 Tasted by wine-strategies on 6/8/2013: Consistent with prior bottles, this has everything I'm looking for in the grape and growing area. Excellent with food and on its own. I have just two left that I will keep the same as I would with bottles costing 5x more. highly recommended, thru 2016, 12,5% abv (938 views)
 Tasted by wine-strategies on 5/19/2013: PnP served non-blind. Perhaps the best showing yet (half way through a case). Delicious, honest, clean and satisfying. Would love to have another case in the cellar, recommended. 12,5% abv, thru 2016 (913 views)
 Tasted by wine-strategies on 5/11/2013: Every bit as good and refreshing as the last bottle. I'm beginning to run low on stock and find myself wishing I had another case or two in the cellar. 12,5% abv, thru 2016 (842 views)
 Tasted by wine-strategies on 4/29/2013: Consistent with prior bottles, very nice expression of the grape and place for ~ $15. Certainly recommended and would repurchase if I could find more. 12,5% abv, thru 2016 (953 views)
 Tasted by npopowitz on 3/25/2013 & rated 92 points: I could drink this everyday and never get tired of it. Simply a delight. (702 views)
 Tasted by wine-strategies on 3/22/2013: consistent tn's. Bright aromas, excellent typicity on the nose and palate. Best served with a slight chill kept on it. Under $15, this is a very reliable offering, moreover, it's one I would easily choose to purchase again. 12,5% abv, recommended, drink thru 2016 (535 views)
 Tasted by scotty_b on 2/19/2013 & rated 91 points: Lemon, lime, guava bursting from the glass. Good balanced structure. Not overly fruity. Exceeded my expectations. Prototypical Loire SB done right! (339 views)
 Tasted by wine-strategies on 2/14/2013: consistent tn's, enjoyed over 3 nights. Already kicking myself in the pants for not having purchased a second case. Highly recommended, 12.5% abv, enjoy over the next few years (543 views)
 Tasted by wine-strategies on 2/3/2013: PnP. Pale toward straw color, with fresh, attractive aromas on would expect from Touraine SB. Typical flavors, light toward medium body that's missing some acid/tension, but then I'm an acid freak, so most would prolly say it's probably spot on. I've got 11 more, and I think it should be great fun to see how this manages over the coming 2-3 years. 12,5% abv, drink thru 2016. Very good QPR, very clean. (673 views)
