This week’s wines included:
Tavernello Pinot Grigio – This is an Italian Pinot Grigio that was very crisp and not too dry. It was described as having “beautiful apple and sweet pear aromas on the nose and a velvety, perfectly balanced texture.”
RVTZ Chardonnay – A delicious Chardonnay with a lot of citrus flavor and a very smooth texture. It was also not too oaky or dry. The website describes it as “ripe tangerine citrus and honey”. It would be a great summer time wine.
Dobbes Pinot Noir – I really liked this Pinot Noir, it has a lot of dark fruit flavors and was very balanced.
Paco Red Experience – “Superb blend, very fruit forward with red berries and Asian spices.” I thought this was a pretty good red blend. It had a lot of fresh fruity flavor and wasn’t too bold.
Villa San Juliette Cabernet Sauvignon – I liked this one the most. It was deep and full of flavor. The website says “the tannins are soft and supple” and I would have to agree. It had just enough flavor for me, but wasn’t overpowering. “The wine highlights the flavors of cherry, clove, raspberry, and vanilla.” *A little fun note about this wine, one of the creators of this wine was a collaborator in the creation of Pop Idol (Britain’s version of American Idol) and the other is an executive producer on American Idol. They are childhood best friends.*
All in all, these were good wines, but there wasn’t anything that blew me away.
