  • Willow Crest Muscat Canelli Yakima Valley 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Showing floral and fruit on the nose with juicy bright peach, candied apple and honey aromas. This is still brightly acidic, though expect newer vintages to have more buoyancy. Still this is effervescent and off-dry today, with notes of fresh red apple, peach and dried apricot, and a touch of phenolics towards the finish. Read More

  • Handley Cellars Pinot Blanc Mendocino 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Very enjoyable pinot blanc from Mendocino. There's a bit of a creamy taste and texture that makes this stand out from most other pinot blancs that I've had. Plenty of lemon pith, a bit of white grapefruit, with a hint of honeysuckle. There's a nice bit of medium acidity and a medium finish. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Did a quick do it yourself wine flight tasting at my favorite bar...not known for its wines. Served much too warm. Loads of mixed fruit and far too sweet to have on its own without food. Bottle may have been flawed for there was a bitter and metallic aftertaste. Read More
