Sep 16, 2019

This is our second go-round with Balletto this year, following on our review of its heartier wines back in March. Today we look at some lighter fare: three whites, all made with fruit from the Russian River Valley. Thoughts follow. 2018 Balletto Pinot Gris Russian River Valley – Boldly fruit-forward with lemon and sharp tangerine notes, there’s an equally punchy floral character underpinning this wine, giving the experience a substantially perfumed element. Notes of lychee and pineapple brighten up on the otherwise sharp, acidic finish. B+ / $20 2018 Balletto Chardonnay Teresa’s Unoaked Russian River Valley – While slightly doughy, this stainless steel-rested chardonnay pours on plenty of fruit, a guava and gentle lemon character dominating. Notes of coconut and mango hang in for the finish, though a somewhat gummy texture robs the wine of some needed acidity. B+ / $20 2018 Balletto Savuignon Blanc Russian River Valley – A surprisingly creamy sauvignon blanc, this wine wears its fruit on its sleeve. Mango, pineapple, and coconut notes all interplay a bit bluntly, with a squeeze of orange juice over the top. The acidity that sauvignon blanc so badly needs is a bit lacking here, though the finish is reasonably bright. B / $20

Easy to say. Harder to do. It’s so hard NOT to get wrapped up in #allofthethings...but seriously- does it matter if your kid doesn’t eat Organic every meal? Play every sport? Not watch TV? Does it matter that your house isn’t spotless? Laundry is piling up? Or dinner was take out again? No. It doesn’t matter. I had to take a #stepback and re evaluate what is best for me last week. I usually have to do this every 6 months or so (This time I think it was school starting and a new season of routine) and it’s a struggle every time. Fill YOUR cup first so you can be there for your family. WALK AWAY from things that stress you out, because it’s #notworthit. It’s ok to SAY NO and not do everything that is offered to you and your kids. Look at the BIGGER PICTURE once and a while and it will get you through the hard times. #moresurprisedthanyouarethatijoined #takeabreak #youdoyou #momofboys #boymomlife #boymom #takeastepback #mindovermatter #rethink #askforhelp #itsokaynottobeokay #winehelps #friendshekp #supportivehusband #godisgoodallthetime #talkitout #bigpicture #newmonday

Sep 16, 2019

Sunday night fun: scrolling through pages of fonts with my business name. When I started this journey, just under two years ago, I wanted my name to be “Buy Moore”. I wanted flexibility in case I wanted to try a variety of media (photography, crafts...). I’ve since found out that there are many “Buy Moore” company names out there, all selling different things, from comic books to real estate. I’ve always loved “Buy Moore Jewelry”. I need consistency across my social media so I’m looking at rebranding. How do you choose a logo or even a font that’s going to be the identity of your company? #buymoore #tellingyourstorythroughjewelry #buymoorejewelry #rebranding #winehelps

Hola, amigos, como estas! From foggy #munich to #sunny #madrid. Just kidding, there’s a rain shower in Madrid #luckyme. But what’s a little drizzle for a Croatian girl? We were flying over Paris and Bilbao, and it was not a bad sunday despite of a little bumpy flight. But again, bumpy flight - that is also a piece of cake for a Croatian girl :D #winehelps #goingto termatalia19

Sep 15, 2019

California is considered Americans Mediterranean with bright sunshine, ripeness and natural richness at the core of its vineyards. Chardonnay accounts for almost 18% of all the wine made and is the leading variety in the state. From this prized climate, BonAnno Wine Chardonnay arises from white grapes with fruit-driven ripe green apple, pear, and stone fruit with texture. Clean, rich flavors which are balanced with bright acidity, light oak, and minerality. Subtle in flavor and best enjoyed with seafood, especially lobster!🥂 😍 🍇 #californiawines #wineweekend #americanwine #winemagic #winners #winefun #winerys #oncloudnine #winemaker #wineselection #napastrong #wineshopping #winehelps #winelife #wineinstagram #wineday #wineconnection #mowine

Sep 13, 2019

Day Owl is an oddly named but quite approachable wine from O’Neill Vintners, a purveyor of bulk wines as well as its own branded offerings. Targeted at “women who get sh*t done,” Day Owl is made from mystery varietals but offers a fruit-forward experience that’s a mix of grapefruit, lemon, and green apple, with a spray of fresh herbs tossed into the mix. Notes of basil and rosemary linger on the finish, though a not insignificant sweetness remains palpable. Also available in cans. (Reviewed from bottle.)

