2013 Dry Creek Vineyard Hertitage Vines Zinfandel
The team at Dry Creek Vineyard never disappoints - and I mean never!   This 2013 Heritage Vines Zinfandel is an inviting medium red color with a basket of dark red fruit on the nose and equally mouth-watering spice and earthy nuances.  While I generally lov...

2011 Baron de Hoen Cave de Beblenheim Pinot Gris
I have to admit, I was very surprised by this wine - in a good way!  From the French Region of Alsace comes the 2011 Pinot Gris Baron de Hoen Cave de Beblenheim.  Often a Pinot Gris drinks well for only 2-3 years, but this wine is in its prime and drinking ...

2012 Krupp Brothers The Doctor Red Wine Blend
I hope you didn't read the title "red wine blend" and think "ehh, I'm a purist and love a single varietal".  It that's the case, you're missing out on A LOT of great wines, including this one.  This is a newly released wine from Krupp Brothers (December 201...

2013 Rodney Strong Sonoma County Chardonnay
The 2013 Rodney Strong Sonoma County Chardonnay is a new release and one that you'll want to add to your warm weather wine line up.  Pale yellow in the glass, I sampled this at 65 degrees and that helped lift the predominant aromas of apple and lemon zest. ...

2012 Rodney Strong Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County
I had the pleasure of tasting this 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County from Rodney Strong Vineyards.  Nice dark garnet color in the glass with sexy legs and a full aroma of plum, black cherry and a hint of oak.  The real kicker in this wine is the full im...

2013 Quady Winery Electra California Moscato
This might be an odd time of year to write about Moscato, as it is generally considered a summertime wine.  But I was intrigued by this bottle and I'm thrilled that I took a leap of faith an opened this in January.  I've found that you can't really put a se...

2012 Rodney Strong Merlot Sonoma County
I love Merlot.  Judge me or not.  Some folks consider Merlot and Chardonnay to be 'beginners wines' because they are so plentiful and everyone produces them.  But if a Merlot is made well and offered at a very fair price, it's a win-win situation.  The 2012...

NV Cooper's Hawk Shiraz
One thing that I enjoy about Cooper's Hawk wines is that they are truly a product of the Midwest.  While CH has branched out as far south as Florida, their roots are in Illinois and the wines are full of ripe fruit and ready to drink when you buy them.  I'v...
