Here are seven wines that have crossed the NYCR tasting table in recent weeks but will not be reviewed as part of a stand-alone post. As always, these are notes almost verbatim from my tasting notebook:

Bouke 2009 Bouquet Rose Wine ($15): Intense watermelon Jolly Rancher with sweet strawberry and just a little rose petal on the nose. Watermelon and cherry candy with an interesting gingery not. Off-dry and while not sugary, could use a bit more acid to lift the freshness. Rose petal peeks in again on the finish. Rating: 79

Channing Daughters Winery 2008 Blaufrankisch ($25): Shows red berries on the nose — raspberry and cherry — with sweet licorice and black pepper sprinkled. More plummy on the palate with briary red raspberry, spice and a little cured meat edge. Soft tannins and just enough acidity. Medium finish of plum and pepper. Rating: 86

Hosmer Winery 2008 Riesling ($12): Fennel, sweet lime and pear on the nose with an interesting dried apple note in the background. Nicely balanced off-dry style. Mouth-filling and fruity with lime and pear/apple. Enough RS to please the masses, but not without class. Very good value. Rating: 85

Paumanok Vineyards NV Vin Rose ($17): Watermelon rind, red raspberry and cherry on the nose with cranberry, cherry and strawberry on the palate with just a little peach. It's fresh with acidity, but with so much sweetness (3.8% RS) it still tastes quite sweet. Rating: 81

Raphael 2009 Grand Cru Chardonnay ($17): Fuji apple and lemon are accented by a lightly floral note and ocean breeze salinity. Crisp palate with apple, lemon verbena. Fresh acid and a little salty minerality on the medium finish. Simple but clean. Rating: 84

Raphael 2009 Grand Cru Sauvingon Blanc ($16): Nose is filled with white grapefruit — pulp and pith — with a little grassy herb and fresh hay. Grapefruit dominates the medium-bodied palate with juicy acidity. Subtle mineral character on the end of a short finish. Extremely fresh, but very simple and short. Rating: 83

Wolffer Estate Vineyards 2009 Classic White ($16): Blend of chardonnay, riesling and gewurztraminer. Peachy and apple-y with orange peel and sweet lime on the nose. A bit more gewurzty on the medium-bodied palate. Rich but lively with a peachy core and lychee, spice and a squirt of lime. Finish isn't lengthy, but is dry/fresh. Great balance and freshness.
