A nice, dark, jammy cab with mild tannins and big fruit flavors. A great cab to keep on the rack as a "go to" when you don't want to pull out one of the big dogs but still want a nice bottle of wine.

A light, easy drinking Pinot with good red fruit flavors. Fine for someone who enjoys a nice Pinot, also works for someone that doesn't care what their drinking. I wouldn't seek it out but I certainly wouldn't turn down a glass.

This was really opened up on day two. When first opened, it was wound pretty tight and only displaying some earthy, dirty qualities. On day two the fruit started to come through more and was tasting much more balanced.

A really beautiful red wine - wish I had taken the time to review when it was fresh in my mind - I just remember really enjoying it!

A really nice Sauv. Blanc true to the NZ style - lots of grapefruit, green pepper, and vegetal notes. Great summer patio wine.

This wine never disappoints. Was a bit wound up when first opened, so would suggest decanting, but tasting even better on day 3 of being open. Getting some raisiny qualities on the nose and nice spice on the palette.

Purchased on Naked Angels - hope to be able to find again someday - really enjoyed this one. Great flavor for the price. Good tannins, good fruit flavor. Drank with a steak on day 2 and loved it even more!

Didn't love this wine. Tasting a little metallic to me. Some decent tartness and green fruit flavor, but something on the finish that I'm not caring for.

Drank on the deck paired with a shrimp scampi that had some heirloom tomatoes cooked into it, so it had a little more acid and heartiness than a normal shrimp scampi. Paired beautiful. The fruit notes complimented the red pepper in the scampi, the acid and salinity complimented the shrimp. I hope to be able to find this wine again.

Didn't leave me wanting more, but didn't hate it either. I got it on a buy one/get one sale so didn't think it was bad for the price, but probably wouldn't pay full price.

My thoughts Mirror others - it wasn't awful, but not all that interesting. A bit flat and lacked dynamic, but it would be a safe wine to serve at a dinner party for someone wants "whatever white wine you have." I wouldn't turn up my nose at it, but didn't rock my socks either.

I did not like my first sip. Let breathe a while, it became more enjoyable. Left a half bottle to finish next day - loving it now!

If someone had handed me a glass of this wine, I would have had no problem finishing it and enjoying it. But since I was taking the time to study the wine, I won't be as complimentary. Just didn't have a whole lot going on. Some nice spice notes on the front of the palette, but not much for fruit or depth. I would drink it again, but I wouldn't buy it.

I really enjoyed this Zin for the price. We had this with some fantastic GA BBQ (brisket and pulled pork) and it just really worked. Great fruit flavor without being overly jammy. Let it breathe a little bit - it gets better!

Drank over three days - every day was better than the previous. Probably could have laid down longer, and definitely wound tight and needed some time to breathe. I would suggest decanting if opening soon and finishing in the same sitting. Great bold wine though.

Really enjoyed this Chardonnay - crisp, easy drinking, and light on the oak influence. A nice white wine for a warm summer day.

Probably catching this wine towards the end of its useful life. Tasting extremely earthy and almost gamey. Would pair nicely with a steak topped with mushrooms but not loving it on its own.

I have enjoyed previous vintages of AL more. Not sure if my preferences have changed or their process is different. Easy enough to drink, but I have certainly had better Pinot Noirs.

I would call this a run of the mill, low price point Cab. Easy drinking, but nothing overly exciting about it. I wouldn't seek it out, but certainly wouldn't turn down a glass of it.

I absolutely loved this Champagne! Big notes of yeast and sourdough with a palette that is more of the same. If I could find a loaf of sourdough that tasted like this Champagne I would be in heaven!

I haven't found a Chianti I like yet, so my review is skewed that way. Seemed pretty flat and linear to me though. Very dry. Not much complexity. Didn't do it for me.

If you don't like sweet sparkling, this isn't your thing. Not overly complicated but a good easy drinking sparkling for those that want a super dry sparkling. Great way to kick off a Saturday!

Not an overly complicated wine but good for the price. Good fruity flavors, drier than I would have expected for a Grenache but enjoyable to drink.

Pretty run of the mill Zin. Some good dark fruit flavors with a bit of peppery notes. Didn't blow my mind, but an easy drinking wine.
