Raise a glass for Jack's House.

  • Cheers to the Nicklaus' partnership with the Terlato family to produce a delicious, affordable and philanthropic line of California wines. Jack's House Foundation supports children healthcare and education efforts around the world. With 10% of net sales going to charity, each glass of this Chardonnay and Cabernet consumed is doing good. And these are really good value house wines.

Estate sale.

Estancia Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir 2014 vintage photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Estancia is translated from the Spanish word for “estate”. Estancia, owned by Constellation Brands (NYSE: STZ), controls winemaking from experimental vineyard block trials to planting, harvesting, fermenting, and aging the wines. I recently picked these 2014 varietals at Donelson Liquors and was impressed with the current quality for the price. As for Donelson Liquors, their wine selection is fairly limited, but they do offer 10% off wines on Mondays. Cheers!

Starts well, finishes well.

Rodney Strong Sonoma Chardonnay 2014 on Winewaves & More.
  • Rodney Strong Chardonnay 2014 is a finely balanced Chardonnay from Sonoma with nice complexity at a great price. Cheers to Rodney Strong Vineyards and their devotion to Sonoma County - it most definitely comes through in this Chardonnay.

Estate grown Washington bargain.

Gordon Estate Columbia Valley Chardonnay 2014 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • The Gordon brothers started over three decades ago farming and making wine in the Tri-Cities area and they've remained family-owned. They're a true "craft" winery as well as among the most experienced growers in the state. Cheers to this charming and sophisticated Chardonnay that could be mistaken for a much higher priced bottle.

Finding your sister in the wine business.

Truvée Central Coast Red Blend 2013 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • The women behind Truvée are passionate about making wine and connecting with wine lovers around the world. But the real story is how they nearly missed finding each other in life. Separated early on in life, half-sisters Andréa and Robin McBride were living seemingly parallel lives 6,500 miles apart in wine growing regions in New Zealand and California. Their reunion was a turning point that put them on the same path making wine, beginning in 2010. Cheers to finding their wines locally which are excellent for the price.

Groovy Riesling.

Underdog Dry Riesling Mosel Qualitatswein 2014 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Underdog Dry Riesling Mosel Qualitatswein 2014 is very groovy, in fact it reminded me of a nice Gruner Veltliner at first, before unfolding and delivering a fine Mosel Riesling experience. But what really makes this wine groovy is that it supports the FOH (Feed Our Homeless) Nashville Project. In this case, the proceeds go to the homeless pets cared for by East C.A.N. and SAFPAW. The wine even has a local connection. Cheers to this effort!

Riesling's range.

Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling range vintage 2014 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Cheers to Chateau Ste. Michelle for making this tasting so easy, affordable and excellent. Ever since I learned to decipher a German (Riesling) wine label, the range of styles of this grape has made me a fan. A good Riesling is vibrant, even late harvest sweet versions, not to mention highly aromatic. All three of these are true to variety, and together they show the range of Washington state Riesling from dry to sweet.

Bogle California Chardonnay 2014 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Clarksburg Chardonnay is supposed to display apple and pear aromas and flavors. Bogle fermented these expressive grapes in stainless and blended this Clarksburg juice with barrel-fermented Lodi and Monterey Chardonnay that had undergone partial malolactic fermentation. The result is mouthwatering and a best buy.

Refreshing change of grapes:
Clarksburg Viognier.

The White Knight Clarksburg Viognier 2014 photographed ny Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Clarksburg isn't too well known as a wine growing area and doesn't appear on many wine labels but maybe it should. Wines from here offer excellent value. The White Knight Viognier is a peachy, minerally, refreshing change of grapes. Super aromatic, you want to keep your nose in the glass after it's empty.

Bota Box Chardonnay is a-ok.

Bota Box Chardonnay reviewed on Winewaves & More.
  • Maybe we find ourselves with just enough energy left after a long week to tap the Bota Box in the fridge. Too tired even to twist a cap off, let alone use a corkscrew. Bota Box Chardonnay is fresh, crisp, vibrant.
