What a pleasant surprise. This 2011 has Botrytis cinerea fungus called noble rot which increases the sugar content, acidity, and glycerol content of the grape clusters. Grape varieties grown are Sémillon, Sauvignon and Muscadelle. Slightly sweeter than a typical Sauternes but good Semillon fruit. #chateaularame #saintecroixdumont

A real treat to taste this Shiraz-Mataro blend from Wendouree in Clare South Australia. The fruit shows wonderful Clare characters of mint and leafy-ness. But the palate was full of fruit and depth lingering well into the back palate. #wendowree #shirazmataro #clare

Outstanding Italian from Barbera 80% , Pinot Noir 20% from Monferrato, Piemonte. The vineyards form which "Le Grive" comes are in Loazzolo (Langa, Astigiana, Pimonte). The vineyards are surrounded by a thick juniper bushes from which the Grive (thrush) eat during the winter months. #legrive #fortetodellaluja #monferrati

Forget the French merlots. Merlot tends to taste more fruity and thus, sweeter. Of course, this very much depends on where it's from but Washington State has done this grape variety proud . Buy it. #merlot #thevelvetdevil #charlessmithwines #washingtonstate
