Orange

Loveblock Orange Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Marlborough, New Zealand
3 days ago

Kristin scored this wine: 90/100

"Won't you take me to, Funky-town!" Sweet spicy orange, clementine, apricot preserves- refreshing herbal and minerally finish. Medium plus body, ready for action with some fish, pork or poultry tacos!

Loveblock Pinot Gris 2018

Marlborough, New Zealand
3 days ago

Kristin scored this wine: 91/100

"Love me tender, love me sweet!" Stone fruit, juicy melon, aromatic orange blossom, minerals - full bodied, mouth-coating yet refreshing acidity to follow and cleanse the palate, finishing dry. Pair with pork, poultries (perhaps with peach chutney!) or on it's own in the afternoon sunshine.

Icellars Estate Winery Merlot 2017

Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada
49 days ago

Kristin scored this wine: 91/100

Plush, velvety plum, cigar box, vanilla, coffee, cocoa beans, cinnamon, flint minerality - full bodied, soft tannins, warming alcohol. Like a hug for your mouth and soul!

Reserve Red

Icellars Estate Winery Reserve Red 2017

Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada
49 days ago

Kristin scored this wine: 89/100

A Powerhouse red! Red berries, dark fruit, espresso, dark chocolate, hazelnut, plum, tobacco, eucalyptus - explosive full body on the palate with a lingering finish. Dark chocolate (not too sweet!) or a meaty ragu will do!

St. Davids Bench Vineyard

Ch√Ęteau des Charmes St. Davids Bench Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

St. David's Bench, Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada
49 days ago

Kristin scored this wine: 90/100

Smoky plum, red and black currant, capsicum, tea leaves, coffee, licorice, tobacco leaf on both the nose and palate - solid tannins, full body with balancing acidity, lasting finish. Roast beef please!

Current Fav Wine

I am polyamorous when it comes to wine. BUT I DO love my "cheap and cheerful" Segura Vidas Cava at the moment :)
