Terrassen Federspiel

Domäne Wachau Terrassen Federspiel Riesling 2017

Wachau D.A.C., Austria
94 days ago

Pamela scored this wine: 89/100

Dry, lime-zesty, grapefruit-laced zinger of a Riesling. Gotta try this one with Francois Chartier's sauteed shrimp with rosemary (Tastebuds and Molecules). Tasted November 2018.

Pamela scored this wine: 91/100

Heady and saturated aromas of honey, honeysuckle, rose and high octane. Lovely and mouthfilling apricot, honey, candied citrus peel with a nip of tangerine acidity and a faint hint of botrytus. Try this with a peach crisp - use a light hand with the sugar or semi-firm cheeses. Tasted November 2018

Winemakers Blend

Ghost Pines Winemakers Blend Merlot 2015

Napa, Sonoma, California, United States
95 days ago

Pamela scored this wine: 89/100

Rich and dense aromatics and hefty on the palate - dark, ripe blackberry, black currant, dark chocolate, sweet spice, charcoal and leather - this is one burly Merlot. Enjoy with lamb shanks in a red wine reduction. Tasted November 2018

Laundry Vineyard

Southbrook Vineyards Laundry Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Lincoln Lakeshore, Niagara, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada
95 days ago

Pamela scored this wine: 87/100

Light-bodied, pale, watery red coloured, cherry, raspberry, cough drop, roasted beet, hint of earth, savoury. Bit of a short, tannic finish, but nice and chewy. Tasted November 2018

The Embrace

The Foreign Affair Winery The Embrace 2017

Niagara Peninsula, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada
95 days ago

Pamela scored this wine: 88/100

A ripasso-style blend of Gamay Noir and Pinot Noir that I found pretty cool - combining the freshness of Gamay and earthy texture of Pinot Noir. Fruity cherry pluminess, juicy acidity, a little tree bark and decent depth and tannic structure with a medium finish. Pair with roasted root vegetable casserole. Tasted November 2018
