    Home Wine Regions German Wine Salwey Pinot Gris – Simply Fabulous by Tim Lemke - Oct 19, 2014 The longer I run this website, the more I find that the wines that interest me the most are the ones nobody reads about.

  • Four Vines Biker Zinfandel – Aggressively Awesome!

    … on the nose too and that’s my only gripe. ��This wine continues the bold and exciting theme on the palate, where spice-laden, cherry, plum and blackberry flavors are harmonious yet very concentrated. ��At the same time, it’s not overly sweet (like some zinfandel) and has some earthy, tea-like flavors complementing and balancing the fruit…
