"..... I took this one home and loved it! ....."
"This beautiful wine stems from the Loire Valley of France. This Rose is mostly grolleau (which actually is derived from the word "crow"in french...little tidbit caw caw caw!). It's 95% grolleau and has just a drop of cabernet franc(5% to be exact).

Enough history!

This wine opens up with strawberries that engulf your nose and also take over your palette. I took this one home and loved it! I highly recommend this rose!

Rose season!!!!!!!!!!

It's beautiful for the summer, and it almost finishes like a strawberry creamsicle. Hot day, drink and enjoy!!!!!!!

"..... You’d expect Pinot of this quality to cost at least twice ....."
90 points too!

"Sourced from coastal vineyards in multiple regions, this wine offers excellent value. At a time when most under $20 Pinot Noirs taste excessively sappy and sweet, it manages to be bone dry, with earthy undertones tempering its ripe fruit. You’d expect Pinot of this quality to cost at least twice what it does."

"..... This wine clearly over delivers for the price .....”
90 points too!
“Always one of the best values in Argentina and a flagship of the variety and winery, the 2017 Colonia Las Liebres Bonarda Clásica is an easy-to-drink, juicy wine from parral vines in Luján de Cuyo. It fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and aged in concrete vats to allow the grape to keep its full personality without any contact with oak. It's characterful and has the varietal personality, a little rustic, with juicy fruit and a chewy texture, really good with food, a lightish wine of thirst. This wine clearly overdelivers for the price.”

This is for our fans of Josh.....
.....with its softer style. A go-to brand for everyday sipping, this offers easily enjoyable aromas of dense blueberry, menthol, cedar and leather. The fruit-forward palate shows red cherry, bramble and red plum, with just enough tannin and acidity to stand up to dinner. An excellent Cab for the warmer months.

"..... visibly darker color and thicker concentration ....."
93 points!
“I tasted this wine after bottling but before its commercial release. The 2015 Barbaresco will hit the market on September 1st. It was scheduled to be released in October, but because Produttori del Barbaresco is already out of stock of the 2014 Barbaresco, they decided to move this release up and shorten waiting times. I mention that because you definitely don't want to pop the cork too early. The 2015 vintage opens to a visibly darker color and thicker concentration compared to recent past vintages. Next to the upcoming 2016 and 2017 editions, we can expect 2015 to be the most fruit-forward of the three. You get dark tones of plum and blackberry with dry tannins at the rear.”
