Full bodied and big without being obnoxious. Ripe apple.
Red
Lean and structured style zin. Peppery and herbal notes.
Red
Bigger in style compare to other Gary Farrell wines, but still juicy acidity to balance. Floral with cherry.
Red
Nicely balanced, herbal and cherry notes. Seems like a versatile wine that will pair with many foods.
Red
Nice wine, a bit on the spicy side.
Red
Ripe, jammy fruit. Delicious.

2015 La Cave D'Augustin Florent Graves Bordeaux Supérieur Red Bordeaux Blend (view label images)
Nose of poopy diaper. Otherwise fairly simplistic, fruity upfront, medium tannin throughout.
Red
Dark and ripe, but not overdone. Full bodied, blueberry, finishes with medium tannin. Tastes like a more expensive wine. Great value.
Red - Fortified
Lighter dessert red. Not as thick or dark as a port would be, but pleasant to drink with chocolate.
Red
Jammy, big dark fruits. Smooth tannins.
Red
Well balanced, ready to drink Cab blend. Tannins not overpowering, decently fruited.
Red
Light, bright, and easy to drink. Not dark or complex (nor is it trying to be).

Maybe got a bad bottle but this was pretty awful. Almost brown colored, prematurely oxidized?

Faded, but I'm really enjoying it now. Has somewhat of a tea-like quality to it.

It had all the "sweet" notes of previous reviews, at the same time dry. Unfortunately, I think it had been oxidized as it had sherry notes to it.

Not bad. Round texture, oak in the front, ending with some pronounced bitterness.

Tried it again, consistent with previous notes. This time noticed a marked salinity, and was delicious with dátiles wrapped with bacon.

Sweet and almost port-like. Pruney with soft tannins. Still has the fruit going on in the front, but the alcohol hits harder in the finish.

Was this corked? It tasted off and musty, with a lot of acidity and not much in the way of flavor.

Delicious. Still pretty young. Started with some medicinal taste but with air, became quite nice.

Still good, but maybe on the way down? Less fruit and structure than I remember.

Fantastic chardonnay. Ripe but not over-the-top apple and tropical fruit, caramel and vanilla. Very nicely balanced. Paired richly with butter poached lobster.

I don't like it. Smells great like the other chenin blancs like I've had before (pear/almond?), but the taste is very sour. Bracing acidity.

good wine! Smooth tannins and ripe fruit, maintaining acidity. Something is a bit harsh on the finish, but still better than I had expected

Wow, a lot of stuff going on in this wine. Intense, with good fruit and acidity, as well as the creamy butter/oak thing going on as well.

Actually pretty good, especially for the price. Smells of dark cherries and spice, with moderate acidity. Somewhat of a coarse "woody" flavor on the finish.

Nice big dark fruit and fine tannins. The alcohol taste is on the verge of getting out of hand, but overall pretty good.

Interesting, but not sure I actually like it. Slightly effervescent, minerally, very dry, with a bitter finish. Was expecting something easier to drink, being a rose.

Not really feeling this one. Lacking richness and depth. Tasted somewhat thin, green and bitter.

Had the familiar smell of beaujolais (to me it's somewhat breadlike), but upon tasting, it was definitely a more serious beaujolais than I've experienced. Has depth and fine grained tannins, but also the pleasant juiciness and acidity you would expect from beaujolais.

Started out well, kinda dull in the middle, and had somewhat of an alcoholic finish. It started tasting better after warming up.

Interesting wine. Has a hint of Chinese green lentil soup or red beans and stone fireplace.

There was something off in this wine, but I couldn't really pinpoint it. Maybe it was over the hill?

Tastes okay. Fairly acidic backbone, with mushroom overtones. Seems like it's a bit past its prime.
