  • Tortoise Creek Le Charmel Costieres de Nimes 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A bit peppery on the nose and while oddly jammy this comes off as slightly under-ripe aromatically with aromas of leather and herb laying over the spicy currant base notes. Smooth and soft in the mouth, this really floats across the palate with that same slightly under-ripe quality found on the nose. I happen to like this more savory side of Syr... Read More

  • Tortoise Creek Chardonnay Jam's Blend 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Picked up this Lodi Chardonnay on a whim and was pleasantly surprised. Plenty of stone fruit with a touch of green apple and maybe a hint of honey that added a little bit of nice weight on the back end. Excellent QPR! Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Definitely showing cedary oak on the nose but theres also some nice soil, floral, and dried herb tones here adding a bit of detail to the small blackberry fruit. This is bright and juicy on entry, really nicely balanced with small tannins supporting attractive blueberry and blackberry fruit. Theres a little floral note in the mouth along with a ... Read More

  • Tortoise Creek Pinot Noir les Oliviers 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Oddly candied and herbal on the nose with sweet strawberry fruit paired with cinnamon red hot candies and bitter beet root and minty green accents. Low acid making this a bit round and plump in the mouth, though of modest scale with simple earthy plummy fruit and just a hint of the spicy cinnamon found on the nose. Smooth and very easy to drink ... Read More
