Great Value 5 glasses
Mourvedre, Grenache. Mineral and raspberry aromas to this dark wine. Frais de bois and raspberry flavors. Very nice, rich mouthfeel and a concentration of flavors in the midpalate. Chalky, stony finish.
Great perfume, with wonderful fruit and stoniness underneath. Great acidity, too. Honey, apples, melon. Wonderful food wine.
Melon, white flowers, and mandarin peel aromas and flavors. Nice body.
Very attractive dark crimson color. Aromas of dark red fruit, coffee, spice, and earth. Coffee and tobacco were present on the palate, but there was also the taste of red cherry, blackberry, red pepper, and vanilla. The wine is full and smooth in the mouth. The finish is long and satisfying.
For the price I paid (5Euro) this was a decent purchase. Obviously not as complex as other Priorats, but with nine months in barrel this wine has some quality. Decent structure, nice earthiness and some dried fruit components.
Amazing nose on this wine. Big and floral with hints of ripe tropical fruit. Fairly round and rich on the palate. Very interesting wine.
External Reviews for Sumac Ridge Gewürztraminer Private Reserve
Rating: 89/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Mixing blackberry fruit tones with light sniffs of old leather and the tightness of youth, this wine still gets it spot on in its aromas and delivers well in the mouth. It is supple to start in palatefeel, then progress to a firm, tannin-supported spine that demands a fair bit of patience in order for the wine to come out of its rough stance. With depth to spare and focus that is true-to-type, this Zin can be put away with confidence.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.
2007 - Zind-Humbrecht gewurztraminer Rangen de T. Clos-Saint-Urbain GC 3 - Frankreich - Region: Alsace - Apellation: Alsace - Gewurztraminer - 750 ml.
The inky/purple-colored 2007 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Rasteau Vieilles Vignes (100% Grenache from the blue clay sectors of Rasteau) is a dense, masculine effort offering oodles of fruit, high glycerin, and unbridled power. Forget this blockbuster for 2–3 years, and drink it over the following 15+.
Wine Tasting NotesIt is brilliant white gold colored with green highlights. Its white flower aromas such as orange blossom and rose combine harmoniously with its intense fruity notes of pear, mango and passion fruit. It is fruity and sensual, with an excellent acidity expressed in an outstanding freshness. With great aromatic and taste persistence, characteristic of this variety.
Creamy but with good drive as Jonagold apple Cavaillon melon creamed peach and sweetened butter notes are backed by a hint of macadamia nut. The long alluring finish lets it all hang together nicely. Drink now through 2012. -JM Wine Spectator.
This beautiful dry white wine is driven by floral fruits and spicy pear flavors. Unoaked and lightly mineral-driven on the finish, this is a fine choice if you're having seafood tonight. Made in the Terras do Sado region, just south of Lisbon in southern Portugal, this is a blend of indigenous white grapes and a little bit of Chardonnay.
You can't go wrong with the German wines from the Wirsching estate. This is truly a bottle that will make you drool with happiness.
