Characteristic - This VALCKENBERG GEWÜRZTRAMINER is a full-bodied, off-dry white with a lovely aroma of roses, followed by flavors of ripe peaches and litchi on the palate. The finish offers signature “gewürz” notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and clove. Perfect with patés, hearty cheeses or fruity dessert. Delicious simply on its own.
"While the nose is a touch herbaceous, there's plenty of varietal characteristic to celebrate in this fresh, blossomy Gewürztraminer. Green melon and peach flavors are brightened by a lemony squirt and delicate lace of sweetness on the finish."
This beautiful wine has aromas as ripe as dried figs, flavors as deep as blackberries falling off the vine. Four Vines Lodi Old Vine Zinfandel: big berry flavors, a hefty dusting of spice and zesty pepper are this Zin’s calling cards.
Ruby red color with gold trim. Bright and deep. Complex aromas. Great balance between fruit (cherries, black plums, ripe blackberries) and clear tones from wood (clove, pepper, vanilla and coconut). The sense of smell is even more intensified with the aromas that develop during aging in bottle. Smooth and balanced on the palate with a long and flavorful finish

This wine isn't anything I would normally drink but the hoopla about it in Trader Joe's made me seek it out and give it a taste. I actually drunk it and tried my best to pull out what I thought would be some kind of flavor. Not quality, not aromas or real taste. But a fair shot with this tasting.

This second installment of Urban Wine Life from the Robertson Winery. I try a $6.99 Robertson Winery Sauvignon Blanc. This is a South African wine that normally shows up pretty well (reference the Chenin Blancs and Chardonnays) During this episode, I try this South African Sauvignon Blanc and sadly compare it to the best regions for this grape such as Oregon State and New Zealand. Here are the notes.

Today I open up my lovely bottle of Auslese for a dish with Seasoned chicken breast, Brussels sprouts, cranberries and a side of mashed sweet potatoes. Being a lover of Riesling, this food pairing was perfect for this dish I had for dinner with a slightly sweet wine that would compliment this meal very well. I was not disappointed. With this podcast, I speak to a little history of one of the most noblest and respected grapes on earth.
