Wines of the Month - March 2016

Wednesday, April 6, 2016 2 comments

This past month I tasted strong sets of new releases from Waters WinerySaviah CellarsFidelitas, and Mark Ryan. I've listed a few highlights below but there is plenty more top quality wines in each of those lineups. Of particular note in terms of Waters, the 2012 Interlude (not listed below) at $28 continues to be one of the best bang for the buck wines in the state.
