Merle scored this wine: 95/100

This smooth late harvest Riesling from the Mosel wine region in Germany has vanilla and banana aromas. It is 7.5% alcohol by volume and is produced by Weingut Vollenweider. This excellent Riesling is easy to drink and enjoy and can balance a spicy meal or complement a summer salad.

Merle reviewed this wine:

A product of the Bolgheri wine region on the Tuscan Coast, this Bordeaux blend consists of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. With a nose of red cherries and spices, this full-bodied red is easy to enjoy. The vineyards are located near the sea and sheltered by nearby hills. The classic varietals of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot thrive in the alluvial, volcanic and marine soils.
