    Tasca d'Almerita Leone d'Almerita 2011
    Sold Out
    $19.99
    Style: Light & Crisp
    What a wonderful wine to bring me out of the winter doldrums! A subtle nose of honeysuckle, apricot, and white peach with something mineral to temper it entices you to your first sip. Juicy acidity lures you to sip after sip until very suddenly until your class is gone! Just barely off dry with lots of fruity deliciousness. This one is going into my spring— summer rotation.

    Novellum Chardonnay 2011
    Sold Out
    2012 vintage available for $12.99
    Style: Light & Crisp
    A gorgeous wine for the price! It is an unusual gem for being at once fruity, lush, viscous, and crisp all at once and in that order. It has the crispness to represent its region and yet voluptuousness to be mysterious as to its origin. A fun and sexy surprise of a wine. Highly recommended. It is a steal at this price and would be a contender with wines three and four times the price.

    Rex Hill Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2010
    Sold Out
    2011 vintage available for $29.99
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    This is an outstanding Pinot for the price. Several friends at a holiday cocktail party asked what the heck they were drinking because it was so outstanding. Plenty of character and a mid- to full-sized body for a Pinot. This one is definitely going to make regular appearances in my wine rack.

    Joseph Phelps Freestone Vineyards Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2009
    Sold Out
    2012 vintage available for $44.99
    Not at all your typical Pinot. If you love savory, dry reds, this one's for you. Rather sharp to the nose and taste when first opened, it needs a good half an hour to an hour to open up nicely. It is a deep, dark ruby in the glass. I smell dried herbs and tea on the nose with just a hint of tart plum, but don't be misled: there isn't much fruit to this wine. It is ultra dry with notes of fresh peppers and a finish tasting of iron. This wine is not child's play and is particularly edgy for a Pinot.

    Ponzi Pinot Gris 2011
    Sold Out
    2013 vintage available for $16.99
    Style: Light & Crisp
    A good wine for all seasons, this Pinot Gris reminds me of biting into a Granny Smith apple: it has a hint of sweetness with plenty of acidity to offset it without having an unpleasant bite. I believe the sweetness comes mostly from the slightly aromatic nose. I tasted hints of melon and apple. It ends crisply with a bit of a pleasant lingering finish. I will certainly buy this again. A nice wine for the price.

    I would almost give it four stars. It is very easy drinking and would go with casual fare best. I don't know whether it has enough character to stand alone. I would buy it again just to see if I feel the same way.

    Tikal Patriota 2010

    2012 vintage available for $19.99
    Style: Earthy & Spicy
    Not bad. A tad sharp with a bit of bite at first but mellows as it breathes.

    Mitolo The Jester Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
    Sold Out
    2011 vintage available for $19.99
    Style: Earthy & Spicy
    Not bad, but not great. It seems too tight and sharp. Perhaps it will improve with age, but I'm not anxious to buy it again to find out. Perhaps I had an off bottle.

    Crios de Susana Balbo Torrontes 2011
    Sold Out
    2013 vintage available for $13.99
    Style: Fruity & Smooth
    A surprisingly good wine for the price. This bottle was bright and off-dry, I'd say even though the pros call it dry. I believe that's because it offers an abundance of mouthwatering fruit that leaves you thirsting for more. I served it on 11/30/2012 at home for a date night with champagne mustard chicken with fresh tarragon over brussel sprouts and mushrooms to delectable effect! I would surely buy this again.
