Wine Recommendations - These wines were sent to us as samples.

2017 Green Ranch Riesling - priced around $29.

  • Hands down one of the best dry Rieslings I've ever had.
  • Very fruity with flavors and aromas of citrus and stonefruits
  • Healthy level of acidity making it a perfect pairing partner with seafood, pork or Thai dishes
  • Delicious and worth you hard earn cash

2017 Starscape vineyard Gewurztraminer - priced around $29.

  • I am a sucker for Gewurztraminer wine and this one delivers
  • Very aromatic, fruit and complex with flavors and aromas of lychee (of course it's Gewurz) along with citrus, stonefruit and floral notes
  • Complex, great acidity and a finish that won't quit
  • Pair with Asian dishes and you won't be disappointed

2016 Cartograph Estate Pinot - priced around $68.

  • Coming to you straight from the Russian River Valley, this is Cartograph first Estate Pinot
  • Lots of red fruits: cherries, raspberries with hints of orange blossoms and a slight herbal quality
  • Also the perfect balance of acid and tannins that coated my mouth and inviting me in for another sip (or glass or two)
  • I think pairing this with a mushroom based dish will really make this wine sing
