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!

Jean-Jacques Lamoureux "Réserve" Brut Champagne
Review Date: 03-19-2015
What an intensely pretty Champagne! Peach and blood orange waft from the glass, which makes me think of a spring-time sunset. The texture is moussey and very playful and carries flavors of white stone fruit and orange blossom. I'm so happy that this Champagne exists!

The Faust is rich and decadent. Ripe cherries, raspberries, mocha and soft cedar envelop your palate and warm your heart.

2010 Château Trillol Corbières
Review Date: 11-20-2014
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.

2011 Hazana "Tradicion" Rioja
Review Date: 11-07-2013
This awesomely priced Rioja is a blend of 85% Tempranillo and 15% Graciano, and comes from 20-40-year-old head-pruned vines. It's full of dried cherry, savory earth, and sweet tobacco leaf. It's a great Rioja at an incredible value!
