G’Vine Floraison Gin
Brilliant, crystal clear. The aromatics are very floral with a hint of citrus and a Genever-like sweetness with hints of fenugreek, green cardamon, and gooseberry. The palate echoes the nose delivering a sweet, fruit driven core with green spices, lime zest, and ginger. This is a soft and gentle Gin that may be too soft and gentle for some hardcore Gin lovers. It is undeniably balanced with great length and depth. $35.99 – 3 Stars
Cecchetto Raboso Piave 2015
Brilliant, deep ruby color. The aromatics are very intense offering scents of black cherry and blackberry with supporting notes of black tea, violet, leather, and subtle hints of vanilla. The palate echoes the nose delivering a black fruit-driven core with flavors of black fruits and tart cherry. The finish is long and lingering with supple tannins. Medium to full-bodied and perfectly balanced with a rich but vibrant texture. $19 4.5 Stars/94 points
Wakefield St. Andrews Cabernet Sauvignon Clare Valley 2016
Brilliant, deep ruby/purple color. The aromatics are very intense offering scents of black currant and cocoa with supporting notes of dried herbs, cassis, and subtle oak notes. The palate confirms the nose delivering a black fruit-driven core with flavors of plum, wild mint, and baking spices. The finish is long and lingering with supple tannins and accents of cigar boxes on the finish. Full-bodied and nicely balanced with a opulent texture. $70 4 Stars/91 points
Wakefield St. Andrews Riesling Clare Valley 2018
Brilliant, light gold/green color. The nose is moderately intense offering scents of lemon and acacia flowers with supporting notes of green tea, grapefruit, and slate.
