It's like someone took a Peaches & Crème Creme Savers hard candy and spun it into cotton candy and then turned it into a delicious cava.
White - Off-dry
On the nose tons of petrol, also white flowers, honey, lemon curd, green apple skin, wet stones and over-ripe apricot. On the palate more floral honey, stone fruits and stone but also gentle spice, soft lime and pear. It has juicy, juicy acidity, a generous length and a bit of residual sugar. I’d say this wine is just hitting its stride and has many years to go.

It seemed this bottle was past it's prime. There was not enough acidity to support the sweetness in the glass.

At first there was a light, whipped orange/passion fruit flavor, a sort of creaminess, that gave way to honey but with perfectly supporting acidity and then the whipped tropical notes returned. This was a beautiful wine that is still showing wonderfully.

Everything I want a Riesling to be. This wine still had a freshness to it that you'd expect in a much younger wine. Excellent acidity and the group favorite of the night.
White - Fortified
Lots of nutty aromas with light to medium body and a rich but dry flavor.

N.V. Valdespino Manzanilla Deliciosa Manzanilla de Sanlúcar de Barrameda Palomino Fino (view label images)
Less salinity than the La Cigarrera Manzanilla we drank it with but brighter acidity. Maybe the most refined manzanilla I’ve had.
White
Delicious, mouth-watering acidity, floral on the nose with minerality on the palate. Did I mention delicious acidity?

Quite possibly on the best wine I've ever enjoyed. Balanced in every way, a subdued nose with some mineral, and the most pleasant spice on the palate. I reminded me of itself the first night I'd tasted it but it has matured beautifully!
Red
This wine was delicious! It was complex with a variety of flavors on the palate with just a hint of smoke riding over the top of them all. A long finish that made me take another sip. The bottle disappeared too fast and I was sad I didn't have another.
Red
A rustic nose, heavy on the palate but still very smooth.
Red
This wine alerts you that it's not French but mixing an equal amount of fruit in with the typical funkiness of Grenache. It's very smooth on the palate with a fairly long finish. It was great with food but it was almost equally good by itself.

This wine has a faint nose that's mostly chemical with very little fruit. There is sweet fruit on the palate with soft tannins and really almost perfect acidity for what this wine is.
Red
This wine is fruity but unlike so much other Beaujolais, it is wine of substance. It is multi-dimensional in your mouth and has a decent finish.
Red
Amazing! The minerality is out of this world and there is a kiss of fruit that is delightful!
Red
This wine was beginning to show complexity and had a smooth characteristic but could have benefited from slightly more acidity.

Love this wine. It's earthy with a bit of manure but just a hint and a thoroughly enjoyable wine.

The was the best wine I've ever had. It was interesting and constantly evolved over the entire evening. Always complex, the nose at times showed cherry, raspberry and blueberry, always accompanied by a roasted sweetness. The palate was elegant and smooth with perfect - completely perfect - acidity. This is the first time I remember being so disappointed that a wine was gone. Outstanding.

We might have waited a little too long to open this bottle but it was still good. The nose smelled "blue" and was only moderately complex. It still had nice acidity with a few berry flavors on the palate. Paired nicely with a grilled beef tenderloin.

A delightfully, complex nose where the fruit was secondary to other, more interesting, things. Nicely settled tanins allowed the wine to be smooth on the palate while still having plenty of body. I really enjoyed this old-world styled wine.

Strawberries and white pepper on the nose and and a soft, pleasant spiciness in the mouth. with really nice acidity. A touch of sharpness but pretty nice.

This wine was amazing! It had deep, rich flavors from the moment I opened the bottle but it kept evolving even through the next day. I really wish I had a case of this.

This is such a harmonious wine. Beautiful acid, just a hint of sulfur and it is wonderful. Sad I only have 2 bottles left.

I'm not always an acid freak about wine, but this wine's acidity is just about perfect.

Not enough acidity to support the sweetness. But an easy drinking, fairly sweet Riesling. Not bad.

A little too much heat, not very Pinot Noir-like. An ok bottle but nothing too special.
