Ruffino Chianti 2010

Comment on this

    Fine Living Needs Fine Wine   Your editor says:  We enjoyed this wine with a great zuchinni "tagliatelle."  A good Chianti always works with tangy tomato flavors.   The winemaker says: Ruby red.

Medium-bodied, Chianti Ruffino is characterized by a marvelous freshness that makes Chianti Ruffino a very pleasant and easy to drink wine. Persistent fruity sensations feature a long aftertaste.

Belle Glos Meiomi Pinot Noir 2009

Comment on this

  The winemaker says, "The name Meiomi, (pronounced May-oh-mee) was chosen as an expression of its source. The word means "coast" in the language of the native Wappo and Yuki tribes, and our wine draws its profile from the abundant choices presented along California's cool, lengthy Pacific border."   We say:  deep color, dark berries, sweet.  This wine is affordable yet tastes luxurious.   Click here to order Belle Glos Meiomi Pinot Noir 2009 [...]
