Incredible wines. Extremely ageable and far better than many other high profile California wines at this price point and higher. I got lost trying to find the winery way out in Oregon House, but the line-up was worth the drive.
Another beauty from Clos Saron.
Zin and Cab? That's weird, no? However, this seemingly unnatural union is working for Paraduxx. Red blends are where I tend to find my favorite wines - think Bordeaux and the Rhone, and forget Pinot Noir exists for moment. This wine is supple, rich and goes on and on, and better still I have no issue opening it immediately, It's ready now. It's my - I desperately need an awesome wine for dinner tonight, not in 2015 - wine.
Just had this on Friday night (3/18). Peaking now! Richly colored with nice honey and apple cider notes. Delightful. Not nearly as decadent as other dessert wines, which made it an easy sipper and a perfect way to close the meal. The alcohol content is a mere 11%.
I didn't try this wine, but our North Carolina buyer came back from a tasting last week and announced this as the BEST Chenin EVER. Thereupon he immediately puchased this wine that very day for our wine.com customers. Thought you might like to know it made a big impression on Bill.
My mother in law's last name is Tait, so I crack up everytime I see this wine. It's quintessential Barossa, meaning it's decadent in all the best ways. Typically, these are high alcohol wines so I'd plan a savory meal of BBQ chicken or ribs before unscrewing this heavy duty beauty. Yum.
I had a chance to meet Charles Smith late last year, what a crazy dude! I have tried some great wines and some so-so wines, this one is a very good one. Off-dry and begging for something spicy to eat it with. Screw cap is a nice touch and keeps things casual.
I sampled this Schug at our San Francisco headquarters before we brought this in and enjoyed it. It's a likeable wine and takes the middle road as far as chardonnay goes. Cirtrusy and tart in all the right places. This is not an oak bomb or fruit bomb if that's what you're are searching for.
I finally had chance to try this wine after many years of eyeing it on the site. I was pleased to find that it did indeed live up the reviews (which isn't always so). It had the depth and complexity that one rightly expects from a wine at this price point. It's an extremely good Merlot.
Year after year this is my "go to" cab. When friends ask me to pick out a wine for them, I suggest the Phoenix. It has typical Australian suppleness and is sufficiently complex to be interesting all on its own. It is great complement to food.
