“Hops ‘r Better” Winer

Wine: 2013 Vermentino
Type: White
Vineyard: Danza Del Sol Winery

Buy local 

“I rated this wine an 80 in Quini with 10/10 for my opinion – you need to get your hands on this wine.Bright appearance, with full-intense aromas. A medium-bodied white. The finish is subtle-layered. An overall good Vermentino from the United States.”

“This is the Life” Winer

Wine: Tannat 2013
Type: Red, dry
Vineyard: Don Rodolfo

Buy local or find it at

An intense red color with dark purple hues. On the nose, aromas of rich red berries and black currant, with hints of chocolate. It is a bold, expressive and exotic wine with soft tannins.

The “Timeless” Winer

Wine: Dancing Bull Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Type: Red, Dry
Vineyard: Dancing Bull Winery (California)

Buy local or find it at

I was looking for an inexpensive ‘quick pick’ at the local booze-a-teria, when I spotted this one hiding in the pack.  The label reminded me of a Hungarian wine I had years ago that was plenty spicy and just full of itself (more on that one another time).  This was a winning pick with plenty of body and a good finish.  It really matched with the kebabs we had for dinner.  Alas, neither made it to the leftover section of the fridge.

The “Hippy” Winer

Wine: Smoking Loon Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Type: Red, Dry
Vineyard: Smoking Loon Winery (California)

Buy local or find it at

This was a re-visit wine for me, having first tasted it at the beginning of my voyage through the world of wines.  The color was beautiful, the flavor as clean and robust as I recalled but, perhaps because of my experience, full of new subtleties.  It is an old traveling companion who has returned.

 We hope you enjoy our picks and would love to hear what you think,
