2018 Bodegas Puelles Blanco Rioja
Review Date: 09-09-2019
100% Viura. Crisp and clean with notes of green apples, citrus and herbs with good minerality and acid with zero oak influence. A great little wine for $12.99. This is a super refreshing bottle of white Rioja that could be a great replacement for a Sancerre or a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. People often overlook white Rioja but one taste of this and you will realize that is a mistake.

2015 Tongue in Groove "Cabal Vineyard" Pinot Noir Waipara Valley
Review Date: 08-21-2019
A full-bodied single vineyard Pinot Noir from New Zealand that delivers on quality and price. It has plenty of fruit but is well balanced with a nice bouquet of savory spices on the nose with some silky tannins on the finish that lead one to think it can be drunk now or kept for another 5-8 years.

2017 John Duval "Entity" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia
Review Date: 08-20-2019
Dark and rich fruit flavors on the nose. Clean fruit with no apparent oak. Well balanced sweet fruit and a nice long finish. This wine is all about the harmonious integration of fruit, oak and texture. Quite a steal at $35 that is made by an icon of the Australian wine industry with access to some exceptional fruit sources. This is classic Barossa Shiraz without the weight and oak sweetness that is all too common.

2012 Franck Bonville "Pur Oger" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne
Review Date: 08-06-2019
This is a beautiful blanc de blancs Champagne from the 2012 vintage. Loads of minerality from the chalk soils and a dosage of only 2g/L provide great focus and acidity to this wine. This was my favorite of the Pur series from the villages of Oger, Avize and Le Mesnil. All Grand Cru fruit.

2016 La Massa "La Massa" Toscana
Review Date: 07-30-2019
This wine has lovely fruit flavors of plums and black currants. It has great weight and density all framed by nice acidity, making it very well balanced. I would love to lay some down and see it evolve over the next 5-7 years. A lot of wine for your money. Highly recommended!
