Karma Lion NV Vinho Espumante

Lot 18, $18.49


Aaron: This isn’t super complex, but it tastes pretty good.  Honey and melon on the nose, followed by a sweet, syrupy flavor.  There is more honey, plus brown sugar on the palate with some peach, making this super easy drinking.  90 points

Teri: Sweet peach and red apple with an almost ‘sticky’ mouth feel. This sparkling wine is good but on the sweeter side. Not too complex. Fruity. 89 points.

Le Ruse Renard Cotes de Gascogne 2015

Lot 18, $14.99


Aaron: Oaky green apple on the nose.  The flavor is tangy but dissipates quickly.  Lots of lemongrass and weeds with some interesting sunflower but too tart for me.  87 points

Teri: This white wine has a citrus nose with a light and crisp body. I tasted flavors of white peach and Pez (like the candy). Medium body and a short (but flavorful) finish. Slightly watery but easy to drink. 87 points

Aaron: Crisp apple and seawater nose.  Lots of fruity pears and red apple.  Not super harsh and doesn’t remind me of a traditional brut.  Pretty tasty and full.  90 points

Teri: Light smell with flavors of pear and peach on the wine. Balanced bubbled and flavor. I enjoy the crispness of the sparkling wine plus the beautiful flavor. This bottle is not only beautiful but also delicious. Great gift or bring to a festive party!  90 points

Pop Dust Prosecco

Lot 18, $16


Aaron: This is pretty good.  Light, green apple on the nose.  Mild flavor with lots of apricot and pear as well as some saltine crackers.  89 points

Teri: Light nose, but beautiful and sturdy flavors of apple, lemon, walnut and a hint of vanilla. Almost too many bubbles, but that was ok with me. The flavor lingers after you swallow and leaves you wanting more. 91 points

Aaron: I thought this had a really nice pineapple and citrus nose with a lighter flavor of sweet mandarines and honey…lots of honey.  The metallic, steel aftertaste wasn’t my favorite, making this pretty good but not amazing.  89 points.

Teri: This wine puts two things I love together: unoaked chardonnay and Western Australia. This wine carries flavors of red apple, peach, and a slightly metallic finish with honeydew.  Its body rivals that of standard oaked chardonnays but is still crisp and refreshing. Nothing overly stunning but a great easy drinking enjoyable white, plus a humorous name. 89 points
