Organic Mendocino Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

My first sip of this wrapped my tongue in a bear hug and never let go. It was smooth, warm, and flavorful. I turned to my wife, in subtle surprise, and said, “what is this? I like it.” She said, “oh, yeah, it’s organic.” Well color me impressed and a newfound fan of this wine. — a month ago

Scaggs Vineyard Mourvedre 2016

This is so sexy. A dark staining purple with wide edges. Showing a gorgeous nose of black cherries, moist earth, cassis, and fresh herbs. I could seriously just take this in all day, what a fabulous nose. What is this? I’m not used to a Napa Valley Mourvèdre quite like this. This baby is lean and mean. Sexy and sleek, this clocks in at 13.9 when I was expecting upwards of 15. But that’s not really what Newfound does. And of course, it’s that Mount Veeder fruit, as well. As youthful as this is it still shows nice refinement and complexity. The herbal elements add to the depth of this baby. Still so young but already so beautiful, this is such a fun wine. On the palate, wild strawberries and plums mix with smoke and more herbs. Minimal oak and a touch of spice on the medium to long finish. Outstanding. — a year ago

Splendid review! Enjoy the weekend!🍷

Cantine Riondo

Spago Nero Prosecco

This wine was offered as a tasting at my local liquor store and I knew I had to buy it. Crisp apple notes with a hint of citrus and a wonderful balance between sweet and dry, this wine is my favourite yet in my newfound love of wine. At only $13, this is an amazing value, except the bottle disappears so quickly 😂 — 4 years ago

Scaggs Vineyard Counoise

Ok... everyone faults this wine for its “lightness”. This is NOT light, the color, texture, weight are all consistent with the grape variety. Smoke, olive, dark cherry notes with noticeable tannins, elevated zesty acidity and a liveliness that dances across the palate. This is a food wine, perhaps a “great” food wine....I would much rather indulge in this wine than an overwrought Napa Cabernet. — 4 months ago

Blanc Fumé de Pouilly Sauvignon Blanc 2012

So complex and rounded, love the oak use here. So unusual and a newfound love. Need to try a silex bottling with some age next! — 4 years ago

Yount Mill Vineyard Sémillon 2018

Bright green-gold color...lime, lemon pith, unripe citrus notes on the nose. Nice attack of acidity with medium weight on the tongue. Clean, crisp, zippy, alive.... the wine dances effortlessly across the palate with careful fruit/acid balance on the long lingering finish. The wine is fun to drink and is a delightful foil for fresh roadstand produce on a warm lake-side evening. I love this example of a “new” California attempt at food-friendly, Old World style table companions. — 5 months ago

Etichetta Bianca (White Label) Carema Nebbiolo 2008

My nose, christened by a small love that blooms, a wilted rose petal brought from necrosis and rigormortis by lust and love and sex, the sticky wonderful wetness of newfound joy, an amniotic state. What could be but this: a childish prodding, youth and the outward finger jabbing into the unknown. The wild known unknown, found loneliness, my absence from existence but a commodity of my lacking. The immediacy of a full life lived found in the reflected light of this aged sage. I am not worthy. — 4 years ago
