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

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
