Named for the historic and beautiful section of the California coast that inspired John Steinbeck’s timeless writing, 2015 Cannery Row Cellars Chardonnay Cannery Row is a California classic that melds tradition and beauty with the state’s celebrated spirit of innovation. This refreshing white balances apple, nectarine, and juicy melon flavors with toasty hints of vanilla and oak, resulting in a fresh wine with a surprising complexity.
I had the opportunity to try this new tequila that will be out later this month. Wow, I have tasted many tequila brands but this tequila was so smooth I ended up drinking most of the bottle. This is an ultra premium silver tequila that is very drinkable and hang-over free, no impurities and made from 100% Agave. They said they will be out with a reposado and añejo soon as both are in barrels right now.

Summer Water Rosé is a dry rosé that reflects the pink-tinted dream world of many.
The wine is perfectly crisp lighthearted, and destined for a good time.
Drink chilled with the ones you love, is what they say on the back label.
Summer Water is more than the rosé of the season, it’s a state
of mind – every drop full of pink-tinted possibility. This dry
rosé reflects the pale pink dream world of our partners, Yes
Way Rosé. It’s perfectly crisp, lighthearted and destined for
a good time. The grapes for this Central Coast Grenache and
Syrah blend were sourced primarily from cool climate areas
like Monterey and Santa Barbara County, and were picked at
21-23 brix for a high natural acidity that makes the wine ideal
for summer drinking. To ensure as little extraction from the skins
as possible, we used the direct press method, retaining the
delicate fruit aromas and pale color rosé is known for. The final
blend is a composition of many small fermentations, each treated
individually with care; the result is a lean and refreshing rosé with
notes of strawberry, pink grapefruit and white peach.
Sexy Mermaid Rosé or Rabble Tooth & Nail Rosé Wine is going to be super popular as the label is nothing but sexy, you want the label framed in your study or a tattoo sleeve depending on your age. Either way you will enjoy this rosé as it is big, round and fruit driven. Not so much that it screams California, if you blind taste this rosé you may say it is from France. Made from Estrella-clone Syrah from the Mossfire Ranch, a scenic 320 acre property on the eastern side of Paso Robles, CA. Paso Robles is known for superior fruit, and amazing scenery. This is going to be an amazing summer, wine- stock up!
Zinzilla 2013 Review A Monstrous California Zinfandel
By the light of the full moon, Zinzilla erupts from deep within the zinfandel vineyards of California. A monster vine zinfandel producing intense, powerful fruit that devastates other varietals and catapults zinfandel to the forefront of California wines. Full bodied, zinzilla expresses dense layers of raspberries, chocolate, pepper and spice.
Produced and Bottled by McNab Ridge Winery, Ukiah, California.
Fred’s Red Mendocino County Red Wine, bottled by McNab Ridge Winery Ukiah, California.
The Fred’s Red label named after the original McNab dog, Fred, and like Fred is a blend of many things. In this case, a base blend of Syrah and Zinfandel but with a large number of little known Portuguese varietals thrown in. It’s fresh, clean, soft, and an infinitely gulpable and enjoyable wine to have with anything off the grill.
On The Back Label
My name is Fred, a McNab Shepherd- a working dog established in Mendocino County over 100 years abo by my Scottish ancestors. Back then, we herded sheep. Today, the McNabs on this ranch round up grapes. A sheep dog herding grapes, you say? You may think I’m barking up the wrong vine here, but grapes, patrolling the vineyard, trying to remember where I buried that bone. I’m very particular about flavor and choose only select vines under which to bury my best bones. Better flavor, better aging. You’re sure to like Fred’s Red and so will your canine-loving friends. Cheers!
