@Ron R you know it baby.

Domaine Pral

Beaujolais Blanc Chardonnay

I was very skeptical of this wine. I know Beaujolais is the best qpr red around but how would the chard be? For a neutral grape that is a reflection of the winemaker this wine is a grand slam. Crisp acidity, banana peal, and bruised green apple jump out of the glass. The finish is harmonious and savory. Paired with lunchtime board this baby ramped up further. #qpr — 3 months ago

Bodegas El Nido

Clio Jumilla Monastrell-Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

Wow. Lived up to the hype. Promoted by no less authorities than @Carl Fischer and @Isaac Pirolo. The hype is real.

Many have suggested that this is Napa meets Spain. For me it's Mollydooker takes a Spanish vacation.

Bold and unctuous. Full tilt. Very high

@Carl Fischer, I wish I knew exactly what my malfunction is. I used to love the Rhone varietals, then my wife came on the scene - game over! @TheSkip, Rudius do a special Mourvèdre at a knockdown price. Grapesthewineco.com is still retailing the 14.

Beauj with a little chill always hits the spot. Playful strawberry and cherry with a little mushroom and funk! — 2 months ago

Le Regge

Riserva Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2010

Was hoping for more out of this vintage and had decent luck taking fliers on Classico recently. Pretty dusty and barely any fruit. Guessing this wine either got cooked in the bottle, or is past peak and nearing rock bottom. — 6 months ago

Sounds like you need to give up on CC. I'm sorry. I'll bring you one from the producer.

Find Querceto CC. Best I've had and decent #QPR to boot

Laforet Bourgogne Chardonnay 2014

Really surprised how much I like this. Starts with a bright nose. It has acid similar to a Chablis and the unripe apple, lemon, and complexity of a Beaune. Great value Chardonnay that eschews the flabbiness and oak of others in the price range. #qpr — a month ago

Pool pounder. It's amazing what a talented négociant can do with grapes of varied quality to turn out a value wine.

I agree, Kyle. Acidity can really make a wine.

Carlisle Winery & Vineyards

Old Vines Russian River Valley Zinfandel 2014

A step up from the Sonoma designate and a #qpr winner. Something about Zin and Russian River just make magic. Wondering if any Carlisle Vineyard juice went into this bottling, I get a lot of similarities here and that is extremely high praise. — 4 months ago

Emiliana Organic Vineyards

Natura Sauvignon Valle Central Blanc 2016

This was way out of balance with crazy acidity but had decent flavors. Oddly, despite the wild acidity I didn't hate it. Got it on a bogo for this producer at my local grocery story, so not bad for that. — 6 months ago

Says the guy who convinced me to buy a Chilean SB

Yeah, Chilean SB is slammable and has massive #QPR if we're evaluating on the merits alone in a blind tasting then Marlborough is a no-brainer
