It may not have very assertive aromas, but the flavors here are concentrated, bringing to mind melon, pineapple and a pinch of ground pepper. It’s rich and weighty on the palate, then goes on to finish long and a bit peppery. Drink now.
This blend of Petit Verdot (40%), Grenache (29%), Shiraz (29%) and Mataro (2%) ends up being a pleasing recipe at an even more pleasing price. Mulberry, plum and vanilla flavors emerge from the glass, while the mouthfeel is full and lush. Probably best over the next year or so.
Possessing bold waves of pineappley fruit, this is an intensely flavored Chardonnay at a reasonable price. It’s fruity and direct, with clean citrus featuring prominently from start to finish.
This medium-bodied Shiraz is sturdily built without being too hard or too fat. Sure, it’s a bit simple, relying on black cherry and plum fruit with modest hints of chocolate and spice, but there’s plenty of intensity for the price.
