Lay of the Land Sauvignon Blanc 2015 Marlborough, New Zealand Sauvignon blanc can be a hard sell for me, as I often find it to have broth-like qualities interfering with the crisp acidity that I crave. No such problem with winemaker Mike Paterson’s Lay of the Land, which came to me through my NakedWines.com order.

Jen Pfeiffer Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 Other Words: Rock it Like a Redhead, the Rebel Victoria, Australia This is a NakedWines.Com production, and unfortunately, it’s currently out of stock. Though I hear there’s a similar wine coming from Pfeiffer soon… Regardless, on Day 1, it’s a well-rounded mouthful of blackberry with a pepper accent. On Day

Jacqueline Bahue Cabernet Franc 2013 Sonoma County, CA The nose gives off an impression of scents. It’s an invitation to explore their potential. And on exploration, this is a beautifully integrated glass of wine. Elegant, a gracious hostess in pearls whose complex inner beauty lies just beneath her skin. My current love affair with cabernet

Pickberry Vineyard Merlot 2013 Sonoma Mountain, CA Plump cherries on a slate board with mild blue cheese and sautéed mushrooms. The cheese deepens as the long finish continues…and continues…and continues. If only cherries and blue cheese were a better combination. I should have ordered brie!

Randall Grahm’s Uncle Louie Vineyard Zinfandel 2013 Contra Costa Country, California My first thought on looking at that label is that Uncle Louie bears a remarkable resemblance to the Monopoly Man. Thought #2 is “Wow, you can really smell that floral and cedar nose the moment the bottle opens.” Remarkably, the nose is not as

Akiyoshi Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Clarksburg, CA David Akiyoshi is one of NakedWines.Com’s go-to winemakers in California. So far, I’ve tried his 2013 Sangiovese Rosé, and it placed firmly in my second-best grouping, the Avocados. That’s a 69/100 on the Quini scale. All that means is I expect a pretty good, though probably not exceptional, wine

Kahlua Midnight

Kahlua Midnight Mexico 35% ABV Kahlua Midnight strikes me as the serious older brother of the regular Kahlua we know and love. It’s a mix of rum and black coffee liqueur, and that appeals to me because I don’t take cream or sugar with my coffee, never mind that it still has sugar in there
