Wine experts say this White wine delivers as advertised. It`s dry, crisply acidic and harmonious, with pleasant cherry, herb and oak flavors. Pair it with food to see it at its best. A great swathe of rich, aged fruit on the nose and a final dose of cedar and tobacco leaf. The wine is on the ripe side of the spectrum, bringing in dried herb and cedar, along with a pinch of tartness. Overall, a polished, great Chardonnay that will be happy with food. In a big, bold, modern style, with tar, smoke, and ripe berry flavors. The wine is big, powerful and compact, but not biting or pounding. Doesn`t seem to remember the fruit, but tastes good now with black olive, fine tobacco, hard acids and a good, long finish.
Wine experts say this White wine delivers as it`s rated. It starts with musky, pungent, hors doeuvrind aromas, then quickly tails off. There`s some tobacco and leather throughout, but the wine ultimately finishes crisp and clean. Drink now. This wine`s fragrance, which suggests black fruit and vanilla, is somewhat murky. It lacks the delicacy that comes through the wine on the taste buds. It shows its share of herbal, green notes alongside compost and bergamot notes. Made from 100% Montepulciano grapes grown in high mountain vineyards, this Viognier is extremely prickly and intense with sweet, almost honeyed notes of apricot and pineapple. The mouthfeel is rich and complex, but also dry and crisp.
Wine experts say this White wine delivers as advertised. It`s dry, crisp in acidity and ultrarefined, with citrus, melon, peach and spice flavors. Earns extra points for the long, spicy finish. Full-bodied, broad and oaky, with a liqueur-like character. It contains a good deal of new oak, vanilla and butterscotch, with a soft and lush texture. Shows classic flavors of blackberries, black currants, blueberries, cassis and cedar. Drink now–2013. Unlike most Costières de Nîmes, this one is bone dry, with a light mineral character. It has a youthful citrus character that offers a tight future. The wine is produced from organically grown grapes. An interesting wine that has a hard edge that contrasts the fruit. There is unripeness to the black plums and even so drink now. A dusty, spicy wine, with final ripe black plums.
Wine experts say this White wine delivers as it`s shown. It`s creamy and full-bodied, with apple, melon and cream flavors, enhanced with the smoky, smoky wood. The firmest hint of tannin suggests this could age for another year or two. The wine is crisp, tight and also acidity. It has both richness and minerality. That makes it refreshing, while also giving a wine that is structured to age. Drink from 2017. The wine is tight, stinging and with a minty, tight texture. It does have a good depth of flavor, with lime and citrus acidity, but that tannic structure has been kept in check by a hint of mineral. It could still be going strong for a year. An interesting blend of 37% Zinfandel, 30% Syrah and 30% Petite Sirah, this is a dry, slightly candied wine with a mix of citrus and light tropical notes.
Wine experts say this White wine shows the expected richness of Provence rosé, giving it a very dry character. The red fruits are sustained by a dry core of acidity, although the acidity may soon let the fruit stand up to the firm structure. Drink now. A ripe, fruity wine that also has good structure. It has some weight, leaving a stalky edge that is tight and needs several years to develop. Drink from 2017. The Occasio family has a vineyard in the southern section of Southern California and has produced a very ripe and perfumed wine. It has ripe fruit, raspberry and caramel-covered wood. The fruit also has some prune character which is dried under a mountain sun. It gives a wine that is dry and complex, with the structure to drink now. This is a funky, big-boned, high-alcohol wine that shows the superripe flavors of raisin, baked blackberry and chocolate.
