A most excellent Super Tuscan! Aromas of cherry and cocoa. The tannin structure is perfect and with a long finish compliments the wine!

I do not normally rate wines in this price range this high! I look for bold spicy reds with a long finish. Wines with a moderate tannin structure and spice in the nose. Thus wine hit a home run. Very balanced and minimal dryness. The finish is superb!

A most excellent blend of Cab and Malbec! Earth tones and dark fruit aroma! The taste is a bit of an explosion! The mid range tannins bring out the earthiness perfectly! The finish is a perfect blend of long lasting tannin and again dark fruit! For a $40 restaurant purchase this is a steal!

The dark fruit and pepper on the nose is inviting! A hint of fruit forward with a moderate tannin finish! This wine is a pleasant surprise and will pair extremely well with pizza I have ordered. Sins have become so pizza friendly! The body is that of a spicy bold Pinot, the finish has a hint of spice and dark fruit as well.

Interesting, not as bold as I prefer, the finish is moderate. I prefer longer. Still a solid Tuscan.

Profound structure! Tobacco and tar on nose. Very long finish with ample tannins. Top 10 all time for me personally. The spice has a hint of burn that is simply fabulous.

Very interesting red! Love the Mourvèdre grape! The fruit forward taste is pleasant, hints at sweet but is not. The forward lasts long and is complimented by a very balanced tannin Structure! If this were allowed to open up at all it would drink more elegant than it already is.

Dark plum colr,sense of spice and dryness.
Begins with a dark fruit forward and a bit dry.
Moderate tannin structure with better than fair finish. Lingers a bit.
Perhaps this has aged a bit open at the bar...still a good choice.

The nose is a positive. Classic dark fruit and it lingers. The pour is semi elegant, nothing to write home about; but, legs were decent. Decanted, the nose opened well. The first taste resembles a zin. The finish could be longer. Paired well with blackened snapper and grouper!.

Wow, the complexity for a Merlot! Very bold and long finish. If this was blind I'd think Syrah. Dark intense fruit and forward. Moderate tannins that highlight and do not last! Absolute best Merlot to date for me!

Intense beginning with a more than moderate tannin structure.
The dark fruit explosion is long lasting with ample acidity.
The overall finish makes this a great wine,

Dark fruit bouquet and color. Fairly bold on the nose with a subtle earthiness.
A Super Tuscan at its best. Juicy with moderate tannins. Long lasting on the palate.

Nose of fresh citrus with dry notes.
I don't rate whites high very often. A solid 89! Only a mild dryness (Secco) and great lack of sweetness with little tart. Thus would pair fantastic with blackened or Jerked Seafood. A better hit with a Chorizo tapas!

Interesting, very hammy nose, nice!
The palate boasts a lingering consistent balanced slightly smokey and slightly more fruit . All balanced with a minerality for a long elegant finish . Everything I've been told abot Pinots is drink with in 5 years. Window says longer.

An excellent blend with a powerful alcohol aroma that softens as it opens. If you decant it would be faster. The Bordeaux blend is long on the palate and paired well with a spicy flat iron steak. I am a member of this wine club so I knew what I was ordering. A little pricey in a restaurant $60 but a treat none the less! You could dress thus down as a table wine or up with elegance. The length on the palate makes this wine.

First taste was questionable.
The med tannins carry this longer finish. Dark fruit and hint of smoke. A little earthiness. For $12 this us a good value.

Interesting. nose has complexity. Hoping it has some boldness. Fruit forward on palate and a hint of sweetness. This is my first Chilean Pinot.
Finish is okay, pairing it with a Pork Belly appetizer. Should be good.

An interesting blend of Syrah, Sangiovese, Merlot, and Cabernet! The body is structured and flows thick ;good). The nose of dark fruit and wood is pleasant. The Sangiovese is the dominant start. The Syrah spices the mild tannin long lasting cab/Merlot blend. This wine would improve with decanting. Average cost in store of $46 is extremely cheap for a wine of this caliber!

This was a treat! Everything from nose to finish, (long).
Paired with crispy eggplant pancakes, spicy tuna roll, and bakes brie.
Dark fruit on the nose, moderate tannins!
$49 in a restaraunt. Good value. $20 in a store, a steal!
Buy it, serve it!

This has a nose of a great cab. There was a lingering "off green" finish preventing an adequate taste. I let this open in a glass and it did change with a spicy Chix ap. The dark fruit came through after 20 min lessening the green finish. After. 30 min. This bottle needs decanting to be appreciated.

A most interesting nose of cocoanut and vanilla. Wow, for a Tempranillo.
A nice fruit forward start, just enough to get your tastes interested.
The Tannins are less than expected and the finish better than good (not long). Mid berry overtones makes this a very decent wine at $16 a bottle.
