The Fetzer Gewürztraminer is on the one hand thick and sweet enough to function as a dessert wine, but on the other hand it's also strong enough to stand up to foods and work as a regular dinner wine. There aren't many varietals that can pull off this balancing act, but the Gewürztraminer is one of them and Fetzer has done a nice job making this wine from it.
The Volant Mill wine is medium-sweet and rather tart. It tastes strongly of blackberries, as you would expect. It's probably not the sort of wine that you would want to just sit and drink alone. You could do this, if you want, but blackberry wine is better when paired with desserts - primarily chocolate.
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.
The Valckenberg Ortega Trockenbeerenauslese is a heavy dessert wine so we paired it with several popular dessert choices. Unfortunately we disagreed on just how well the Valckenberg Ortega paired with several of them.
As with the aromas, the flavors of Bully Hill's Love My Goat are mostly cherry with a bit of plum. This medium-bodied red wine is quite sweet though there is also a lively acidity and soft tannins. It's not at all complex and it feels almost as thick as it looks despite the relatively low alcohol content. Overall the elements of this wine don't hang together or mesh as well as I've found in other inexpensive red wines. Bully Hill's Love My Goat will probably be an acceptable red table wine or cookout wine for most people, but it's strong sweetness combined with its lack of complexity doesn't put it at the top of my list of choices.
