The Eyrie Vineyard Dundee Hills Pinot Blanc

Where has this wine been all my life? I’m a long time member of the Pinot Blanc fan club, but wheeeeeew, was this a welcome sight: a light-bodied wine with tropical notes that wasn’t a Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc. Let me tell you – I. AM. HERE. FOR. IT. This is what I’m drinking all summer long. Get your bottle before I buy it all. [praise hand emoji]

Allegrini Valpolicella Superiore

A well-structured wine, with a soft, long and persistent finish. Brilliant ruby red in color, with a pleasant scent of wild berries. Dry and velvety on the palate, it is characterized by a bitter almond finish. If you’ve ever wanted to get into Italian wines, start here!

  • Mr. Baker

Lolea Sangria No. 2

Bright pale white gold slivery straw color. Rich, fruity aromas and flavors of peach sherbet and candy and nougat with a glycerous, bright, off-dry light-to-medium body and a tingling, fast white grapes and diet-peach-soda finish. A very fruity and candied sangria.

  • Dominique

Saison DuPont

This beer has a beautiful poor, moderately cloudy, with hints of pears and a herby, hidden sweetness. Overall an outstanding satisfying saison!

  • Kalie

Priorat Bluegray

I won’t lie: when I first had this wine I was pretty unimpressed. Thankfully, I gave it a second chance it has quickly become one of my favorite wines from Spain. This wine is bursting with ripe red fruit flavors as well as a strong aroma of rose petals. The tannins here are grippy but still pleasant with plenty of acid to balance them out. Pair this with any protein you can think of, just please, please, please decant it first!

  • Seth

King Estate Pinot Noir

You really can’t miss with this wine. Several months on oak lend spicy tannins which are balanced by delicious dark fruit notes like cherry and blackberry. It’s surprisingly light-bodied in spite of its complex flavors. I tried it with barbeque, chicken, and chocolate cake and was blown away every time!
