Like the aromas, the flavors of the 2009 Mendoza Station Reserva Torrontes are mostly tropical fruit but combined with a bit of citrus. This is a dry, light-bodied white wine with marked acidity and a moderate flavor intensity. Like other Torrontes, it's best when drunk cold and shouldn't be allowed to warm up too much.
The Brassfield Serenity 2006 is golden yellow, though a bit watery with clear edges. The Brassfield Serenity is an off-dry, medium-bodied wine with lively, marked acidity. The flavors are mostly fruit and apple. It has much of the sweetness and character of a good Riesling, though it doesn't actually taste like one. Overall the Brassfield Serenity 2006 is a very good, refreshing summer wine.
The 2008 Wyatt Chardonnay is a pale greenish-yellow with clear edges. The nose of the Wyatt Chardonnay is clean with distinct notes of pear, melon, and other tropical fruits. This Chardonnay is a dry, full-bodied wine with crisp acidity and moderate flavor intensity. For a Chardonnay that isn't oaked at all it's hard to avoid the impression that it still tastes a little oaky, but that's countered a bit by the mineral flavors.
Appellation: 20% Monterey County, 35% from Yolo County, 45% Mendocino County
The Susana Balbos’s Crios is a medium-bodied Torrontes which starts sweet and finishes dry, making it a great wine for a variety of situations and dishes. The flavors are primarily floral and tropical fruit, especially melons. The acid is crisp and refreshing and the texture is creamy.
This is a dry, medium-bodied wine with marked acidity. The Priest Ranch 2007 Sauvignon Blanc doesn't taste nearly as strong as it smells. The flavors are only low to moderate, with some barely detectable apple and maybe tropical fruit as well.
At times it has a slightly bitter aftertaste and it really needs to be cold to be enjoyed properly — as it warms, an unpleasant alcohol burn develops. Unfortunately, the colder it is the more the flavors are suppressed. In the end, this unresolvable tension causes the wine to be too unbalanced.
