A semi-sweet white wine with hints of tangerine and tart zesty lemon, our version of a margarita.
“This is the Life” Winer

Wine: Seghesio Sonoma Zinfandel 2012
Type: Red, Dry

Lush black fruit with wonderful spicy finish and nice, balanced tannins

The “Timeless” Winer

Wine: Faithful Hound 2011
Type: Red, Dry
Vineyard: Mulderbosch Winery (South Africa)

Buy local or find it at

The color is of rich ruby with the darkness of plum.  The scent of cedar and anise or licorice hit the nose with a lovely subtlety. I found the tannins smoky with only a mild oak flavor.  It went exceedingly well with an intimate dinner of rare prime rib, steamed asparagus and baked potato.  Mmmm.

The “Hippy” Winer

Wine: Acrobat Pinot Gris 2013
Type: White, Dry
Vineyard: King Estate Winery (Oregon)

Buy local or find it at

Excellent color, clean and crisp. The flavors of apple, pear and even melons are evident but none overpowers the others creating a beautiful lasting finish on the tongue. Excellent with an antipasto tray featuring dry cheeses and smoked oysters.
