Bonterra Vineyards

The Roost Blue Heron Vineyard Chardonnay

@Bonterra 2015 The Roost Blue Heron Vineyard Chardonnay (SRP $45): This Chardonnay is made from biodynamic grapes sourced from Bonterra’s Blue Heron vineyard in Mendocino County, California. If you are a member of the Anything But Chardonnay (ABC) club, this wine just may be your ticket out. Notable for its lovely texture; there are flavors of lemon curd, caramel apple, pear tart, and baking spice framed by notes of toasted oak. In the mouth, it is well-rounded with zesty acidity providing balance and lift. I enjoyed a generous splash last week with a delicious bowl of butternut squash soup. #winestudio #Chardonnay #biodynamic #biodynamicfarming #MendocinoCounty #cawine #wine #winelover — a year ago

Fetzer Vineyards

Eagle Peak California Merlot 2015

@FetzerWine 2015 Eagle Peak Merlot ($10): Medium-bodied, supple, and streamlined—a round texture gives way to upfront flavors of purple stone fruit and black cherry, with trailing hints of mocha and toffee. There’s a dash of undergrowth on the finish. This is a nice bottle to pair with red sauce dishes, pizza night, a big bowl of chili (and cornbread for the win), or grilled burgers (beef or portobello). One thing's for certain, you can’t beat the price! #winestudio #wine #Merlot #MendocinoCounty #winelover — a year ago

Tarantas

Sparkling Rosé

Tarantas 2016 Sparkling Rosé: This sparkler is made from 100% organically grown Bobal grapes, a variety native to Valenca, Spain. It’s refreshingly effervescent, with ripe and dried red berry fruit flavors and a springy acidity. Plenty affordable ($10) and just what the doctor ordered on a warm, summer day. Cheers! #Spain #sparkler #bubbly #rosé #organic #wine #winelover — 2 years ago

Reminiscing about this amazing value Super Tuscan we had at Officina last week during restaurant week in DC.

Restaurant week at Officina and a perfect wine for our three course meal. Thank you Natalie for the recommendation. Deep ruby red in appearance. Took some time to open up on the nose but showed layers of mocha, floral, touch of minerals, blue and black fruits and spices. Medium tannins (5.5/10) with balanced acidity and a medium plus body. Plush Merlot definitely comes through in the mid palate with black currants, black cherries, chocolate, espresso and a touch of earthiness. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2023.
__________
Crazy good wine for only $60.00 on a wine list. Made up of 50% Sangiovese with the remainder made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah, making this a true Super Tuscan Blend. All the Sangiovese is aged in stainless steel while the rest are aged in barriques. This wine is from an area in the southern part of Tuscany called Maremma, more specifically Upper Maremma in the Colline Metallifare zone. Need to find some more of this IGT. Label is designed by Raffaele De Rosa.

Absolutely, let’s do that.

Domaine Bernard Defaix

Côte de Lechet Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2015

Light gold robe with golden sparkles. Lemon bouquet with a secondary aroma of lemon meringue. Light and elegant citrus on the palate evolving into a brilliant mineral presence with impressive balance and finish. Lively and vivacious. A feminine expression of a Chablis 1er Cru. #burgundy #chablis #chardonnay #premiercru #winegeek #winelover #côtedelechet #vinblanc @vin_elegance — 2 years ago

Bedell Cellars

North Fork of Long Island Malbec 2015

Bedell Cellars 2015 Malbec: Grown on North Fork of Long Island (NY), this wine was hand-harvested from a single vineyard, and fermented with indigenous yeasts. Flavors of cranberries and brambly fruit are offset by hints of spice. Medium-bodied, it is round and fresh in the mouth, with pleasing acidity and soft tannins. It paired wonderfully with my smoked baby back rib dinner—a savory and very satisfying bottle of wine. #nywine #Malbec #NorthFork #NorthForkWine #winelover — a year ago

Parusso

Bussia Barolo Nebbiolo 2012

Barolo very fine on the nose, with flavours of spices and fruit. On the mouth is elegant, rich, with good tannins and long aftertaste.
