Quick Sip: Chateau Rollan De By Cru Bourgeois Medoc 2010 Bordeaux

 photo logo.png


Hello Friends,

Today’s Quick Sip is the 2010 Chateau Rollan De By Cru Bourgeois from the Medoc region of Bordeaux, France. Bordeaux is arguably the world’s most famous wine region -- known particularly for high-quality Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot-based wines. One of the biggest misconceptions about Bordeaux wines is that they are all on the expensive side. However, outside of the region’s top-tier and more pricey classified growths, you can find a significant number of value-priced, good-quality wines that are enjoyable upon release and capable of improving with age. This bottle is a very good example of drinking well without breaking the piggy bank. It is reasonably priced, especially at the $18.99 Cork Exclusive price (with free shipping on any order), and is a wonderful wine to share with friends at the dinner table. For further information and where you can find it, please see my tasting notes below.

Chateau Rollan De By Cru Bourgeois Medoc 2010 Bordeaux

Review: Chateau Rollan De By Cru Bourgeois Medoc 2010 Bordeaux (SRP $28): Composed of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Petit Verdot, this deeply colored wine offers a fragrant, appealing nose of sweet plum, black cherry, and anise intermixed with fresh coffee grounds, rose petals, and underlying notes of spicy cedar. On the palate, the wine is nicely textured with a pleasant lift of acidity. The flavors are deep, fresh, and dark berried, with a notable touch of grippiness, leading to a medium-long, mineral-tinged finish. Overall, an attractive, reasonably-priced Bordeaux that is well-suited for the dinner table. I enjoyed it on its own and with pepper-crusted pork tenderloin. Other food options to consider are lamb, venison, and fillet of beef. I recommend grabbing a couple of bottles for now and later – as this one should develop nicely over the next few years. Region: Medoc, Bordeaux, France. (Other info: 14% cork enclosure). 90 Points.

Quick Sip: Borra Vineyards 2013 Artist Series Kerner-Based blend


Hello Friends,

Today’s Quick Sip is Borra Vineyards' 2013 Artist Series Kerner-Based blend. Borra Vineyards was founded by Steve Borra in 1975 and is Lodi’s first bonded boutique winery. Winemaking duties are handled by Markus Niggli who is a native of Switzerland. Markus does an exceptional job highlighting Lodi's brighter and lighter side in the bottle while still maintaining good levels of ripe fruit flavors. The fruit for this blend was sourced from Mokelumne Glen Vineyards and grown along the banks of the cooling Mokelumne River. This small, family-owned Lodi vineyard specializes in German and Austrian grape varieties. My introduction to lesser-known German grapes, Kerner and Bacchus, which make up this blend along with the ever-popular Riesling variety, was through Borra Vineyards. To date, the Lodi appellation is the sole source of Kerner and Bacchus in California.

Markus employs a non-interventionist approach to winemaking and is crafting some of the most interesting and table-friendly wines I have had from the area. In addition to this blend, I recommend trying Borra’s Intuition Field Blend White -- a blend composed of 60% Kerner, 20% Riesling, and 20% Gewürztraminer. It is a personal favorite of mine from this producer’s portfolio. For further information and where you can find these wines, please see my tasting notes below.

Borra Vineyards 2013 Artist Series Kerner-Based blend

Review: Borra Vineyards Artist Series 2013 Kerner Blend (SRP 18.99): This is a light and refreshing blend of 50% Kerner, 25% Riesling, and 25% Bacchus. The wine delivers aromas and flavors of grapefruit, green apple, and lime with a lively backdrop of bright acidity that carries though the crisp, mineral-tinged finish. This is a nice wine to pair with seafood (especially shellfish), grilled chicken salads, or before-dinner appetizers. It is also perfect for everyday enjoyment on its own. Only 42 cases of this wine were produced. Region: Lodi, California. (Other info: ABV 13.5%, 100% stainless, native fermentation, screw cap enclosure.) 89 Points. Click here to find this wine.

Recent Sips: Ferrari, Matello Wines, and Steven Kent Winery


Hello Friends,

Just about every day, as wine o'clock approaches, you can find me uncorking or unscrewing a new wine adventure. Being a wine enthusiast, a wine blogger, and someone who appreciates and enjoys the liquid expression of a place, a person’s vision, and Mother Nature’s influence -- I find wine to be one of the most intriguing beverages out there. For me, it is an area of interest where there is always something new to taste and learn. The wines selected for this post, a sparkler and two Chardonnay examples, are all great with food, yet quite enjoyable on their own. For further information and where you can find these wines, please see my tasting notes below.

Bubbly just isn’t for the holidays or special occasions. Enjoy a bottle or two anytime! 

