2012 Lange Willamette Valley Pinot Gris

Tropical fruit, Bartlett pear, citrus, mineral with notes of white flowers and lively acidity. Juicy and ridiculously drinkable! A spectacular example of real Oregon Pinot Gris. Love those Langes!

2012 Envinate "Parcela Seoane" Ribeira Sacra
Review Date: 6-26-2014
This elegant, feminine expression of Mencia from Ribera Sacra has completely changed my mind about the wines of this region. A single parcel expression, the wines shows beautiful red fruits--red cherry, strawberry, raspberry and red roses with medium plus acidity and medium tannin. Absolutely worth the splurge if you are seeking an unusual wine which drinks gracefully, and is not intimidating--but which your friends and family will most definitely enjoy with everything from roasted chicken, pork tenderloin, turkey, ribs, lamb or steak.

2013 Ameztoi Getariako Txakolina
Review Date: 6-26-2014
It's summertime once again, and for me--it's Txakoli time! This is one zippy little puppy--classically Txakolina notes of pear, citrus and mineral with a light fizz and tons of refreshing acidity! Low alcohol at 10.5%. I'm heading to the store now for some Manchego & Marcona almonds to get ready for patio entertaining with this fun vino. Just add good music, great friends, and lots of laughter!

2012 SuŮer Bibiloni Ca Sa Padrino "Montenegro" Binissalem (Mallorca)
Review Date: 6-26-2014
Red wine from Mallorca, you say? Why, yes indeed! We have had this pretty little wine on our shelves for some time, but revisiting it this week, I was struck again by how lovely it is. I would like to think it shows the light-hearted joyfulness of the island- red cherry, dried apricots, tarragon, and dried orange peel with medium plus acidity and soft, easy tannin. Fun, bright, fresh and very easy to drink. Crazy price for such a great wine!

2011 Limerick Lane Russian River Valley Syrah/Grenache
Review Date: 2-12-2014
Red cherry, spice, mineral, wet clay, blackberry and red and black currants, with medium plus acidity and medium plus tannin. None of the floral or overripe fruit sappiness which can weigh down Syrah-Grenache blends in the Rhone, this quite well-structured, balanced Syrah-Grenache blend gives any Chateauneuf du Pape a run for its money, hands down. Way to go, Limerick Lane!

2011 Limerick Lane Russian River Valley Zinfandel
Review Date: 2-12-2014
Our friends at Limerick Lane have hit it out of the park again with the Russian River Zin! Fabulous balance between pretty Zinfandel fruit and fresh acidity- very skillfully done. Cassis, black currant, Santa Rosa plum, graphite, spice with medium plus acidity and medium tannin. So easy to drink, you will be wondering who emptied the bottle when your back was turned!

2006 Lambuena Reserva Ribera del Duero
Review Date: 12-15-2013
Tinto Fino from 40-60 year old organically farmed vines, the 2006 Reserva from Lambuena is in a wonderful place for drinking now, but could easily cellar for another 10 years. Red cherry, sandalwood, cassis, black currant, chalky mineral, smoke, game, with sweet floral notes. Medium acidity with medium plus fine, well-integrated tannin. I have been waiting for the Lambuena wines to arrive for what feels like forever! As our first Direct Import from Ribera Del Duero, I couldn't be more proud of how these wines are showing! Salud!
