Clean, pear drop bouquet. Light bodied, touch of fruit, dry enough, but not long. OK.
White

Shy, crisp nose, some peach. Light bodied, green fruit, some acidity. OK
Red
2007 Vinhos Zanrosso Cabernet Sauvignon Tinto Seco Reserva Brazil, Rio Grande do Sul, Serra Gaúcha
82 points
Quite a peppery nose, as well as some old oak. Medium bodied, green pepper, stalky. Decent length, a bit stringent.
Red
2009 Vinhos Zanrosso Merlot Tinto Seco Reserva Brazil, Rio Grande do Sul, Serra Gaúcha
82 points
A hint of sandalwood, a whiff of caramel, some red plum fruit. The palate is medium bodied, red fruit again, slightly light, slightly short.
Red
2006 Vinhos Zanrosso Teroldego Tinto Seco Brazil, Rio Grande do Sul, Serra Gaúcha
81 points
Fruit stew, some tar, kirsch. Medium bodied, mature fruit, some secondary aromas. It's not bad but non-descript. Mature red wine... that's about it.
Red
2007 Vinhos Zanrosso Ancellotta Tinto Seco Brazil, Rio Grande do Sul, Serra Gaúcha
83 points
Raspberry, liquorice nose. Medium bodied, red fruits from the forest, decent finish, fruit kernels.
Red
2007 Vinhos Zanrosso Tannat Tinto Seco Brazil, Rio Grande do Sul, Serra Gaúcha
82 points
Red fruits and violets on the nose. Medium bodied, the fruit is a tad bit fresher in this wine, wild raspberry, cedar. Not bad but light--- could have done with a few extra pounds around the waist.
Red
2009 Vinhos Zanrosso Carménère Tinto Seco Brazil, Rio Grande do Sul, Serra Gaúcha
84 points
Foxy nose; wild herbs, charcoal. Medium bodied, inky, savoury palate. Decent finish with that tangy wild savoury thing coming back. Far from the prettiest wine in the line-up, it nevertheless is the best because it brings out something wild and untamed. Reminds me a bit of those southern French village brutes from vineyards where no flying winemaker has ever set his foot.
