Elegant. Floral violet and blueberry nose. Bursts of blackberry and blueberry on the pallete with hints of cedar on the finish. Soft tannins. Went perfectly with our Moroccan dinner featuring poultry and beef with sweet and savory spices.

Savory, racy, refreshing. Well-balanced with medium acidity and medium body, despite the oak barrel aging.

Drank on two separate occasions within two weeks of delivery. Can't recall exact dates but around April 1.

Grapefruit floral and mineral notes. Refreshing without biting acidity. Enjoyed enough to order more.

Much better than bottle opened back in 2012. Nice red fruit, full body. Nice acidity. Postage stamp, wood spice, mushroom.

Billed as approachable despite it's age. Nonsense. Still too young. Tight, nondescript palate.

Drinking very well now. Very nice balance - soft tannins yield to a pop of acidity on the finish that provides nice complexity. Black fruit with a hint of dill and bay leaf on the pallet. Not a drop of the sour notes mentioned in previous descriptions.

fruit bomb, hints of camphor on the nose give way to violet and black fruit. Chocolate covered blueberries and cherries on the palette! Would prefer a longer, more complex finish for the price.

Apple and pear give way to lychee, honey and subtle flower nose. Medium to low acidity, medium body with lean, refreshing finish.

Beautiful wine. Nose of rose and lavender, some cumin and red berries. Firing on all cylinders with notable tannin and acidity (could age further) but in balance. Long, lingering finish. Would buy again - fun and unique.

Not very impressed. Full bodied but lacking structure. Perhaps past its prime.

Bleh! really bad Pinot, completely overpriced. Tasted thin and watery. Will not buy again.

Not a nice SB at all. Tasted way too sweet, no character or acidity, tasted more like a bland Chenin Blanc.

Initially had with a pasta dish, but very easy to drink by itself. Inky ruby in appearance, sticks to the glass, berries on the nose. Nice balance in the mouth leaving a pleasant finish. Full bodied with blackberry, cherries and plumb tastes. Good QPR.

Had two bottles at Scala's in San Fran (priced at $60 a pop). Wine paired quite well with various dishes ranging from pasta to salmon to pizza. Elegant, medium levels of acidity, and moderate hints of tannin. Could probably benefit from decanting but still tasted great with the first pour. Fantastic value if purchased at a wine shop (under $20).

Not a typical Riesling by any means. Very minerally, toned down acidity, quite dry. Fuller body than I expected - made me think of a Chablis.

Great value. Went perfectly with ham and turkey dinner at Christmas. Not overly acidic, quite smooth. Full of ripe cherries on the pallet and in the nose. Went back and purchased another half dozen bottles.

Pleasant aroma, classic Sav. Blanc, grapefruit, citrus fruit. Tart first sip, grapefruit, lemons and lime but became more fruity as we drank- overall we enjoyed it a lot. Will look out for the 06 and 07 from this producer.

Straw color, pineapple, honeydew melon and honey on the nose. Delicate, balanced wine - nice acidic crispness to it. Hints of pear, peach & melon in the mouth. Went down very well with some sushi - will def. buy again ($19.99 from Costco).

Drank over two evenings ... first evening didn't enjoy it. Was better on the second evening having been decanted. Probably will not buy again.

Color: Light Ruby. Blood
Nose: light scents. Fruity. Jam.
Palate: Not complex. Very light bodied. Not as tart as most Pinot Noirs. Holds good tasted through to finish.
Overall: No noticeable tannins, very slight acidity. Good summer drink - perfect for a picnic.

Color: Almond
Nose: Oak aging of the Sauvignon Blanc very evident on nose - almost overpowering. Hints of sandalwood, 'Holiday scents' & sea.
Palate: One of the most complex wines we've had - smooth but can taste the slight tartness of a Sauvignon Blanc. Oak aging prominent giving it a smooth taste from start to finish. Very well balanced.
Overall: Outstanding wine - but couldn't drink a lot of it in one sitting. Expensive but worth it ($59.53 @ vineyard in 2004)

Color: Dark Garnet
Nose: Cherries, brown sugar, slight cinnamon/vanilla & quite a whiff of alcohol - (it's 15.2%)
Palate: Cherries & fruit, Figs, Blackberries, prone to call it a typical Zin. Smooth tannins with some acidity - medium bodied.
Overall: Good value for money ($16.81 in NY). Would buy again.

Superb Sancerre - difficult to find in the US - but buy one if you can!

Color: Straw
Nose: sour milk, sweaty, boiling cabbage, rotting fruit
Palate: Grapy, bubble gum, medium body, sweeter than we were expecting, lime - leaves phlegm like coating at back of throat (like grape juice)
Overall: Sweet, medium body wine. A summer drink. Goes well with spicy poultry dishes. Good value.
White - Off-dry

Color: Straw
Nose: Floral bouquet predominately of primrose, hints of daffodil & tulip. Green apples, peach and slight mineral/vegetal undertones.
Palate: Bright fruit - pineapple, lemon, grapefruit. Light to medium bodied style. Perfectly balanced. Forward sweetness (but not sickly), low acidity, finishing with very slight bitterness.
Overall: A pleasure to drink. Our favorite Riesling to date. Fantastic as an aperitif or with dessert. We fought over the last glass! (Bought three more bottles after this tasting).

Color: Clear, Yellow.
Nose: Buttery/Vanilla, sweaty socks, damp wood, wet stone.
Palate: Odd taste - stone/mineral unlike most Chardonnays. Was expecting it to be much smoother on the palate from the nose, but was more acidic/bitter. Full bodied, but unbalanced - overly tart
Overall: Would not buy again - more like a bad Sav. Blanc.

Color: Clear, pale.
Nose: Light floral notes - pleasant.
Palate: Despite being a varietal, Riesling dominates - which didn't bother me. Hints of Turkish Delight - enjoyable.
Overall: Easy drinking summer drink, holds crisp light flavor to the last glass. Would buy again for same price ($11.74).
