Adair - Rosalais
The label says "dry red" but it's really a semi-dry rose. Not a favorite.
Apothic - Red Winemaker's Blend
Blend of Syrah, Zinfandel and Merlot. Apothic Red reveals intense fruit aromas and flavors of blackberry and dark cherry layered with hints of mocha, chocolate and brown spice. The plush, velvety mouthfeel and smooth finish round out this full-bodied red blend. Bit of a fruit bomb but tasty.
Gruet - Pinot Noir Cuvee Gilbert Gruet
My intro to New Mexico wines and a very nice intro indeed. The Pinot Noir is ripe and complete with focused black cherry, plum, anises and floral notes framed by light oak. It finishes with a pretty berry and mineral edge. Combines ripe, supple polished plum, black cherry and berry notes and a wonderful lingering aftertaste.
Whitecliff - Pinot Noir Huddleson Vineyard
Light and tasty with intense cherry and spice. One of the better Hudson Valley Pinot Noirs.
Chateau Frank - Blanc de Blancs
Presenting typical complexity and delicate flavors, this wine exemplifies the traditional Blanc de Blancs style. A crisp acidity accompanied by rich pear and honeysuckle with citrus, lemon, and ginger makes this Sparkling Wine vibrantly pleasant. Extended lees aging (tirage) gives earthy and toasty notes with a soft vanilla finish.
