Wine, Spirits & Other Finds

It’s been a while since I’ve updated this page. I’ve been traveling, getting started on my new Midwest Travel section on , and keeping up with my other blog, Wine And Spirits Travel .   I’ve also been doing a lot of sampling on and off the road. It’s about time I shared some of these great items. * I expect to start updating this column again at least monthly. Wine… My favorite of what I’ve received this summer: 2013 Mercer Yakima Valley Pinot Gris A must try for those like me who really appreciate a good light and white. An easy drinking bubbly which has a hint of strawberry: Montalbera Bollicine Roseus Brut A peachy Moscato-like wine you can take this along anywhere: Naked Wines Wanderlust White For the dry red drinker, who likes that cherry nose: 2009 Reserve Abacela Tempranillo If you like a sparkle in your apple, you’ll love the strong green apple notes in this: Kramer Vineyards 2013 Celebrate Pinot Gris Though
