We’ve Been Stalked! The Wine Stalker Reviews Matchbook

by: Virginia Valdez Sandfer

Starting 2019 out with a bang! We love these glowing reviews by wine blogger, Joey Casco, a.k.a. The Wine Stalker. (p.s. We love his hat & shirt, too!)

January Wine Pick: The Arsonist 2016 Red Blend
“The color of the wine is a gorgeous garnet. Even from a distance you get this floralness of rose petals and orange blossoms coming from the glass. Come in closer and there’s aromas of cassis and dark chocolate … I have yet to meet anybody who didn’t enjoy this when they taste it, and it’s my go-to suggestion for a $20 red blend.” Read the full review – click here.

Tinto Rey 2017 Estate Bottled Verdejo 
“On the nose this is much more floral and far less flinty. There’s aromas of peaches, pears, orange peel, and honeysuckle. It has a medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and an uplifting but restrained acidity. There’s flavors of peaches, pears, and kiwi. Then it finishes with kiwi and a little oak.” Read the full review – click here.

Matchbook 2016 Estate Bottled Petite Sirah 
“The color of the wine is a gorgeous ruby red. There’s aromas of plums, vanilla, black pepper, and bay leaf. On the palate it’s medium to full bodied with a rich mouthfeel that becomes a cloud of lushness when swirled around in the mouth. The tannins are both sweet and grippy, and the acidity is present but takes a seat in the back. There’s flavors of blackberries, red apple, black pepper, and vanilla. Then it finishes juicy with the tannins tightening their grip.” Read the full review – click here.
