Francescano Natura Assisi Peach Cream Liqueur
Brilliant, crystal clear. The nose is amazingly generous with ripe peaches and a touch of apricot nesting on a stone fruit custard. The palate echoes the nose delivering a very lush, peach and custard core that offers subtle peach skin notes as well to add interest with accents of citrus rising on the finish. Medium-bodied with incredible viscosity coating every corner of your mouth. $21.99 – 3.5 Stars
Red Hills Cellars Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2016
Brilliant, deep ruby color. The aromatics are very intense offering scents of red cherry and five spice with supporting notes of red currant, raspberry, mocha, and hibiscus flower. The palate confirms the nose delivering a red fruit-driven core with flavors of boysenberry, plum, and leather with hints of pomegranate. The finish is long and lingering with ripe tannins. Medium to full-bodied and nicely balanced with a supple texture. $55 4 Stars/93 points
Tablas Creek Patelin de Tablas Paso Robles 2017
Brilliant, deep ruby color. The aromatics are very intense offering scents of blackberry and black tea with supporting notes of five spice, forest floor, mineral, and dried herbs. The palate echoes the nose delivering a black fruit-driven core with flavors of black currant, plum, and star anise. The finish is long and lingering with ripe tannins. Medium to full-bodied and nicely balanced with a supple texture. $25 4 Stars/91 points
