Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with plenty of forward fruit and some oak nuances. The aromas are pleasant, inviting and a bit earthy. The nose does not quite promise freshness, but in the mouth the wine has more interest than the flavors suggest. The finish is clean and tight, not bad but slightly drying. Funky, sweaty aromas of shoe polish and black fruits are horsey and warm on the nose. The palate is a touch acidic, but clean on the back side, with decent weight and balance. Dry, but not as crisp as the nose suggests. While there are assertive aromas of black currant, burnt offering aromas, the palate brings more of the same, smelling like those of rubber and mint. Finishes resiny. Weird and all over the map. A ripe fruity wine, smoky and minerally, with some white currant acidity.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with a strong dose of new oak that smoothes out the softened tannins and brings in some acidity to keep the wine balanced. Drink it over the next several years. Earthy, woody berry aromas are highly herbal and suggestive of steak. This is a bit scratchy on the tongue, while big, woody flavors of currant and plum finish woody and with a resiny feel. Intensely ripe raspberry and cherry pie and cola flavors mark this wine, which is full-bodied but very tannic. The 15% alcohol is well concealed, but the fine tannins appear often in the nose and appear in the mouth, making this refined 100% varietal wine an excellent match for anything that wants a rich red. This opens with smoky, spicy aromas that suggest baked plum, dark spice and nutmeg.
Wine experts say this Red wine is the future of this southern Rhône Valley region. A blend of blocks in a new Las Vegas winery, it`s loaded with bright fruit, gentle tannins and a soft, easygoing mouthfeel. Drink it now for its forward, cherry-berry fruit, fine acids and clean, quaffable mouthfeel. Still quite young, this has a strongly oxidative character. It has wood and intense black currant flavors as well as a concentrated and a keenly herbal character. Although aged entirely, the wine is very drinkable now. Aromas of French oak and coconut lead the nose. The muddled palate offers rather mealy, salty notes alongside astringent oak and plum. Drink through 2015. This has just enough fresh fruit to offer a rough-and-ready approach. But there are interesting notes of exotic Asian spice, especially chamomile, lychee and dill.
Wine experts say this Red wine is the future of the Northwest. A blend of Santa Rosa Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, it`s enormously complex. It`s pure mountain mountain reds in a nutshell, with complex flavors of wild cherry, raspberry jam, blood orange rind and musky tea. The structure is superb, the balance is superb, and the wine is fully dry. The grapes come from Napa, Stillwater Creek and a tiny, narrow pocket within the appellation. Only Quinta Cotta grapes are used for the blending. Best Buy. Although he is best known for wines like this Cabernet Sauvignon, California really needs a good red wine to match its power to its pungency. Gap`s new Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz are excellent, and this wine is at the top of that list.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with bright acidity and a backbone of strong tannins. The fruit is solid but not very complex, with red and black berry fruit flavors and a backbone of lightly grainy tannins. A touch of green tea and cocoa powder lingers on the finish. A bit rugged, with some unripeness, but otherwise a solid Cabernet, drily tannic and cellarworthy. It`s dry, softly astringent and earthy, with earthy cedar and currant flavors. Powerful, concentrated flavors of blackberry and currant are ripe, and the tannins are soft and smooth. This is an easy Port to drink now, and it should be produced fairly aggressively. There`s a very good wine in there, with its clean, crisp blackberry and fine hints of pepper and clove.
