Added Apr 22 at 8:55pmFairly big RRV syrah from Balletto. The nose is loaded with ripe dark cherries and a good hit of smoke, some earthiness and a bit of tanned leather. There's ripe black berries on the tongue but the fruit is just starting to fade, some more of the smokiness/leather, fine grained tannins, medium acidity and a medium long finish.

Added Apr 22 at 6:19pmBeautiful Horse Heaven Hills rose of Cab Franc. The nose is crisp and clean with a hint of bright red cherry. On the palate is more bright cherry, ripe strawberry and touch of melon, bright acidity and a nice finish. One of the nicer roses so far this spring.

Added Apr 20 at 7:46pmNice enough Sonoma County blend of sauv blanc and sauv musque. The nose is all about ripe grapefruit and a bit of something floral. Ripe white grapefruit on the palate, decent acidity but with a bit of a metallic twinge on the back end. Liked this but enjoyed the Rivers Reach more.

Added Apr 18 at 6:08pmReally nice Rose of Pinot Noir from Domaine Drouhin. Crisp bright red cherry, a touch of melon, some not too ripe strawberry, a good hit of acidity and a medium finish. Last of all of our 2013 rose, good way to end the vintage.

Added Apr 17 at 5:22pmVery interesting Tokaji Furmint Sec. Normally these grapes are used to produce an awesome sweet dessert wine so when I saw this dry version I had to try it. On the nose is a nice blast of something floral, akin to honeysuckle. The palate is loaded with ripe pear, honey, mandarin orange and a touch of lemon pith. There is a bit of a mouthcoating affect, medium acidity and a semi-long finish. Will definitely purchase again.

Added Apr 8 at 7:54pmFairly nice Sicilian red from the frappato grape. Light red in color with fresh raspberry and red cherry on the nose. A somewhat light body is supported with nice acidity and smooth tannins. There's mainly red and black cherry present with just a touch of mint tea on a medium length finish.

Added Apr 6 at 6:53pmJust a fantastic Napa Sauv Blanc from Apsara. This is not about grapefruit but more subtle and balanced citrus and stone fruit. There's plenty of nice ripe white peach, green melon, a hint of lime, a touch of grassiness, medium acidity and a medium finish.
