2007 Watkins Family Winery "Nuns Cliff Vineyard" Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 12-31-2010
Trying to keep up with the hundreds of small, boutique wineries throughout California can be a truly Sisyphian task, like pushing a wine barrel up a steep hill, only to watch it roll down again and again. Luckily our perceptive buyers are born with attenuated sensory organs in their brains to scent out those micro-properties where wonderful wines are conceived in vino. Someday I'll have to research the colorful origin of the name 'Nun's Cliff Vineyard", but as for this expressive, bountiful wine, it delivers a veritable sermon on the mountain of sumptuous, deep fruit, beautiful aromatics and well-wrought tannins. Nothing overdone here, just substantial and mouthwatering wine for a very attractive price.
Dudognon Reserve Cognac 750ml
Review Date: 11-30-2010
A voter santé! Raymond Dudognon first distilled his own cognac in 1946, following the venerable traditions laid down by his great grandfather in 1776. The heart of the Charente region, located about 100 miles northeast of Bordeaux, is called Grande Champagne, and consists of deep chalk-rich soils, perfect for creating fragrant, long-lived cognacs. Made from 100% natural Ugni Blanc, this singular spirit is blended and distilled in the traditional alambic Charentais pot and eventually aged in 350 liter barrels. The Dudognon homage to tradition stresses minimal intervention, using only pure water as an additive to create a stunning cognac that charms and caresses the palate, displaying a weightlessness and delicacy of fruit found less commonly in cognacs at twice the price. Highly recommended!
Sorelle Bronca Prosecco DOCG
Review Date: 7-11-2009
This delightful Prosecco is a strong contender for best in class among its growing legions of fans, delivering dependably delicious flavors of sliced apples, citrus blossoms and almonds in a pure and sparkling persona. Showcasing both freshness and mineral vibrancy, it should complement most summer fare from salads to appetizers, and would be the perfect match for a basket of lightly-fried calamari.
