Started to go downhill. Surprisingly given the high alcohol and full body structure of the wine. Drink now before it is too late!

Nice balance wine with fruit and a bit of character. Short aftertaste and not a full body wine

Good wine but way to modern style for a Chateauneuf. Not for those that love the traditional ones!

Not a bad wine but it tasted a lot better at the wine shop than right now (9 months later). Not sure I bought the same vintage! It is good but at $40 per bottle I can find a 10 options way better...

What an example of California Cab. Simply excellent! Fruit, nuance, oak all well blended. It is still young at 24 years, should continue to improve for another 7-10 years.

Young and bold. Need a year or two for tannins to mellow. Complex and rich that must be enjoyed with a steak.

Simply one of the best Argentinian Malbecs I ever had. Big, full body, graphite, long aftertaste, very enjoyable.

Opened it too early. Gripy tannins. It should be laid down for three years minimum...

A modern Rioja that keeps a lot of the traditional values! Very good and can last 5-8 years.

A very approachable St Emilion! Enjoyable with loads of fruit and depth. Just enough nuance to be identified as a Bordeaux.

AN incredibly modern expression of chateauneuf. The grenache and mouverde are in your face. Good depth and nuance but lacking the barnyard of traditional chateauneufs.

Spectacular! Finese, long after taste, delicate flavors and yet full body. Drink now or cellar for 10+ years.

Balanced and easy to drink. Enjoyable but nothing like the 1999 or 2001 vintage. This one has become more mass produced and despite the good quality it does not have the uniqueness of prior vintages.

OK but not as good as prior vintages. Sort of middle of the road pinot.
