Champ Levat Mondeuse 2018

Natty in the best possible way. Wet earth, blueberry, plum, hibiscus, marzipan. Fresh, great acidity & tannic finish. 😍⚡️ — 2 years ago

Ironside Cellars

Pinot Noir 2019

Beautiful Pinot Noir from Monterey. Cherry and plum- almost jammy. Subtle hint of spice, but not strongly acidic or overwhelming. Well balanced. Scrummy as Mary Berry would say. Would buy again. — 2 years ago

Château L'Evangile

Pomerol Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

Wow. Kaleidoscopic wine. Dark cherries, dark chocolate, tobacco, roses and violets, a precise, pure, elegant and complex wine that is great now but will stand the test of time. Tanins are polished as can be and the wine is long and same time subtle. Great stuff. Highly recommended. Get one bottle and see for yourself. — 2 years ago

Lemelson Vineyards

Thea's Selection Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2018

Fruit sources from 7 organic vineyards over 3 AVA’s, Ruby with aromas of red/black fruits and earthy spices. On the palate youthful flavors of cherry and black raspberry, cacao, tea and licorice notes with elegant spice. Fine rich tannins, long finish ending with fruit, spice, cedar and earthy mineral notes. Good value! — 2 years ago
