Wine of the Week - Latah Creek's Huckleberry D'Latah


This blend of white wine and huckleberry is not what I was expecting at all.

More often than not, sweet wines are overdone - gaggingly sweet or syrupy. This is not. The sweetness is light and subtle, confident and restrained.

Perfect for a mellow summer afternoon. Try it chilled.

Wine of the Week - Carivintas 2011 Jordan Rosé

A blend of 80% tempranillo, 12% syrah and 8% malbec.

This is a confidently mild rosé with tart flavors that quickly give way to gentle floral notes and a white grape finish. Serve chilled on warm, sunny day.

Wine of the Week - Carivintas "Gregory Doggles" 2010 Sauvignon Blanc

Smelling like juicy white grapes, this wine actually turns against you. It's very dry and bitter, tannic, very much like chewing on a grape stem. Not a total loss - I still drank it. Make of that what you will.
