What I like about wine:

There is a huge amount of complexity, which lends itself well to learning some truly interesting things. The myriad of flavors you can find if you look is incredible, and a good bottle is one of my favorite things you can drink.

    MacMurray Ranch Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2007
    Sold Out $25.99
    This is one of the brighter reds I've had recently, and the fruits are very red and tart with some mellow spiciness. Seems fairly medium-bodied, and it's very easy to drink. The finish seems a bit rough but its a pleasant enough woody end. I'd give this a 87, and is a nice red if your looking for something less brooding. Went exceedingly well with cranberry pork, I expect this would excel at thanksgiving.

    Martin Codax Albarino 2008
    Sold Out $16.79
    2012 vintage available for $16.99
    I enjoyed this rather a lot. In particular, it was refreshing to encounter a white wine that was so unashamedly unoaked and left all the flavor to the grapes. It starts off with a nice golden pour and enough body to hold up. The first mouth is very crisp and bright, with a strong taste of tart apples and a bit of citrus. The acidity keeps it all lively and the finish is a final burst of fruit before it starts to fade. It is pleasantly dry and the entire experience was very positive. I'd give this a solid 90, and would readily recommend it if you're getting tired of vanilla, smoke, and woody flavors. It's also a very good wine to experience the huge difference oak exposure can have on a wine (provided you have a good oaked white to compare with). I had this with a simple alfredo and it worked quite well; the acidity gives it enough bite to cut through almost any cream or cheese dish.

    Gascon Malbec 2008
    Sold Out $13.99
    2013 vintage available for $13.99
    The texture of this wine is my favorite thing about it, it's full and velvety and has a wonderfully smooth finish. The nose is dark berries, and the flavor has good fruit to it with a hint of something spicy. Very easy to drink and everyone enjoyed it.
