Took a while to open up, but once it did it was great. 2-3 hour decant needed.

Shared with my wine club at a Thai dinner. Not popular with the group. Expected more crispness.

I continue to like this wine. Light, but bold enough for food.

A nice balanced malbec. Not overpowering but clearly a malbec.

Bold flavors, but not too much tanins. Great value. Held up well in the fridge for a couple of days. I like this varietal.

Nice crisp sparkler. Used most of it for Champnge cocktails as an aperitif, but tasted a glass before mixing the drinks.

Terrific, deep colored rose made from cabernet sauvignon. Works well with food.

Beautiful deep malbec color. Well balanced, with rich fruit flavors. Drank very well after 3 hour decant.

Tasted past it's prime the first day (even after a 6 hour decant). Very earthy smell. Put it aside and tasted again teh next night and it was very good. Don't think it's going to last much longer.
