Cork soaked from the wine but it held up and was very tasty. Enjoyed this blast from the past.

Old vino that held out pretty well. Not a perfect bottle but was good to have an old wine.

Amazing, this is a Napa CAB. (period) Thick, tannins laying back and so enjoyable.

So this bottle is currently available for well over $100 but we paid much less. It is a rich deep Zin from a MT Veeder vineyard and YES IT WAS GOOD!

blah... a good version of Barefoot merlot.. If you like a great middle of the ground blend then this is for you if you are looking for a "uncagged" cab blend this is not your wine...

typical NC red wine, not sweet but not very heavy. In the realm of NC reds this was pretty good but needed about 60 minutes to really express itself!

nice fruit, tannins had faded quite a bit... if you are that type of wine drinker... wait but I would consume it now...

If I was scoring by the dollar this would be a 93.. this wine was a great wine and would love to have it again and again and again!

ample wine for the money..Not a bad wine but nothing of the caliber we are used to. I would always consider this blend for a dinner party. The fruit makes it seem sweet but is actually dry pleasing the palets of all to a some degree.

Nice wine that actually has many more years to meet perfection face to face. While the first hour of this mountain wine seemed just a bit prunny as always the last glass was a year or two away from the P word, perfection. Good amount of fruit with plenty of tannins to hold onto this wine a bit longer.

A solid medium bodied pinot with just enough fruit and tannins to enjoy with a light meal to a grilled pork chop.

Nice wine from Napa... wish it held out a little longer. Towards the end of the hour of drinking it the wine kind of drifted off to sleep.

Wow, Sonoma at its best... I think an expert can detect the Napa/Sonoma difference but the average Joe would be delighted by this wine!

Nice wine, great for being a NY state wine... I enjoyed the bright fruits and the leathery texture.

A little past its prime but still a great wine. Who knows though, might peak out again in a couple of years.

Owned this bottle for about 5 hours, now it is gone. Good Sauterne but does not have the depth that I would expect. I will consider repurchase and putting it away and let it age like a sauterne should.

Not very much what I was looking for but a really good wine just not that rich earthy pinot though.

Very fruity and kind of smoky. Turned into a very fruity sweet wine. I wonder what the RS is on this?

The acid seemed a little bit much, not sure if it was just my pallet.

This is perhaps one of the best Sonoma Cab's I have ever had. Rich textures note the presence of mountain fruit with a nice dark berry presence.

YUMMMM?///

This lodi Petit Syrah blend is most delicious and the score is based upon the known price. If I was blind tasting the finish would have resulted in a lower score since there was just a little bit off but for the $$ it was what I expect from Lodi!

Wow, this 2006 could hold on until 2024, Delicious fruits with plenty of "ample" tannins let you enjoy this now with food or years latter with what ever you choose!

A little too much fruit and not enough acid but still a great wine. If you like fruit presence in your wine than grab this blueberry pie from the winery only.

This wine still has a bit to go until it comes into its own if it ever does. There is a bit a fruit there but it is not coming out to play quit yet.
