We love being loved. Sometimes we sometimes don’t agree with reviews on our wine (you can see our views on wine ratings here) but most of the time professional tasters do appreciate our wines. This time, the props come from Catherine Fallis, MW, and her publication Planet Grape Reviews.
Now Planet Grape reviews is very cool publication that is totally after our own hearts. Not only is it’s motto “Bringing Wine Down to Earth”, which we are totally down for, but it is also America’s first female led wine review. Catherine herself is the world’s fifth female Master of Wine (MW), which is the most challenging wine certification to attain (even more difficult than the Master Sommelier) and basically means she really knows her stuff.
Planet Grape Wine Review delivers short, non-technical reviews for regular people. So, without further ado, check out what she has to say below:
14.3%, 750 ml, $22
Slender, tart and dry with notes of raspberry, cherry, pink rose, cedar and mushroom.
13.2%, 750 ml, $17
Light, subtle, fresh and dry with notes of lime, apricot, peach, cantaloupe, basil and lemongrass.
13.3%, 250 ml, $6.99
Light, crisp and tart with notes of peach, honeydew melon, celery leaf and dill. 250ml can.

“… I’ve watched with dismay as the price of good pinot noir climbs ever higher. It’s a variety that’s so versatile that I could drink it with almost everything – if I could afford to…”
We feel ya on that, Laurie. Love the Pinot, hate the prices.
“The Lucky Rock more than held its own in a blind tasting with wines at three times the price.”
With the Chino Noir Mezcal Wine Cocktail you get fresh and earthy deliciousness.
Once it is combined with some fresh ingredients and topped with the smoothness and richness of the Lucky Rock Pinot Noir, it takes on a new life as your perfect nightcap. If this drink doesn’t make you “howl at the moon”, La Luna style we don’t know what will.
