yalumba obv
Yalumba
Old Bush Vine
Grenache
2013
$16.99

92 Points – James Suckling
92 Points – Wilfred Wong

James Suckling – “This is a sexy grenache with lots of dried-strawberry, orange-peel and floral character. Full body with fine tannins and a fresh finish. I like the tannin tension to this. Needs a year or two to soften.”

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com – “Sometimes I just want my red wine to explode in my mouth, this one does. The 2013 Yalumba Bush Vine Grenache is sooooh good. Plenty of raspberries and textures that all wine lovers would invite onto their palates. I like this wine with roast chicken with a raspberry/white wine reduction sauce. Perfect for current enjoyment.”

90 Points – Wine Spectator

King Estate
Pinot Gris
Oregon
2013
$15.77

90 Points – Wine Enthusiast

Wine Enthusiast – “A double bonus here – a price drop and what is certainly the best vintage yet for this widely available Pinot Gris. Outstanding depth of flavor focuses on apple, pear and melon fruits. There’s an appealing streak of vanilla custard, with a lush mouthfeel and plenty of detail right on through the generous finish.”
