had at winery tasting room on Cranford. Dry riesling made in Alsatian style. Really smooth easy drinker. Would go well with food. Crisp Apples ... refreshing.

Had as part of a Pluckemin Inn Virtual wine tasting. While we did not like as much as the Dominique Roger (domaine Du Carrou) Sancerre, still thought it a solid bottle. Definitely on the dryer side of French Chenin... was more middle of the road. Seemed like it would go good with food, was okay to just sip as well. Did not have a wow factor, and i think it needed the touch of sweetness on the attack before the acidity...

Thi was one of my favorite Sauvignon Blancs that i have had in a long time. Clean and crisp, fresh tasting. stone fruit maybe hint of citrus. Had at Pluckemin Inn virtual wine tasting and would definitely buy again. Great summer wine
Rosé
sipped with apps, very rich flavor. Cherry, maybe a bit of citrus. Definitely on the more masculine side of Roses. Very well done and would go great with food as well.
Red
Nice modern expression of Sangiovese. Gives me the best of both worlds,red fruit on the ricjer side, but not too over the top... very tasty and great QPR at the $12 Last bottles tariff

Decanted for about 45 min, and had with Filet Mignon. Wow!! This was stunning. Rich Dark fruit, with a hint of pice. Full bodied, it went spectacular with steak. Nice acidity, and tannins indicating still a long life.

First wine in a bit that made me say wow, upon first sip.
White
Crisp and light, Mrs. Coupe loved it. Great for sipping, or having with a light meal.

She requested I get more
Rosé - Sparkling
Crisp, refreshing strawberry...Great QPR

PnP and had with chicken cutlet dinner. I think HeyThatsLife's review nailed it. I got medium+ bodied wine with plums as predominant flavor(a bit on the stewed side). Earthy syrah seemed dominant flavor. Was not a bad bottle to drink, but not sure I would buy again. Seems to be a lot more tuscan wines at this price point that I would rather have.

A bit disappointed as this came from Monsanto...
White
Very tasty and refreshing sitting by pool and sipping. Though not a great QPR
Rosé - Sparkling
only had a glass with no food at my nieces' kindergarten step up celebration. Racy and crisp strawberry flavors seemed pretty good. More detailed notes wit ha later bottle.

PnP and had with burgers. Sleek and feminine with cherry red fruit. Light bodied with good acidity, very good and easy to drink. Mrs. Coupe also liked it a lot.

Decanted about 30 minutes, was looking for a somewhat light red, and the 12.8 abv enticed me. Delivered as promised, fairly light to mid bodied, red fruit, sour cherry profile. Went well enough with my Filet Mignon, though probably not the wine for a more fattier cut of steak. Easy to drink and fairly tasty. Mrs. Coupe also thought it quite good.
Rosé
Delicious Rose, that has a little heft to it.

Unscrewed and poured and enjoyed with Buffalo chicken pizza. Floral notes and some peach and pear flavors. Easy to drink had a little texture to it and struck a nice balance of creaminess and acidity. Super solid QPR at the $10+ or so I paid for it. Will definitely buy more for summer drinking.

PnP (unscrewed the cap actually) and enjoyed with pasta dinner. Decent Dark fruit, light to medium bodied, and easy to drink. Went ok with the food. Decent acidity,fairly low abv & very low sub $8 price make this a really good midweek or party wine. Will definitely rebuy.

Mrs. Coupe also liked. Kudos to my Sister in Law who recommended this to us.

Tasted as part of a Clio vertical tasting (2008, 2010, and 2017). Was poured in glass for 15 min before drinking .

My 3rd place finisher, which I guess means that these all need a little time to integrate. Still a big rich hedonistic dark fruit wine. And very good.

Tasted as part of a Clio vertical tasting (2008, 2010, and 2017). Was poured in glass for 15 min before drinking . Probably my 2nd favorite of tasting (after the 2008). Was actually a little more restrained than other 2, with some acidity. Still dark rich hedonistic and big. Really liked it

My favorite wine of the tasting, big rich hedonistic dark fruit. If you like an elegant feminine wine, this is not for you. As big as it was, it was balanced and tasty. Definitely more of a sipping wine than something to have with a meal. Mrs. Coupe described it as almost port like.

PnP after doing a tasting. Thia was really good. Red fruit, well balanced, a little spice and a nice long finish. Great QPR and a rebuy for sure
Red
Not bad, the best of my Naked Wine shipment so far. Tasted like a cab, medium bodied red fruit.

