  • Tortoise Creek Wines Sauvignon Blanc Cuvee Jeanne Cotes de Gascogne 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Leafy on the nose with some heirloom apple aromas topped with notes of green chile and cut grass. Broad and a touch soft on entry, this is in an easy drinking style that delivers modest peachy flavors on the palate. The finish is modest with a nice mineral twang on the finale. Simple and easy. 80pts Read More

  • Tortoise Creek Wines Sauvignon Blanc Cuvee Jeanne Cotes de Gascogne 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Fresh, grassy and a bit figgy on the bright, citrus nose. Theres a bit of residual CO2 here adding some prickle on entry, but this settles down into a slightly rich style, showing off those figgy tones from the nose along with a steely lemon/lime quality to the fruit. Light and fresh in style with a bit of an earthy edge to the modest finish. 84pts Read More

  • Tortoise Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Vin de Pays d'Oc 2009

    Snoothrank:

    As Carby points out, there was definitely something up with this bottle. On first taste it tasted like either heavy cinnamon or heavy asian spice, or what I imagine the "cinnamon challenge" tastes like...It was also very heavy on black and red cherries. After an hour or two in the decanter it definitely mellowed out. I paired this with a nice ch... Read More