Review: Ferrari Brut Rosé NV (SRP $35): This blend of 60% Pinot Nero (aka Pinot Noir) and 40% Chardonnay offers a pleasing mélange of bright red berry fruit, rose petal, subtle dough, and lively citrus flavors. It is refreshingly dry with a foamy texture, ending in a crisp, slightly yeasty finish. I enjoyed this delightful sparkler with brunch fare; but, it’s versatile and perfect for any occasion – and just about any dish. Don't wait for the holidays or a special occasion to open a bottle of bubbly -- these food-friendly wines should be enjoyed any time of year! Region: Veneto, Italy. (Other info: ABV 12.5%, traditional method, cork enclosure). 88 Points. Click here to find this wine.

Ferrari Brut Rosé NV

Review: Matello Durant Vineyard 2012 Chardonnay (SRP $29): This is an appealing wine that shows a fine sense of restraint with mature tree fruit and pithy citrus flavors followed by nuances of ripe yellow fleshed fruit and a whisper of graham-cracker crust. The palate is lean yet attractively textured, with a rich underlining minerality that’s heightened by a bright spine of acid, ending with a pleasing, medium-long refreshing finish. This wine is a pleasure to drink and a wonderful food wine. If you’re a member of the [dreaded] “Anything But Chardonnay” (ABC) club, this delicious bottle is your ticket out! Approximately 145 cases of this wine were produced. Region: Willamette Valley, Oregon. (Other info:  ABV 13.5%, dry farmed, 20 year old vines, matured 13 months in French oak, 30% new, cork enclosure). 90 Points. Click here to find this wine.

Matello Durant Vineyard 2012 Chardonnay

Review: Steven Kent Winery 2012 Merrillie Chardonnay (SRP $34): “Merrillie” is named for proprietor and vintner Steven Kent’s paternal grandmother. Until recently, it was one of the only white wines the winery produced. This flavorful and mouth-coating Chardonnay combines richness and spicy/sweet oak tones with freshness and brightness – showing a bit more of the former than latter however. It is long and harmonious in the mouth, with flavors of spiced pear, ripe apple, and citrus blossom. The wine’s creamy texture is balanced with up-lifting [citrusy] acidity, ending in a full, lengthy finish. I enjoyed this wine both on its own and with smoked salmon. The wine’s richness works well with fatty fishes, lobster, and poultry. Approximately 504 cases of this wine were produced. Region: Livermore Valley, California. (Other info: ABV 14.7%, eight months American / French oak barrels – 60% new 40% second use, sur lie eight months, natural cork enclosure). 89 Points. Click here to find this wine.

Quick Sip: Teldeschi 2006 Estate Reserve Terraluna


Hello Friends,

Today’s Quick Sip is the F. Teldeschi Winery 2006 Estate Reserve Terraluna red blend. F. Teldeschi is a family-owned and operated vineyard and winery in Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley appellation. The family has 70 acres under vine planted to Zinfandel, which the area is well-known for, along with Petite Sirah, Carignane, some Cabernet, a little Gamay, Malvasia, Cinsault, and more. In 1929, at age 14, Frank Teldeschi left Italy to work with his family in California vineyards. He and his wife Caterina later founded F. Teldeschi which started out as a vineyard and grew into a winery. Their beautiful picture graces the front label of the bottle. Today, three-quarters of the vines producing juice – namely Zinfandel – were planted by Frank and some are nearly ninety years old. Until 1991, the family sold all of their fruit to area producers. Now, their sons Dan (vintner) and John (grape grower) run the business; selling a large percentage of fruit to nearby wineries and producing approximately 1,000 cases of estate wine annually under the Teldeschi label. The 2006 Terraluna, which is the most recent release, is built for longevity and is drinking beautifully right now. It is an excellent bottle of wine to share with friends and family over dinner. For further information and where you can find this delicious blend, please see my tasting notes below.

 Teldeschi 2006 Estate Reserve Terraluna
Review: Teldeschi 2006 Estate Reserve Terraluna (SRP $60): This is an appealing and refined blend of 40% Carignane, 36% Valdiguié, and 24% Petite Sirah from Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley. The wine offers an inviting nose with purple stone fruit flavors that are nicely interwoven with bright fruit-forward waves of cranberry, raspberry, and spicy undertones. This wine is elegant and at the same time gripping, showing both freshness and purity with exceptional textural qualities and vibrant acidity from start to finish. Delightful now, this purely delicious blend is capable of developing further complexities with proper cellaring. I highly recommend giving it a try. This is the third vintage of the Terraluna blend and approximately 96 cases were produced. Region: Dry Creek Valley, California. (Other info: ABV 13.9%, fermented in stainless, aged in neutral oak barrels for 18 months, cork enclosure.) 91 Points. Click here to find this wine.

