Penns Woods 2017 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
90 points
$48
Dark dusty garnet color. Aromas and flavors of red cassis tart, hazelnut, spiced carrots, coriander, and clove with a satiny, crisp, dryish medium body and a sleek, delightful, medium-length finish with suggestions of creme Anglaise and well-integrated, chewy tannins and light oak flavor. A serious, well-tuned Cabernet that will elevate steak.
Penns Woods 2019 Reserve Chardonnay
89 points
$28
Golden yellow color. Aromas and flavors of Meyer lemon, starfruit, and pear with a supple, vibrant, dryish light body and an effortless, compelling, medium-length finish with notes of hints of passion fruit caramel with no oak flavor. A juicy, tropical Chardonnay that overdelivers for its region.
Penns Woods 2017 Reserve Merlot
89 points
$42
Dusty ruby color. Earthy aromas of raspberries, forest floor, wax, and roasted carrots with ginger with a satiny, vibrant, dryish medium body and a warming, compelling, medium-length hints of spiced raisins, toffee, carob, and cracked pepper finish with a suggestion of oak flavor. A distinctive, earthy Merlot best with rustic cuisine and similarly funky dishes; mushrooms and aged beef await.

Violet color. Aromas and flavors of raspberry cobbler and vanilla-honey gelato with a glycerous, vibrant, off-dry light-to-medium body and a polished, stimulating, medium-long finish evoking notes of graham cracker and blackberry jam with a suggestion of oak flavor. A fruity, juicy off-dry red that will work well at the table.

Straw color. Aromas of straw, honey, and lychee with a lean, soft, dry light body and a seamless, fast apple and pineapple spa water finish with no oak flavor. A lean and refreshing quaffer to serve with a good chill.
