Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with bright acidity, but there`s a certain greenness that seems odd. The blend is 75% Viognier and 25% Marsanne. One-quarter of the Sauvignon Blanc in the blend is aged in barrique, and the wine appears fleshy in the mouth, both rich and tart in acidity. It seems a little thin on the finish, but very drinkable. This blend of 43% Syrah, 31% Mourvèdre and 23% Grenache is a Washington State red that`s almost as good as their Monastrell. It`s extremely tannic, with a sandpapery mouthfeel, but the purity of the flavors is on the low side, suggesting good health. Surprisingly lots of blackberry jam and graphite show the brisk acidity of a cool-climate varietal.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as advertised. It`s clean, fruity and also herbal, with good berry and cherry aromas offset by a green, grassy component. Juicy and herbal in the mouth, with sharp, short but not overdone flavors of earth, pollen and tomato juice. Short and sharp on the finish. Opens with good berry aromas as well as a medicinal, minty note. Feels a bit choppy and rough, with hard tannins and sweet cherry flavors. Feels exuberant but slightly unnuanced, which ultimately means it`s big, like a dessert wine or Port.Medicinal and direct on the bouquet, which is a no-no; it`s also murky, heavy and rubbery. Shows the herbal, green-apple scent of Chile, but also spices and scents of earth and meadow herbs.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with bright acidity, slightly funky tannins and a solid core of dry tannins. So give it another year and drink with your favorite Chard. A blend of Arinto and Antão Vaz, this is an obviously young wine. That means the nose and palate are now forming, and the black-currant fruit flavors are still subdued by the aggressive texture. It will develop with some time, but drink from 2016. In the past we said the enemy of El Enemigo was too much oak; that heavy oak character persists, but it is more behind the ripe berry aromas, loud acidity and dry tannins. So drink this wine sooner rather than later. Part of this fine estate`s estate blend is made entirely from Chardonnay. In the mouth, it`s clean and sophisticated, with pineapple, orange and yeasty flavors.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with ripe fruit, but it lacks the depth and suppleness that many of them expect from a Napa valley Petite Sirah. It`s a little earthier, and it delivers plenty of chocolate on the finish. A little too brittle and tart when touched with a charm gun, but there is plenty of vivid raspberry and red cherry fruit, solid and juicy tannins, and the sort of twist you usually find in red wines, this just can`t be beat. Give it 3–4 years in the cellar. The winery`s basic Chardonnay has evolved into a modern, balanced version with attractive peach, citrus and mineral flavors. It lacks the intensity and structural integrity that you sometimes find from the old vineyards. Young, tight, acidic and red fruit-driven, this wonderfully complex Chardonnay has something for everyone.
Wine experts say this Red wine delivers as promised, with bright acidity, a firm structure and a touch of caramel. The finish is dry and crisp, and the grapes are sourced from cooler Beaujolais County sites. Ribolla Gialla typically delivers unique aromas of caramel, butterscotch and sweet barbecue sauce, but this vintage seems to be a whole lot lower. The mouthfeel is light, with smooth yellow apple and spice flavors and a hint of toast. This is a low-production Malbec (3,000 cases) from the winery`s cool-climate estate vineyard. It`s soft, fruity and extremely fruity, with a light minerality and borderline sweetness that give it a very refreshing feel. This is a straightforward, accessible wine. The aromas of cocoa, vanilla and herb will please anyone`s palate, and the wine is not known as particularly herbal.
