This is a very light Pinot Noir. It hails from Sonoma County, California in the Russian River Valley area. I recommend drinking this win as of 2012, it’s mature enough to enjoy, doesn’t need anything except a meal to drink it with. I would describe this as a grape jelly and dried fruit sort of flavor. It has a light to medium body and just a tiny hint of heat. It’s refreshing for a red wine and newbie friendly.
What a great refreshing Chardonnay. If it’s a warm summer night and you just want to chill out and enjoy yourself, this is a great choice. This 2009 elixir has a smooth elegance and abundant orchard fruit flavors. Hailing from Sonoma County it displays unconventional citrus, mineral and slight acidity that you don’t normally see. It has a very subdued oak taste and a perfect texture to create a well balanced and delicious Chardonnay that won’t break the bank. This wine came in at just $12.99 at the time of purchase.
This non-vintage sparkling wine comes in at about $20 when purchased locally. I really prefer a Brut to any other kind of sparkling wine or champagne. This particular sparkling wine really exemplifies the crisp dryness of a quality brut. While it’s not nearly as good as Veuve Clicquot, which is my all time favorite non-vintage bubbly, it’s a good choice for ballin on a budget as it’s simple, enjoyable and refreshing.
Like other other quality sparkling wines it’s blended with oak-aged reserve wines for one to three years. The grapes are grown in Anderson Valley. Look out for a rich bold flavor, very crisp, dry, spice, cinnamon and apple aromas.
