|Brand||Loring Wine Company|
Wine EnthusiastRipe red cherries and red currants provide the fruit scents for the savory smoked pork and sanguine raw-beef qualities that power the nose on this single-vineyard bottling. Those bloody meats mix with elderberry, ripe red plum, lavender and allspice once sipped, proving complex and tangy but with lingering dark-fruit flavors.
Wine SpectatorWell-centered on a mix of ripe apple, honeydew, spice and light creamy oak, with shades of nutmeg and hazelnut. Ends with depth and complexity. Drink now. 125 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chardonnay Rosella's Vineyard saw malolactic in 30% new French oak, and it's a rich, creamy, textured white that offers plenty of toasty oak and caramelized orchard fruits in a medium to full-bodied style. It's a big, rich effort to drink on release and over the following couple of years.
