Anarchist Wine Company Rage Against the Machine 2018, California

Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim.

Fruity nose with blueberries, black plums, blackcurrants, oak, licorice, earth, light vegetables, spices, tobacco and chocolates.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with plums, blueberries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, bitter herbs, light vegetables and peppercorn.

Medium finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a nice and easy drinking red wine from the North Coast in California. Fruit forward with mild complexity.

Still young and needs a couple of years in the bottle to mature.

Good by itself and better with food.

A good everyday wine that paired nicely with meats and cheeses.

A very interesting blend of Syrah, Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest is Petit Verdot, Petite Sirah, Gewürztraminer, Viognier and Zinfandel. A small production of less than 200 cases.

Medium finish with spices and honey.

This is a very nice Gewürztraminer from Williamette Valley in Oregon.

Refreshing with mild complexity with a nice, soft mouthfeel.

Tzora Vineyards Or 2015, Judean Hills, Israel

This is a fabulous sweet Gewürztraminer from Israel. Showing a great aromatic nose, and delicious on the palate.

Sweet and nicely balanced with enough acidity for the sugars.

Showing citrus, honeydew, tropical fruits, stewed lemons, apples, honeysuckle, kiwifruit, guava and spices.

This 5 year old is showing great complexity with a buttery mouthfeel. A great dessert wine and so easy to drink. Too bad it’s only 375 ml 😊

Would continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 7 years.

I’ve had it before, as a young wine, and it is so much better now, with some age.

100% Gewürztraminer grapes, made in the ice wine style. Kosher. Non Mevushal.

Pale lemon in color with a green hue.

Very nice nose of citrus, honeydew, yellow apples, spices, tropical fruits, flowers, melons, pineapples, lemons and minerals.

Light to medium in body with medium plus acidity. Crisp and refreshing.

Dry on the palate with citrus, lemons, apples, pears, spices, minerals, salt, light vegetables and white pepper.

Nice length on the finish with spices and almonds.

This is a very nice wine from Israel. Showing a great nose with a nice mouthfeel. Shows mild complexity on the palate.

Very enjoyable by itself or with food. Good for the pool or parties.

Better when not too cold, and that’s when the nose really shines. Loved the nose here.

Would be interesting to see how it evolves in the next 3 years.

I paired it with cheeses and crackers.
