Sonoma-Loeb Pinot Noir
I first had wines from Sonoma-Loeb last March while I was in the Sonoma Valley. I immediately fell in love with this fun and playful Pinot Noir. It has the wonderful taste of Cherry Coke, a tell-tale sign of Sonoma Pinot. The wine will eventually open up to reveal notes of rose hips, pomegranate, and baking spices. This is a wine that’s got be looking at California Pinot in a whole new way.
Domane Wachau Riesling
Cristal clear straw yellow with green reflections; present and pronounced on the nose, ripe stone fruit, delicate citrus, hints of exotic fruit; on the palate juicy apricot, white peach and subtle hints of quince; an elegant structure; very fresh, crisp and well balanced by a great acidity and a dense fruit; long finish!
Loosen Brothers 'Dr. L' Riesling
Trust me, I’m a doctor…
This Riesling blends the taste of plum, apple, and lemon to provide a sweet and fruity finish. It’s the perfect prescription for hydration during this Arkansas summer.
Ridge Vineyards Lytton Springs
The grapes that make up this “field blend” are hand harvested from the eastern half of Ridge’s estate in Lytton Springs, CA. The vineyard is planted with 100-year-old vines of Zinfandel and other complementary varietals. The wine is dark with silky tannins and notes of raisin, plum, and baking spices. Enjoy this wine by itself or pair it with cured meats, sharp cheeses, or roasted vegetables.
This crisp, smooth rosé has hints of ripe strawberries and fresh flowers. This tastes like a warm day by the pool and will class up any taco truck experience. If you’ve never tried rosé before, start with this one!
