Eyrie Pinot Noir Estate 2006
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $37.99
Opened it up and got huge reductive notes. Went away after 45 minutes in the decanter. Worth the wait - delicate yet savory. Red & wild fruits, spices, lovely meaty characteristic in the palate. Great finish. Will do well with a couple more years in bottle.

Excellent white - good, round texture, but with a pronounced acid kick. Stone fruit, slightly floral and crsip finish. Great spring/summer wine, but could also hold up to food.

Liked this wine a lot, would easily drink it on its own as pairing food is more difficult. While balanced, it is a big and jammy wine, with lots of dark fruit and juicy berry flavors. Not too many tannins or apparent acid. What you'd call fruit forward. But like I said, really tasty.

Fontanafredda Briccotondo Barbera 2006
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $14.99
This Barbera is a delight! It's got a core of black fruit, backed by good acid, smooth tannins and a nice spice. Balanced finish. A steal at the price, this would be my gourmet pizza wine.

This was a wonderful wine! Great acidity, ripe Riesling fruits, a hint of sweetness. Wonderful for summer or any spicy food. So refreshing!

I give it 5 stars for it's category - Oregon Pinot Gris. It delivers exactly what you want from Pinot Gris - ripe stone fruit, a touch of spice and a creamy texture that is still crisp & dry. Not sweet at all, but very ripe. Finishes with clean acidity.

Smooth and supple, this is what could be termed a cocktail wine. Great ripe fruit, lovely spice and herbs, and it’s balanced. The fruit is sweet and ripe and easy going down. Not a wine if you’re seeking amazing structure but this wine is layered with flavors and quite delicious with meat.

Thought not complex, this Pinot Noir is smooth & balanced, with ripe red fruits, warm spices and a lingering finish - as mentioned in the review, it is very versatile. Enjoyed it with a mixed grill (chicken, pork & steak) and it was a good match for all!

Boxes are back! We have this box sitting in our fridge and while cooking dinner I just use the tap to pour myself a glass of this wine - crisp, grassy, grapefruit-y Sauvignon Blanc. Well balanced and fresh every night, even after a week. This is the perfect wine to keep stocked in your fridge this summer. Great for warm weather, with seafood - 4 bottles worth of wine in here! Can't beat it!

This is everything I love about Barbera - concentrated red fruits, dusty tannins, excellent acidity and a lingering finish. Everything is in balance and it's a great match for many foods.
