Tablas Creek - Petit Manseng
Rich yellow in color with glints of green and aromas of melon, honey, and crushed rocks. Off-dry, but with a bracing acidic finish, this unusual varietal tastes of melon and candied citron, with a persistent, mineral-laden finish reminiscent of nectarines. This wine would match well with strong cheeses or spicy Middle Eastern cuisine.
Siduri - Pinot Noir Arbre Vert Vineyard
Pale red rose in color but with very present aromatics of red cherry, strawberry, vanilla, rhubarb, and cinnamon, this Oregonian Pinot Noir is as delicate on the palate as it is on the eye. Cherry fruit mingles with an earthy-root quality and hints of baking spices.
Francois Villard - VdP des Collines Rhodaniennes Les Contours de Deponcins
Pale, crystal-clear yellow in color, with a nose of honeysuckle, green apples, and lime zest. On the palate, explosive floral and citrus flavors coat the tongue. A creamy mouthfeel from perhaps a tiny bit of residual sugar helps flavors to linger. A wonderful wine.
Tablas Creek - Patelin de Tablas
Dark ruby in color, with a nose expressing sweet oak as well as red and black fruit. Oak flavor slightly overpowers the fruit on the palate.One dimensional, but pleasing for weeknight consumption.
Ridge - Mazzoni Home Ranch
Deep ruby in color, with aromas of blackberry jam and toasty oak. On the palate, a bit of spice adds interest to fruity berry flavors. More intense than the 2008, perhaps because there is more Zinfandel in the blend; 67% Zin, 31% Carignane, 2% Petite Sirah.
