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!

The 2009 Chambolle-Musigny is flashy ripe and seductive. As good as this is there is a slight element of heat that detracts from the wine s overall balance. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016. -Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Lemon gold hue is as dazzling as the nose of Meyer lemon and pulverized sea shell. A generous entry of citrus fruit Crenswhaw melon hints of tarragon and honeycomb envelope the palate. The wine is angular with a dry gravel-like finish (indicative of the soil in which the semillon and sauvignon blanc are grown). Wonderfully balanced the powdery finish keeps you guessing long after your first sip. A grand effort for a selection that could easily go toe-to-toe with many top Pessac-Leognans at double and triple the price. No need to hold this wine in your cellar this Bordeaux Blanc is ready-to-please right now. Perfect with lightly breaded Dover sole or skate pan-fried with a lemon cream sauce. Neil Mechanic.

Deep opaque ruby. Big soft and plush with ripe berry aromas of red cherry blue flowers cassis liqueur and dark chocolate on the nose leads to a quintessential Graves palate of crushed rock and pencil lead minerality. With its rich soft mouthfeel and hints of charcoal and oak on the finish this is definitely approachable now but will get fleshier with a couple of years in the bottle. Drink 2013-2020. Cory Gowan.

Müller Thurgau - 2008/2009 - Livon: Müller Thurgau - 2008/2009 - Weißwein von LivonIn den Weinbergen der Gemeinde San Giovanni al Natisone wachsen die Müller-Thurgau-Trauben auf Alluvialboden. Per Hand gelesen maischen die Trauben für acht Stunden bei kalter Temperatur in der Waagerechtpresse. Danach wird der Most durch Dekantierung abgeklärt. Die Gärung findet in Stahltanks bei einer kontrollierten Temperatur von 15°C statt. Das dadurch erhaltene Produkt bleibt nach der Gärung für etwa 5 Monate in denselben Behältern bei konstanter Temperatur. Schließlich wird der Wein zusammengefügt und in Flaschen abgefüllt, wo die Verfeinerung vollständigt wird.Ein lebendige strohgelbe Farbe schimmert im Glas. Der feine und leichte Duft erinnert an Goldapfel, Birne, Pfirsich und Aprikose. Der Müller Thurgau IGT erfreut mit einem trockenen fruchtigen Geschmack und ist angenehm säuerlich.Weingut: Aziende Agricole LivonLand: ItalienRegion: Friaul Rebsorte: Müller ThurgauInhalt: 0,75 lLagerfähigkeit: 3 bis 4 Jahre ab JahrgangEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 11 - 12°C Suche nach Rebsorten > Weiße Rebsorten > Müller-Thurgau
