  • My admiration for Murrieta’s Well and their winemaker, Robbie Meyer, is no secret. I’m so glad that The Whip and The Spur are available at retail shops across the country, giving folks ample opportunity to experience these wines first-hand.

  • Adobe White 2014

    Snoothrank:

This wine is a nice, enjoyable crisp, aromatic dry fruity white wine which tastes like a cross between a white Loire, and a white Rhone, which makes perfect sense, given the varietals in the blend. It's currently being cl... Read More

  • Domaine Lafage Centenaire 2015

    Snoothrank:

    This is a fat, juicy, creamy southern wine from Roussillon; with the scent of fresh pears and freshly fallen snow. On the palate, you get a panoply of sweet, spicy white fruit - like Bartlett pears and white pepper - with a touch of sweet cream. This rich vintage has produced a great wine with some aging potential (2-3 years) but no need to wai... Read More
