Gruet 'Methode Champenoise' Brut Blanc de Noirs

Classification: Sparkling (White); Body: Light;

This was a fun little sparkling wine out of New Mexico that I shared with friends! The bubbles were crisp as was the taste! A nice one to start off with for a tasting or to pair with light tapas!

Classification: Red; Smell: Fruity; Taste: Spicy; Body: Medium-Full; Finish: Spicy;

This was my first experience with a Greek red and it was quite a delight. Our waiter mentioned this one had a hint of chocolate to it and I was sold. I didn't pick up the chocolate notes as much as I ... Read more

Citrus with hints of apple filled my senses with this one, along with a touch of nutmeg. I was intentially looking for the nutmeg... I chose this as my dinner wine with an Almond Encrusted Tilapia and... Read more
