2016 Domaine la Garrigue "Cuvée Romaine" Côtes du Rhône
Review Date: 06-24-2019
Abundant dark fruits combines with detectable herbal notes such as sage and mint. This spicy, savory Cote Du Rhone is definitely not a flabby wine. ripe, full-bodied, opulent wonderful taste profile and no hard edges, lovely smooth tannin and a great finish. It is a divine wine!

Review Date: 06-24-2019
The perfect Rose' from south of France, Ventoux! Oh so beautiful, light, floral aromas of lavender and rose pedals with a mild hint of range zest. white raspberries an honeysuckle in the layers of every sip. It is a light Rose' with a gorgeous personality that makes it exciting and intriguing to consume.

2016 a super solid vintage in Napa! this Cab offers layers of dark fruits combined with heavy yet balanced structures. The palate reveals deep dried cassis, sage and plum. dense body and long finish with great tannin. You can drink it now and also hold on to it for at least another 10 years.

2016 Baron de Malleret, Haut-Médoc
Review Date: 06-23-2019
Consider 2016 a very lucky vintage in Bordeaux , which survived frost and hail. This gorgeous wine is pretty spectacular for such affordable and unbelievable low price. Dark fruits such as Cassis and black currant. Hint of Vanilla, roasted coffee and lush Mocha. It is a kind of wine you want to stash away as well as drinking it now since it is already very approachable.

It is a beautiful white wine with developed flavors of lemon, guava and honeysuckle. It has a creamy texture and a surprising saline, brine taste profile that makes it a great company to seafood and fresh salads as well as nutty cheese and salami dishes.

2018 Field Recordings Blanc de Franc Paso Robles
Review Date: 06-11-2019
Pét-Nat you say ? Light, Natural and Fizzy! the wine is bottled prior to fully completing its first fermentation, allowing carbon dioxide to be produced by the natural sugars found in the grapes. Pét-Nat production is variable and can be difficult to control and that is why it requires a level of expertise on the winemaker’s part. The end result is Cloudy, creamy, light with a hint of green apples and absolutely delicious.

This Chianti Classico shows magnificent taste profile of pomegranate, Spice, dried cherries. pleasant freshness and herbal quality. while you drink it, the fresh lively acidity comes first, followed by leathery chewy tannins.

2010 Lilian Ladouys, St-Estèphe
Review Date: 06-11-2019
in 2010 the nights were much cooler so this actually allowed the grapes to develop very balance flavors. This Cabernet dominant wine has an abundant amount of dark chewy fruits, a bit spice and great classic leather that you expect in Bordeaux wines. It is an outstanding wine for an incredible price.

2018 Dragonette Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara Rosé
Review Date: 06-10-2019
Textured, creamy, light but flavorful Rose'. Great to be consumed on a casual night or pair it with salads, lighter dishes such as grilled chicken or enjoy with lighter fish. It is so wonderful when you can recommend a Rose' with confidence to a someone who likes a little more depth and complexity in their wine. Wild strawberry, watermelon, citrus notes of ripe orange and a blast of juicy acidity.

2017 GRÜNER by Etz Grüner Veltliner Kamptal (1L)
Review Date: 06-10-2019
have you ever imagined if Summer was liquid and you could drink it in the form of wine, how would it taste? This is that wine that will put an end to your wondering. It is crisp, light, bright mild acidity.The classic pepper nose and a soft tangy green apple tone. It is a perfect Summer sipper by the pool, in the backyard or simply in your home. It also is the absolute party wine that will please the crowd. Enjoy it on its own but it also pairs well with roasted vegetables such as asparagus, Brussels Sprouts, all kinds of Salads and seafood.

2001 Coufran, Haut-Médoc
Review Date: 06-10-2019
What a pleasant surprise 2001 vintage has become! This vintage held itself so beautifully and the wines have become more elegant and sophisticated by time. Beautiful flavor profile of plum and cherries, medium yet abundant with flavors body, sweet soft tannin and great smooth finish.Enjoy this wine now and put some aside since there is still a good 5-6 years left of the liveliness of it.

2016 Chante Cigale Châteauneuf-du-Pape
Review Date: 05-07-2019
In this fascinating wine by Chante Cigale, there is a notable length of dark juice that can have almost a jam-like consistency followed by a deep purple color and spice. It has just a touch of earthiness with gamy flavors that have hints of tar and leather. 2016 was very ideal year for Southern Rhone. Ideal weather in September and October specifically gave grapes time to fully ripen and the perfection of the weather transfers to the taste profile of this elegant, tasty but so affordable Chateauneuf Du Pape. Try and believe for yourself.

2017 Domaine de Fondrèche Ventoux Rouge
Review Date: 05-07-2019
where the wines are produced along the lower slopes of the Ventoux mountain and at the foot of the Vaucluse Mountains. It is a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 20% Mourvedre. Dark fruits such as Cassis, Blackberries, very textured and layered along with pleasant floral aromas. It is well Structured with great tannin also incredibly lush, spiced and balanced. It pairs perfectly with grilled and stewed meats like beef, veal, pork, chicken and of course game and definitely holds up well to hearty dishes like cassoulet. Plan a nice dinner with this gorgeous wine for friends and family.

2018 Domaine la Colombe Coteaux Varois en Provence Rosé
Review Date: 05-07-2019
What can I say about a wine that is elegant, light, crisp, refreshingly mineral driven and will not require a budget? I think I said what needs to be said. I can drink big red wines even in Hot summer days of Los Angeles but when I tried this liquid feather like Rose' that had flavor, personality and elegance, I kind of questioned myself for not drinking this wine all the time! So do yourself a favor and get a taste of this mind blowing Rose'. Your welcome!!

2015 Pinna Fidelis Crianza Ribera del Duero
Review Date: 05-07-2019
A more zen version of a Napa cab is this big, bold and textured wine. It is lush, rich but with plenty of old-world sensibility and much less overpowering oak finish. It is defiantly a beautiful vibrant wine with depth and noticeable firm body but it is so balanced and the dark inky fruit taste profile, mild oak, a touch of spice all work in such harmony that you can enjoy this voluptuous wine without feeling overwhelmed. It is a very food friendly red wine. so go on and give yourself a chance to try this exciting special wine for such an affordable price.

2016 Luli Santa Lucia Highlands Syrah
Review Date: 04-30-2019
For The Love of wine! This wine is a masterpiece. It is the result of teamwork between renowned winemaker Jeff Pisoni and Master Sommelier Sara Floyd. The wine is deep purple in color with abundant aroma of blueberries and violets with layers of complexity framed by firm but ripe tannins along with a hint of leather and clove. It was fermented with 50% whole cluster inclusion and was aged in 20% new oak for 18 months. This very special wine is beauty-in-a-bottle and is easily one of THE best $20 wines on the market.

2016 Kalinda Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 04-28-2019
A magnificent Sonoma Cab that makes you believe it is possible to enjoy a wine without emptying your bank account! Dark ripe fruit, dark cocoa powder, lush and approachable. It is the perfect Sonoma style Cab that is great with or without food. Due to its satisfying amount of fruit and a mild tannin, it is enjoyable on its own but because it is a full-bodied wine with the oomph food needs, pair it with pasta dishes, cured meat and soft cheese plates and enjoy!
