Marc Kent gets it right again with this intense, elegant Syrah. Waves of dark berry and vanilla hit the palate, with an edge of coffee and pepper. The aromas are great too: plum, herbs and cassis. This wine can be enjoyed today but it has enough structure to age very nicely. Imported by Vineyard Brands.
Spicy red berries, cedar, vanilla and clove on the nose are followed by delicious, savory layers of smoke, spice and cherry and black currant fruit in this go-to Cabernet. Mouthfilling with a spicy backbone and fine-grained tannins, finishing with a smoky, savory edge. A distinctive red with heft.
This Syrah has a rustic but elegant nature: aromas of raspberry, black pepper, smoked sausage and cloves prevail, while full-bodied but integrated flavors of anise, pepper and berry follow. The wine is robust but has a velvety character and a spicy finish.
A rich spicy nose paired with plum and red berry is followed by earthy, dry, French-style Syrah flavors. Classic and restrained and a food-friendly winner, the wine has structure and a lingering finish.
Green apple and white watermelon rind lead the way on this Sauv Blanc, as flavors of green fig and bright citrus liven up the medium-weight mouth. Balanced and very drinkable; enjoy now.
This is very clean, lightweight and tasty. The nose has a lovely note of lychee, along with citrus peel, fresh-cut grass and a hint of basil that extend to the palate, finishing with toast and grass. Best Buy. —K.F.
