- Baer Chardonnay "Shard" Washington 2011 Product #26604 (In Stock)
No oak here, but tons and tons of flavor. Just 390 cases made of this wine that starts with pristine fruit fermented in stainless steel and then made creamier by regular lees stirring. Aromas and flavors of heirloom apples and orchard fruits shine here with an intriguing savory note weaving in and out as well. Clean, crisp, and a little creamy with a hint of salty caramel on the long, juicy, finish. Fine stuff.
- Baer Winery Star Blend 2009 Product #26355 (In Stock)
A Merlot of unusual interest and class from one of Washington State's best up-and-comers. Just 273 cases made of this rich blend of nearly 80% Merlot with dashes of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon. It's dark and elegant with generous aromas of black fruits, olive, herb and licorice. Mouthfilling and creamy, with deep chocolate cherry, fresh herb, and spice notes. Enough tannin to stand up to food, but soft and generous. Great wine for lamb or a beef tenderloin!
"Full, bright medium ruby. Pretty but restrained aromas of plum, redcurrant, pomegranate, iron and milk chocolate struck me as Pomerol-like. Suave and sweet, showing a chocolatey ripeness without going over the top. Distinctly fine-grained in texture. Finishes with broad, serious, sweet tannins that coat the front teeth. An excellent merlot-based wine."International Wine Cellar 92 points
