Tablas Creek Red Rhone Blend Paso Robles Côtes de Tablas 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The Tablas Creek Vineyard Côtes de Tablas is a blend of four estate-grown Rhône varietals: Grenache, Syrah, Counoise and Mourvèdre. Like most wines of the Southern Rhône, it is a blend of varietals, featuring the fruit and spice of Grenache balanced by the spice and mineral of Syrah, the appealing briary wildness of Counoise, and the structure of Mourvèdre. The 2009 Côtes de Tablas shows a rich, minty nose with dark chocolate, cherry, leather, licorice and crushed rock. The mouth explodes with dark cherry, with nice chalky Grenache tannins giving firmness. The very long finish lingers with flavors of licorice, spice and cherry liqueur. Our most concentrated Cotes de Tablas ever; it should drink well young but also cellar happily for a decade. Food Pairings: Grilled steaks, pastas with meat sauces, rich beef stews, spicy sausages.

The White vine Terras de Lantaño smells fresh and with a little taste of strawberries..... A really "superb· vine, but cheap.

£14.22 2011 http://www.montalbera.it/eng/ruche.php Società Agricola Montalbera S.r.l. - via Montalbera, 1 - 14030 Castagnole Monferrato (At) ITALY - montalbera@montalbera.it £14.22 2011 Quite light. Not very serious since it starts out being very fruity. But then it moves on to give that classic Piedmont depth; this is true especially after its left open for a while/day. Overall its too (in a strange way) fruity for me. Perhaps the 2 rating is a bit harsh but not by much; I think I can find much better.

This wine was made under the supervision of Harald Junglen of Weingut Ackermann. He has been making Riesling in the middle Mosel for years, and Weingut Ackermann is a family-owned winery for many generations. With Harald's guidance and expertise, wine maker Barnaby Tuttle was able to capture the true style and essence of a German Riesling. Even though the fruit was grown in clay, and not slate- this Riesling has that petrol quality on the nose and lively tart zing with the right amount of residual sugar to balance it out. This '09 Riesling was listed as NW Palate's Magazine top wines for 2010.

Very Pale green color, kabinet-ish smell and mouthfeel. Kaffir Lime, Asian Pear, and even some rockiness and wet pavement in the finish... How can this be new world Riesling? Its too good!

One may debate the origins of ruche, a grape not originally native to Italy, but one cannot debate that this is its most regal interpretation. Hailing from stony limestone solis, from the center of Monferrato, ruché’s home base, presenting a floral nose lush with rose petals and violets. Over thime this evolved into exotic wood spices, pink peppercorns. Comforting mouthfeel, balanced acidity and crushed velvet tannins make this an ideal pairing with young cheese, cured meats and arancini.

Dornfelder Qualitätswein trocken 2009 - Markus Pfaffmann : Dornfelder Qualitätswein trocken 2009 - Rotwein von Markus Pfaffmann Die Farbe gibt die Richtung an. Dieser Rotwein zeigt eine sehr würzige Nase nach reifen dunklen Früchten und etwas Tabak. Der dichte und kompakte Saft, die würzige Frucht, Spuren Waldbeeren, dunklen Kirschen und reifen Pfaumen dominieren im Mund mit etwas Tabak. Der Dornfelder von Pfaffmann zeigt eine kaum spürbare Süße, aber eine reife Säure und eine tolle Balance. Die fruchtige Safigkeit bleibt auch im Abgang.Daten von Dornfelder Qualitätswein trocken 2009 - Markus Pfaffmann Weingut: Markus PfaffmannLand: DeutschlandRegion: PfalzRebsorte: DornfelderInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,00 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 5,50 g/lRestsüße: 5,40 g/l Pfalz

This is a big, full flavoured Shiraz produced from 40 year old vines, grown on the Adelaide Plains. Well balanced and textured, this wine shows savoury and chocolate notes with soft tannins and a structured palate. - Winery