Sep 12, 2019

🍇The human factor plays a major role in a wine's flavor. The winemaker decides how to interact with producing sweet wine, red wine, white, or wine that is unoaked or barrel-aged, etc. We are proud and thankful at BonAnno Wine to have lead winemaker Jim Milone. A guy who grew up in the vineyards of his grandfather's winery in Mendocino County, California. Who today, crafts, blends, and bottles our wonderful portfolio wines! 🍇 🍷🥂 #winemaker #californiawines #vineyard #napastrong #americanwine #justwine #wineconnection #letsdrinkwine #wineexpert #timeforwine #wineshopping #winehelps #drinkgram #instaglass #wineselection

Here’s a perfectly approachable and crazy cheap sauvignon blanc from Line 39, an operation which produces a half-dozen California varietal bottlings, all priced at $12.99 — and as little as $8.99 if you shop around. (This one’s from Lake County.) Fresh and fruity, this is a grapefruit bomb that’s dusted just so with white sugar, with a finish that hints at lychee in syrup. Uncomplicated — but that’s exactly what I was looking for. A- / $13 / line39wines.com

Sep 11, 2019

Where are your priorities? Mine lay with my family ALWAYS. But as I find my health more and more of a struggle to cope with, I have to FINALLY prioritise myself... for them. I’m not one for expensive shoes or spending money on unnecessary stuff (except vintage and op shopping, I’ll take that one 🙋🏻‍♀️), but i do love to splurge on my kids!! Now, though, I need money for rheumatologist apps and MRI + CT scans and trips to the city (2.5 hrs away) for various other health care stuff. It’s not easy, but priorities where they’re due. I’m going for a haircut and beauty treatment this week, first time in around a year I’d say. I have made a huge commitment to buying locally grown seasonal fruit n veg & locally sourced meats. I cook almost every night & I’m super health conscious. I’ve changed the way i do MANY things in my world just to be healthier and get through this horrible patch I’m dealing with. Sometimes you have to put yourself first, but that doesn’t mean new shoes and diamonds and vacays. It means being the BEST mum you can be, present and involved, even though it hurts and you literally can’t feel your feet. It means being there when you’d rather (and get more benefit from) sleep. And it also means taking the time to have your hair done if you haven’t had it done in a year, even though your 14 year old daughter has had hers done 5 times this year. Priorities. Don’t be selfish, but take some time for yourself when you need it. It’s one of the most important things you can do for your loved ones, and I’m learning that day by day, but it sure ain’t easy 🤷🏻‍♀️🥰 - - - #priorities #winehelps #kids #family #blessed #spoonie #whatsimportant #fibromyalgia #fibrowarrior #cfs #oa #chronicfatigue #chronicfatiguesyndrome #socrap #ebv #lifeswonderful #hardbutwonderful #spoonielife #makingchoices #organiclife #noteasy #worthit #youreworthit #invisibleillness #biglove #lifeswonderful #hard #awesome #chronicillness #spoonievillage #chronic

Let’s talk about…⠀ ⠀ Burchfield White Blend Ancient Lakes WA 2016 – Another vibrant white from the new Burchfield label…and another sensation.⠀ ⠀ About the wine – On the western edge of Washington’s Columbia Basin is a relatively new Ancient Lakes appellation. The 35 lakes that run through the area provide a moderating influence on the climate, making it ideal for the cultivation of (mostly) white wine grapes.⠀ ⠀ This wine is mostly Sauvignon Blanc, with a touch of Chenin Blanc for sweetness, it offers intense aromas of orange peel and just a hint of lemon. The palate is smooth, with lemon cream sensations and an enduring finish. ⠀ ⠀ Perfect pair – Lemon Shrimp Pasta – The vibrant citrus flavours make it an ideal pairing with shellfish. Pan fry the shrimp in butter, garlic, salt, pepper and fresh lemon juice and toss the pasta with a sprinkle of parsley.⠀ ⠀ If you'd like to purchase this wine, or learn how to get it for FREE, leave me a comment below or send me a message.⠀ ⠀ Best – Now – End 2020⠀ How – 8-11 degrees Celsius⠀ Grapes – Sauvignon Blanc⠀ Origin – Ancient Lakes – Washington State⠀ Smells like – Orange peel, lemon zest, boxwood⠀ Alcohol by volume – 13.0%⠀ *⠀ #sauvignonblanc #ancientlakes #washingtonstate #washingtonwines #winesofwashington#wedowine #wine #whitewine #foodandwine #winequotes #foodandwinepairing #wineobsessed #winepeople #winesofinstagram #wineofinstagram #wineplease #winetime #winetherapy #winetasting #winetaste #winetasting #winelover #winestagram #winehelps #wino #wineoclock #drinkthewine #allthewine #worldwinewatchers

