017

Exceptionally rish and deep flavors of darker berries with a bit of red fruits blended in. Very complex with a killer finish. Drinking well now, but has the stuffing for further improvement. Fantastic. — a month ago
