Passito Malvasia delle Lipari 2010

Salina is an amazing little island part of the Aeolian islands, a volcanic archipelago in the Tyrrhenian sea north of Sicily... well, my dear friends #carlo and #andrea #hauner they transmit into their bottles all the aromas the essence the breeze the light the flowers the trees the cappers surrounding this paradise lost on earth. Regarding the unforgettable Passito Riserva paired with handmade house-fresh sicilian cannoli that's like to be in Arcadia Shangri-la Utopia... at one time! http://www.hauner.it/ — 2 years ago

Brick House

The Dragon's Tale Ribbon Ridge Gamay Noir 2013

Such an awesome Beaujolais style red from Oregon! Kudos to Brick House: their 40 acre property houses both a farm + winery, and has been an organic, biodynamic estate for 25 years. Everything is done by hand and all the fruit is estate grown. It is on this sprawling utopia where former CBS newsman and now Brick House proprietor Doug Tunnell produces only 20-30 cases (!!) of ‘The Dragon’s Tale’ gamay noir (a traditional French varietal found in Beaujolais).

This 2013 gamay gem is juicy yet rustic with plenty of cherry notes both on the nose and palate, accompanied by flavors of toasted nuts, fresh violets, and thyme. Only a hint of tannins. Reminiscent of cherry pie on a farm! Would be great with spice rubbed pork or grilled

Utopia Vineyard Rosé Pinot Noir 2014

This is a rosé I can get behind. Quite a bit more serious than your average. @ 14.1% you'd think it'd be a bit hot but it actually balances the big fruit (watermelon, strawberry, raspberry) and zippy acidity. An early indication of just how good the 2014 vintage was. Patience level is low for the Oakes wines to be ready. — 2 years ago
