Small bottle, big taste!

I really liked this 90 point wine…but I have to drop it a bit. It was too green for me, this bottle had a lot of herbal notes followed up by cherry. Old world fans would love this! The floral notes where just a little off balance from the fruit. Although it was definitely a treat.
Score: 89/100

Paired it with Pita bread chicken pizza with tomato sauce.


Domaine Drouhin Pinot Noir 2004


90 Points – Josh Raynolds – International Wine Cellar

“Deep red with a bright rim. Pungent, spicy and cool on the nose, with fresh raspberry, wild strawberry, mocha and fresh rose scents. Youthful, tangy red berry flavors are elegant and focused, with mineral and floral pastille accents. Nicely silky pinot, finishing on a sweet red berry note, with a hint of fresh bay.

Mahi Sauvignon Blanc 2006


93 Points – Gary Vaynerchuk

“This wine blew me away, I can honestly say this is my new favorite New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. The outrageous complexity of grapefruit and kiwi mixed with the acidity of a $50 Riesling makes this the winner it is!!”
