Rating the Malbec. Bold, mild tannins, blueberry fruit finish. Would pair well with pork chops. — 21 days ago

Kutch Wines

Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2016

Nice medium gold in the glass... oak, if any is restrained. Ripe sweet red apple and pear notes with beautifully balanced fruit/acid and long, silken finish. Drinking well at four years and representing a remarkable bargain for chard of this quality. — 3 days ago

Big, bold, low tannins and some residual sugar — 14 days ago

Rhys Vineyards

Family Farm Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012

A very elegant, red berries and floral notes, great balance with polished tannins and medium body pinot. Rhys does some of the very best California pinots and the only thing is to give them 6 to 8 years in bottle. Drink or hold. Highly recommended. — 9 days ago

Livermore Ranch

Livermore Valley Merlot 2013

A Bronco Wine wine. Hmm, That’s the Two Buck Chuck company. This is Livermore Valley AVA though. Worth the $4 flyer at Grocery Outlet. Dark ruby maroon color. Smells dense and kinda complex. Hint of fresh herbs and smoke of dried herbs with the fruity stuff. Flavors are complex. Cherries in a woodsy bourbon barrel thing. Also chalk. (Good way chalk). Meaty streak. This would go well with a rare steak from the coals. Reminds me of nice St. Èmilion or Meritage type blends from Sonoma. This is a great deal for the regular price and one of those WTF deals for $4 at G.O. Just good to great Merlot. — 21 days ago
