Mediterranean Cellars – “Diamonds, Wine and Tradition; What More Can You Ask For!”

  “The wine doesn’t start in the barrel; it starts in the vineyard.” — Louis Papadopoulos (Southern Living, October 2006) This quote describes perfectly the experience my husband and I had at Mediterranean Cellars.

Stay Tuned!”

“This is Good Sh..!” – Decoy 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon

Does Decoy 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon measure up to our first experience? Hmmm, I hope so. I’m watching the wine flow through the aerator and I find myself asking, “What is this grape juice?”  Decoy’s is thin-watery with deep plum coloring. The husband has already taken a sip and immediately Decoy receives multiples nods of approval, which wasContinue reading ““This is Good Sh..!” – Decoy 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon”
