Drank well, would buy again. Generous nose, silky smooth, medium finish. Fine winemaking, great Sangiovese/Cab blend.

Drank well, a little short in the mouth but overall a nice fruity crisp taste without any object-able qualities. I would buy again.

Big fruit on nose. Medium in mouth. Well balanced & drinks really well after 30 minutes of aeration (or Vinturi). Definitely would buy again!

Dryer than I remembered from our tasting at the winery...

Still a bit tight but opened up well after sitting in glass for 45 minutes (or using a Vinturi).

Nice drinking Pinot with sharp earthy start that smoothes out for a nice finish.

Excellent flavor & balance for the cost. Light, fruity, with a relatively smooth finish -- great summer wine! St Supery relabeled their excess vintage for World Market!

Great table wine, even better after hour in the glass. Hard to beat at $5.50 at Costco.

Big fruit, plums & cherries, that are very pleasing to the nose. Medium in the mouth with a nice finish. Slight spiciness and paired well with our caprese salad. Loved this wine, one of our favorite wines in the cellar for the last few years, not quite as good as it once was but I will definitely be buying the next vintage.

Dark red color, full of fruit with nice bouquet. High alcohol and a bit of acidity but long on the tongue & drank well. Have 2 bottles left & need to drink fairly soon! I'm a big fan of Silverado wines and I will be buying more!

It might be a but past its prime but we enjoyed it tonight. The fruit bouquet fade rather quickly but nice blood red color. Medium body. Low to medium tannanils and decent finish.

Drank well, didn't finish as long as the bottle of this vintage I drank a year ago but that is to be expected. Beautiful gold color, medium nose & that really smooth buttery taste that Rombauer is known for. Wish I had more...

Held up better than I thought, opened up nicely after decanting & a hour in the glass. Nice big bouquet, tastes of blackberries & bold fruit. Fairly long, smooth finish with low tannins. Would buy again.

One of the few 100% Petite Verdot's I have ever found. This varietal is usually used in small amounts for Bordeaux blends to add tannin, colour, and complexity to the blend so it was a rare treat to find a 100% bottling. A great table wine that is hearty, earthy, and slightly spicy, I definitely recommend a tasting (if you can fine it) even it is just to get a greater evaluation of this varietal.
