St. Clair Winery

New Mexico Cabernet Sauvignon Zinfandel 2014

7.5

Very light garnet color, notes of Garlic Scapes right off on open, though it may blow off with time. Blackberry, cranberries, and cola nut on the nose. In the mouth there is evidence of sugar but it is decently balanced with the acid and structure. Cassis and jammy cranberries. #nmwine #YANISYOURFRIEND — 3 years ago

I had a reserve Zinfandel from St Clair that I quite liked. Very much enjoyed Canyon Wind 47-Ten wines a few years back, by the way.

#blends are usually my go to. Here we see a little too much oxidation for my taste. Big dark color, dried prune, cherry candy, and a touch of Italian parsley. Still carries some sugar, and some reduced Sulfur notes of onion, but those blew off over time. The structure here is out of balance with the acid so it over plays the rest of the mouth. #nmwine — 3 years ago

Mesilla Valley Gewurztraminer 2015

9.1

Pretty nose with a nice spiced pear, lychee, white grapefruit, and a dash of kerosene. At first taste it's a touch sweet, but the bracing acid manages to make it perceive rather dry, notes of pink grapefruit, lime, honey and lavender. All in all a solid #nmwine #value #other46 — 3 years ago

While I'm almost a dry #Rosè type of person- sometimes sweet is fun. Thanks to #nmwine for a fun riff of #muscatto A little honey and tomato water to go along with strawberries on the nose, with a good slug of sugar, but decently balanced with acid. Totally quaffable. — 3 years ago
