Sonance NV  Pinot Grigio
91 points
Best Buy
Pale straw color. Fresh aromas and flavors of honeysuckle and lemon zest with a satiny, vibrant, fruity light body and a complex, breezy finish with accents of dried apricot and mango, starfruit, sage, and limestone and diesel with fine, fruit tannins and no oak flavor. A snappy and silky Pinot Grigio with complex minerality not unlike a fine German Riesling.

Lubanzi 2015 Red Blend Coastal Region
88 points
Best Buy
Opaque black garnet color. Aromas of dried berries, dry earth, and dried white flowers with a lightly tannic, crisp, fruity full body and an interesting, medium-length tar, dark chocolate, mixed berry pie, and parsley finish with coarse tannins and heavy oak flavor. A sturdy red for the table.

Lubanzi 2016  Chenin Blanc
85 points
Bright yellow straw color. Citrusy aromas and flavors of crisp apple and pear, lemon yogurt, cantaloupe rind, and ginger with a soft, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a swift finish with notes of nougat with fine, fruit tannins. An easy-going and versatile wine.
