  • 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

  • Mirassou Moscato 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Juicy melon, tangerine and sweet tea aromas on the nose are quite inviting. In the mouth this is light, fresh tasting and fairly mild, and carries notes of orange and sweet tea, with some light effervescence and a hint of grapefruit. Bordering on off-dry, this definitely will please those with a sweet tooth. Read More
