Wow! I didn't take any formal notes, but this is drinking absolutely sublimely right now! I'm especially blown away now that I see that this was a $10 bottle. Unfortunately my last, but if hindsight were 20/20, I would have bought cases of this.

Assuming this was spoiled as the only other sparkling red I've tried is sparkling shiraz. A frizzante, watery red with an unpleasant stewed nose.

1/23/2018 - Opened second bottle and no difference. Nasty.

Little bit corked, but despite that, I'd guess this would have been better a year ago. Drink now or regret it later.

Slightly corked. Silky smooth with subdued black fruit and leather. Very nice.

Finally drinkable. Smooth and creamy; luscious with rich seafood - lobster, crab, scallops, with just enough acidity to avoid being unctuous. I so wish I had waited on the previous bottles that were so horrible as to almost give up on this wine. Definitely needs the bottle age, at least with my palate.

Still drinking well and I expect it to hold up for at least another few years.

Quite fantastic and an incredible QPR. Musky peach and melon with a solid acidity. Really nice.

This is really drinking well right now. Without making an effort to analyze this wine, nothing just reaches out and strikes me as far as a tasting note goes. Just an overall impression of a lovely, smooth, balanced, very pleasant wine. Be sure to decant!

Needs just a bit of air to show notes of grapefruit and a hint of kiwi and stone. Bright.

First bottle opened and drunk as an aperitif came on as much too sweet and cloying. Second bottle was much better balanced and absolutely sung with salted pistachios.

This is really interesting, reminiscent of a piña colada, but not in an overwhelming tropical fruit sense. Definite notes of coconut, with just enough tropical fruity acidity to balance nicely, but not take center stage. A bit of vanilla giving it roundness. I don't know if this will hold into Day 2, we'll see. A very pleasant, unique wine.

MUCH better now. Overwhelming notes of fake butter have softened, integrating into the fruit to present a nicely balanced chardonnay. I now quite like this wine.

Nice summertime quaff with a bit of the Venetian Chardonnay "ice cream" note I get such a kick out of.

Rich and creamy, smoothly and subtly underlined in butter in a GOOD way. I normally can't stand oaky Chardonnays, but this one is the first example I've tasted that gets it right.

Fantastic summer prosecco. Delicate and crisp with notes of juicy pear. Truly INSANE QPR!

Tart red berries, sun-sweetened clover, and juicy watermelon, countered by a bright, almost effervescent acidity. This is everything I want a summer rose to be. Perfect.

Lovely nutty, briney sipping. Quickly loses complexity after opening, so don't hold back and save the rest for the next day.

Laugh all you want, but upon opening I was getting these notes reminiscent of the onion/pickle/ketchup/mustard/bun flavor of a McDonald's hamburger. Not in a bad way, and it promptly blew off, but still! Very nice wine.

Immediately upon opening this was nothing short of fermented Kool-Aid - absolutely horrible! Poised to empty down the sink, I allowed it to sit and get it's bearing and steeled myself for a second taste (yes - the first was THAT bad!). Became drinkable with some air, not to mention some cheese and almonds, showing a bit of cherry cola and red fruit, but not *nice*.

I've really been enjoying Fino lately. This bottle had a typically lovely nose of caramel, spices, toasted nuts, and candied fruit. Slightly sweet and nutty, with good salinity and a hint of orange zest, this was really lovely.

Delicious nose of ripe pears and honey. Flawed; tasty very "beery".

Honeycomb, wild flowers, hay, cider and butterscotch, balanced by grapefruit zest - perfectly balanced acidity. Irresistible.

This shiraz is really starting to come into its own now, velvety with juicy red berries, toasted brown sugar, and rich, earth and leather.

Floral nose with notes of lemon biscuit, wildflowers, saline and minerals. Really enjoyable. I wish I'd bought much more of this.

Decent jammy shiraz with a bit of sediment. Nothing earthshaking or eye opening, but solid and reliable.

Gorgeous. Velvety chocolate, cherries, red plum and warm spice. No wonder I entered it with the wrong bin location - apparently I wanted to hide it from myself!

Delicate and delicious, a rose that never fails to please. I really need to learn to purchase more while it's still available, but never do.

Initially an odd bitter finish that thankfully blew away with air. Decent rioja.

This is a really great rose. I don't know if it's just that it's the color of the blush on a ripe peach, but I could swear I tasted notes of musky summer peaches along with the usual red berries and sweet herbs. Good acidity and balance. Insane value.

Very pale peach blush in the glass with a melon nose. Notes of rose strawberries, orange zest and herbs. This was my first east coast rose and I am quite impressed. Very nice!
