A very interesting blend of tropical fruit and citrus, mango and tangerine over white grapefruit, with a hint of cut grass. Very highly recommended.
On the sweeter side of off-dry. Hints of dried apricot and Meyer lemon on the mid-palate. Ripe, even bruised, rather than tart, apples linger on the finish. Recommended. DH
In the world of marketing and sales, it is always good when you can keep things simple. Of course, this can be quite a challenge for an industry like the wine industry, where realities of place, grapes, vintages, styles, and terroir add up as so many variables to take into account—enough to confuse everyone but the aficionados.
With its sweet creaminess, it is a sure crowd-pleaser to pour for the pre-dinner kitchen klatch at any party or family gathering. Highly Recommended. DH
Apples, fig, and a touch of toast show on the nose. On the palate, pears and figs lead on the attack. Moderate oak use (36% new French) adds depth and a deft touch of vanilla without overpowering fruit. Apples join on the mid-palate. There is a lingering smoke over apple and pear on the finish. This is a nice bottle of wine, avoiding overpowering oak, but adding enough to provide softness and depth. Drink with roast chicken. Recommended. DH
Honeyed aromas, very fruity, with honeyed, peachy flavors, and honey even in the finish. Fruit and citrus overwhelm the crispness you’d expect to find in a wine made from pinot grigio grapes. It’s a nice example of a modern sweet wine, probably a crowd-pleaser, but not really a pinot grigio. Maybe they should rename it? Recommended with reservations. BSE
