It’s been too long since my last post! The good news is that since then, I have discovered many new wines that I would recommend and will be sharing on a regular basis with you.  Most of my recommendations are readily available at local liquor and grocery stores, and are also budget-friendly. Without further ado-while the list of new wines I have fallen in love with is a long one-here are just a few of my favorites!

Cline Cashmere


A blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mouvedre and Petite Syrah. (GSM blend plus the addition of Petite Syrah) In the wine world, GSM is typical blend from the Rhone region in southern France that is Grenache, Syrah, and Mouvedre. Plush fruit flavors married with spice and full body, cherry plum and big fruit flavor. A very versatile red that pairs well with many foods, from salmon to roast duck or pork. A crowd pleasing red to keep on hand.

Cline Cellars  consistently high performer in my opinion and offers the most bang for your buck and Cline Cashmere is no exception.  Retails for under $15.  A portion of the proceeds of this wine benefit Living Beyond Breast Cancer charity.

Liberty School Cabernet


This is just a great cabernet.  With black cherry, plum, spice and firm tannins.  Grapes from Paso Robles AVA. A great full-bodied everyday Cabernet! Retails for under $15.

Gazela Vinho Verde


With the warmer weather approaching a refreshing white to add to the must drink wine list is Gazela Vinho Verde. This wine hails from the Vinho Verde region in the northwest Portugal. It’s bright crisp citrus flavor works well lighter fare such as salad or fish tacos.  Slightly spritzy and relatively low in alcohol perfect for refreshment in the warmer months! an excellent value at under $7!!
