  • Tortoise Creek Merlot the Revivalist 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Dark earth and stony tar notes of thick blackberry on the nose. This turns quite sharply towards red fruit in the mouth, with thick tannins filling in the sides of the palate thats full of black cherry and raspberry and an herbal note of eucalyptus on the finish. Read More

  • Tortoise Creek Chardonnay Jam's Blend 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Nectarine and elderflower aromas are inviting and have a hint of spice to them. Juicy and fresh in the mouth, with peach and melon notes, some toast and burnt caramel in the midpalate, some vanilla towards the finish where it turns towards a bright and fresh palate decked with peach and a refreshing minerality.

  • Tortoise Creek the Chelonian Zinfandel 2012

    Snoothrank:

    I like it, but it did not taste like a zin. but more like a cab. Expecting more of a fruit bomb. If it was decanted, it would have been assumed to be a cab or merlot. Read More

  • Tortoise Creek Pinot Noir "Mission Grove" 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Tart and bright on the nose with some powdered sugar and light oak notes sitting on top of the red berry fruit. Medium bodied and fresh in the mouth, with floral characteristics and some dried cherries showing on the attack, and vanilla coming in on the finish. Throughout there's a tart cranberry freshness and a medicinal note of well-integrated... Read More

  • Tortoise Creek le Charmel Costieres de Nimes 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Inviting smoky aromas have a red fruit character of cherry and some plum and blackberry with a floral framing that keeps the whole nose quite light. In the mouth it's juicy and earthy in the same breath, with more cherry and blackberry fruit, excellent balance and acidity, well integrated oak and good spice. Still quite youthful and vibrant, an ... Read More

  • 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
