2014 Jules Taylor Sauvignon Blanc,

Scented of passionfruit, green mango and gooseberries with hints of sweat, baker’s yeast and chopped herbs, medium-bodied has mouth-filling tropical fruit flavors and a racy acid backbone giving lift through the long finish.

2013 Obalo
Rioja, Spain
All tempranillo; fermented in stainless steel and aged for four months in mostly new French oak: Brilliant ruby. Heady red fruit and floral pastille aromas show very good clarity and pick up spice and mineral qualities with air. Silky and seamless on the palate, offering sweet raspberry and spicecake flavors that put on weight with air. Very fresh Rioja with strong finishing lift and thrust and gentle tannins adding shape. An awfully impressive effort. 90 Pts Stephen Tanzer
