This was very dark crimson red, full bodied with mild tannins. Opened up nicely after some aeration. I could taste the wild berries, currant and a hint of spice. Great restaurant buy and good cellar add.

This was ready to drink, and it was excellent. No decanting needed it is medium to full bodied. It so good I would share it with friends or you may want to keep it for yourself. Grab some of your favourite cheese or a nice medium cigar and enjoy.

This was excellent for a young vintage. With some decanting and aeration it opened up beautifully. The tannins mellowed out and the fruit was perfectly balance, the blend was excellent 70% merlot, 25% Cab Franc, 5% Cab Sauvignon, more on the full body. You could taste the black berries, wild blueberries, and some dark cherry. I would add to more to my cellar as a staple, or this would be a great cellar restaurant buy.

Average, medium bodied, with mild tannins. I found the fruit flat, all I tasted was some spiciness and smoke. Not one of my favourites.

This is the last one in my cellar, great value for the price point. It is well balance the tannins are mild and ready to drink. I would not keep this much longer or it may turn into salads dressing. Overall medium to full bodied with good fruit, classic Bordeaux taste.

I think this bottle was corked, it had a slight raisin like aftertaste. It was dark and full bodied but I could not get past this raisin like taste. This is the second one I tried and both were the same not sure if it is a bad batch.

Was full bodied, with nice blend of tannins and fruit. I could taste dark cherries and wild berries, slight oaks ness and mild smoke. Definitely a cellar addition for summer BBQ or a great restaurant buy.

This was medium bodied with medium tannins. At this price point I was expecting a mor fuller body and better balance. The fruit was nice with some cherries, mocha, and some spiciness. Overall good value but I have had better at this price point.

This was full bodied and medium tannins. I was pleasantly surprised of the quality, never had a Hilltop before. I could taste the wild berries with a hint of vanilla over good wine at the higher end.

This was the last one in my cellar. The tannins were mellow with good fruit and full bodied. There was some sediment in the bottle, use a filter. I did not aerate it was tight at first but did open up after a few hours, I found the overall fruit to be concentrated in dark cherries, wildberries and some earthiness, I also found a mild smoke. Overall great cellar find, to bad it's my last one.

This wine is aging well, I found the acidity to be mild with good fruit. It had some full bodied, with buttery finish. I could taste the apples and pears. Great addition to any cellar or some BBQ dinners this summer.

This was a good value for this price point, may need a few more years to mellow out, need to decant for 3-4 hours. I found full bodied, with medium tannins, some notes of blackcurrant and black cherries overall great restaurant buy.

I was impressed that this white was full bodied for this price point. It had medium acidity with good fruit, I could taste some roasted apples, and lemon with a hint of vanilla, I also like the buttery finish. Great white for the summer season.

This was a lower priced point Brunello so I gave it a try. I found it to be medium bodied with medium tannins, it did open up with some decanting or aeration. I found the fruit to be not too forward, some black berries, wild cherries and mild smoke. Overall a good restaurant buy, however not going to add it to my cellar at this point in time, will try again in a few years.

I found this wine to be more medium bodied, with well balanced fruit and tannins. It did need some time to decant for it to open up. I could taste some blackberries and smoke. It maybe too young should try again in a few years.

This was as full bodied and well balanced between tannins and fruit. The fruit consisted of wild berries, black current, smoke and earthiness. Great restaurant buy.

I was very impressed with this young wine, it was well balanced, the tannins were mild with a little decanting. The fruit was forward with some minerality to the mix. I could taste some black current, wild berries and slight smokiness. The wine is full bodied and smooth.

This wine was full bodied with mild tannins. Nothing special but did have some good blend of fruit and earthiness, I found the fruit to have a slight ripeness to it but would recommend fo anyone who likes a Merlot blend.

This is the last one in my cellar, still enjoyed it from this price point. I think its ready to drink would not wait too long to finish if you have some in the cellar. It is full bodied, mild tannins, and a little chewy. The overall blend is great, not to forward.

For this price point this was an excellent wine, not as full bodied as the Russian River, but an excellent overall production. It was more medium bodied, with good acidity, I could taste lime, peach, and butter notes, with mild smoke. Definitely a great restaurant buy or a picnic in the park...also tasted great with my cigar.

I found this Chardonnay to be well rounded, good acidity, nice body, good fruit and a little buttery, just the way I like it. It had mild smoke overall great wine would add it to your cellar for this summer as a go to for any occasion.

It was medium bodied and mellow, not at all like the real vintage from..La Nerthe Chateau Neuf Du Pape. The fruit and tannins were balanced. I would spend the extra and get the the better vintage.

I was doing inventory last month and found this bottle so I tried it before it goes funky on me. I was so impressed, it was full bodied with some chewy tannins, I could taste the zin which is a nice change from my regular cab. Wish I had more, will definitely add more to my cellar if I can find some.

This was a try for me. I found it medium bodied with medium tannins, however the fruit was a little flat and the overall blend average. I have tried other supertuscans that rocked maybe it was the vintage, will try again.
