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 ...

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...