I would like to thank Dan Teldeschi and McCue Communications for their time and invitation to the ‘Dry Creek Red Blends’ virtual tasting.

Quick Sip: Westrey Willamette Valley 2012 Reserve Chardonnay


Hello Friends,

Today’s Quick Sip is the Westrey Reserve 2012 Chardonnay from Willamette Valley, Oregon. Amy Wesselman, proprietor and co-winemaker of Westrey Wine Company, was recently featured on Protocol Wine Studio’s weekly (every Tuesday at 9PM EST) #winestudio Twitter chat. The show, or ‘twittersation’ as I call it, focused on Willamette Valley Chardonnays for the entire month of November. And as a willing, Twitter-savvy participant, I had a chance to chat with Amy and others and taste her 2012 Reserve Chardonnay.

Amy and her husband, David Autrey, founded Westrey Wine Company in 1993. They are a small farm winery producing approximately 5K cases annually from their Oracle Vineyard and other nearby sites. Their specialty is Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Chardonnay – all grape varieties indigenous to Burgundy, France, that do extremely well in the Willamette Valley. Speaking of which, it was the couple’s year-long internship in Burgundy that sealed their fate in the wine industry. Upon returning to Oregon, Amy and David took a one-small-step-at-a-time business approach. They purchased a neglected vineyard in the Dundee Hills and focused on growing and crafting small lots of wine – all while working at several other local wineries during the day. For Amy, this included a five year stint at Eyrie Vineyards -- Willamette Valley's founding winery. Today, Westrey Wine Company is a thriving winery and the vineyard Amy and David revived /replanted is LIVE (Low Input Viticulture & Enology) certified and producing quality fruit. The Chardonnay tasted for this segment is deliciously balanced and a complement to a wide variety of foods and occasions. I highly recommend giving it a swirl, sniff, and sip! For further information and where you can find it, please see my tasting notes below.

Westrey Willamette Valley 2012 Reserve Chardonnay
Review: Westrey Willamette Valley 2012 Reserve Chardonnay (SRP $32): Medium straw in color, this beautifully crafted Chardonnay opens with inviting notes of fresh tree fruit, citrus blossom, honeysuckle, a hint of allspice, and a pleasing trail of minerality. It is lean in the mouth but attractively textured, with fresh fruit flavors that marry with subtle oak nuances giving way to a bright, mineral-tinged finish. Overall, this is a delightful Chardonnay that emphasizes purity and balance. It is easily enjoyed on its own or with food and paired wonderfully with my baked tilapia dinner. Approximately 142 cases of this wine and 4 magnums were produced. Region: Willamette Valley, Oregon. (Other info: ABV 13.5%, 35 yr old Draper vines, six barrel lot included one new and two one-year old barrels, cork enclosure) 90 Points. Click here to find this wine.

Quick Sip: Riaza Wines Hunter’s Oak Vineyard 2012 Tempranillo


Hello Friends,

 Today’s Quick Sip is Riaza Wines’ Hunter’s Oak Vineyard 2012 Tempranillo from the Clement Hills sub-appellation in southeastern Lodi. Riaza Wines is owned and operated by husband-wife duo, Erin and Rick Taylor. The winery is named after a small town [Riaza] the couple visited that is approximately 27 miles north of Madrid, Spain. Turning a ‘dinner table’ idea into reality, Erin and Rick launched Riaza Wines in 2008 with a focus on crafting small lots of Spanish-inspired wines from distinctive sites in Lodi, Clarksburg and the Sierra Foothills. In addition to this vintage, I have enjoyed the 2011, and both are pleasing wines reflective of the quality of fruit coming from Hunter’s Oak vineyard and Rick’s work in the cellar. This wine drinks well on its own, but is also a very nice bottle to enjoy with family and friends at the dinner table. I enjoyed a glass with a smoked brisket sandwich, pit-smoked beans, and a side of coleslaw. For further information and where you can find this delicious Lodi Tempranillo, please see my tasting notes below. If you’re in or near Lodi, check out Riaza Wines’ downtown tasting room.

Riaza Wines Hunter’s Oak Vineyard 2012 Tempranillo

Review: Riaza Wines Hunter’s Oak Vineyard 2012 Tempranillo (SRP $26): This is a charming and supple medium-to-full bodied wine that opens with inviting scents of dried cherries, cranberry, warm spice, and a whiff of cigar box.

Overall, this is a well-balanced wine with lots of appeal that is easy to enjoy on its own or with food. The producer’s pairing suggestions, which all sound wonderful, includes gilled tri-tip, lamb shoulder or smoked brisket. Approximately 97 cases of this wine were produced. Region: Lodi, California.
