Aphillanthes - Cotes du Rhone Villages Trois Cepages
Straightforward yet very enjoyable. Juicy blueberry and other dark berry fruit. Soft, supple mouthfeel. Tannins rounded and velvety. Long, lingering finish. A very easy drink.
Bacio Divino - Red
Ripe red and dark berry fruit. Some notes of cedar, sweet tobacco, spices, and red raspberry preserves. Finely grained tannins. Good length to the finish.
DuMOL - Pinot Noir Russian River Valley
Still drinking very nicely. Holding its age well. Soft red berry fruit complemented by flavors of dried red cherries, rose petals, black tea and hard candy. Polished, supple tannins fully integrated. Elegant, nuanced finish with good length and flavor.
Ludwig Hiedler - Gruner Veltliner Thal
This is so refreshing and satisfying. Great summer wine. Flavors of fresh cut pear, melon, apple with hints of key lime and wet stone. Fresh acidity and minerality. Good weight to the well-rounded mouthfeel. Flavors and freshness follow through on a lengthy, lip-smacking finish.
Guigal - Crozes-Hermitage
Delicious core of ripe strawberries, raspberries, red and black cherries. Framed beautifully by notes of kirsch, sweet tobacco, new saddle leather and mesquite. Tannins are well rounded and seemlessly integrated. Satisfying finish with good depth and length.
