Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with aromas of grapefruit skin, butterscotch and honey that accent peach and melon fruit tones. It`s dry in style, yet so honeyed it`s sweet, and feels rich on the palate with a honey finish. This is a dry, delicately structured Pinot. Fresh and fruity in raspberry and cherry fruit, it also has a nice, finely tannic texture and an impressively earthy, toasty finish. Drink over the next few years. The vineyard is in the Santa Maria Valley, and the wine shows that quality. The cool vintage has produced a rich, creamy, yellow fruit and spice-flavored wine, the fruit balanced with a touch of acidity to leave a clean, crisp finish. Keep for one to three years.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with a creamy texture and appealing acidity. However, there are problems, beginning with a green, vegetal quality that dissipates after a few months in the glass. A very good wine with likable height and weight, with a slightly rustic bite to the cherry, cola and licorice flavors. The acidity is nice and even slightly riper. Drink now. Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara Swirls of smoke and freshly pressed apples entice on the nose of this lean, dry Riesling. On the palate, hints of chalk and wet stone meld with a shower of fresh white grapefruit flavors, finishing long with a lingering waft of dusty mineral. Made with organically farmed grapes, this opens with aromas of charred earth, black-skinned berry and a hint of chopped herb.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with bright acidity, slightly funky apple fruits and a clean, fruity finish. Drink now. A solid brut, almost unoaked, with modest but appealing aromas of lime, apple and lemon blossom. The mouthfeel is basic, while flavors of green apple, lime and lemon zest finish leesy and a touch bitter. Earthy and earthy, with aromas of bright berry fruits and farmyard. The palate is juicy and a touch wayward, while flavors of red plum and currant are sour, spicy and a touch green. Very good and lucid, but a bit lean and fast. This is a crisp, but not showy, Châteauneuf-du-Pape. It`s deliciously bright and pure in citrus and melon, with a fine kick of acidity. And the finish adds a hint of raisins to the mix.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as advertised in terms of ripe, full fruit flavors and feel. It`s sweet in feel with abundant blueberry, cherry, dark chocolate, raisin and fig flavors. There`s good structure, but the wine seems on the drying side and there`s a note of green tannins that don`t brighten up the mouth. This 50-50 blend of Cab and Syrah is soft and fruity, with an attractively crisp character. It is sufficient, though it would be much better with another year or two in the bottle. Coffee, cigarbox and mocha aromas and equally attractive flavors mark this medium-bodied, generously ripe wine. It`s a great introduction to Hawke`s Bay/Temecula/Apple Valley/Grenache/Grannet/Simard/Leather Bay/Granny Smith apple/Petite Sirah.
