Incredibly balanced, with white flowers and citrus fruit aromas. Round, silky and elegant on the palate yet very fresh, lively and full of energy. The aftertaste is tremendously long, filling the palate with pleasant intensity. $14.99
Dourthe La Grande Cuvee
Crafted 100% from Sauvignon Blanc, this vintage is a very aromatic, crispy and elegant wine. On the nose, it offers intense citrus fruit aromas of lemon and grapefruit, underpinned by an elegant minerality, typical of Sauvignon grown on limestone soil. The lively palate, ample and savoury, is backed by a great freshness. This well-balanced wine culminates in a long, aromatic finish.”
Cooked aromas of raisin open this flabby Garnacha. Stewed berry flavors along with clove and nutmeg notes don't amount to anything serious, while this tastes like spongy spice cake and exhibits almost no tannic grip on the finish. $12.99
Hawks Bay (New Zealand)
The color of rose petals, this is a refreshingly lightweight, accessible Syrah that clocks in at just 11.5% alcohol. Aromas are bouncy and fresh: rhubarb and cranberry, savory herbal and floral notes and a slight roasted, charred quality. The palate is medium in weight, with a savory streak amid crunchy, silky fruit and soft but structured tannins. There's a medicinal bite to the finish. An autumnal wine for drinking now.
