willi loth appellations

Arderius Blanc 2009 Rioja  .. made from 100% Viura... light light lemon yellow. flint and stone on the nose, surprisingly lush and round for the varietal. a touch sweet and it does not end up as dry or even bitter as some Viura I have tried.. will be at the next tasting.. march 10

Azagador Crianza 2007 mostly tempranillo with a little cab and merlot blended in. soft almost non existent nose. slight bing cherry on the palate that quickly goes to more earthy and tart on the finish.

Walton Cabernet Napa 2006.. dark color.. cedar nose and dill and cedar on the palate. lots of tannin... some berry but not much.... and a little hot on the end from the alcohol.
