Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with ripe fruit augmented with complex notes of apricots, dates and hazelnuts. The richness is balanced by a good mineral streak, and the wine is ready to drink now. All of Viu Manent`s single-vineyard wines have this message: It`s clean, racy and super-clean. Right off, you get honey, jelly and white flower flavors that seem a bit forward, but don`t interfere with the fresh, crisp Chardonnay fruit. The deeper shade of Pinot Gris comes from the south of France, which gives this a very mineral style of Sauvignon Blanc. There`s attractive, tight citrus acidity here, and a green, crisp aftertaste. Buttered toast and vanilla scents rise to the top of this Cabernet-driven blend, but show more on the palate, where baked red cherry, herb and pepper flavors are joined by hints of vanilla and nut.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with bright acidity, a crisp texture and a light touch of pepper, but it`s not really a wine because of the herbal notes. Instead, it`s an interesting, deeply flavored, earthy wine with lots of new and exciting notes. It has concentration, body and some slightly green tannins in the finish. This is a Merlot-dominated, 10-year old wine. It`s not quite ripe, with hard, peppery tannins and lots of acidity. But it does show great depth of flavor. There are red fruits, baked apples and a dash of nutmeg. This is a wine for freshness and a long time. A lovely, silky Sauvignon Blanc, with interesting citrus, herb, and tropical flavors. A touch of misspelled country, but the nose and the flavors are all front and center. The wine has a nice, long hangtime feel, and is not for everyone.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with bright, peppery cherry fruit accented by toasty oak. If this wine had a continental edge, it is very much a Zinfandel. The tannins, in fact,oppen white wines, so the flavors of currants and spices are very distinctive. But that`s a gamy, horsey character, with a strong meat-juice component. A real winner; only 54 cases made. A proprietary blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Cabernet Franc, this is a ripped, austere wine. It seems to boil in the mouth, the aromas picking up notes of church incense, white pepper and rubbed herb. The flavors are grounded by good acidity and a good while body. Very rich, fruity and full of ripe berry flavors, but firmly in the style of the vintage.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers. It`s dry, brisk in acidity and ultrarefined, offering an array of raspberries, cherries, currants, sandalwood and white pepper flavors. New oak adds smoky, bacon and bacon-sticking qualities, and the alcohol is refreshingly moderate. The grapes come from this Sonoma County appellation, in the western part of the appellation, which is a good place to start. Very delicate, yet so finely extracted, this wine exudes freshness and smells of ripe red cherries, butterscotch and chocolate, brightened by that magical freshness that makes the variety so popular. In the mouth, it`s forward and alive, with a long, spicy finish. It`s dry, but so elegant, so penetrating, you find yourself dancing across the finish. Best after dinner, but perhaps not as long as you`d expect. This full-bodied wine has much of the richness manifested as sweetness.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with plenty of fruit and a lightly textured character. For now, the wine shows good acidity and red currant flavors, and is clean and sturdy. An interesting wine that should meld beautifully in 5–10 years. Still young, this intense Pinot Noir has an intense character. Acidity and tannins standoff at the moment, the fruit flavors promising more aging. For now, red berry and bitter almond flavors are very present. It should be fine as an apéritif or mixer, but should ease out over the next 8–10 years. Minty, candied aromas of berry fruits and wet cement announce a wine that`s not very bright. This is full in the mouth, with piercing acidity framing lush plum and berry flavors. It`s almost overripe, and wants a full-bodied punch for near-term drinking.
