Winter's Hill Estate Dry Rose Pinot Noir Dundee Hills 2016

Editorial Review by Snooth Editorial:

Light, bright and cheery, this wine has inviting candied cherries and quince paste aromas. In the mouth it's full yet juicy and fresh, with maraschino cherry and strawberry flavors, a splash of tangerine and a touch of lemon acidity to brighten up the palate.

Savory cranberry raspberry aromas are inviting and cool in the glass. This is silky in the mouth and carries a nice firm fruit throughout, showing black cherry and watermelon with a clean ripe finish.

Spicy on the nose with lightly candied suggestions of red cherry and strawberry fruit that show excellent intensity and purity. Nice acids open on the palate, which shows a hint of richness and lovely, pure, and slightly savory flavors of strawberry, forest floor, and a hint of spice. Moderately large scaled and fleshy, this is beautiful with a hint of earthy minerality and some herbal shadings emerging on the moderately long and succulent finish. 90pts

With a fruity, new world nose this is not trying to be something it’s not. There’s just a ton of dark cherry and blue fruit here with vanilla, oreo cookie and sweet, toasty oak backing it up. It’s rich on entry but with great acidity keeping this light and lively. There‘s a fair amount of oak derived spice, vanilla, and cookie tones in the mouth too but the very bright cherry fruit is more than intense enough to never loose one’s attention. The moderately finish is really the wine’s highpoint as the acidity drives the fruit, which is surprisingly fresh, on to a nicely tannic finale. It’s a wine that captures its sweet fruitiness without becoming vulgar. 90pts

The Christmas hampers are very exclusive by nature and are delivered with a reason which makes a lonely soul feel happy. The hampers are thus sent through various online companies who makes the procedure more easy and time consuming. During the time of Christmas people staying in Singapore demand for these items and ultimately people <a href="http://www.singaporehampersonline.com" target="_blank" style="text-decoration:none; font-weight:bold" title=" Send Christmas Hampers to Singapore "> Send Christmas Hampers to Singapore </a>

medium ruby, light to medium body, maybe a tiny bit sweet, with medium to high acidity, medium tannins. strawberry jam, camembert, some other kinda earthy thing. pretty burgundian (and I really don't use that term often). medium intensity and finish.

Fungal, black cherry aromas. Flavors are nicely tart, of cranberries and ripe cherries, refreshing and well balanced, with a bit of cola on the finish.

Funky prunes on the nose, but in the good way. Mopey pruney mouthfeel but with a sharp acidity. Tastes like it's been sitting on the counter a few days. Takes it sweet time on the finish, with lots of acidity and baking spice.
