Boysenberry and blueberry notes open this good value, straightforward red. The palate has the slightest grip and the finish is a bit longer than one has a right to expect at this price level.
Here’s a clean, everyday Merlot that offers pleasure for its fruity flavors and dry finish. The blackberries, cherries, currants, blueberries, tobacco, herbs and spices are wrapped into a smooth texture.
There are many worse wines out there than this semisweet Pinot Grigio from warm-climate San Juan Province in Argentina. Definitely part of the new breed, the label is catchy and the price is right. Inside the bottle, the wine is perfectly decent and shows green banana and other tropical fruit flavors. A little cloying, so serve well chilled. Imported by Five Gold Hands.
This is a friendly and very approachable screwcap Pinot Grigio with good consistency, a dim golden hue and aromas of honey, stone fruit and citrus flower. The mouthfeel is lean and simple and the wine offers a fresh, palate-cleansing finish.
A bit aggressive, with handsoap and citrus aromas. The palate is lean and clean, with lemon juice, grapefruit and lime flavors. Any way you look at it, this is an apéritif wine. Expect more from what amounts to a basic Viura and you’re asking too much.
