Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with a slightly herbal, earthy bouquet and just enough fruit richness to support the herbal core. The cherry flavors are lovely, with chocolaty backsides and suggestions of dried plum and cherry. This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Carmenère is a drinkable, approachable little red with bright aromas of cherry, blueberry, blackberry and spice. Bright acidity gives it focus and complexity, and the racy finish lasts for a long time. Full-bodied and rich, this is full of ripe apple and spice flavors. It has a mineral edge, a taut acidity and a steely edge that adds an appealing tang. It`s a ready-to-drink wine. This cool-climate Pinot Gris is balanced and medium bodied, with bright flavors of fresh grapefruit, gooseberry and citrus.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers. It`s dry, brisk in acidity and savory, with fully oaked, modern blackberry, cherry pie, licorice and smoky oak flavors. Give it a good chill in a decanter to let those tannins soften. Blackberry, currant, herb and cedar flavors abound in this dry, tannic Cabernet Sauvignon. It shows Napa Valley class, and has the structure to age through 2009, although it is somewhat simple. This country-style Zin is very particular to the variety, with stark, spicy, acid-driven flavors of dried berries and butter. There`s a certain unripeness that suggests some botrytis, and that makes it hard to love over the short term. Suck this big, ripe, juicy wild boar, from the Mouton branch of the Zephyr vineyard in Dry Creek Valley.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as advertised in terms of ripe, tropical flavors of pear and apricot. It`s creamy in texture with good acidity and even some tannins that frame a good length of mineral-infused fruit. This is an example of a lighter, slightly ethereal Sauvignon Blanc from a lesser-known appellation in Monterey County. Grown in open lagars, this is deliciously refreshing, offering a vibrant, grassy, floral start to a summer with a burst of fresh lemon, green apple and green herb. You`d be hard pressed to think of another Italian sparkling wine made from Ribolla Gialla grapes, a native variety of northeast Italy. This rare expression offers aromas of yellow flower and stone fruit followed by a smooth, fresh mouthfeel. Crisp and creamy, this is an easygoing but intense wine. It has a touch of tropical fruit to balance the soft texture.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with ripe fruit and a warm, full feel. There are strong peppercorn, minty aromas, good raspberry fruit, and a hint of spice behind the somewhat generic cherry fruits. The blend is 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Carmenère and 6% Petit Verdot. With aromas like sweet vanilla, caramelized blackberry and buttered cinnamon toast, this is a good but not treacly summer wine. But there`s no denying the acidity, and even a suggestion of milk chocolate. It`s clean and pretty good, but not going anywhere. For a wine with only 9% alcohol, this is surprisingly full bodied, with plenty of weight and richness. It has plenty of spice and nut flavors, plus a ripe, round mouthfeel, and soft, underripe cherry and blackberry flavors.
