Youngberg Hill

Jordan Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2012

This 2012 ‘Jordan’ Pinot Noir from Youngberg Hill is quite tasty—darker cherry fruit notes, blueberry, and graphite-like quality framed by fresh, uplifting acidity. It was a great choice for washing down the baby back ribs I smoked for the #GoPats game last night.

Miner Family

Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Miner Family Winery 2017 Sauvignon Blanc (SRP $22): Enjoyed pan-seared scallops with this Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc tonight. It’s lively, fresh and aromatic—just the way you want them-with notes of citrus zest, lemon rind, white flowers and just a hint of savory herbs. The wine’s weight (medium-bodied), brightness and crisp fruit flavors played well with the dish. #MinerFamilyWinery #SauvignonBlanc #NapaWine #wine #winelover #WineWednesday #myvinespot — a year ago

Bervini

Millesimato Prosecco

Bervini Millesimato Prosecco: Fun, crisp, and festive—this is just what Doc Adams ordered to beat the heat. This Prosecco features a bright, citrusy acidity framing vibrant flavors of golden apple, honeysuckle, and ripe stone fruit. It’s fresh and satisfying, and a good under $20 sparkling option to brighten the day. #wine #bubbly #sparklingwine #Prosecco #wineblogger #winelover #myvinespot

Château Quattre

Cahors Malbec 2017

Château Quattre 2016 Cahors: This Cahors is made up of 90% Malbec with equal parts Merlot and Tannat. Visually, it lives up to its “black wine” moniker, pouring a deep purple color. There are generous amounts of dark fruits, with upfront flavors of sun-kissed, ripe blackberries and plum liqueur interwoven with floral and cedary spice notes. Supple tannins and firm acids counterbalance a rich texture for a medium-bodied mouth-feel that stays light on its feet. This is a solid everyday red for the dinner table that won’t break the bank at just under $20. #Cahors #Malbec #wine #winelover #SWFrance #wineblogger #winewriter #myvinespot — a year ago

Left Coast Cellars

Latitude 45 Estate Pinot Noir 2015

Left Coast Cellars 2015 Latitude 45 Pinot Noir (SRP $38): Latitude 45 is Left Coast Cellars' oldest vineyard (planted in 2001 to Dijon clones). Like many of the great vineyards of France, the site directly intersects the 45th parallel—hence the name. This wine has a dark fruit character, led by plum and black berry fruit, underscored by notable mineral and forest floor tones. There’s a dash of dried red fruit in the background, with black cherry and dark chocolate bark on the finish. It has a soft, round texture with balanced acidity. I enjoyed this Pinot on its own and with pan-fried calves' liver—the iron-rich flavors of the dish paired nicely with the wine. Cheers! #PinotNoir #WillametteValley #orwine #wineblogger #wine #winelover #myvinespot — 9 months ago

Kungfu Girl Washington State Riesling 2016

Charles Smith 2016 Kung Fu Girl Riesling: Enjoyed this bright and refreshing off-dry Riesling with spicy salmon stir-fry for lunch. Only $12 and works well with spicy dishes. The sweetness in the wine tempers the heat and the acidity acts as a palate cleanser getting you ready for the next bite.

Stinson Vineyards

Mourvédre Rosé 2017

Stinson Vineyard 2017 Rosé of Mourvèdre (SRP $20): This rosé is the epitome of an enjoyable, food-friendly wine. A brilliant pink hue, it leads with a core of soft red fleshed fruits—namely watermelon and strawberry, followed by fresh-cut rose petals, citrus peel, and a trace of savory herb. In the mouth, it’s light-bodied and poised, rounded out by a zesty, saline-laced acidity. Fruit was sourced from Farmer’s Rest Vineyard in Henrico Virginia and Horton Vineyards in Gordonsville, Virginia. Produced from 100% Mourvèdre, the fruit from Horton was planted by the late Dennis Horton in 1988. Mr. Horton planted some of the first Rhone grapes in Virginia, including Viognier, Marsanne, Roussanne, and many other varieties that went on to be widely popular in the state.
