I'm a little torn on this wine. The 2007 blend is actually 65 syrah-35 grenache. It's everything you think it might be: lush and velvety texture with red cherries and black fruit, finished with a slightly peppery minerality. My issue with the wine is that it did not stand up to a red wine braised short rib. It fell really, really flat against it. It was a good wine before and after our actual meal, however.
It was okay. The fruit profile was somewhat subdued, and I didn't pick up any minerality or lasting finishing as the description suggests. We drank this with herb-laced pork, tomato and fennel sauce and zucchini sauce - so nothing too crazy on the palate. The wine has an intense straw color, but the acidity is a little too much. There are much better chards out there than this, especially for the price.
A very nice wine that goes with a lot of different food, especially during a warm summer. Perfect match with white meat or seafood and pasta. It can even stand up to a red sauce as long as it's not too rich. The wine itself has this remarkable profile of cream balanced with minerality and an earthy-woodsy palate.
I absolutely loved the youth in this wine. It has typical characteristics of dark fruit balanced with bright red fruit, with a highly enjoyable silky texture on the palate. It's a great wine with if you appreciate the lighter style of gamay and beaujolais.
This is a nice wine but not a great wine. Perfect for a light chicken or pork dinner during a warm summer. Nice flavors not normally associated with sauvignon blanc such as figs and melon with a light-to-medium body texture and floral notes.
Oh. My. Gahd. This is fantastic wine! Deep, layered, complexity gives way to dark fruits that tantalize the mouth and tongue. I drank this with herb roasted rib eye, and it was a match made in heaven. Finishes bold and elegant. Do not pass up this wine!!!
Light & Crisp
I love a good chenin blanc during the warm summer months, and I usually go from the ones from South Africa because of the soil. Every chenin blanc I've had from South Africa has been on the drier side, which is a plus. It's light, it's crisp, pairs well with a lot of lighter foods and even a tomato fennel sauce. This wine is also nice because of its concentrated nature on the palate. It's not a fruit bomb and doesn't just drop off the palate without warning.
