Merlot - Cabernet Sauvignon - Chenin Blanc



I’ve recently enjoyed three wines that reminded me of warm spring days on the back deck with good friends, sipping good wine.

Olalla Winery produced a 2014 Merlot (Kilted Scotsman – Conner Lee Merlot) – this deep rich inky wine is not like any merlot you have ever experienced.   Each sip is lush, full of flavor and complexity. 

I was recently introduced to Caymus Vineyards out of Napa Valley.  Their 2014 and 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is so amazing.  Words fail to describe this deep dark wine.  It is so full of fruit and very smooth on the finish.

Because of Denise’s recent research into
Biodynamic wines, I tried an organic 100% French Chenin Blanc varietal from the Anjou, Loire Valley region.  It is full of fruit flavor but low in sugar.  I was able to enjoy several glasses with no side effects.

There are so many wonderful wines out there today and I look forward to tasting and sharing them with all of you.

Cheers,

LaDonna
