Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with plenty of fruit and some complexity. The aromas are clean and light, with notes of herbs, plum and cherry. In the mouth, the wine tastes fresh, light and a bit dilute. Raspberry, vanilla, citrus and herb aromas are followed by light, melony flavors and a hint of granite in the mouth. It goes down easy. Fresh and vibrant, this opens with aromas of red berry, moist earth and a hint of cooking spice. The juicy palate offers up white pepper and raspberry, while bracing acidity provides the backbone. Intense aromas of smoke, pine needles, sea salt and peach pit waft from the glass of this savory, salty, mouth-filling wine. The palate is clean and crisp, but lacking zest and mouthfeel, suggesting hints of berry and dried herb alongside chalky acidity.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with a creamy mousse and bright acidity. Yet it also boasts enough structure to stand up to simple red meat dishes. So drink it now with a nice steak, but give it a few hours in the bath to freshen up. So delicious now, so drink it now, with very good curries, with sweet toasted oak and a hint of pepper, and a final resting place of ripe black currant and dark chocolate. But it must be ageable, so don`t drink it before 2015, because it`s just fine to drink now. Otherwise it will quickly get old. Always one of the most approachable Pinotons from Australia, the 2005 Sagrantino is medium-bodied and weighty, with dusty tannins. The aromas of spice, strawberry and herb are bright, and the wine has a finish that seems mildly bitter. Yet it delivers pleasure, not pain, and is balanced by acidity.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with bright, forward fruit tones and a light touch of oak. There are strong components of raspberry and boysenberry, with a complex suggestion of dried herbs and a superb finish. In defining a trend among Red wines, the more you get of this Rhône-style blend, the more you hope for a Pinot Noir that`s not sophisticated. -J.M. Give this young wine until Christmas. It`s very, tannic, and the tannins are thick and dry. It shows such a strong mineralic structure, with an intense flavor of cola and citrus, which dominates. Yet there is an balance of strawberries and cherries, and the acidity is blossiful. A great effort from a winery with a track record, and a price that keeps climbing.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with bright, forward fruit tones and a supple, creamy texture that`s derived from naturally grown Chardonnay. There`s plenty of depth and some tannic muscle for a New World wine, but it remains very youthful, and the acidity is very high, making it tangy and grapey on the finish. Try after 2012. Very rich, extracted and in accordance with the extra age definition, this is no small-fruit bubbly. It`s big and briary, and it`s delicious in all its full-flavored, flamboyant glory. The best of the 2011 releases from Long John in California, which should all begin with this excellent blend. Heady but balanced aromas of lemon blossom, lemon mousse, citrus and eucalyptus lead the nose. A touch of creamy lemon sharpens the entire palate, as buttery oak and vanilla accents help it taste.
