We have selected some of the top home grown Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling from some of the leading producers in the country. The criteria is to offer outstanding wines guided by their respective terroir, varietal characteristics and value for money, we have also included an Italian Vernaccia from Tuscany which is very distinctive and yes...very aromatic. For those of you tired of the same old Chardonnay or some of the over the top and in many cases sweet Sauvignon Blanc, this is for you, if you haven’t tried any of them before we suggest that you do because they are among the best to be found and yet… very affordable. – Description from iskicm

  • 2003 Morgenster Stellenbosch 13.5%A bit reticent on the nose but with super finely delineated black currant fruit topped with nuanced tomato leaf, black olive and Necco wafer notes. Really lovely nose that recalls fine Bordeaux and gains depth and complexity with air. Rich and slightly chewy up front with plenty of acidity that gives the flavors... Read More

  • Fritz Winery Pinot Noir Reserve Russian River Valley 2007


    Cola and spice on the nose with a nice herbal/carob background note framing somewhat wild berry fruit. The fruit is multifaceted with hints of juniper, boysenberry, blueberry and cherry. Super smooth and supple in the mouth though this has nicely refreshing acidity. Really light and elegant in the mouth with taut black cherry flavors and gentle... Read More

  • Seven Hills "Pentad" Walla Walla Valley Washington 2006


    65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petite Verdot, 7% Carmenere, 7% Cabernet Franc, 7% MalbecSmells rather minty with a pruny edge to the dark chocolate-covered coffee bean-accented black cherry fruit. With air, this reveals a smoky, nettle tone, some vanilla nuances and an ashy campfire accent. On the palate, this starts out with some dried fruit notes... Read More

  • Novy "rosella's Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Syrah 2008


    This is dark and brooding on the nose with inky, stemmy, herbal accents to the slatey blue and black fruits that are backed up my gently smoky dried meat tones. Really exceptionally fresh on entry with a wonderful to the bright blackberry and boysenberry fruit. The tannins are fine and polished allowing the fruit to really pop on the palate. N... Read More

  • On the Wine Trail in ItalyWhen Alfonso Cevola says he is on the wine trail, he's not talking just talking local but across the two countries he calls home: Italy and America. He says he's "drawn to the open spaces of America and the small vineyards of Italy." Alfonso not only has a good nose but a good eye as well, as the photos within posts pro... Read More

  • On a recent trip to Puglia, Italy, I was fortunate to taste through the wines of tens of producers. There was the usual range of styles -- modern to traditional, blockbuster to table wine -- as well as a full range of varieties.I was familiar with some of the wines and most of the grape varieties but only one really surprised me. First, a little... Read More

  • While much of California’s fame is due to varietal wine, or at least wines that are labeled with a single varietal, there has always been a strong tradition of creating blended wines from the variety of vineyards and grapes that thrive in California. From the original field blends planted by immigrating Italians to the creation of the Meritage ... Read More
