Not an ice wine in its true sense as the grapes were not harvested frozen on the vines.
It lacks the nutty and molasses notes I often associate with ice wine, in particular from Canada, and certainly not as rich. Still very enjoyable with lovely tropical fruits and floral notes. Viscous yet refreshing.
100% Scheurebe, which is a crossing of Riesling and Bukettraube, and was created by German viticulturalist Georg Scheu - hence the name Scheurebe (Scheu Vine). — 4 months ago

30 min decant(little cloudy sediment). A formidable medium garnet color with some bricking. On the nose: perfumed notes of raspberry, vanilla, forest floor, and cedar. Taste: A creamy, juicy, balanced wine with red plum, smoke, touch of blueberry, minerals, earth, spicy vanilla oak, and a medium finish. Sticking pins in my Packers doll and crossing my fingers, let's see what happens. — 4 months ago

My last ‘14, Sette Ponti or "seven bridges," refers to 7 bridges crossing Arno River on road from Arezzo to Florence. Blend of 50% Merlot, 40% Cab Sauv & 10% Petit Verdot, aged 18 months, new French oak. Had ‘14 while ago, now tasting nicely. Dark Ruby with pronounced aromas of dark fruits, cigar box & earthy notes, touch of citrus. Flavors of cherry & plum with tobacco & spice. Fine chewy tannins, long finish ending with tobacco & mineral spice as the finish builds. Nice! Will continue to age! — 4 months ago
