Smoke and tar lead the way on the nose, but rich, ripe fruit follows up on the palate. This is a firm, ripe wine, with layers of black cherry, plum, cassis, chocolate, tar, toast, coffee, spice, citrus and herbs, all couched in supple, silky tannins.
You won’t miss the oak influence with this rich, savory and dry Sauvignon Blanc. It offers a blast of lemon and lime purée, orange peel, pineapple and vanilla flavors, with a hint of tart gooseberry. Delicious and easy to enjoy.
A very pretty, fruit-driven wine, loaded with bright, spicy, cherry, raspberry, plum, toast, licorice and herb flavors. Tannins are firm yet ripe, while the finish is fairly long, though quite oaky. Lingers nicely at the end with the fruit forward.
It’s a Rhône blend of Cinsault, Mourvedre, Grenache and Syrah, entirely made in stainless steel, and it’s as fresh as a berry plucked off the bush. Entirely dry, with crisp acidity, the flavors are of mildly tannic red cherryskins, with a sprinkle of vanilla and cinnamon. Earns extra points for finesse. From Cosentino.
