“Hops ‘r Better” Winer
Wine: 2011 Cabernet Franc
Vineyard: Danza Del Sol Winery
It’s not often I rate wines over 90 in Quini, but’s here’s a 93 wine! Intense appearance, with intense aromas. A full-bodied red. The finish is complex. An overall excellent cabernet franc from the USA.
“This is the Life” Winer
Now here’s a beauty. Lovely bright purple color with hints of darkness (Hmm.). The flavors are of dark berries, cherry coupled with a touch of smokiness on the nose and in the mouth. The red fruit and smoke qualities carry through to a sweet, gently tannic finish.
The “Timeless” Winer
Not a fan of sweet red wine, I have to tell you right off the bat. I decided to try this because, well I don’t know. It was a pleasant surprise to discover that while sweet it was not the nasty, cloying sweetness I was expecting. We had it with some wicked hot Thai food and it matched up almost perfectly. I’d have it again but I’m still a dry red kind of guy though apparently I can be led astray.
The “Hippy” Winer
A very nice deep and dark, almost a red plum color. The scent was refreshing and smacked of wildflowers, smoke and a general earthiness that I loved. I am all about organic wines and this one has definitely earned a place at my table.
