J. Lassalle "Cachet d'Or" 1er Cru Brut Champagne
Review Date: 06-10-2021
Fans of Pinot Meunier or anyone looking for a zippy crowd-pleasing party Champagne is going to want to take heed. The nose is shy with subtle notes of cherry but surprisingly supported by a fresh jolt of bright acidity and the hallmark flavor of pomegranate. Super fun pick, and the price is right!

2019 Lucien Lardy Morgon "Côte du Py"
Review Date: 06-04-2021
Lovely, lovely wine! This Morgon Cote du Py for $15.99 is such a fantastic deal. Chocolate cherry nose with a hint of cinnamon spice on the palate, the fruit darkens, showing a charming earthy quality, yet still buoyant and juicy. It finishes up with light sandy tannins and holds the perfect grip to accompany a summer charcuterie plate.

2015 Viña Real Reserva Rioja
Review Date: 05-26-2021
A must-have for any Spanish wine lover! You can't help but appreciate the perfect blend of leather and flora that hit the nose with this classic reserva. The palate is refreshing, clean like a bowl of ripe cherries, and an ideal companion for your favorite savory taco truck snacks.

2018 Textura "Textura da Estrela" Tinto Dão
Review Date: 05-26-2021
Here we find an intriguing wine from the Dão that lures you in with an earthy, black-fruited nature that imbues hints of pepper and red cherry. It's unique and bold enough to drink like a cocktail or pair with deliciously rich fatty foods that can tame the sandy tannins. I'm a big fan. Recommended!

Capurro Estate Grown Single Vintage Moscatel Premium Pisco (750ml)
Review Date: 10-05-2015
Of the single vintage 2012 Capurro piscos, the Moscatel, an offshoot of the Muscat grape, has the aromatic scent of orange blossoms and honeydew. The mouthfeel displays medium richness and develops into a spicy, dry, smooth finish. Sip alone to enjoy a true farm-to-bottle experience with the unique personality of one of Peru's top varietals! Delicious stuff.

Tropical and unique, Capurro's family blend of grapes called Acholado is a clear, colorless and delicious spirit exploring complex notes of dried grass, flora, pepper and light stone fruit flavors. This is an excellent choice to play with your standard tiki recipes and mix something truly exotic. Have some fun!

2012 Newton "Unfiltered" Napa Valley Chardonnay
Review Date: 05-31-2015
Here's a California classic expressing a luscious, full-bodied wine that hits that sweet spot of balancing bright fruit, richness and acidity. Ripe with flavors of apricot pie and jack fruit mixed with silky texture and mouthfeel. This drinks great today, but will continue to evolve with a little age.
