From Cleveland Winery in Victoria, this Chard shows butter and burnt sugar aromas. On the palate, there is light butter and talc flavors, and a powdery textured finish. Wants more stuffing in the middle.
This is a wine of many personalities: The nose has nutty, cedary notes, but also some brininess. Fruit on the palate is just this side of ripe. A nice effort, but doesn't quite hit its stride.
This Merlot doesn’t live up to Pfeiffer’s excellent sweet wines. It does have a smooth, claylike feel, particularly on the finish, but the baked-fruitcake aromas and flavors aren’t as enjoyable. Imported by American Wine Distributors.
Smells like citrus and peach, with a cottony-vanilla overlay. Citrus stays the course on the palate, but the flavors are halfhearted, and the feel soft. But Marquee’s sleek new packaging is quite nice. Imported by Marquee Selections.
Smells almost cloying, like raspberries and strawberry preserves, with the barest hints of herb and earth. The same sweet fruit flavors appear on the palate, along with some Sweet Tart. Imported by Marquee Selections.
