2014 Riesling Circle 89

Red Newt’s Circle Riesling is their largest production wine, and, with 33 grams per liter of residual sugar, it is designed to offer an easy approachability and broad appeal. This particular vintage is especially delicious, matching soft, peachy fruit to 2014’s hallmark vibrancy. The nose is a tantalizing combination of ripe stone fruits and flint, and the palate is lush and fruit-forward, with a soft texture that is held aloft by the perky acidity. A lovely floral tone comes through in the finish. Overall, an easy-drinking and well-made wine.

2014 Cabernet Franc 88

Light garnet in hue. After skipping the 2013 vintage entirely, Red Newt changed direction with their ’14, electing to vinify it entirely in stainless steel, with no oak whatsoever. The nose is meaty and intense, with strong scents of peppercorn and dried herbs along with what appears to be a touch of reduction. The palate is surprisingly soft and lifted, with short-grained, ripe tannins. Overall, an interesting, savory wine.
