Wine Reviews

6269562694USSubdued notes of butterscotch and flaky pie crust mark this Chardonnay's nose. It is a buttery, waxy-textured selection with tame acidity, and it would pair well with steamed lobster in a casual setting.8523VirginiaVirginiaOtium 2011 Chardonnay (Virginia)ChardonnayOtium

6267262671PortugalSyrah is not an approved grape for Douro wines, so the grapes from the small parcel at Romaneira go under the regional name. The wine is rich, generous and concentrated. Perfumed black fruits are laced with fine tannins and a ripe acidity. A wine for aging further, it will be ready from 2018.9035DurienseRoger Voss@vossrogerQuinta da Romaneira 2013 Syrah (Duriense)SyrahQuinta da Romaneira

6267462673FranceA restrained nose with hints of hazelnut, banana and peach leads to a juicy but restrained palate where texture is as important as flavor. This wine is balanced and structured.
