“Hops ‘r Better” Winer

Wine: Riesling
Type: White
Vineyard: Ravines Wine Cellars

Buy local 

“Bright-intense appearance, with full aromas of fruity. A medium-full bodied White with fruity flavors. The finish is layered. An overall excellent Riesling from the Finger Lakes District in New York, USA..I rated this wine an 85 in Quini, have had no trouble recommending it to anyone. I’ll definitely be stocking up on it whenever I can”

“This is the Life” Winer

Wine: California Pinot Noir 2012
Type: Red, Dry
Vineyard: Murphy-Goode

Buy local or find it at

Full of black cherry and spice with a hint of vanilla coming through. Serve with grilled cedar plank salmon or a pulled pork sandwich….yum!

The “Timeless” Winer

Wine: Black Opal Barossa Cabernet/Merlot 2000
Type: Red, Dry
Vineyard: Black Opal Winery (Australia)

Buy local or find it at

A rich and deep crimson color that catches the eye and requires a closer look into the light.  Close to the face, the scent of ripe plum and berry fruits fills the nose.  It is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon is well combined with the mulberry and chocolate of Merlot. A longtime favorite of mine, it was excellent with a sharp cheddar and a well-stoked chimera.

The “Hippy” Winer

Wine: Peter Lehmann Portrait Shiraz 2010
Type: Red, Dry
Vineyard: Peter Lehmann Winery (Australia)

Buy local or find it at

A deep red/black color that holds the eye as the light tries to penetrate but merely produces a soft glow. On the nose, there is a rich, mixed bouquet of chocolate and dark fruits. It is definitely a full-bodied wine but the tannins are soft and eases into a long finish. It was excellent with lamb and fried feta.
