Dr. Loosen Riesling
This entry-level Loosen Bros. Riesling embodies the elegant and racy characteristics of steep, slate-soil Mosel vineyards at a very reasonable price. It is a bright, vibrant, fruit-driven wine made with grapes from contracted growers throughout the Mosel River valley who work very closely with brothers Ernst and Thomas Loosen to achieve excellent quality and superb concentration in every vintage.
Straw yellow with greenish reflections. Aromas of white flowers of acacia, jasmine, bouquet of citrus such as pineapple, grapefruit and orange, apple, pear and mango and a light note of bananas. Fresh and pleasant on the palate thanks to its sustained acidity. Well balanced softness and tanginess, making it inviting and intriguing.
Vermentino often shows the fragrance of macchia, the mix of evergreen shrubs and herbs that typifies the Sardinian landscape. Costamolino hints at aromas of pine and mint coupled with ripe stone fruit and sweet citrus. The palate is at once vibrant and textural and finishes with lingering acidity.
Bogle Petite Sirah
Inky purple in the glass, this deeply colored wine resonates with juicy blueberries and hints of freshly turned earth. Succulent and savory notes of dark berries and roasted spices create a supple and mouth-filling texture. Aging in American oak for 12 months captures and concentrates the flavors, leading to a finish with chalky and chewy tannins laced with vanilla, toasted brown sugar and dark cocoa.
Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese are the varieties that give rise to this wine. A young red wine with an ample, rich aromatic fragrance. The wine is a lovely, deep and intense ruby red color with an important, solid and substantial character but, above all, it brings out all the flavors of the food with which it is matched. It is very rich in polyphenols, which harmonize with its fresh and tonic acidity.
Bogle Phantom Chardonnay
Aromas of honey and sweet vanilla arise from the glass. Juicy golden apples and ripe pears emerge alongside notes of tropical mango and guava, brightening and balancing the mouthfeel with just the right touch of acidity. The round and silky finish whispers of crème brûlée and caramel, the lingering legacy of French oak aging.
Kris Pinot Grigio
Brilliant lemon-green in color, KRIS offers enticing aromas of acacia flowers, citrus, tangerine, and hints of almonds. One of Winebow’s best-selling wines and a great value!
