Sledgehammer - Malbec El Gaucho
Shows plenty of Malbec typicity without going over the top. Don't let the label scare you. This is not a fruit bomb, but a balanced, deep and very tasty wine that paired well with grilled chicken and beef. A good value, will buy again.
Rather small-scaled but balanced. Shows a flavor profile typical of St. Emilion (dark fruits, something akin to black cherry). Somewhat drier that most Bdx. A good food wine.
Smooth and balanced. Tannins fully integrated. Medium weight on the palate with a long finish. Fairly big bouquet. Will buy again.
Beauregard - Ducasse Cuvee Albertine Peyri
Nicely balanced between the zippy Sauvignon Blanc and the creamy Semillon. Relatively light in the mouth and palate-cleansing. Would buy again.
Chainier - Chateau de la Roche Blanc
This is very minerally with relatively generous fruit and a suggestion of smoke on the finish. Did not have a sour aftertaste like many Loire SBs do. An excellent pairing with linguine in white clam sauce. Will buy again.
