We really enjoyed this, QPR is very high. Nice fruit with peach and red apple. What comes thru is the mineral and limestone, a great backbone or edge to this wine.

Excellent, we did it with duck breast in a cherry sauce. A great match, cherry, lite fruit and a touch of pepper. Might get better with time but hard to resist now.

We really enjoyed this wine, we served it with chicken in Riesling sauce. A great match. Slightly rich with very interesting fruit tones, pear and apple with a little very lite citrus.

We had this with braised chicken thighs with figs, it was a wonderful match. It will probably get better over the next 5-8 years but can be opened now and enjoyed,

Disappointing, lean and very linear. Needs more fruit. We doubt it will get much better, one can always hope.

Not complex, but for pizza night a nice wine, QPR about right.

This was great with duck, old time Burgundy with good fruit. Cherry and lite berries, but enough richness to balance the firm tannins. Great now but could easily last another ten years.

Not over the hill but no reason to wait. Deep rich flavors, fruit not dominate but rounded out and balanced. We did with steak de Burgo, excellent.

Old style Burgundy with tight fruit, limestone and great balance. We had it with pork tenderloin and roasted grapes, wonderful. Still a few years left, but can easily be enjoyed now.

Very nice old style Bordeaux, needs a little air. Recommend with food, we did it with beef short ribs. Leaner style with leather and a little sweetness on the nose. Leather and dark fruits flavors. Drinking nicely now but should be good for another five years.

A touch sweet and a little round, but a nice surprise for a sparkler from Illinois. Some acidity, easy to drink.
