Holly scored this wine: 85/100

Like tucking into a ripe, yellow apple still warm from the sun this wine is supple on the palate with further notes of apricot and almonds. It's unoaked, so the fruit really shines. A lemon, zesty finish livens up the finish.

Easy on the pocket book. Easy on the palate. This uncomplicated bottle is just the right amount of cherry fruit, medium texture and juicy acidity.

A nice example of what can be done with Baco Noir: juicy berry fruit with a hint of warming spice; notes of mineral and leather on the palate with a lively finsh. 'Tis the season for this great barbecue wine.

Holly scored this wine: 83/100

A great example of some bottled Mexican sunshine. Ripe and full on the palate with lots of juicy, dark berry fruit, some minerality, and a little spice on the nose. All together, with the dried fruit and lavender on the long finish, make this a good deal of a wine.

Eau Vivre Winery and Vineyards Pinot Noir 2008

Light and bright with some vibrant cherry aromas, violets, and dried herbs. The crisp, lively texture and fruity finish makes this a good food wine.

Memorable Wine

Iron Horse Fumé Blanc - I don't remember the vintage but I had it with a potato encrusted dollop of goat's cheese and it was amazing.


First Wine

Lonesome Charlie


Unusual Wine Experience

I'm not sure... maybe I had too much wine that night and can't remember?


Current Fav Wine

Right now I'm loving rosé.
