Andrea's Friends Recent Notes
Hearty, syrah-driven GSM. Velvety tannins.
Seriously European-style, balanced, mourvedre-driven blend (albeit California). Delicious.
Great grenache-focused wine: 52% grenache, 42% mourvedre, 6% syrah. Expected spicy aromatics/weight for a GSM but far more elgant than most.
High acid, big, bright, yet elegant pinot.
Some wild strawberry notes shine through, apropos to the name.
Earthier than I would expect from an NZ pinot.
Fresh cranberries! Lean, classically European pinot.
Big, powerful, jammy All-American meritage. Fascinating that it's the first fine wine to cross state lines.
Quintessentially red South African wine- smokey smokey smokey.
Very full and lush for a South African chenin blanc. Pronounced oak notes-more akin to a Napa chard than a French chenin.
