fast legs, smelled like rubbing alcohol. Has a flavor like dried cherries, raisin, and tar. Finish is menthol and eucalyptus.

Intense red ripe fruits, tobacco, and black pepper on the finish. Big bold tannins and a lingering finish. A little dry for my taste; made my mouth feel like a cottonball but overall very refined with lots of fruit to balance the peppery dryness.

Lots of mineral, stoniness, and citrus on the nose; didnt get any fruit or citrus just effervescence and wet rock. Perhaps it was because I tasted this wine at well below room temperature but to me it was really dry with lots of minerality.

cedar, violets, bing cherries, and toasty oak finish. The tannins are very much present but smooth and somewhat subdued. Boneless beef short ribs really brought out the fruit and silky texture.

Light to medium bodied wine with firm but smooth tannins and lots of juicy acidity. Notes of bing cherry, boysenberry, chocolate, and mint with a long lingering finish. Very good food wine; went excellent with pesto sauce over angel-hair pasta.

Very light yellow in the glass with a bouquet of mineral, stoniness, and citrus. My first taste of this was 100% lime and frankly a bit too acidic but once I swirled it and gave it a moment to breath I got notes of Meyer lemon, mouth watering tropical fruit, and toasty oak. This drinks very much like Sauvignon blanc but very good QPR.

Wine is bright yellow in the glass; the body is medium. The nose is almost all jasmine, gardenia, and mineral. The jasmine quality continues strong on the palate with a hint of citrus, poached pear, and green olives. This finishes medium with a smooth buttery texture. Very versatile wine overall; went equally well with arugula salad with seared Ahi as it did with mussels with white wine sauce.

The nose is green apple, Meyer lemon, wet stone, and white pepper. There is tart green apple and lime on the palate. It is light/ medium in body but juicy with ample acidity and a medium finish depending on the pairing.

This wine was brick red in color with medium legs and no visible sediment. It had aromas of red currant, raspberries, cedar, violets, and Herbs de Provence. It likewise had flavors of ripe red fruits, sour cherries, wet stone, mint, and lavender with a long lingering finish. Light and satin-smooth mouthfeel but with ample acidity and light tannins. A very versatile and delicious wine that will only improve with age.
