Wine
Viognier/Chenin Blanc Blend, Pine Ridge, CA, 2021

Tasting Notes:  92 points, James Suckling
Crisp, bright, and vivacious, this wine is an aromatic white blend boasting a bouquet of honeysuckle, orange blossoms, nectarine, white peach, and ginger spice. The entry is both bright and mouth-filling exhibiting refreshing acidity and roundness, opening to flavors of tangerine, lime, and lemon curd, lemongrass, ginger, white peach, and green apple. This delicious wine finishes clean and long with a lingering hint of lime.

Tempranillo, Hazaña Viña Viejas, Rioja, ES, 2017

Tasting Notes:  A dense ruby/purple color is followed by aromas of lead pencil shavings, blackcurrants, spice box, cedar and a touch of vanilla. Deep, medium to full-bodied.
