The 2012 Fowles Wine Are you Game? Chardonnay has appealing aromas of pineapple, lime, green apple, butter and vanilla. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry (perceivably dry), fruity wine; with refreshing acidity and a medium to long finish. This is a food friendly wine; drink now – 2018+. My impression: NICE, 88 pts. Tasted at Australia Today 2014 Trade show http://grapeselections.com/australian-wine/ in Feb/14.

Review of the 2010 vintage: The 2010 Ghost Pine Chardonnay, sourced from Sonoma, Monterey and Napa Counties and aged in both French and American oak after fermentation, has intense aromas of ripe pear, citrus, butter and subtle oak. It is medium bodied with good fruit intensity, has a good structure and a long and smooth finish. Pair with salty meat dishes, but rather enjoy sipping it by itself; drink now to 2017. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 90pts – it is recommended especially because currently it is on Limited Time Offer for $2 off. Tasted March/13.

Review for an older vintage: The 2009 Jacob’s Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is medium bodied, fruity to INTEGRATED wine, with nice aromas of sweet cherry + vanilla and thyme on the nose and blackberry and bilberry on the palate. It is off balance: slightly acidic, with refined tannins (decant for 1 hour plus) and a medium to long finish with noticeable fizzyness that lasts for the first hour. Drink now or hold standing up (screw cap) for short term. My impression: NOTHING SPECIAL (at first) to NICE, 88 pts – not a recommended wine. Tasted Nov/11.

Review for the 2010 Vintage: The 2010 Firestone Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has deep aromas of strawberry, blackberry, toasted oak, vanilla and coconut. It is medium to full bodied, integrated, with good acidity, refined tannins (decant for 15 min) and a smooth finish of long length. Drink now – 2020; enjoy as a sipper or with bold meals. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 90-91 pts – recommended based both on quality and value – widely available in the General Section of LCBO. Tasted March/13.

Review for an older vintage: The 2010 Kim Crawford Pinot Noir is a light bodied, fruity wine with cherry notes. It has refined tannins (decant for 15 min) and a medium, slightly sweeter, mineral finish. Drink now and for the next couple of years. Drink-how: have it with lightly flavoured foods (eg. pizza). My impression: NOTHING SPECIAL to NICE, 87 pts. Tasted Aug/12.

The 2008 Beronia Reserva has intense aromas of cherry, dark chocolate, toasted oak, coconut and vanilla. It has light to medium body, integrated, has refined tannins (decant for 15-30 min) and the finish is long. It is overpowered by toasted vanilla/oak without the support of the fruit – hence a sipper, or can be drunk with dominating foods; drink now – 2016. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 89 pts – recommended buy for lovers of oak. Tasted Jan/13.
.
The 2007 Beronia Reserva, composed of Tempranillo, Graciano and Mazuelo and aged in French and American oak for 18 months, is a medium to full bodied, integrated wine, with intense aromas of cherry, black currant, leather, cedar and abundant coconut and vanilla. It has refined tannins (decant for 15 to 30 min), nice acidity and a long finish. This wine is meant to be enjoyed by itself, but is also food friendly – especially with red meats; it is ready to drink now and as it has a cellaring potential of +1-2 pts, it can be cellared for another 5-8 years. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 90 pts – This traditional Rioja is on my recommendations list – buy by the case as similar wines sell for $5-10 more. Tasted Sept & Nov/12.

The 2010 Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon is composed of undisclosed amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Petit Syrah and Teroldego – all sourced from the Napa Valley. It has intense, lifted aromas of cherry, black currant, pine, oak and vanilla. It has a medium to full, integrated body, structure that still needs to come together with refined tannins (decant for 30 min) and somewhat lacking acidity, and a medium to long, silky finish. Enjoy as a sipper; drink now to 2020+. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 90-91 pts – recommended based on quality – on Limited Time Offer for $3 off until April 1st/13. Tasted March/13.
