Cynthia Lohr- This pretty, delicate rosé is also complex and powerful, with plum and blood orange notes with a hint of hibiscus and a surprise, tart cotton candy finish. I would have fun enjoying this wine with a Croques Monsieur, and still feel every bit the French Madame. — 3 years ago
Jeff Meier- Merlot can be hit and miss at times, but I was pleasantly surprised by this tasty offering from Girard. The raspberry and blueberry fruit with coffee-like varietal freshness was supported by good palate weight and density. The flavors were fresh and varietally correct. — 3 years ago
Kristen Barnhisel- Old World classic Burgundy, wet stone and white floral aromas with apples, lemon, racy acid, and long lemon meringue finish. — 3 years ago
Kristen Barnhisel- Toasted oak and crème brulee highlight the aromatics, with a hint of tropical fruit, moderate texture, and peaches and baking spice finish. — 3 years ago
Cynthia Lohr- I’m a huge fan of most rose of Pinot Noir, and this one is delicious. With strawberry and grapefruit aromas and flavors, the brightness on the palate is balanced by a cool watermelon. Seaside sipping is a must. — 3 years ago
Cynthia Lohr- From the Loire Valley’s characteristic Cabernet Franc-drive rosés, this unique wine is unlike any in its category. With meat, heft and minerality, and bell pepper and green olive spice, this dry wine is a perfect accompaniment to Bouillabaisse. — 3 years ago
Jeff Meier- I really love the wines from this producer. Focused on Burgundy varietals, Walter Hansel has a restrained touch on Pinot Noir. Sour cherry, vanilla and strawberry preserve aromas with a silky smooth palate that balances all of the goodness of Pinot Noir. — 3 years ago
