Wine Review - Shannon Ridge Urgency Pinot Noir

Shannon Ridge Winery lies in the lesser known California wine region of Lake County. Located north of Napa Valley, the wines produced in the Lake County AVA are influenced by its high elevation, volcanic soils rich with minerals, and by Clear Lake which is California's largest inland body of water. This wine region has over 30 wineries with over 9,000 acres of vineyards.

Wine Review - Henschke Henry's Seven 2017

In the Henry’s Seven, this addition of the aromatic white grape viognier has given the blend a fragrant lift of some extra pepper and enhanced the violet aromas. These are joined by fresh plum and more earthy, spicy characters. It has also allowed the wine to retain its youthful purple hued vibrance and added its weight to the fuller body.

Wine Review –  Tormaresca Neprica 2015 Red Blend Puglia

The 2015 (13% alc./$10.00) starts with an intense dark red in the glass. There are strong aromas of ripe purple plum and dark cherry, with tastes of black licorice (which gives it a slightly medicinal taste), cherries and ripe strawberries. The tastes become more complex and smoother as the wine opens.
