Michael on Scott Peterson Rumpus Red Blend Sonoma Coast 2012
Once again I'm reminded why I picked Scott as one of the winemakers to be an Ambassador for. Just an outstanding wine...!! Dark in color, rich in flavor and just enough tannins to remind you they are there...but not enough to take away from the finish. I think the description is spot on and this is one I hope to see again soon. Scott, are ya listening..?
Update...Three months later.....!! Can I go 6 Stars...?? All of what I said above, but even better now. This wine has smoothed out into a fantastic sipping wine. I'm now getting a subtle smokey oak nose..??Does that make sense..? The color is a deeeeep rich red, almost going purple. I sure hope we have one more buried in the wine fridge
It's tough to beat Carols review...but I'll try. Very light salmon color with a wonderful nose of bright, crisp, clean fruits. Microscopic bubbles go on forever. This is making us both enjoy this dreary-rainy Nashville Saturday morning.
After Carol and I flew home from vacation we heard from our good friend Teresa on the ride home. She was passing through the area and wanted to crash for the night. Sure...and guess what..? We have wines to rate...!! After settling in we took our first sip and we looked at each other and said...YUM..!! Vanilla, spicy notes and dark fruit. Very nice tannins and great finish.
At Naked Wines we define fine wines as wines that need more than one year from vine to table. This is a subject of very heated and earnest debate among wine enthusiasts, and every one of them seems to have their own definition. So we just picked the one that made the most sense to us!
In our humble opinion (and there are many who would disagree) fine wines are not NECESSARILY:
From classic regions like Bordeaux and Burgundy. Other less well known regions are capable of producing wines that blind taste tests rate as equivalent or even better than the classic regions.
Estate Wines. Many expensive wines source most of their grapes from independent growers.
In September 2013, we launched a Fine Wine Bond where we raised £5 million to invest in the 'top-end' stuff.
So we're well armed to take on the fine wine market with a bang - and our range of fine wines will be increasing over the next few months / years!
The bond offer is now closed, but we might run another issue in the future if there's enough interest…
Smart move - you've found the Sweet Spot
Here's a juicy little nugget of insider info…
When it comes to wine, a small step in price = a HUGE leap in quality and taste
By spending $11 - $15 for a bottle of wine, you're actually getting more than DOUBLE the quality of wine than a $8 - $10 bottle... pretty impressive huh?
Sound too good to be true? It's not. Here's how it works...
The first several bucks you pay for a bottle covers basics that don't make the wine taste any better (glass bottle, bottling, labeling, closure, etc). As the price of a bottle increases, more of your money goes towards the delicious juice in the bottle rather than dry goods, taxes, and other boring stuff that adds nothing to the taste.
So you get a LOT more bang for your buck
These Sweet Spot wines have benefited from the very best fruit picked from immaculate vineyards, oodles of TLC, and a lil' extra Angel-funding at every step of the winemaking process.
Pull yer socks up. Because if these Sweet Spot beauties don't blow 'em off I don't know what will
I guarantee our Sweet Spot wines will blow you away. If they don't, then I'll give you every single penny back. So you've really got nothing to lose.
