Silver Oak - Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley
This is a fairly straightforward cab yet still enjoyable. Core of blackberry and plum fruit accented by hints of chalk, olives and leather. Soft, rounded tannins with decent length on the finish.
Donnhoff - Oberhauser Leistenberg Riesling Kabinett
Delicious. Flavors of honey, white peach, mandarin orange, black tea, and apple blossom. Balanced by good acidity and freshness. Long, flavorful finish that goes on and on. Yum!
Aphillanthes - Cotes du Rhone Villages Trois Cepages
Flavors of candied raspberry, cherry and strawberry. Slight notes of tobacco and leather. Still some grip to the finely grained tannins. A bit thin on the finish yet still enjoyable.
Turley - Zinfandel Ueberroth Vineyard
This is my favorite type of Turley zin. Sweet, sappy and extracted blackberry and black cherry fruit. Notes of kirsch, pine pitch, sweet tobacco, white pepper and baking spices add complexity. Well-balanced so not cloying. Long satisfying and flavorful finish keeps you coming back for more. Very, very enjoyable.
Mas de Daumas Gassac - VDP de l'Herault
One of my favorite ones and drinking beautifully. Ripe dark berry fruit, leather, tobacco, lead pencil with finely grained tannins. Long, flavorful finish.
