Bon Appétit: NEW Wines from L’Eft Bank, April 20, 2012
NV Rack and Riddle Brut, North Coast, CA #/bottles
Citrus, Pear, and floral aromas with a hint of yeast. The fine mousse brings forth the light citrus- smooth and round in the mouth. Finish is crisp with a note of grapefruit.
2010 Sleight of Hand Gewurtztramier, The Magician, Columbia Valley, Washington
85% Gewurtztramier, 15% Riesling. From grapes planted in shallow flood deposits over fractured basalt producing an intensely mineral-driven wine. Aromas and flavors of picked pears and apples, along with an intense note of cinnamon and spice, carried by crisp acid from start to finish.
2009 Sleight of Hand Renegade Red, Washington #/bottles
80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot. Lots of red and black fruits, scents of loamy minerality, and fine grained tannins that are matched with balanced acidity.
2010 Thomas Goss Shiraz, South Australia #/bottles
…stacked to the rafters with juicy blackberry fruit, dark chocolate, licorice and well-balanced and integrated ripe tannins...
2010 Moscato Bella, Central Coast, CA #/bottles
It is an utterly impeccable wine layered with expressive fruit, floral aromatics and persistent minerality. Green apples, pears and spices linger on the finish.
