Médaillon Sauvignon Blanc

The wine has a grassy note, but it's not the high grassy note of New Zealand. It's not the grassiness you smell when you have just cut the grass. There is more of an herbal edge to it, like the smell you get when you are pulling up weeds. Does that clarify for you? Good. I think my palate is coming unhitched from my brain. What I think I'm getting at is, there's an earthy sense to the grassiness here. On the palate the tropical fruit is definitely shaded by earth. It gives a wonderful display of pineapple, citrus and apples with just the right amount of earthiness. This wine, like the White Blend, is a great one for someone who thinks Sauvignon Blanc is too grassy. — 7 years ago

Médaillon Cabernet Sauvignon Blend

strong scent of an old pine forest. Finish with a typical Mediterranean scent of burnt cigar. Less fruity than some French/Italian young reds but still easy to drink and doesn't lack the complexity like all young wineries do. — 6 years ago

Moroccan Cabernet Sauvignon Grenache

This blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Grenache grapes feels to me more like Grenache than Cab. Aging took ten months in oak barrels and the 13% abv alcohol number is very restrained.
Dark and brooding are the aromas here, with blackberry and cassis trying their best to smother the notes of black pepper and earth. Oak spice is there, but not burdensome. The palate of this inky wine shows blackberry and plum, with the earthy, mineral-driven flavors coming on a bit stronger than on the nose. There is a rustic, dusty sagebrush feel to it, and the acidity is the only thing that’s bright about this wine. Tannic structure is good.
