This Week In Wine Product Reviews: Ravi Decanter
Last week we shared why the wine decanter is the most underrated wine tool available. This week we review the Ravi decanter, one of the most innovative and convenient wine accessories. Its uniquely clever modular design (as seen below) is what makes it one of the best wine decanters you can buy.
This Week In Wine: Kenwood Pinot Noir Russian River 2014 ($18)
The widely appreciated 2014 Kenwood Pinot Noir is an intense wine with fruity aromas of raspberry and plum mixed with spicy notes of nutmeg and vanilla. A savory medium-bodied red wine displaying soft hints of sweetness and smooth tannins that build up to an exceptional finish. A wine ready to be drunk now, we found the 2014 Kenwood Pinot Noir pairs beautifully with a variety of recipes, including pork, salmon and beef.
This Week In White Wine: La Crema Russian River Chardonnay 2014 ($30)
La Crema is famous for producing amazing red and white wines, especially Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The 2014 La Crema Russian River Chardonnay impresses with fresh aromas of yellow apple and stone fruits, highlighted by vanilla tones. This wine is a rich mouthful that is beautifully balanced by juicy acidity and great concentration, exhibiting a lush impression on the palate with a lingering finish.
