Le Ruse Renard Cotes de Gascogne 2015

Lot 18, $14.99


Aaron: Oaky green apple on the nose.  The flavor is tangy but dissipates quickly.  Lots of lemongrass and weeds with some interesting sunflower but too tart for me.  87 points

Teri: This white wine has a citrus nose with a light and crisp body. I tasted flavors of white peach and Pez (like the candy). Medium body and a short (but flavorful) finish. Slightly watery but easy to drink. 87 points

BevMo, $9.99

Total Wine & More, $7.47


Aaron:  This was an enjoyable wine with lemon-coated almonds and a white peach nose. Pretty full for it’s light hue with a hint of near-sparkle.  Lots of green pears on the palate gave way to a touch of brown sugar making this appealing and easy to drink.  91 points

Teri: The sweet peach and pear nose is followed by tight fruit flavors on the first sip. It took me a while to piece out a few: fuji apple, almond, butter, and other stone fruits. The wine is very flavorful and easy to drink. Great for gift giving and easy to pair with a variaty of foods. 91 points 

Airfield Estates Lightning 2013

Airfield Estates Lightning Purchased from Airfield tasting room, $18

Available on Amazon


Aaron: VERY buttery smell but not overpowering.  There was tons of cream on this white blend with almond and olive oil breaking through as well.  I felt this was extremely enjoyable, full, and rich.  92 points

Teri: If you love buttery chardonnays you will want to try this. The white blend starts with a creamy vanilla smell that blends into a whipped cream and buttery mouthful of vanilla bean, honeydew, and almond. Still on the dry side, this wine is packed with scrumptious flavors within a pleasant medium to light body and smooth tannins. 90 points

Aaron: The grapefruit, rocky, and mushroom nose was filled with sand and had a pretty full body.  This was very creamy and loaded with vanilla.  There was a noticeable tingle, similar to pop rocks, but I really liked it, particularly because it’s big for a white.  90 points

Teri: This is a beautiful blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, and Semillon. With a woody nose and a smooth mouthfeel, I enjoyed this wine among others when spending time at their tasting room in Woodinville, WA. This wine is easy drinking but still full of flavor: tropical fruits (pineapple, mango, passion fruit) and soft vanilla. Great for new and seasoned wine drinkers alike. 90 points

Aaron: The leafy nose of this white was kind of dull but accompanied by tons of lemony citrus.  This wanted to be buttery but wasn’t, more of an almond flavor with mostly tart citrus.  The flavor was light but tangy, making it a bit overwhelming in a negative way.  86 points

Teri: This Italian white has flavors of passion fruit, herbal rose pedals and lemongrass with some vanilla on the finish. In total, it is a bit too citrus tasting for my personal preference but still easy to drink. If enjoying this bottle, I say it would be better to pair with food–preferably seafood. 87 points
