Beau Joie Brut Champagne Blend Rosé

NV. Wine for the Emmy awards. Guess it took a pandemic for everyone to catch up on 6 years of Schitt’s Creek! Lovely bubbles. — 3 years ago

Domaine de Fontsainte

Gris de Gris Corbières Grenache Gris Rosé 2019

A. R.

This wine is the perfect intersection of quality and price. 15 bucks. Bracing acidity, bright fruit, salinity. I’ve had dozens of bottles of this wine over the years, and it never disappoints. — 3 years ago

Cs Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Ken Z

Drank 9\20\20. Nice with a bacon cheeseburger.

Medium nose of black and blue fruits with some spice and a bit of herbaceousness as well. Big, but balanced with cassis, blueberry, and a bit of spice all backed by medium plus tannins. Long finish and great balance. I can't think of too many good cabs for under $20, and this one delivers for closer to $10. Incredible value.

3\21\8\4\4 +50 = 90 pts.

Enderle & Moll

Liaison Pinot Noir 2017

A nearly perfect German Spat. Expressive and restrained. Nothing short of beautiful from Enderle & Moll who many consider the best Pinot wranglers in Germany.

This is light and lucid with the temperament of a dark shadowed forest. Damp soil, sprawling moss, minty herbs. The faintest strawberry and cherry underneath a salty lean mineral figure.
