Bright straw. Grassy citrus and pear aromas are given an exotic twist by a strong blast of yellow rose. Spicy and firm in structure, with energetic citrus zest and orchard fruit flavors on a light frame. Finishes taut and focused, with refreshingly bitter quinine and lime peel notes and very good length.
An idiosyncratic blend of 70% cabernet sauvignon, 25% tempranillo and 5% zinfandel. Dark red. Smokey red currant and cherry on the nose, plus a whiff of pungent herbs. Bitter cherry and plum flavors are subtly sweet, with gentle acidity providing structure. Suave, silky and sweet on the finish, which features a strong note of cherry preserves. Very easy to drink.
Pale silver. Musky, herbal aromas of thyme, fennel and fresh-cut grass. Round and fleshy n the mouth, with flavors of honeydew mellow, Asian pear and ripe apples. The dry finish emphasizes the pear note.
Medium, slightly fading red. Chinese black beans, cherry, roasted coffee and mint on the nose. Firm and chunky, with bitter cherry, dark chocolate and espresso flavors. Seemed quite roasted initially but grew fresher on the finish which shows a sweet blackberry quality.
