Light cherry fruit on the nose, the wine is simple, plain and has a fake, saccharine, flavor. Great for a sangria mix.

Il Vitigno "Kerner" è stato creato nel 1929 in Germania da August Herold incrociando Schiava Grossa e Riesling. Il nome Kerner deriva da Justinus Kerner, medico e poeta tedesco. Profumi Profumo inteso, spesso con un tono di moscato; aromi freschi offrono un gustoso mix di frutta mista bianca, con note di mela, pompelmo e un soffio tropicale di mango. Gusto Simile al Riesling, fresco e fruttato, di minor acidità ma con più corpo.

For the price, this one was surprising! A softer zinfandel than maybe is the norm but that was right up my alley. As soon as I finished this bottle, I wished I had had another to open. It was fruit forward in both aroma and the first taste, from them it opened into spice and soft oak and tannins. Just made you want to take another sip!

It tastes like concentrated grape juice, with a lot of water. Very sweet. I wouldn't recommend it.

Very tasty. I think this included some merlot and/or syrah grapes in it...Quite tasty, with flavors of peaches and a short, sweet finish redolent of flowers.

Wine Tasting NotesThis soft, fruity red possesses the cherrylike fruitiness and smooth texture characteristic of the Merlot variety. It should appeal especially to nonalcoholic wine drinkers seeking the health benefits of red wine along with the sophistication of a world-class varietal.

Bright red. Red berries and cherry on the nose, with sexy incense and floral nuances adding complexity. Juicy red fruit flavors are underscored by smoke and floral pastilles, picking up a hint of licorice with air. Leaves sweet raspberry and cherry notes behind on the focused, gently sweet finish. This is drinking well now. Smooth in texture, this transparent wine has a lively feel to its blackberry and tar aromas and flavors, lingering on the savory finish. Drink now through 2011. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 5,105 cases made. -HS The Cumberland Reserve cuvee is the only blend that Bergstrom produces. The 2007 Cumberland Reserve was sourced from 15 vineyards and, according to Bergstrom, is "my style, my take on the vintage." Medium ruby-colored, it reveals a perfume of toasty black fruits, earth notes, and spice box. Elegant and restrained on the palate, mineral, floral, and cinnamon notes emerge leading to a silky, fruit-filled finish. Drink this friendly effort over the next 8 years.

Fresh, ripe strawberry and an alkaline note rise from the glass of Christoffel's 2007 Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Kabinett. This shows less pure pizzazz than the corresponding Treppchen, but here saline, alkaline, and stony nuances enter into a shimmering interchange with the fruit and the finish floats away slowly and delicately, with well-judged, barely noticeable sweetness.

Tasting Notes:

The grapes for this Zinfandel come from Amador County, which is one of California’s most recognized and prestigious Zinfandel growing regions. Sutter Home’s first wines, produced in the late 1940s, were made from Amador Zinfandel grapes and the winery continues these traditions today. Amador County’s warm days and cool nights produce the finest Zinfandel, rich with smooth fruit-forward characteristics.
