Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Really smooth, blooms in your mouth. Had with duck confit rolls, shrimp tempura, fish tacos and swordfish. Went well with everything. Fonished with banana chocolate bread pudding. Mmmm good! — a month ago

Perfect for a winters night. Purple-black color with delicious smooth berries and soft tannins. Great value too. — 18 days ago

Domaine Guffens-Heynen

Tris des Hauts de Vignes Pouilly-Fuissé Chardonnay 2010 fresh and mineral. Flowers, yellow stone fruit, flint like gun powder. Oh boy, this is good, and a much better bottle than some weeks ago. Catch some if you find it! — 25 days ago

Brune et Blonde de Guigal Côte-Rotie Syrah 2015

I expected to be intrigued by this wine, but not necessarily enjoy drinking it. I was so wrong. The initial impression brought plenty of smoke, meat, wet wool, gun powder and lots of potpourri. But just a short time later you were presented with a wine of both intrigue and enveloping deliciousness. Black fruits carry the day - currant paste, plum and blackberry - with mulled winter spices also playing their part (cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom). The tannins are a silky bath of soft, black earth, with acidity that carries the wine while hiding in the background. Complexity and approachability make this old world stunner a great find for someone stuck in their new world rut. — 13 days ago

It's got a great unique flavor. A nice oaky touch with enough dark fruit to balance — 23 days ago

Domaine du Bel Air

Jour de Soif Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2017

Someone said natural. Think this is organic farming but I don’t think this is natural wine. Pierre Gauthier, almost 40 acres of Clay/Limestone Tufa in Benais outside of Bourgeuil. Probably just over $25-$30retail, $45-$60 on a wine list. Smoking good. The composite rating here is insanely low for the QPR. Everyone should be drinking these wines. This is a great wine in the grand scheme of things, it’s all about perspective. Entry level wine, the Jour de Soif has no oak, bright fruit, amazing green edge. There is a wet tobacco thing. Classic wine! Love it. — 6 days ago
