Finally, having a Google alert for Well Hung wine has yielded something besides explicit personal ads!
Swirl, Sip, Snark, a Virginia-centric online wine reviewer (and Twitterer [just like us!]) had some very kind words to say recently about both the ’08 Well Hung Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc in a recent review.
Our wine is no joke!
Well, it is, sure… but it doesn’t taste funny! And now you don’t just have to take our word for it!
The chardonnay: “On the nose I got light oak, green apple and yeast – I love a yeasty white wine, so I was really excited. When I got around to tasting the wine – I mean I had to savor that yeasty nose for a while – it struck me as a bright, fruity wine with hints of oak and a balanced acidity. All in all, it was a good, all purpose white that very drinkable.”
The cabernet franc: “I was immediately struck by how dark the wine was. I’m used to cab francs having a bit lighter color, but I love a dark wine, so I started to get excited for this one as well. The wine had a lot of complexity on the nose. I got dark cherry/plum, spice, caramel/oak, and a bit of leather and chocolate. In the mouth it was a mellower wine. There were definitely dark fruit elements and there were hints of oak/toastyness/caramel. The wine had a very short finish and a lighter mouthfeel than I would have expected, but it was another enjoyable wine.”
And in conclusion: “Keep an eye on these women and try their wines if you get the chance. I’m sure glad I did.”
