Light, with cherry and orange peel on the nose. So it’s not surprising that snappy cherry and raspberry flavors follow. Shows a lot of pop and acidity, yet it manages to fold in some pepper and chocolate. Imported by Prestige Wine Group.
Pretty darn good red wine for what it costs. Smells like pure raspberries and black cherries, with nothing mucking it up. Has balance and acid, a solid mouthfeel, and no abnormal funk or green. In its price category it’s as good as you could ask for. Imported by Jorge Ordoñez/Fine Estates from Spain.
Not a blend that you see often, that’s for sure—it’s 70% Chardonnay, 30% Riesling. The wine offers light peach aromas and flavors, with moderate vanilla and cream to round it out. It’s a broad-shouldered wine, particularly for one that contains Riesling. Good and inexpensive quaff. 5,400 cases produced. Imported by Foster’s Wine Estates Americas.
Solid if a bit creamy, with apple, pear and a hint of spice on the nose. Chunky melon and spice flavors work fairly nicely on the soft, smooth palate. Not the most zesty or lively wine, but what’s on offer is pretty good. Imported by Hemingway & Hale.
