Wine experts say this White wine delivers as it`s presented. It starts off with strong floral aromas, then comes huge Gigantic overtones that dominate the palate. Firmly tannic in the mouth, the oak is overwhelming, which gives the wine a sandpapery taste. Finishes chocolaty and ripe. Very nice from an extreme coastal Pinot Noir. Very ripe, rich in fruits, sweet, even over all blackberry and cherry jam, soft in the mouth. There are some problems, but not too much. Drink now. Good, rich, oaky Cabernet. It`s a little sweet, showing blackberries, cherries and currants, with a smoky, flabby coating of sweet oak. The tannins are refined and there`s a fine streak of minerality. The name of this wine doesn`t lie; it`s a showy, jammy, sweet old-fashioned Viognier.
Wine experts say this White wine delivers as it starts to enter its prime about five years after the vintage. It`s an unusually fresh and mature wine, perhaps because it arrived around the same time as the more widely available Viognier. The fruit comes from two Oak Knoll AVAs, one in each cell. The other, however, came down from the northern vineyards of the valley, resulting in an intensely fruity wine that makes a reprise of some of the vineyard`s faults. Here`s a tannic, dry, wonderfully refreshing flavors of cherries, currants and cola. Good as it is, it should age gracefully through at least 2019. The second wine of Château Smith, this is a ripe, cherry-flavored wine that is balanced by the acidity. It has a good, tight, crisp texture as well as red berry fruits. So although it is well oaked, it does not fully have the stuffing to age.
Wine experts say this White wine delivers as it should. It`s peppery yet dry, with lots of oaky, lemony freshness at the core. And what a lovely wine to pair with pasta with mushroom risotto or creamy risotto with rosemary and thyme. This is one of the richer examples of Cabernet from Napa Valley. It offers plump, slightly candied flavors of blackberry jam and cassis and finishes with soft tannins and just the right amount of acid to keep it interesting. Best now and for a few years. Superrich for a Petite Sirah, unusually high in alcohol. But it`s delicious in blackberries, cherries, chocolate and cola, and the sweet acids keep the alcohol down. Drink this wine now for its softness or be happy. Mildly bearable, with light flavors of blackberry and black pepper. More of a vegetal character, with soft tannins and easy acidity.
Wine experts say this White wine delivers just what consumers love about New World Zonclones. Great acidity and fresh, light fruit give it a soapy character, and the honeyed quality at the end. But there`s nooremeandro, much like the way in which the cedary note is integrated into the whole. This is a great New World Chardonnay with aging potential—a far more youthful wine than Ginagre. It`s drinking well now, but should hold well, through 2014. L`Ecole tackles, with great success, with the Williams Red Wine becoming the latest expression from a large-scale effort at this young, New World Chablis. The nose is friendly, while the palate, once sipped, veers more in the Green Hills style, suggesting peaches and cups of mango. The flavors are mild—peach, passion fruit—but fit the appellation, with ample acidity and a deft texture.
Wine experts say this White wine delivers. It`s peppery yet crisp, with plenty of herbal, green elements, and plenty of lime and passion fruit. The length and detail are impressive. Damilano`s top Chardonnay is an impressive expression of the appellation`s prime growing season. It offers initial wafts of herb, accented by toasted hazelnut, clove and cedar, finishing on a lingering layer of minerality. Aromas of moist earth, forest floor, pressed violet and a whiff of farmyard lead the nose on this impressive wine. The firmly structured palate offers mature black cherry, licorice, dried sage and espresso, framed by silky, smooth tannins. Drink 2016–2023. The wine is plump and custardy in texture, yet so softer and more mellow. More mellow through the finish, it still shows plenty of minerality to pair with fresh seafood, salads or freshly spiced foods.
