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 - 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.