Sep 9, 2019

Pale as a glass of water with a squeeze of lemon, this Napa sauvignon blanc is sunny and bright, a departure from the usual styles of this wine — either overly tropical or heavily grassy and full of ammonia character. What Rutherford Ranch offers instead is a crisp, lemony wine that’s lightly herbal, exhibiting solid mineral notes, and finishes as crisp and clean as a breath of floral-scented mountain air. At 12 bucks a bottle (vs. an MSRP of $23), it’s a highly approachable steal. A- / $12 / rutherfordranch.com

Sep 8, 2019

First, love the name. This blend of 47% merlot, 30% cabernet sauvignon, 14% cabernet franc, and 9% petit verdot from Washington-based Mark Ryan is surprisingly dense, a meaty wine that showcases peppery beef jerky, dried blackberry, and some dried spices — cloves, marjoram, and rosemary. The finish doubles down on that BBQ beef note, with smoky burnt end and fresh leather — and notes of licorice just a hint of fresh-squeezed blackberry juice. With time in glass, a dark chocolate note emerges. Intriguing on its own, but best when paired with a bold — bold — meal. B+ / $32 / markryanwinery.com

Sep 7, 2019

Provenance is a moderately high-end operation in Rutherford in Napa Valley with a focus on big reds. Today we look at a quartet of new releases, all from the 2016 vintage in current release. 2016 Provenance Chardonnay Carneros – Chewy chardonnay, oaky and chewy on the palate, but cut just so with notes of lemon and grapefruit. Buttery vanilla notes endure well into the finish, however, leaving a somewhat cloying aftertaste that’s hard to shake. B / $15 2016 Provenance Merlot Napa Valley – Tight at first, this merlot slowly opens up to reveal layers of character. Chocolate comes first, then black cherry, then a mint component. While this wine could well be mistaken for cabernet (or a meritage), there’s a softness on the palate that belies its merlotness, particularly when you reach the silky, minimally tannic finish and its gentle floral influence. B+ / $32 2016 Provenance Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford – Approachable cabernet, distinctly on the softer side — though that’s not meant as an insult. Fresh blueberries and raspberries outpace a light balsamic character, which add a certain austerity to the otherwise straightforward wine, its finishing chocolate and cassis notes tempered by a surprising acidity. B+ / $35 2016 Provenance Deadeye Red Blend Napa Valley – A red blend of 76% cabernet sauvignon, 12% petit sirah, 5% merlot, 5% petit verdot, and 2% malbec. Notes of chocolate and hazelnuts inform a silky palate of dense cassis and blueberry, with well-integrated tannins enduring into the lasting finish. Violet floral notes are evident, but only after a bit of air time. It’s a bold and aggressive wine, but one that deftly threads the needle, preventing it from ever becoming overwrought.

Sep 6, 2019

Let’s talk about…⠀ *⠀ Wild Brush Chardonnay Central Coast, California 2015 – Warm island breezes, cool Pacific air, the perfect climate for outstanding Chardonnay.⠀ *⠀ About the wine – California’s Central Coast stretches from Monterey in the north down to Santa Barbara and is home to many of the state’s most popular wine grapes. In fact, wine growing in this region dates back to the early 1800s and the wine became popular worldwide in the 1970s.⠀ *⠀ The small harvest of 2015 allowed our wine makes to highlight the brightness of the fruit. This excellent, true-to-type example of the Chardonnay varietal is a classic straw colour, with aromas of golden apples and citrus. Bright fruit flavours are complemented by a round lush mouthfeel highlighted by notes of lemon and melon.⠀ *⠀ Perfect pair – Herb grilled salmon – Make a mix of lemon juice, parsley, coriander (cilantro), olive oil and salt and pepper, rub it onto the salmon fillets and grill. The lemon notes will match the similar flavours in this wine.⠀ *⠀ Best – Now – End 2020⠀ How – 8-11 degrees⠀ Grapes – 100% Chardonnay⠀ Origin – Monterey County, California⠀ Smells like – Golden apples, citrus⠀ Alcohol by volume – 13%⠀ ⠀ #chardonnay #montereycounty #caliwines #californiawine #wedowine #wine #whitewine #foodandwine #foodandwinepairing #wineobsessed #winepeople #winesofinstagram #wineofinstagram #wineplease #winetime #winetherapy #winetasting #winetaste #winetasting #winelover #winestagram #winehelps #wino #wineoclock #drinkthewine #allthewine #worldwinewatchers

Tussock Jumper is a wine brand that sources its broad portfolio from eleven different countries. A hallmark of the brand is that all of the wines are bottled where the wine is made. Additionally, Tussock Jumper strives to provide quality wines from a range of grapes and styles at an affordable price, typically around $12. After trying a number of their wines, we were impressed.
