Murdoch James High Block Pinot Noir 2013
91 Points Wine Enthusiast
"Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2013 Blue Rock Pinot Noir gives notes of black cherries, warm cranberries and red currants with suggestions of dusty earth, baking spices and cedar. Medium-bodied with plenty of weight and generosity of flavors in the mouth framed by medium to firm grainy tannins and lively acid, it concludes with persistent earthy notes."
Vin de Savoie Rosé 2016
"Bright orange-pink. High-pitched red berry, orange zest and floral scents, joined by a chalky mineral nuance that builds in the glass. Taut and sharply focused in the mouth, offering sappy strawberry and tangerine flavors and a hint of candied rose. There's a distinctly cool, graceful character to this wine that I really enjoy. Closes silky and quite long, with suave floral and mineral notes lingering. For such a lithe wine, there is no lack of concentration here."
Blue - Vinho Verde 2016
A deliciously fresh and soft young wine from Portugal, it is just off dry: really more light and crisp. Its bright color and pineapple aromas are followed by lemon and tight citrus flavors are lifted by a prickle on the tongue. An excellent accompaniment to fish and shell fish, white meats and salads. This is a perfect summer drink.
