  • Catoctin Creek Winery Merlot Rose 2013

    Snoothrank:

    The Kool Aid-esque hot pink color is off putting. Not much to the nose - can detect a very faint hint of strawberry, but more in the way of nail polish remover. Rich syrupy mouthfeel, but not sweet. Finishes hot. Yuck! Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Sweet, floral, and very fruity nose with prominent pear and lemon. Soft, round mouthfeel with a lightly prickling acidity developing mid-palate. Zesty, extra dry finish. Nice minerality too. Surprising. Read More

  • North Gate Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Rather light in color - a clear garnet red. Rich red fruit on nose with a hint of cocoa. Nice peppery finish. Feels lean - lots of fruit and acid, less tannin. Very mellow red. Read More
