2009 POGGIOTONDO BIANCO IGT
Alberto Antonini’s Family Vineyards in Tuscany, Italy
- This wine displays the true potential of 3 native Tuscan white wine grapes: Vermentino for freshness and elegance; Trebbiano for structure, and Malvasia for intense aromatics in a fresh un-oaked Italian white.
2009 ARTAZURI GARNACHA
Aromas of strawberry and raspberry complicated by notes of rose, cinnamon and white pepper
The palate exudes silky, sweet red berry flavors and suave notes of candied flowers and Asian spices.
2008 OLIVERHILL RED SILK SHIRAZ
91 POINTS WINE ADVOCATE
McLaren Vale, Australia
- “The 2008 Red Silk Shiraz is opaque purple/black with a bouquet of cedar, damp earth, lavender, incense, black raspberry, and blueberry preserves, Rich, concentrated and layered on the palate, it is loaded with sweet, savory black fruit, spices, and chocolate. Smooth-textured and lengthy, it will drink well for a decade.”
2007 TEANA RED BLEND 2007
- “The 2007 Treana Red (a blend of 70% Syrah and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon) is a solidly constructed, attractive, dark ruby/purple-colored, medium to full-bodied wine with lots of loamy, dusty, earthy notes intermixed with red and black fruit, new saddle leather, and background oak characteristics. It is a well-structured red that is not likely to improve, so consume it over the next 3-4 years. -Robert Parker ”August 2010
