Poised and poetic, this wine starts with a lovely floral nose of violet and unfolds in the mouth with smooth but structured elegance. Overall spiced wood and pepper flavors are meaty but soft.
A solid effort, this wine, named after a law requiring colonists to plant vineyards, boasts aromas of tropical fruit and grilled nuts, toasty, citrusy flavors and a lemon-pineapple finish.
Smells oaky at first, with scents of buttered toast, vanilla and grilled nuts leading the way, then shows more fruit on the palate, blending pear, orange and melon flavors. Citrus notes linger on the finish.
This is a fresh, approachable style of Viogner, offering a combination of apple, honey and toast on the nose and balanced flavors of curvy fruit and flowers on the palate. The viscous mouthfeel and lingering finish give the wine an opulent appeal. Not terribly complex, but good overall.
Round and full, this wine has moderate acidity that keeps it from cloying and white fruit flavors that are sweet but not up to the richness of most dessert wines. A barnyard note plays a minor role, detracting from the overall sweetness.
A rich, toasty nose suggests depth and dimension in the glass, and on the palate, this 100% French oak-fermented Chard delivers most of what it adver tises. Good fruit body and nice flavors of creamy spice. Lacks finish but good overall. Will pair well with grilled seafood and summer salads.
This primarily barrel-fermented and barrel-aged Chardonnay offers toasty oak on the nose and a palate rounded out by expressive fruit. Soft and friendly, it has a lingering finish but is not overly complex. Pair wth game birds and seafood.
