  • 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

    Meh - I've had better. Nice light bubbly moscato. Not as sweet as some, slight bitter grapefruit. I got it at half price and it was worth that. 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. Their label leaves a lot to be desired; very blah looking and says nothing about the contents. But oh those contents ! Goes down EZ - just need a straw. Read More

  • 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
