Bodegas Ordonez Triton Tinto de Toro 2011 Wine Review (NW)

    Tasting notes: Bouquet that's bold with dark berries and cocoa Full bodied on the palate Juicy dark berry finish, slightly tannic, with coffee and spice Summary: This is a lot of wine for $14-a value Tinto de Toro for sure.

    Truchard Zinfandel Carneros (NAPA) 2010 wine review by (PB)

    Black cherry hue with Blackberry aroma and a nice touch of sage, and a gentle touch of mint on the edge. Palate--This is a bold Zin with a sturdy foundation to carry the big rustic blackberry flavors with a smokey finish. I paid $15 for this on a "super buy" from an out of state store ...

    Snoqualmie Riesling Winemaker's Select 2012 wine review by (PB)

    Pale gold hue with nice aromas of tropical fruits with an "oily" note that I find typical of many Rieslings and Gruners with vanilla cream and a touch of wood. Palate--Zippy acidic foundation, off dry and fruit filled with lite stone fruit and tropical fruit salad. Even liners a bit ...

    Terra D'Alige Tatone MontePulciano D' Bruzzo 2010 wine review by (PB)

    Nice black cherry hue with some heft to the pigmentation. Aromas of a deep, intense melange of spices, deep licorice and fruit with forest floor and more evergreen--WOW! Palate--supple tannins with delicious dark berries, rich textured with a finish that is tart and mouth watering. Montepulciano is one of my favorite every day kind of wines ...

    Chakalaka "Spice Route" 2010 wine review by (PB)

    Deeply pigmented opaque black cherry hue with aromas of deep blackberry, tar, spices and dark fruit. Palate--Weighty presentation with loads of luxuriant dark fruit and a prominent charred wood presence. Finishes with more charred wood. Seems to have simplified from what it was about 20 hours ago when I opened it. This is a blend of 6 different grapes.

    Thomas Goss Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 McLaren Vale wine review by (PB)

    Young purple hue with aromas of fresh dark berry fruit away from the glass changing to spicy dark berry with cedar notes and green overtones and some tarry hints. Palate--Hefty on the palate--big, somewhat harsh with solid fruit, a nice beam of black cherry/berry with a lingering finish and smokey wood to end. An immature wine that is going to some time to come around ...
