The Springfield Business Journal's Wine Review heaped praise this week on three Moniker wines from "California's Mendocino County, a place where the grapes are known for producing outstanding wines."
"The Moniker 2012 Mendocino County Pinot Noir is a well-made and enjoyable wine that we, as known unrepentant lovers of pinot noir wines, can happily attest to."
"California cabernet sauvignons can get a bit mundane and repetitious in their flavor and aroma. Many tend to be carbon copies of one another. That's not the case with Moniker 2011 Mendocino County Cabernet Savignon. This wine is anything but dull and boring."
"Moniker 2011 Mendocino County Chardonnay: If you are expecting a massive, austere and brooding continental style chardonnay, forget it; this wine is as California as they come - big, wide open, super fruity and very enjoyable."
Thanks, Springfield Business Journal, for the great Mendocino shout-out!
