Nose of lightly spiced apple, lemon flesh, peach and pear. Light floral note.
Adds very ripe pineapple flavor to those listed above. Very fleshy fruit character – reminiscent of a white Chateauneuf (believe it or not). Nice acidity, which kicks in on the finish. Interesting stuff.
$25. 100% Friulano
Open, seductive nose – savory meat, baked earth/potato and citrus/pepper.
Round and mouth-filling, but significant acid-driven tannin immediately frames citrus and earth flavors. Long, lively orange zest and earth finish. RFG and will improve with a few more years in the cellar.
$25 from Rumrunner in Tucson
Opened yesterday – a bit of Brett/earth yesterday has morphed into a sexy hazelnut, cherry liqueur, sausage and spice nose. Also has a wild resinous herb character that reminds me of some wines from the Languedoc.
Perky with strong acidity and flavors of tart cherry and skillet sausage. Lean and bright with acid/tannin synergy puckering the front of the mouth.. Interesting stuff and great with lighter grilled meats.
$25 from FnB in Scottsdale. Think this must be 100% Nerello Mascalese
Nose of lemon flesh and zest, Mandarin orange and grain.
Lively and brighter in the mouth – citrus definitely front and center. Relatively strong acidity buffered nicely by textural sweetness/flesh. Long, vibrant Meyer lemon finish..
