Excited to try the 2013 @Bklynoenology Social Club White blend. It's bottling this week! Awesome label and can expect the wine to be just as snazzy. @brooklyn_oenology #wine #bklyn #brooklyn #sommelier #patiopounder #nywine

A classic from Idaho. 2011 @SawtoothWinery Snake River Valley Syrah. Floral aromas of violets followed by blueberry, blackberry and savory bacon and earth notes plus herby spice on the end. Soft tannins with a silky texture. #wine #syrah #idaho #sommelier #sawtooth #delectable #wine