PnP and had with Chicken Parm. Really good effort, this bottle had a bit more funk and earth with its sour cherry underpining.great QPR

Light bodied red fruit. A bit grapey.. meh, not bad but a bit overpriced imho

PnP and sipped without food. Sour cherry and great balance . Really good wine, would highly recommend

Meh might be giving it too much credit. The boys can drink the last bottle by the fire. Will not rebuy.

A bit disjointed on the pop. After an hour or so in the decanter, Mrs Coupe said it was much improved

2nd bottle of night after Robert Foley Griffin (not the best order). Was pleasantly surprised at how good this was considering how little I paid. Fairly light, well balanced with red fruit. Would go great with a variety of foods, and was pretty good just sipping by the fire. Good QPR, will buy again.

PnP (which was probably not the best move ), and had with homemade pizza. First time I have had the Griffin in a few years, and the 2015 is still the same big assed dark fruited fantastic beast itvhas always been . Definitely not for the faint of heart, I think this wine is best enjoyed while just sipping and not with food. Blackberries and cassis and lush flavor with soft tannins. May not be everyone's cup of tea, but fantastic at what it tries to do.

I agree with note below. Lightweight green apples and citrus with minerality . Excellent summer wine, but perhaps a bit pricey for what it delivers. Very enjoyable but only a so so QPR

Literally could be the post child for generic red wine. There is very little chance you could identify this as Cabernet Sauvignon if tasted blind.

Inexpensive purchase from Wine Insiders, That was at least drinkable. Would not purchase again

PnP both bottles, and had with pizza. I got a fruit forward, stewed red fruits. Maybe some plum. Interesting that there was a bit of acid to keep everything in balance. Last glass was best, so definitely decant. Good effort at a good price, would buy again.
Red
Bright cherry, drinks lighter than its ABV... Really good

PnP, surprising this wine had browned. Seemed like it was on it last legs.. maybe something a little off. Drinkable, but nowhere near as good as my previous bottle of this... No score, but some disappointment
White
Chilled and had with Chicken Pot Pie dinner. Solid as always rich textured white that is more than some light summer fare. One of my favorite Pinot Grigios, and a good value.

PnP, dark fruit...a bit too big and disjointed for me. a bit of an aftertaste. Not a big fan... Not sure it was worth the $8+ I paid. A lot of better options even at that price point
Red
Light cherry fruit, pretty good QPR.

PnP and had with homemade pizza. Definitely needs airtime or more cellar time. A serious chianti, that reminded my of a BdM. Leather cherry, acidity, and some grit. Good now, but will be even better with some tlme

2007, 100% Syrah, from Ciel de Cheval... if you like a soft delicate bottle of wine, this might not be your best choice. However if you like a big ass, big taste full throttle wine... come on down...Drinking unbelievable right now. Big , inky black and blue fruit hitting you right in the face...just simply delicious. Looks like it still has plenty of life..

PnP, and thought this was really really good. Well balanced sour cherry, medium bodied, great mouthfeel. The phrase iron fist wrapped in Velvet glove comes to mind. Great QPR at $15 or so . Will definitely be a rebuy. Sorry I only bought one bottle

PnP, from the level of translucency evident from the pour into the glass, you could see this was going to be a very delicate light bodied pinot noir. I believe ABV was 12.5%, and even that number seemed high. Despite its light body, still had plenty of refreeshing red fruit flavor. Easy to drink, great warm weather fare. Would definitely buy again at its $17 price.

PnP, and drank while sitting by fire. Fairly light bodied and easy to drink, with red fruit and just a good taste. Won't blow your mind, but a great QPR for the sub $10 i paid. I will definitrly buy again. Good food for either food or just sipping, and something that would eem to appeal to a wide audience.

PnP and am amazed at the quality of this. Well balanced on the feminine side . Vibrant red fruit, delicious. This might be one of the best QPRs I have had in some time. If this comes back on wine Library wine text, I am sending it in...

Over the course of the past year this bottle has really evolved for the better. Has filled out a bit more, and dark fruits really shine thru. Pretty good

PnP and had with burgers.

Rhudak review is spot on. I will say this, last glass was the best glass. I thought this was fairly full bodied and needed some air time. Dark brooding ripe fruit.

Give it some air time. Would probably go really well with a steak.
