Red
Always satisfying, and this vintage is no different.
Red
Dark berries, violets, smooth, fresh.

Way too jammy and overdone. Artificial-seeming fruit. I'm disappointed. A rare clinker from Garagiste.

A little disappointing. Not much fruit, more savory, cooking spice, a bit bitter. Some apricot and stone fruit, just a tad. 100% Marsanne.
Red
A bit like a Cabernet but lighter and more vegetal. Actually lovely for such a black-fruited and inky wine.
Red
Dense cherry, mushroom, underbrush. Medium tannin, medium (+) acidity, long finish. Concentrated, really pops. This is drinking beautifully right now, but you could cellar it too. A real find.
Red
Light, floral, a little thin. Crunchy cranberry, a little cherry. It drinks well and easily but there's not a lot of there there. Maybe it needs more cellar time. All in all, quaffable and quenching but not as complex as some other Fleuries I've had (Dutraive, Lucien Lardy, et al.).
Red
Okay, esp. for $6.99 retail.
Red
Hearty Barbera. Medium tannin, medium (+) acidity, nice finish. Sour cherry on the palate, a bit jammy. Salty. Red berries. Very tasty. Good food wine.
Red
The requisite cherry, cranberry with a hint of orange rind. Elegant, reticent, well-proportioned. Classic Beaujolais.
Red
Plum, cherry, chocolate. Lots of nice low-alc, high-acid Merlots coming out of Long Island.
Red
Pure & noble Bordeaux, sans spoof.
Red
Cherry, strawberry, raspberry, a little damp earth. Fruit > oak.
White
Intense nose. Bready, leesy. Medium (+) acidity.
Mouth-coating, citrus, smooth, oily, high-toned.
Long finish.
A great wine.
Red
Rich, smooth, very tasty.
Red
Very ripe, almost sweet fruit. Cooking spice. Soft tannins, medium acidity. Very fruit-forward and drinkable. Everything you expect from a southern Rhone and then some.
White
Presses all my buttons: creamy, round, and full-bodied, medium (+) acidity, and a long juicy finish.
Red
Plums N' Roses. And cherries and smoke... Such a good wine!
Red
A rare dud from Selection Massale. Variable acidity threw me, had a sour taste that never went away. The acid and tannins just couldn't cross the bridge to each other. Perhaps I should have waited another 6-12 months on this, judging from other notes here.
Red
Cherries, strawberries, a little bit of oak. Sweetish finish. Not especially complex, but quite gulpable just the same.
Red
A right-bank taste-alike with Tannat instead of Merlot. Plums, black cherries, currants. Full-bodied with a velvety grip. A bargain at <$13.00
Red
Juicy, concentrated, mouth-watering. This is a good year for Nouveau.

Dry, lemon peel, almost gin-like botanicals. Smooth, satiny, hard to pin down. A come-hither white Burgundy.

That said, I may have opened this too early. Perhaps it could benefit from a big more aging as it is a bit elusive right now.
Red
Plums-- first red, then purple-- sour cherries, and a hint of something extra. Grapefruit? Cranberry? Black pepper? It keeps changing. Compulsively drinkable yet serious. For fans of Spatburgunder, Blaufrankisch, and the darker side of Cru Beaujolais. Also, a stealthy Thanksgiving choice.
Red
Enjoyable, versatile, easy-drinking. On the lighter side of Malbec. Fresh, medium/medium (+) acidity.
Red
Multi-colored leaves. All the Bourgogne stuff, earthy, foresty, cherries 'n' red berries, plus a hint of orange peel. Light in the mouth but a deep, lingering finish. The perfect autumn Pinot.
Red
Yes, Virginia, there's a barnyard in the Languedoc! Funky nose blows off, revealing red (mostly) fruit, a tad cooked and figgy, garrigue, chalk, medium (+) finish. Medium/medium (+) tannins soften on the second day, balanced out by acidity and a nubbly-textured mouthfeel.

A total bargain at <$15.
Red
From a warm-weather Superstorm Sandy vintage. Medium ruby color. Aromatic, violets on the nose. Rich, thick, full-bodied. On the palate, plums, blue/black berries, olives, a little chocolate. Soft tannins, medium acidity, medium (+) finish. Larger than usual Long Island Merlot. Give it some air and enjoy!
Red
Delicious. The depth of a Burgundy with the bright entrance of a Beaujolais.
Red
A find. Classic cabernet softened by agiorgitiko. Well balanced. Full-bodied, very smooth and easy going down.
Red
Juicy, tart plums. Lots of acid and a little lingering oak. Yummy!
Red
A bargain at <$15. If you can find this vintage, grab it. Lifted, refreshing acidity, black and blue fruit.
Red
Intense floral nose. Cherries, red fruit. Burgundian nooks and crannies.
Red
Light, bright, tart cherry fruit. More like a Loire gamay, actually.
Red
2014 Lo-Fi Wines Gamay/Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County Gamay-Pinot Noir Blend, Gamay (view label images)
Fresh, bright, sour cherries, stems, a little earth. Medium (+) acidity and a lip-smacking finish.

Lotta cherries! Tasty bargain Pinot.
Red
Liquid sunshine. Dried cherries and berries, juicy and jammy. Gritty texture. Big and satisfying.
Red
Cherry, strawberry, orange peel, leather. Full flavor in a light body. (Does Cru Beaujolais ever fail?)
White
Lemon power! Medium (+) acidity, full body, and a long, satisfying finish. Declassified Meursault.
Red
Tart cherry, cranberry, pepper, earth. Deep and dense. Pretty, almost translucent ruby. Medium (+) acidity, medium tannin, medium (+) finish. Needs time and air.
White
Pineapple, oak, salty minerals, butter, full-bodied with a long finish. Just another oh-mon-Dieu white Burgundy.
Red
"C-O-L-A cola..." West Coast rock & roll. Medium body and tannins, medium (+) acidity and finish.
White
Super minerally. Tastes more like a German wine than a Chardonnay, if that makes any sense. A great deal. Recommended. (Similar to my notes in March.)
Red
Lighter than I expected, dry, a little dusty. Want to try more of this grape.
White
2013 Château Auney l'Hermitage Blanc Graves Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend (view label images)

Full-bodied, dominated by oily, waxy semillon. Also gooseberry tartness and acidity. Minerality adds texture, Really covers all the bases.
