  • Those who know Riesling intimately, and drink it often, can argue that the top Rieslings are some of the greatest white wines in the world. It is interesting to think about its greatness in comparison to another top white variety – Chardonnay. Chardonnay is a chameleon, having a great affinity for expressing winemaking techniques and terroir whi... Read More

  • Avalon California Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    Snoothrank:

    There are many intriguing stories of a mystical island called Avalon. Many stories of King Arthur visiting the island and forging his sword Excalibur there. And tales about the abundant lush gardens, beautiful people, and dreams of paradise were all part of the legendary Isle of Avalon. It was said that the Isle of Avalon was a place of wonder, ...

If you have a minute to help a guy out let me know what you think are the best wines that usually sell for $20 or less. Thanks ! Read More

  • Ryan Patrick Rock Island Red Wahluke Slope 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Complex creamy, vanilla notes on the nose with blackberry and black cherry fruit. More focussed on red fruit in the mouth, with loads of acidity, raspberry and cherry, cream and chocolate, espresso and toast. Towards the finish there is a tannic bite, cocoa and cinnamon, and a long smoky finish.90 pts Read More
