  • Sawtooth Estate Riesling Snake River Valley 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Intriguing baked apple aromas are a touch phenolic and come with notes of tea leaf. Nice acidity and a smooth mouthfeel, with green apple and melon notes. Read More

  • Noble Vines Muscat Canelli Reserve San Bernabe Vineyard 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Oh Yum & OMG ! Most excellent Late Harvest Muscat I think I've ever had. Such a great flavor of pears & lycee. Clean finish, especially for Canelli, and perfect legs.

  • Navarro Vineyards White Blend Mendocino County Edelzwicker 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Nice and inexpensive Mendocino white blend of Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Riesling and Muscat. There's not as much aromatics, as I'd expect for this blend. From the glass there is some nice notes of tangerine, ripe peach, a nice creamy texture, medium acidity and a medium finish. Very good QPR. Read More
