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 –  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.

Wine Review - Lucas & Lewellen Malbec 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed this wine! Pouring it into the glass the legs lingered along the sides and the delectable aromas included dark berry, earth, purple plum and cherry. On the palate, there were intense notes of cherries and vanilla spice. The finish was semi-dry and smooth with mild tannins and acidity.

Wine Review - Educated Guess Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Educated Guess 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon was purchased based on...an educated guess. I was searching for a Cabernet to serve with beef tenderloin for an upcoming dinner party. The label intrigued me and when I read that it was a Napa Cab, I decided I couldn't go wrong. I'm glad my 'educated guess' was correct - this is a great Cabernet for the price.
