Wine experts say this White wine delivers as it`s presented. Aromas of violets, black licorice, blackberry and licorice pedigreed in olive oil lead into a darkly textured palate that only mildly bitter tones are able to convey. The fruit is a bit thin, so there`s some cooking. The classic skittle signs on the nose of this wine, with dried apple and pear fruit beginning about midway through. The mouthfeel is cleaner and more traditional, with judicious acidity and pithy flavors of buttered pear and apple peels. Hooray for Shea as an all-around wine, but it is very elegant and correct in structure, with core aromas and flavors of fresh citrus, apple and green apple. The smoke accentuates overtones of fresh herb.
Wine experts say this White wine shows the weaknesses of wines from the warmer Bairrada region. The aromas are pickled and oily, while the flavors are pithy and citrus-driven. Dry and peppery, with a briny citrusy aftertaste. Orange blossom and lemon verbena notes lend sweetness and companionship to this brisk, off-dry Riesling. The palate is tart and ripe, with a honeysuckle character rising up from the glass. Bright and fruity, this is a wine to drink now. It has notes of toast, young fruit and fresh acidity. The wine is open and ready to drink. Foxen`s prestige cuvée is a classic mid-harvest, almost sweet-smelling wine with intense aromas of candied fruit, peach, orange zest and citrus. The mouthfeel is elegant and balanced with a crisp, dancing feel.
Wine experts say this White wine delivers as it`s shown. It`s dry, but rich, creamy, finely balanced, and lightly oaked. The flavors are oaky, but not over the top, of wild strawberry, black cherry, pomegranate and cola. It finishes with a lightly chalky feel. This is the winery`s estate-grown Pinot, entirely from the estate vineyard. Stunning aromas of rose water, cocoa, earthy berry fruits, spice and a touch of iron-rich earth are followed by refined, silky raspberry/cherry flavors with a pleasing chalky feel. The refined all-around character is exceptional. So bright in color, so balanced, so seductive. The whole is cajon and red cherry red fruit, with a streak of lavender. Relatively full, with fine acids and silky tannins, the wine combines magnificently in flavor, supple mouthfeel and long, lingering finish.
Wine experts say this White wine shows the qualities of Oregon Pinot Gris. Its lemon, green apple, white currant, Asian pear, light herb and spice flavors are foamy and thin. It should be decanted for attention. White blossoms and summer white flowers aromatic in waft from this distinctive wine from the Chumash Valley. Smoke whirls amidst green tannins and lime pith in this dry, streamlined wine, which comes from a single vineyard in the Washington mountains. Made principally from Sangiovese and given a few months in oak, this opens with aromas of ripe red berries, dark cooking spice and whiff of underbrush. The forward palate delivers ripe black cherry, black pepper and a hint of star anise alongside assertive tannins and fresh acidity. Drink in six months. This blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah opens with black cherry, chocolate, carob and a balsamic note.
Wine experts say this White wine delivers as promised, with aromas of apricot, pineapple and ripe melon. But the flavors veer toward more complex, peppery, smoky fruit flavors. The wine is fully dry, but there`s an excessive, very dry tang to the finish. The new oak on this 100% Sauvignon Blanc was heavy. It gave the wine a rough and rugged feel, but also enough white fruits and passion fruit to bring out both fruit and structure. Not a classic Gewürztraminer, but it`s a nice alternative for Argentine Gewürztraminers who do need wines from their own region. This wine is very ripe tasting and very fruity, along the lines of pineapple, green apple and apricot jam flavors. Lots of new French oak adds even richer notes of vanilla and buttered toast. Could be drier and give a slightly smoother aftertaste.
