Meaty and muscular, with a beefy heft that can’t be denied. Fortunately, some peach and berry character affords it the fruit it needs. Flavors of spiced peaches, licorice and grapefruit carry the palate, while it finishes smoky and mildly fruity. With pop and power, this one doesn’t tread lightly.
Earthy and spicy, blending cinnamon and mushroom nuances with meaty, dark-berried flavors. Yet despite the rich-sounding flavors, the mouthfeel is fresh and lively. Try it with red meats and surprise your guests.
Very pretty, with applesauce, bread and cinnamon aromas. The palate sports green apple and papaya flavors, which are followed nicely by a finish that’s dry and smooth. With good size, spirit and substance, this wine hits the right chords.
Salty, even briny scents dominate, along with a slightly resinous character. In the mouth this is a flavorful, rather heavy wine which carries its weight and power in the dead center of the palate. Nothing elegant here, but it’s a good mouthful of fruit, finishing with an herbal-metallic note.
Starts with sweet scents of bread dough, light herb and green apple. Well-made, with lean, fresh flavors of apple and pear. The bubbles are extra fine, and the wine is crisp and balanced. For all its poise, it is a bit one-dimensional. A bracing style best-suited for salty, briny foods.
Light and coppery, this easy-sipping rosé offers clean, simple flavors of cherry and berry candy. The fine bubbles give the mouthfeel a welcome elegance. The fruit flavors are also pretty, but diffuse. It falls off quickly on the finish, leaving just the slightest impression of brine.
