Quick Review: Brooklyn Winery Part 2

France, Cotes de Thongue, Les Chemins de Bassac, Roussane/Viognier 2010
+ // Crisp // Apple, Graphite // Citrus // (Very) Light

The flavor of apple just wafted across the tongue before evaporating, making a very easy to drink wine. This is a blend of Roussane and Viognier grapes.

Spain, Rioja, Vina Gravonia, R. Lopez de Heredia, Viura 2002
++ // Funky, Crisp // Leather, Old Peach, Toffee // Apricot, Peach, Graphite, Ash // Medium

A white wine, aged 4 yrs in the barrel, this was a very different wine. Almost like a tawny port, without the sweet notes, it was still an easy drinking wine for the afternoon.
