Burgundy meets CA. This is Kistler quality at almost half the price. Fantastic acidity and minerality. Didn't want to stop drinking this... wish I bought more.

Vibrant, deep golden hue. Thick, fleshy fruit -- beautifully balanced and rich owing to the high alcohol content. This is a powerful expression of white rhone fruit meeting CA alcohol levels.

Past it's prime. Worst wine I've head the pleasure of trying in the past year. Thin and flat.

For the price there isn't anything in Argentina that can beat this.

What a pleasant surprise. Not your typical zin. Great bouquet, smooth tannins, nice and jammy. This is a crowd pleaser and a great value. Comes close to the Suhr Luchtel zin which I also enjoy

1st pour - leather quality, slate and cola with a jammy rush. The bouquet wasn't as pleasant as I'd hoped but the wined opened up over night. Enjoyed more day 2. Good value but other wines I prefer for 18

Great value for a white burgundy. Crisp, good minerality.

Signature Mollydooker. Fruit bomb with structure. Tastes of jam, cocoa, flowers. I think I still prefer Blue Eyed Boy but a delicious wine. Needs some time to open up.

Vacqueyras a solid entry level introduction to the Rhone Valley. A great value.

Well structured and balanced. Sonoma has a lot to learn from Oregon.

One of the better value shiraz's I've had in a while. Definitely worth every penny.

Great bottle of wine for the value. A silky Grenache... Not what I'm used to from Spain but it works!

Ehh decent. Lacks refinement. It's a good value though.

Jammy. Lacks an element of structure that makes it an 85 and not a 90. Decent value.

Agree with existing reviews. Dense rich colors but lacks finish. Nice bottle to sip for $10 but you can find better.

Only 650 cases produced. Excellent central coast Grenache. Silky to drink with just the right hint of body. Sure to please all palates. A tad bit pricey.

Absolutely delicious Grenache from the central coast. Great for poultry or seafood, well balanced, smooth to drink. A great wine for the 16 dollar price point it was purchased at. Highly recommend.

Very pleasant wine. Lacks a certain structure to the body to truly make it a great wine.
