Solid Ground Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 (Sean’s Take)

At a Glance
Overall raspberry, black cheery, ripe blueberries, rhubarb pie
Notes GOOD DEAL ALERT!!! Loads of black cherry and overflowing with blueberry. Silky, aromatic, deep garnet in color. This is a steal of a deal under $20. We bought a few for future enjoyment.

Chateau De Quincay Sauvignon Selection Tradition 2006

Ignore the big fancy French name. What we got here folks is Sauvingnon Blanc. What is special about this wine is it comes from a part of France that is known for making outstanding wines (Loire region). It’s the next door neighbor of where the really expensive stuff comes from. This wine is zesty and has lots of character for what we sometimes think of as a boring white grape. Very crisp, very clean. Total bargain.
Tip: March 1, 2008 Vintages Release – hurry! Chill well.
