Friends of Nice: International Wines
We love introducing our club members to a unique assortment of international wines. Hand selected by our winemakers Ryan and Ian, we have culivtaed a tasting journey to allow our members to try new and unexpected wines in the local Houston area.
The red wines are seductive, well-balanced, aromatic, fresh and direct. The tannins are elegant and approachable. The palate discloses aromas of juicy fruits as well as warm, sunny, spicy notes.
Intense on the nose deep, juicy, with dominant notes of blueberry, strawberry and redcurrant. Soft, rich and textured on the mouth with velvety round tannins. Toasted notes of white chocolate on the finish.
Very intense ruby red in colour with evident purple accents, it has the typical vineyard fragrance of ripe red fruits. To the mouth it is smooth, with good persistence.
"This is the first vintage of the Australian producer’s foray into Napa Valley. It is tightly structured yet supple, bursting in bright currant and strawberry flavors. Savory components of sage, dried herb and black pepper dot the palate alongside silky tannins and chocolate-laced richness. A fresh touch of blood orange arises on the finish. Enjoy from 2028 – 2033.
