Tasted in a flight with far more expensive wines, this Pinot stood proud. It’s dry and richly complex, with the silk-and-satin texture you want. The flavors reward with cherries, cola, Canadian bacon, Indian spices and sandalwood. At this price, it’s a steal.
Rich is the word for this Merlot. It flatters the palate with jammy black cherries, red currants, anise, cocoa and violets, accented with sweet, smoky oak. Turns a bit one-dimensional, but offers plenty of flavor.
A fine, savory and frankly delicious Sauvignon Blanc marked by balanced, fruity flavors. With a bit of sweetness, it rewards with pineapples, lemon tart, Key lime pie, vanilla and figs. Crisp acidity provides a counterpoint to the richness.
Here’s a solid wine that provides lots of elegant pleasure at a pretty good price. It’s dry and firm in tannins, with deep, long flavors of blackberries and black cherries, red currants, anise and sandalwood. Ready to drink now.
