2007 Schloss Schönborn Riesling Kabinett
Review Date: 10-2-2013
This 2007 Kabinett is just now starting to show off its sexy potential. Light and delicate on the palate but retaining a racy core of bright fruit and juicy acidity. Definite no brainer…
2011 Gritsch "Axpoint" Gruner Veltliner Federspiel Wachau
Review Date: 8-21-2013
This single vineyard has long been one of my favorites from Gritsch, especially at this price. It has plenty of depth and complexity running through it but I never feel guilty for “accidently” making a bottle disappear while cooking in the kitchen and having to open another one.
2011 Gritsch "Kalmuck" Grüner Veltliner Wachau
Review Date: 8-21-2013
This has always been my go to wine to introduce people to the world of Wachau Gruner: a good mix of minerality, acid and fruit structure. An “entry level Gruner that puts many others to shame.
2012 Claude Riffault "La Noue" Sancerre Rosé
Review Date: 6-28-2013
This Sancerre rosé is without question one of my all time favorite rosés. Made from 100% Pinot Noir and grown in the limestone soils of Sancerre this wine is not messing around. Seductive aromatics of herbed laced red fruits with dusty minerals looming in the background. A textured but polished mid palate guides you into a finish with drive and purpose. This is a rosé for grownups - a palate pleasure party.
2011 Kalinda Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
Review Date: 3-20-2013
This is exactly what I expect out of a Sonoma Pinot Noir: clean bright red fruits with lift along the palate and an elegant yet structured backbone. I’m guessing somebody got in trouble for pricing this at the absurd $19 sticker price, should be more like $25+. From grilled salmon, roasted pork loin to pizza and a winner with vegetarian dishes too, this wine covers all of the bases. One of the best Kalinda wines to date!
Charles Baur Cremant d'Alsace Brut Rosé
Review Date: 1-28-2009
How can you go wrong with a rosé sparkler—especially under the $15 mark? Made from Pinot Noir, this is jam-packed with crunchy red fruits and spicy strawberry sweetness. Delightful on its own, as an aperitif, with a first course salad, or with a plate of cheese and a hearty loaf of fresh-baked bread.
