"..... I literally did a happy dance in the stock room....."
"I'm so excited one of my "CRAZY" favorite wines, I requested to get into the store came in!!!! I literally did a happy dance in the stock room. I digress this fabulous wine is Lucchetti Lacrima di Morro di Alba (try saying that three times fast) from Marche Italy! The actual grape is Lacrima and in Italian it means teardrop and rightfully so because it's so good it brings tears to your eyes. It's a grape in my opinion like no other. You're going to want to inhale this one in. The nose is captivating with violets, crushed herbs, some black currants, and a hint of licorice. I'd wear it as perfume if I could (and maybe have)....... In your mouth the aromatics of the violets, crushed herbs, and the currants persist and engulf you. It delicately lingers on your tongue with a soft and smooth finish. I'm salivated just writing about it. It's definitely a wine you MUST experience you won't be disappointed!"

"..... a terrific wine and an excellent value....."
“Sourced entirely from vineyards owned by the Hugel family, this wine bears an “Estate” inscription on the label that is very much worth watching for. It gets off to a great start with a very bight, expressive bouquet and follows up with a fresh, zesty, lemony finish that just won’t quit. Energetic and taut for now but built to unwind and improve for years to come, this is a terrific wine and an excellent value.”

"..... Don't miss this fabulous effort....."
“Readers looking for a classic, incredibly well made Pinot Noir to buy by the case should look no further than winemaker Josh Jensen's 2014 Calera Pinot Noir from the Central Coast AVA. Supple, sexy, seamless and elegant, with classic Calera notes of raspberries, mulled cherries, spice and dried soil, it has no hard edges, a core of sweet fruit and a beautiful finish that keeps you coming back to the glass. I'm sure it will keep for 4-5 years (probably longer), but there's no need to delay gratification. Don't miss this fabulous effort and bravo to the Calera team for delivering this level of quality at the price.”

"..... positively brilliant and delicious....."
“Merry Edwards' sauvignon blanc is consistently among the top two or three produced in the United States. What sets it apart is its remarkable complexity, structure and harmony. On the first sip you may be reminded of ripe tropical fruits. On the second, citrus notes emerge. Then there is the note of white peach that is a signature characteristic of the finest Bordeaux blanc. On another sip you might find the tangerine and Meyer lemon note that signals Sancerre. Texturally, the wine exhibits a rich, oily mouthfeel, but with firm acidity and telltale traces of minerality. In a word, this vintage of Merry Edwards sauvignon blanc is positively brilliant and delicious.”

"..... sensationally concentrated, yet well-balanced....."
"Do you remember the days when Australia wines were riding high? I do, producing incredible tasting wine after another and all for a great value. Then the mass bottlers came in and crushed the market leaving it for dead. Well I’ve begun to see a glimmer of life. This Thomas Goss Cabernet Sauvignon comes from McLaren Vale one of Australia's most brilliant wine regions. Looking for sensationally concentrated, yet well-balanced Cabernet Sauvignon? This has great depth, fabulous purity, full body, and superbly integrated tannin as well as acidity. A classic!"

"..... extraordinary elegance and silky mouthfeel....."
"Nero d’Avola is the grape variety that best represents Sicily’s winemaking identity. This rich and modern red wine, obtained from grapes scrupulously chosen from the estate finest selection, expresses an absolute purity, an extraordinary elegance and silky mouthfeel. This wine features a rich, structured and velvety finish with a polished aftertaste. This is easily one of my favorite Nero d’Avolas."
