St. Julian 2013 Reserve Late Harvest Riesling (Lake Michigan Shore) Review

  • The wine is soft and ripe, with a touch of spice that adds complexity to the fruitiness. It is attractive as it is fruity and full of red currant and black plum fruit flavors.
  • The Cte de Tric, from the Lowi family, is a small village in the north of the village. An unusual wine, it is a blend of the two principal grapes–the green grapes, Syrah and Grenache–that go with the dominant character of red currant and white almond. The wine has a wide, mouthfilling texture, a light touch and a toasty finish.
  • Aromas of smoke, black cherry and a whiff of freshly ground black pepper come together in the glass. The firm palate offers black raspberry, raspberry, anise and a hint of clove alongside firm tannins. The finish is smooth and long.
  • Aromas of freshly sliced apple, lemon curd and a whiff of toasted marshmallow come together in the glass. The simple palate offers white peach and anise alongside tangy acidity and dry, somewhat chunky-feeling apple and pear flavors.
  • This wine has a ripe, lightly spicy character that is made up of black fruits and crisp acidity. It is as fresh as possible, yet it has a structure that gives a firm structure. The aftertaste is bright and crisp. Drink from 2017.
  • The fresh, lively aromatics of grapefruit and tangerine mark the nose. The palate offers a rich, round, almost sweet mouthfeel that is softened by a touch of honey.
