Wine of the Week: Hay-Maker Sauvignon Blanc

The wine is crisp with crushed gooseberry, white currants, fresh citrus zest, soft white fruit that perfectly balances the fresh acidity, making this a highly drinkable and approachable sauvignon blanc from the finest area for the grape varietal in the New World.

Wine of the Week: Chloe Pinot Noir

Chloe Pinot Noir needs to open a good hour-plus before consumption to let off some of the detectable volatile acidity, but then it softens up and becomes quite classic. It is superbly priced and a great value.

Wine of the Week: Eroica Riesling

Eroica is easily the greatest riesling made in this country, with this, the newest vintage, being a particularly great example. It is a delicious wine that is a miracle with Thai food or spicy Mexican food.

Wine of the Week: Alamos Malbec

Alamos Malbec is a truly interesting wine that, based on its concentration and forceful flavor profile, is an excellent alternative to more traditional cabernets and merlots normally found in the area.
