Alamos, Chardonnay, 2012

Argentina, Chardonnay, 2012

It's been quite some time since we've sampled the inviting and humbling characteristics of Argentinian wine. The wine from the vineyards of one of South America's great regions are ripe with incredibly complex flavor profiles and quality that is rarely matched. Alamos is named for the poplar

Italy, Pinot Grigio, 2013

It's become an interestingly white fall and I can't say I'm terribly disappointed. As a wine lover who typically fancies himself a nice bold red during the blustery months of autumn, I've grown fond of kicking back with a crisp white here and there. There's nothing wrong

Chile, Chardonnay, 2013

While we may not be heading off the beaten path, our taste of Chilean wine this week is a slight bit different than those in previous adventures. Instead of seeking out a bold and invigorating red varietal, we're looking at a Chardonnay. Not a typical

Smoking Loon
California, Pinot Grigio, 2013

A delightfully different style of white grape varietal, the Pinot Grigio is known for splendid fruit flavors and exquisite drinkability. To be sure, this isn't a wine I particularly want to dabble in; however, I've recently been looking to branch out,

California, Chardonnay, 2012


When you find a wine producer you thoroughly enjoy, it's only natural to pick up each and every bottle of theirs you can get your paws on, right? I really hope that's the case, as I've simply fallen

California, Chardonnay, 2013


Once again we are taking a look at an interesting Chardonnay; it's just been that sort of a summer, I suppose. Smoking Loon's "Steelbird" Unoaked Chardonnay comes to us by way of California's famed Napa valley wine country; an area of land so perfect

Italy, Cortese di Gavi, 2013


Italian wine seemingly lives in its own little world, with its own set of rules, and its own agenda. Perhaps unsurprisingly, I've never met an Italian wine I didn't like. We can chalk that up to chance, or we can take it as

Monogamy, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2012

California, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2012


Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa valley is hard to beat — even the bottom shelf varieties are usually very drinkable. Indeed, as one of the world's most renowned wine varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys a level of fame that is both well deserved and well exploited. But we're

California, Chardonnay, 2012


A delightfully simple varietal, the Chardonnay grape originated in the Burgundy region of France, but can now be found virtually in any region where wines are produced. This grape varietal is known for its stunning neutrality and versatility, owing much of its flavor profile to fine oak

France, Mâcon Villages Chardonnay, 2012


France has a rich and romantic history, filled with great art, delectable food, and delicious wine. A country which takes as much pride in their culture and history as they do their many industries, France's various winemakers imbue their craft with a delightful personality, unapologetically

California, Pinot Grigio, 2013


The fertile plains of Sonoma County (more specifically Geyserville and Oakville, California) are home to a great many vineyards, producing a wide variety of incredible fruits. Indeed, Northern California is one of the main hot spots of American wine production, and

Casali di Bibbiano

Italy, Toscana, 2011


Having never been presented with the opportunity to enjoy a Tuscan wine, I was more than a little excited to find a bottle of Casali di Bibbiano's Toscana tucked away in a far corner of my local wine shop. This Italian white wine is
