Coruce Vineyards and Winery (written Nov 04, 2018)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 3 stars Ambiance: 2 stars
The tasting room is fairly easy to miss in a strip center. We enjoyed every wine that was poured here. Tessa, our tasting room hostess was very knowledgeable. She is studying winemaking. I really liked their Syrahs. They had several viogniers to try and their reserve was just fab. Our son really liked their 2012 Zinfandel.

Reyes Winery (written Nov 04, 2018)
Wine: 3 stars Winery: 3 stars Ambiance: 3 stars
Charming winery grounds with easy access from main highway. They claim to make a lot of different wines here and as such they rotate wines on and off the tasting list each month. On the tasting list during our visit were couple cabernet sauvignons, syrahs, merlots and several blends. A couple Chardonnays also. Didn’t taste a bad wine here but not really any standouts either. The blends were nice. We bought a bottle each of the of the Ryan’s and Robby’s Blends.

Antelope Valley Winery (written Aug 24, 2018)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 3 stars Ambiance: 3 stars
We really enjoyed the wines here. Several verietals had a nice herbaceous finish. Nothing were overly complex but quite enjoyable. Nice price points to make this a go to winery for everyday consumption if one lived close. Finally, we really enjoyed out tasting room hostess, Candace, who was quite knowledgeable and fun. We enjoyed every one of their estate grown wines: Zinfadel, Merlot and Sangioviese. The Zin was not a typical Zin. Much more tart and herbaceous on the finish and cleaner up to that point. The Cabernet Sauvignon was quite elegant. Really liked all the reds.

Purple Toad Winery (written Nov 13, 2017)
Wine: 3 stars Winery: 3 stars Ambiance: 4 stars
Sweet wines were very interesting. Some of the fruit wines were crazy and in a good way if you're wanting sweet wines. The Blackberry Peach Wine would be great over ice cream. Unfortunately for us, we're not that into sweet wines. But if you sweet wines is what you do, then the Toad is for you. The dry reds were very different. To be honest I want to say the dry reds are just plain bad. But perhaps I need to get used to them. They were barely recognizable to me. Something with the terroir, yeast, winemaker preference or something. I don't know. Right from the nose to the finish, there is something very different going on with their reds at least in my range of experiences.
