It was an ok dessert wine. Nothing to write home about. But below $7 at close out still a good value.

Drank it over 2 days. It was better the 2nd day. Decanting would have helped I assume. Red fruit, spices and well integrated acidity make this wine a good food wine. Acidity was more restraint the 2nd day.

Decant or open a bit before drinking. Nicely integrated tannins, medium-plus fruit, a delight of a wine.

This is a great find and pleasant surprise. We loved the wine, fruit, honeysuckle, canteloupe comes to my mind. I am not familiare with the Scheurebe varietal, so I can't say if the meets the varietal expectations, but it certainly pleased us and our guests.

A pleasant medium-bodied wine. Fruit forward and well integrated tannins. A bit of a short, flat finish.

Big vanilla bomb. Not necessarily a typical Rioja. Rich, fruity, tannins have faded by now.

More fruit forward than I would expect from a Pinot. Not unpleasant, but not a Pinot either.

Light fruit, soft tannins. Nice wine for the price. Seems made for the American Market, no need to keep it for a while.

A classic light Pinot, old school, not a heavy handed new world Pinot.

Drinks well, but may even be stored a bit to let the tannins mellow a bit. Big, lush, fruit with a strong tannin structure.

For less than $5 per bottle pretty decent, but by no means a good sparkling wine. Works well in a Spritzer or punch

While typical Pinot characteristic. Lush, fruity, really big, too big. Call it a Zinfandelized Pinot version.
