“Hops ‘r Better” Winer

Wine: 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon
Type: Red
Vineyard: Jordan

Buy local 

“A Dull-bright appearance, with full aromas. A full-bodied red. The finish is layered. An overall good cabernet sauvignon from the USA.

Okay, Okay – I did rate the taste a 60 in Quini which is REALLY low… but the reason I’m sending it out is because I tasted it from a Magnum; when tasting from a regular bottle (750 ml) it was way better so I figured I’d let you guys decide for yourselves!”

“This is the Life” Winer

Wine: Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Type: Red, Dry
Vineyard: Layer Cake

Buy local or find it at

This wine jumps from the glass with aromas of ripe Bing cherries and blackberries plus cedar and dark, rich layers of Maduro tobacco. Deep flavors of spice infused plums, toasty oak, and espresso fill the mouth, with a rich, creamy layered texture, and powerful structure. Flavors of chocolate and black currant continue through the long, lingering finish.

The “Timeless” Winer

Wine: Glen Carlou Grand Classique 2010
Type: Red, Dry
Vineyard: Glen Carlou Winery, South Africa

Buy local or find it at

A classic Bordeaux blend.  Hints of clove, black currants and sandalwood (of all things).  Not harsh and velvet smooth on the tongue.

The “Hippy” Winer

Wine: Valpolicella DOC 2013
Type: Red, Dry
Vineyard: Allegrini Winery, Italy

Buy local or find it at

Allegrini family’s five hundred year winemaking legacy has produced a traditional blend of grapes (65% Corvina, 30% Rondinella and 5% Molinara) harvested from the  estate vineyards. A ruby red that is bright and fruity on the nose, with aromas of cherries, plums and a hint of violets. Not too complex; medium bodied with a  balance between the fruit, acidity and tannins.
