    Snoothrank:

    Lightly nutty, honeyed aromas of green apple and peach. Fresh and lively palate with zesty citrus notes of tangerine, grapefruit and lemon with some stone fruit coming through as well, soft mousse and bright acidity make for a fun, easy drinking selection Read More

  • Bay Bridge Vineyards Moscato NV

    Snoothrank:

  • Been on a bit of a syrah kick recently myself but tonight we had our weekly farmer's market delivery and cooked a (semi) vegetarian dinner of spaghetti squash, tomatoes, onions, feta, basil (and added some crumbled bacon, not in the original recipe so don't tell on me).Opened this interesting white blend of Semillon, Sauv Blanc and Orange Muscat...

  • August is here -- along with warm, steamy weather for most of the country. For some that means switching over to chilled cocktails or beer. What it should really mean for wine drinkers is carefully selecting wines that are well made, delicious, value driven and refreshing.
