Treveri Cellars Germanic

Aaron:  Treveri is great and this is no exception.  This is not a sweet sparkling but it’s delicious.  The nose is a little grassy followed by an oaky flavor.  Overall, very mild and easy drinking with more granite than fruit flavors.  This tastes great.  91 points

Teri: Light nutty smell (almond and cashew) and overall not too dry and not too sweet. I tasted flavors of apricot and cherry blossoms. This one gets better as you drink it and taste additional flavors. This sparkling would pair well with spicy foods or to serve with dessert. 91 points

La Marquise Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Purchased from Lot 18/The Tasting Room IMG_0961 2.jpg

Aaron: There are a decent amount of minerals throughout this bottle.  White bark and light olives smothered cantaloupe on the nose.  The flavor is super dry and slightly tangy.  This is not fruity at all and almost bitter.  Definitely not my favorite and reminds me of sour pineapple.  85 points

Teri: Light lemon and melon nose and citrus flavors in the wine with mellow acidity. Mineral and honey add some additional complexity. It had good long flavor and is still light and crisp. Enjoyable.  90 points. 

Kiona Vineyards Red Mountain Gewurztraminer 2014

Aaron:  Great bottle that is wonderfully full for a white wine.  Peachy, sunflower nose with rich, sweet flavor and lots of white grape.  My favorite flavor: bourbon vanilla!  Alcohol was definitely prominent throughout, and this was a bit sharp on the edges but the fullness and flavor make up for it.  90 points

Teri: With a beautiful smell of peach, this Gewurztraminer is a winner from smell to swallow. Ample different flavors fill your mouth: fresh cantaloupe, banana with caramel and floral undertones. There is a long lingering finish but still a light body leaving a smooth mouthfeel after swallowing. Complex and delicious. 92 points 

Sebo Mendoza Torrontes 2016

IMG_0744.jpgLot 18/The Tasting Room, $16/bottle


Aaron:  This has a crisp citrus smell with lots of orange blossoms and violets.  There was a hint of sweetness with crisp almond butter (though the flavor is not buttery).  This was a bit sharp and metallic and would be amazing on a hot day.  90 points

Teri: Lemon and stone fruits with some (What I think was nectarine) on the nose. Light flavor overall but refreshing. The flavor profile was a blend of nut and fruit. I tasted citrus and kiwi up front with nutty (cashew) floral flavors on the finish. 88 points

Info on Wine Searcher


Aaron: This is a solid brut.  Traditionally sharp and dry as you would expect, the nose is a non-factor.  I noticed pine on the flavor and not a lot of apple or pear like other sparkling wines.  89 points

Teri: Light nose, just a hint of lemon curd. Very crisp, dry and leaves you with a nice clean mouthfeel. Some grapefruit and lemon on the taste. Pleasent flavors and easy to drink. 89 points
