Be a true trendsetter and cozy up with a late summer red. Summer calls for diaphanous red wine grapes that allow fresh fruits to shine without the deep, dar... Read More

  • Mokelumne Glen Vineyards Riesling Lodi German Collection 2008


    Meh - I've had better. A bit dry for riesling. Subtle aroma. If you like dry wine, but find Chard too bitter, try this one. I wish they made a late harvest riesling. Read More

  • Mokelumne Glen Vineyards Kerner Lodi 2006


    It says off-dry but still a little too dry for me. German style wines are light & crisp. I think these wines go well with fruit & cheese trays, spicy sausage, brats & mustard. Read More
