2012 La Monacesca Verdicchio di Matelica
Review Date: 10-1-2014
This wine is fascinating on so many levels- it feels like it has density and sweetness from wood and residual sugar, but nothing could be further from the truth. Pure, perfect physiological ripeness because of long hangtime, combined with high altitude cool temperatures, ample sunlight, marine soil- and zero oak use- 100% stainless steel. Even better? Sub-14% alcohol! Gorgeous citrus, floral, apricot, saline and mineral with medium plus acidity and rich body- a long, lasting finish create a plush, round, layered wine worthy of your best celebrations! And yes- it comes in magnum format too!

2013 Michel Delhommeau "Symbiose" Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie

Richer and deeper than its "Harmonie" counterpart, this is still classic, racy Muscadet. Pear, apple, mineral and citrus with medium plus acidity. Yum!

2006 Miguel Merino "Vitola" Reserva Rioja
Review Date: 8-7-2014
The juicy goodness that is Miguel Merino wine just keeps on comin'! Red plum, cassis, and blackberry with notes of meat and game. Elegantly integrated oak and tannin with balanced medium plus acidity. A really lovely wine from Miguel Merino, who continues to demonstrate that his wines can age with the subtle grace of the best of Rioja.

2013 Zudugarai "Amats" Getariako Txakolina
Review Date: 8-7-2014
Our friends at Zudugarai Amats bring it again! Zippy freshness with a hint of fizz and low alcohol- delish! Lime zest, mineral, green pear with a lively acidity that makes me reach for the bottle to pour another glass. It's time to kick off your shoes, break out the aged Manchego, olives and Marcona almonds, grab a glass, and hit the patio- it's Txak-O'Clock somewhere!

2010 Our Wine Rkatsiteli Republic of Georgia
Review Date: 7-16-2014
Holy unusual, Batman! Dried orange peel, dried apricot, citrus and a cheesy, leesy toastiness--with a crazy amount of tannin! Medium plus acidity. If you've ever wondered about the wines of Georgia, this friendly wine is a great intro. Serve with a cheese plate or roasted chicken!

Underwood by Union Wine Co. Oregon Pinot Gris (375ml can)
Review Date: 7-14-2014
OK people, have a little faith in us, here--this wine is incredibly quaffable and delicious! Perfect for a summer picnic in the park, in the ice bucket poolside, on a hike up to a beautiful sunset or even backpacking in the woods, this little half bottle in a can delivers all of the freshness you would hope for. Melon, citrus, peach and medium acidity! I'm in! Just be careful--it's two glasses in one can!

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 Suñer 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!
