2007 Tapiz Cabernet Sauvignon

Posted on September 15, 2009 - Filed Under Cabernet, Red wines, Reviews, South American wines, Uncategorized, Wine Reviews, region, style | Leave a Comment

All in all, this is a light, compact wine. WS gave it 90 pts, I believe, which, in my humble opinion was a little generous.

Some nice flavors of spice box, cedar, and violet, but I think this is a wine that needs some time to ripen.

At $15 you can afford to pick up a few bottles and let them age a bit…but don’t expect fireworks right away.

I dug this wine. Fruity, good finish, especially for eight bucks. It got me drunk and happy!

Geyser Peak Sauvignon Blanc

Posted on September 13, 2009 - Filed Under American wines, Reviews, Sauvignon Blanc, Uncategorized, White wines, Wine Reviews, region, style | Leave a Comment

This is the quintessential Sauvignon Blanc. Fruity, crisp, cheap(!), delicious. Highly quaffable. The perfect wine when its FUCKING 100 DEGREES OUTSIDE FOR THE TWENTIETH DAY IN A ROW!!!

(note: For those would-be etymologists out there, the word quintessential is derived from the latin term meaning ‘Fifth Essence’, which is meant to denote the fifth element (apart from Earth, Water, Air, and Fire) that embodies the celestial, heavenly perfection that exists above the moon). Nice, huh?
