Yo ‘ho

Affectionately referred to as the ‘ho, I’m really talking about the 2007 Twisted Oak Verdelho.  I love this wine…everything about it…the price, what’s in the bottle, yum! I’ve reviewed the 2006 and the 2005 in previous years.  This latest bottle arrived in my Twisted Few Club shipment and retails for $16, but at the club price it’s $12.80, making it a supreme bargain and a great wine for the hot days ahead.  The ‘ho has a screw cap closure and clocks in at 13% alcohol by volume.

On the nose I get pineapple, tropical fruit, spice, peach, mandarin oranges, banana, and papaya.  In the mouth I found the wine to have a a slightly creamy texture and I got flavors of lemon, tropical fruit, papaya, melon, pear, citrus, and granny smith apples.  Overall, the wine is dry, crisp, and easy to drink.  A definite must buy for the summer months!

    Hi localtvnews, thanks for stopping by. It is a good looking bottle. You should definitely show up and beg for a glass…I’m sure El Jefe would oblige!
