- Brandborg Gewurztraminer 2011 Product #26313 (In Stock)
This fantastic dry Gewurztraminer is from the makers of our favorite value Pinot Noir, Oregon's Brandborg. Its aromatics are classic Gewurz: rose petals, lychee, and hints of spice. It's rich and moutfilling, but finishes clean. All of the exotic aromas and flavors are reigned in by a surprising amount of welcome acidity, making this a perfect partner for gently spiced Indian food.
- Brandborg Pinot Noir Bench Lands Oregon 2009 Product #26356 (In Stock)
Hard to believe, but the best selling $20 Pinot in the store is even better in 2009 than before. Once again, a fairly lightly colored, elegant, bottle of Oregon Pinot from the Umpqua Valley. Lovely aromas of berries, mushroom and roses lead to a silky, vibrant, mouthful of fresh strawberries, crunchy cherries and fresh turned earth. Just a tad more depth and smoke than the fine 2008 and ready to drink now.
"Light red. Zesty redcurrant and cherry aromas are deepened by smoky spices and cola. Lively and sharply focused, offering nervy red berry flavors and silky texture. The spiciness repeats on the energetic finish, which leaves a bitter cherry note behind."International Wine Cellar 88 points
