Vivino Info


Aaron:  This was tasty.  White pineapples and grapes with light green leaves.  There’s a slight butter and citrus flavor, which is generally appealing and flowery.  Pretty good.  90 points

Teri: Kiona’s Zeus – Version 2 – Is a verticle blend (multiple years together) which is why they put version numbers instead of a year on the bottle. The white blend has creamy flavors and good body. I taste Bartlet pear, peach, and pine nuts along with pineapple on the finish. Very easy to drink but rich and full. 90 points

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
