WINES OF THE WEEK
Pike Road Chardonnay 2016
91 Points James Suckling
"This has a very fresh array of pear and apple-pastry aromas, leading to a smoothly delivered palate with attractive build and depth. Holds fresh and neat. Drink now. The Screw cap is a plus!"
The Velvet Devil Merlot 2016
When Hollywood's surprise hit Sideways suddenly spawned anti-Merlot sentiments everywhere, Charles set out to rebuff the movie's unflattering depiction of this great varietal. Pure velvet, deep and delicious black fruit, cedar, tobacco and cassis. It conveys concentrated richness and yet purity and focus. It's so good that it appears the devil made me do it.
Bieler Family Daisy Pinot Grigio 2017
This wine was co-fermented with Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Muscat. The aromas are compelling, with notes of freshly cut apple, petroleum jelly, honeysuckle, peach and pear. There's a beautiful sense of lightness, texture and freshness to the fruit flavors that linger on the finish. The balance is exquisite.
