2013 Von Strasser "Rudy" Paicines Pinot Noir
Review Date: 04-13-2015
Sumptuous and polished, this Pinot Noir from Rudy Von Strasser is perfect for summer! Strawberry, cherry and soft pepper lead you into a soft herbal finish. Perfect for lighter summer fare and with spicy grilled foods. Rudy strikes again!

What an incredibly expressive nose! Crushed rose petals & smokey meaty wildness fly from the glass. The palate is full of dark, rich berries and savory forest floor. Incredible wine for less than $15.

2009 Bodegas Muga "Selección Especial" Reserva Rioja
Review Date: 11-07-2013
Incredibly delicious Rioja! This Spanish beauty is super silky on the palate and is full of black cherries, dried herbs, and soft cedar. The finish is earthy with a leathery grip that lingers with a light minerality. A perfect wine to compliment your holiday feast or simply to sip on a cool evening.
