Spring Mountain - Estate Reserve
Amazing character...somewhat muted on the nose, but awakens in the mouth as the tannins make their presence felt on the mid-palate. Some blueberry, dark cherry, but more secondary flavors now: earthy notes, cedar and a long finish.
Illumination - Sauvignon Blanc
The inclusion of a little Semillon adds depth, complexity and mouthfeel. Our favorite New World Sauv Blanc/Bourdeaux style
D'Arenberg - Shiraz The Dead Arm
those who rated this a "51" pt wine must be using a 55-point scale!
Chateau St Jean - Cinq Cepages
elegant and balanced, flavors of chocolate covered cherries and espresso notes. medium acid, medium length
