If you don’t know Wrath, you should. Across the street from SLH are their estate vineyards with unmatched QPR. Rich and tropical on the nose with loads of peach, buttery oak and citrus. The palate is perfectly balanced. Warm and toasty upon entry with rich stone fruits, the wine quickly reveals bright acidity and stony minerality. The long finish reveals and pleasant bitterness and a kiss of oak. Just lovely! — 4 months ago
A GS blend and aptly-named. Big and bold with huge red fruit, cherry, strawberry, raspberry, and cranberry. Anise, oak, menthol, and leather as well. Moderate plus tannins, high alcohol, and high acid. Too hot to drink without big, spicy protein. Would match well with bbq pork ribs. — 7 months ago
I was in the mood for Sauvignon Blanc that had more to say for itself than “hi, I’m Sauvignon Blanc” to which I’d theoretically reply “do I LOOK like a Basic B? Huh? Whatcha gonna say about THAT Savvy B?” Kidding, I’d never do that but if I were the type to be so insulting this wine would not bear the brunt of my wrath because it is more than SB spiritually and literally (there’s 8% Sauvignon Gris in the mix). It is understated. Sort of hinting first at greens, then grapefruit and lemons. On the palate it is quite elegant, bringing in honeysuckle and zip. It does a graceful dance over your tongue, a petite allegro but slightly slowed down, not too fast too follow if you happen to be it’s dance partner.
If you like your SB to slap you around and make you say it’s name this may not be your jam, but if you want a little intrigue, this one’s for you. — 3 months ago
