The following are wines we will be tasting as reviewed in Her Magazine this month!
Frisk Prickly Riesling, Australia, 2010
This wine definitely makes you feel frisky! The prickly part comes from a light effervescence of bubbles injected into the bottle, enhancing the luscious sweetness and floral notes. This Riesling is not too sweet or too syrupy due to the balance of acidity that the citrus flavors bring. Find it around $12.
Trapiche Broquel Malbec, Argentina, 2009
Malbec is becoming a star. It has all the body of a cabernet without any chalkiness left over on your palate. While it’s easily enjoyed by itself, Malbec stands up to food really well. With aromas of black fruit jam and liqueur and an elegant touch of smoke, vanilla and chocolate, this wine has a sweet attack, full-bodied tannins with a long, pleasant finish. Ideal to combine with pasta and mushroom sauce, grilled red meats, stews and cheeses. Available for around $16.
Qupe Syrah, Central Coast, California, 2009
This is a classic Central Coast Syrah exhibiting cherry, spice, and everything nice. Syrah is typically pretty smooth, and a great middle of the road red wine that is sure to be a crowd pleaser. This one has lingering chocolate overtones that make it a nice partner for sweets. Find it around $15.
Zaphy Cabernet, Mendoza, Argentina, 2010
Zaphy means “root” or “origin” in the language of the Huarpes, indigenous inhabitants of the Mendoza. The wine itself imparts a beautiful tapestry of spice, blackberry and plum and will pair nicely with a burger hot off the grill on a crisp fall evening. Find it at about $14.
