"..... Best of Show Rosé....."

“I've seen this behind the bar at a variety of beverage purveyors, and I'm happy to be able to recommend such a widely available wine as the warm months wane. It's classic Provencal Rosé, with cherry, watermelon and lemon zest joined by a hint of white pepper. They all soar over the requisite lively acidity and finish in lip smackingly delicious fashion. As the sunsets change to match the color of this wine, ring a bell and drink up. Predominantly Grenache, with Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault and Rolle in the mix. It won Gold and the Best of Show Rosé at the 2017 Sommelier International Wine & Spirits Competition.”

“J. Lohr's 2014 Hilltop Cabernet is of the sort that made Paso Robles Cab famous. It's ripe and juicy, spicy and racy, and priced modestly. With loads of blackberry and blueberry fruit and supple tannins, it's a crowd-pleaser that is primed for stardom during the upcoming grilling season. A platinum award-winner at the 2017 Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition.”

“Grand'Arte is the top range from DFJ Vinhos, highlighting wines that express the individual varieties. Labeled Shiraz rather than Syrah, this is a powerful, spicy, rich wine. Solid tannins and dark black fruits are layered with acidity and ripe plums. With its structure, it will age well for a value-priced wine; drink from 2017. Best Buy!”

"A knock-out effort.....
..... This Ripasso Valpolicella reveals amazing intensity for the price. This subtle yet deeply flavored red shows exceptional balance and integrity. It possesses a measure of additional textural richness and depth. The word "velvety" is a fitting adjective to describe this wines performance. Everything is in the right place."
