“Hops ‘r Better” Winer
Wine: 2013 Grenache
Vineyard: Niner Wine Estates
This wine I rated 80 in Quini so you know it has a lot to offer. Intense appearance, with the full-intense aroma of floral. A medium-full-bodied rose with floral and woody flavors. The finish is layered. An overall good-excellent grenache from united states.
“This is the Life” Winer
Intense red with violet hues and great clarity; aromas of red fruits like guava and red berries with floral notes, blackberry, Jamaica, with notes of forest and truffle.
The “Timeless” Winer
I picked up this bottle on a whim while at the local booz-a-teria for no other reason than I like Port. I found it to be an exciting and vibrant wine that lived up to the scent and the always pleasant color. The nose was really complex and I had a hard time putting my finger on the bouquet but, that first taste. MMmm, lovely. The flavors of ripe dark fruit, raisins and a tease of vanilla suddenly cleared right up. There was a long, deep finish that left me wanting another glass (no problem there). I am, without a doubt, a Port man. Given the opportunity, it is the glass of choice for me at the end of a long day when there is time to contemplate the meaning of …whatever needs to be contemplated before bed. A good bet that ‘the Sandman’ is going to remain at my elbow.
The “Hippy” Winer
I was at a wine conference when this wine and I met. I was struck by its intense ruby red color. The scent of wildflowers mingled easily with the aroma of dark fruits. The taste of blackberries, coffee and chocolate were wonderful and there was a great balance of acidity and tannins. I can’t wait for our wine trail to South America where I have already laid plans for a lengthy visit with Kaiken.
