Customer Reviews - Simple Hedonisms Wine Blog

Zippy acidity, great minerality, oily viscosity - a sensory heady pleasure. And super quaffable at 12.5% alcohol. (why wont we learn this domestically?) I'd buy a case if I could, and lay some down, besides gulping down now.
that has great body, silky finish, great red fruit expression without being jammy, a nice balance of lean but flavorful. A wine both a geek and a 'bigger' wine more novice drinker could both appreciate. An aromatic nose of raspberry, red fruit, touch of spice. Bright fruit in mouth, balanced acid and tannins. Much to love about this wine, at 2x the price.
RS but juicy finish, good acidity.love love love. How is this only $15 ?
The 90 WS didn't really carry a lot of weight, and the <$15 price more scared me. It's not a value if I pour it down the drain. But I was wandering through K&L awaiting will call pick up and thought why not, Marsanne always adds interesting character to Rhone white blends, especially viognier based.
Color: pale yellow straw; very clear
Nose: Abundant; white peach, green apple, guava, lime; oyster shell
Mouth: Lush; big stone fruit, citrus, melon. Some minerality. Good acidity at finish, only 13% alcohol.
Recommend. a Quaffer alone; have to ponder more what food I would pair with this besides shellfish. Re-ordered.
Color: a very pale yellow color. Clear.
Aroma: characteristic floral nose. Pineapple. Hint of citrus.
In the Mouth: A plethora of fruit â€“ peach, green apple, grapefuit. Excellent viscosity, mouthfeel, balance, with a mouth watering, acidic finish.
Original review- I am a massive Torrontes fan after my trip to Mendoza in 2008 and try-buy every release I see. I have had this one twice, once from K&L and once from a specialty store in Santa Rosa. The first one was horrible, I wrote it off to a bad bottle, possible cork taint, although there a detectable corked odor, just the horrid finish. Dumped it. Had the second bottle last night, poured in a tasting class, this one had the same slight off nose, and the horrible finish. The person leading the class, who owns the store, was equally appalled. Either there are numerous bad cases out there, or its just bad period.
