Liguria Vermentino Pinot Grigio 2018

Completely functional for the food it paired with...acid/minerality in fine form :) mouthfeel and profile - solid. Nice effort here! — 22 days ago

Yadkin Valley Merlot 2017

ESF
9.1

This is a small town beauty pageant winner - rural North Carolina channeling the Right Bank... gorgeous brooding ripe almost stewed plum, blackberry & boysenberry mingled with dusty edges, spices, savory and a wild savage forestry-herbaceousness. Medium bodied w/firm tannins backbone - an absolute pleasure that absolutely over-delivers @ $17. .1 bump for locale & price point — 3 months ago

Junius Lindsay Vineyard

Yadkin Valley Grenache 2014

This is an astounding effort from a fantastic vintage for region that’s not supposed to grow anything but tobacco… This single varietal is grown at lower level elevation. Not too far from Greensboro, this is remarkably expressive of herbs, florality, and dried red fruit! The balance in mouth feel are exquisite… Absolutely shocked to learn that this was vinted at Childress under Michael Zimmerman‘s direction. Stunning!! — 7 months ago

Bin 17 Unoaked Chardonnay 2015

15% off $12 is just pure insanity! This has darkened & fattened up nicely with generous aromas of peach, apricot, golden apple & pineapple w/some funky musky (melon) notes. Broad, rich & viscous on mid-palate leading to smooth finish: love finding gems from unusual places. — a month ago

Wait...why did you decant this? Was there any acid left at all?

Ron: just to open it up a bit - had solid acidic backbone. I prefer whites like these more towards cellar temp anyway - accentuates fatness
