Absolutely fantastic bottle, dark garnet with a touch or rust, the nose is explosive (even better after 3h+ decant), still firm tannin and very long finish.

Full bodied, this wine has an amazing potential. Tannins are firm and this mag required at least 5 hours of air time. Lets wait at least five years before the next one (impossible I know)

Light garnet, lovely nose, quite tight and high acidity level. Will be delicious in a few years.

Very well made cab from a great vintage. Dense ruby color, dark fruit and good balanced between acidity and tannin which makes it very enjoyable now in addition to great potential.

Pale Ruby (cherry), some reserve about the nose. Nice, fresh, bright on the palate (and a little short).

Lots of oak, definitely a crowd pleaser. Medium to short finish. Good value for a sub 20$ wine.

You just cant go wrong with this 20$ bottle of wine. Paired with roast beef and it was delicious. Made the top 100 WS.

A very solid classic pinot noir from California. Shows a lot of depth and structure. I would give it a couple years down the cellar to improve finesse.

Very weird nose of barnyard coming out from this first bottle. I hope this was a defect. Quite intense for a Ventoux.

Very tight and greenish on the first day but much better 24h later. This wine needs air and lots of it to show its dept.

Very nice bottle right from the start. I would say medium bold and silky tannin which make this wine great for dinner. Lovely.

I must agree with the 91 given by a WA for this wine. Perfect wine to pair with food, a very smooth bordeaux blend.

Un peu de difficulté a retrouver la belle grenache si présente dans la première bouteille dégustée. Tout de même un excellent rapport qualité prix pour un vin de semaine.

Un peu décevant encore une fois. Plutôt fermé au départ, vert, note de cèdre. S'améliore après quelques heures mais sans plus. Toute de même une belle intensité qui en fait un vin agréable pour le repas.

Le vieux Donjon est un excellent vin après quelques heures en carafe. Toutefois, il y a des différences notoires entre les bouteilles qui me rendent perplexes.

Very bold wine from Puglia. Great nose and very long finish. Excessive sweetness and very high alcohol % left me puzzled about this one.

Absolutely fantastic Brunello. I must agree with previous reviews, keep this wine for at least 5 more years in the cellar. Great color and very long finish.

Lovely wine, long and very silky. The oak was present but subtile. Wish I had some left.
