Added May 17, 2010 at 2:49pmThere's all manner of barnyard and orchard aromas, from wet wool and hard rind cheese to dry straw and horse apples. Thick, woodsy fruit on the palate, nice structure with surprising acidity and super-soft tannins.

Added May 17, 2010 at 2:45pmRich, juicy prune from top to bottom, good acidity throughout. Tosses off this powerful anise-and-cinnamon note at the end.

Added May 17, 2010 at 2:41pmFirst up, the aromas of wet slate, bell pepper, dry grass; juicy and round in the mouth, with big citrus, a touch of jalapeno, and a dusting of KoolAid powder on the finish.

Added May 17, 2010 at 2:37pmA Pinot Grigio wearing Chardonnay drag. It's weird. There's mango and lemon and butter up front. I assumed it was a ruse, a bait & switch to something more reserved in the mouth. But it just gets fruitier, creamier, even more specific: mandarin oranges, grapefruit, sun-baked blades of St. Augustine.

Added May 17, 2010 at 2:30pmA tropical nose, a touch honied; in the mouth, it's steely & bright, with green apple, almond, and florals at the very end.

Tapena Garnacha 2008
Added May 11, 2010 at 7:22pmWoodsy black cherries and a bit of exhaust on the nose, a suggestion of orange oil. Smokier fruit in the mouth, a bit of mashed strawberry before the soft tannins show up. Rough around the edges.

Added May 10, 2010 at 6:56pmVery pretty, loaded with lime and green apple, the oak is there, but it knocks politely before letting itself in. Nicely balanced acidity.

Added May 9, 2010 at 8:37pmWet wool, cola, and the early-morning smell of freshly-planted crops: earth, sunshine, the minerality of fertilizer. On the palate, it's surprisingly refreshing, with a sexy sweetness that slips in and out of the pretty, tasty fruit.

Lynmar Pinot Noir 2006Compare and Buy
Average Price: $22.39
Added May 9, 2010 at 8:35pmRich cherries on the nose; very inviting, mouthwateringly juicy strawberry notes on the palate, underlined by something darker, something further into the woods. A bit of Luden's on the finish.
