Beautiful nose, fresh, lively, bright fruit flavors. Shocking that it was a bottle of 15 year-old Champagne. Not sure I'll run across a bottle of this again but wouldn't hesitate to purchase if given the opportunity.

from a 375ml... Very big, dark and brooding. Still plenty of grip and power behind this wine as it came across as stll rather youthfull.

Tropical fruit nose with honeysuckle notes that continue on through to the mouth while displaying impressive weight and complexity. Well balanced acidity producing a round mouthfeel. Very burgundian in style, not your typical California Chard. Would match wonderfully with a seafood and cream sauce dish.

Taken to Kincaid's for dinner. The wine had a pronounced oxidized nose and taste that blew off after about 1/2 hour. Honey on the nose followed by some lemon, apple and cantelope (?) flavors. Some sherry notes remained on the moderate finish. This wine was good but perhaps would have been more to our liking 3-5 yrs ago. No known storage problems but we've only owned it the last 2 years.

Clear, deep garnet color with scents of bright cherry and cola that follow through on the palate. Well balanced wine with a soft backbone of tannin that gives it the right amount of edge to work with the fruit to produce a long finish. Some secondary wood and spice notes showing. We thought this was one of the best Pinots we've had in the last year..

The color is a light hay with a greenish tinge. The nose is airy and faint with hints of lemon and white grapefruit. Crisp lemon and stone dominates in a wash over the tongue. A very nice Sancerre that I wouldn't hesitate to pick up again.

Served with Lemon and Herbed Pasta and Tomatoes with Grilled Shrimp and Zucchini.

lush wine with oak, butter on the palate giving way to pleasing fruit notes of peach and melon and a surprising nutty characteristic. Food acidity and finished strong pleasing two non-chard drinkers.

Simple, clean with classic, but not inspiring, varietal notes. Nothing stood out with this wine but it was an easy drinking quaffer served with a simple pasta with vegetable marinara. Good mid-week wine.

Dark purple color with scents of anise and blueberry, though a bit hot on the nose. Sweet black licorice on the tongue but overblown with wood tannin creating a lasting impression. Too unbalanced and woodsy for my tastes.

Deep color tone with a sweet oak/raisin note on the nose. The alchohol also came off strongly on the nose. Very fruit forward dominated by blackberries and candied cherries. Med. weight in the mouth. Served too warm.

pale golden in color and the chardy yeast overpowers the nose... the bubbles don't seemed to dance as much as froth upon hitting the tongue. Lots of full, buttery flesh with some notes of apple.

Good under $20 cab... some cassis, blackberry and sweet oak with subtle tannins evolved into an easy drinking wine and good QPR. The wine was a touch green but not undrinkably so.

Big candied fruit bomb. I'm sure it will mellow and improve with age but it doesn't give any indication it will age long at all. Second time I've had this wine and it's just not my style of Zin.

Nice ruby hues offering up cedar and fruit on the nose. Integrated tannins and medium mouthfeel with a decent finish for a wine in this price range. Smooth, not overly complex but very drinkable wine showing wonderfully right now.

Gorgeous Pinot. blueberries, blackberries, some spice notes and a full mouth feel preceed a long finish. This is a fantastic pinot.

Drank one week before our wedding to celebrate 5-yrs together. The wine was dense and hearty but had mellowed out its tannins. I don't believe it's getting any better than this but it's drinking very well right now.

Mineral and stone on the nose to start the wine may have been a bit too cold at first. The fruit didn't come out until served with food and then the fruit exploded on the senses. Apricot and some pear flesh accent. Wine coats the tongue and goes down smooth. A good amount of acidity and paired well with our food. My first Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc but definitely not the last.

Served with Lemon-mint bulger risotto and garlic shrimp followed by fromage d'affinois.

Open and drank from the bottled. Nice deep garnet in color, mushroom and olives dominated the nose which were met with bright cherry flavors upon initially tasting the wine. Some spice to the fruit and tannins that indicate the wine could (and should) stand some more time in the cellar. Not bad drinking now but I expect it to improve.

Drank with Matt and Brooke. Deep color to the edge of glass, dark fruits (blackberries and black cherry) with good mountain fruit character. Earthy, moderate spice and medium finish with soft and integrated tannins make this wine great to drink now but should last a few more years.

Served with two aged goudas (one cow's milk, one goat's milk), goat cheese and brie.
