Ovum 'Memorista' Riesling 2016 It impressed my wife...
And she's hard to impress, especially on whites. Very nice, we're getting more.

Chateau Saint-Roch 'Kerbuccio' Maury Sec 2016 Empire nailed it!
OK, we got more. VERY nice. Every time we open a bottle, I'm happy. Isn't that what drinking wine is about? Try some!

Guy Saget 'Marie Beauregard' Vouvray 2016 Another hit from the Loire
Sweet, but crisp. A nicely made, balanced wine, well worth the price. Chardonnay lovers beware, try this, and you'll never be the same... we're getting more.

Idlewild 'The Bee White' 2017 A nice white
A well made white blend, it goes well with seafood, is also a sipper. We're getting more.

Tarapaca Carmenere 2015 A great wine at this price point
For $13 a bottle, this may be a five star wine. Do not try it warm. 100 percent carmenere, and VERY nice! We're getting more...

Louis Latour Bourgogne Gamay 2015 WS on target!
Nice light red, good flavor, goes with salmon like a pinot noir. Good value for the money.

Ritual by Veramonte Pinot Noir 2015 A great wine at this price point
Very good pinot at this price point. If it was from Cally or Ore. it would be a bit more...We're getting more!

Clos des Lunes 'Lune Blanche' White 2015 A great wine at this price point
Probably 5 stars at this price point. The rare white bordeaux imported to the U.S. Try it if you want a nicely made white blend. We're getting more...

Tons de Duorum White 2017 A great wine at this price point
Actually not great, but very nice for the money, and a step off the beaten path, if that appeals.

Santa Ema 'Reserve' Merlot 2015 2 and 1/2
We loved the 2013, this not so much. My wife did not like it, I thought it was OK, but just pizza wine. 91 would be VERY generous.

Quinta do Ameal 'Loureiro' 2016 NOT typical vinho verde...
We had vinho verde in Portugal, a light, bland, slightly bubbly sipper. This is quiter a bit more than that. We're getting more, and 4 stars may be a bit stingy at the price.

Mullineux Syrah 2015 Great Grapes
Really sad that this is no longer available. We'd buy a case if we only could..

San Felice Chianti Classico 2015 A fine bottle...
At this price, a bargain bottle. WS got it right. It may get better, but you'll enjoy it even if you don't wait. We're getting more.

Ravines Cellars Dry Riesling 2015 Should age well
Very nice, still young, as WS notes, could improve over the next decade. We bought half a case after the first bottle, will buy more... Could be the best wine we've had from NY.

Buchegger Riesling Tiefenthal 2013 grows on you...
A bit austere at first, but it opens up nicely in the glass. Perhaps we should have decanted it? Very nice with asian food.

Kir-Yianni 'Ramnista' Xinomavro 2013 Good red from Greece?
We had the 2012 tonight, worth buying as a food friendly red in the cabernet franc grouping. Plenty of body and flavor for us, probably one that the california cab folks would describe as rustic...

Carlisle 'Palisades Vineyard' Petite Sirah 2015 Good Petite Sirah is never (sadly) cheap...
Really, really nice! Young, so it will improve over the next few years, but a total pleasure right now. Let it breath.

Cune 'Monopole' 'Classico' Viura 2014 well made wine
Very nice with fish. Not complex, but you'd not expect that. Clean, tasty, and enjoyable. Nice finish.

Santa Ema 'Reserve' Merlot 2013 great value
if you like merlot, this is a GREAT value for the price. Tastes like it should cost much more. We bought a case...

Hardys Whiskers Blake Tawny Port 5 stars
Just the best inexpensive port out there. The fact that it is made down under is unimportant. Can't believe anyone wouldn't like this after a nice meal.'
