a light-bodied easy drinking dry white. Citrus notes with a crisp acidity but nothing exciting. Paid $23 at restaurant so assuming retails under $10.

A full bodied Shiraz with notes of raspberry/blackberry, tobacco, vanilla and oak. While the fruit is detectable on the palate this is by no means your typically Aussie Fruit Bomb which I was expecting (and enjoy from time to time) and was very well structured. There was a lot more going on with this Shiraz than I was expecting from a wine with this packaging and price point. At $10 this has good QPR.

Light notes of strawberry with a nice crisp acidity. The slightest bit of sweetness balances out the tartness. A very nice Summertime sipper especially at less than $10. Would definitely buy more.

First time tasting this style of Italian dessert wine. order glass after dinner at Sette Luna: viscous and amber in color. Powerful nose of Raisin and Honey. The taste was not overly sweet which was nice. Nice after dinner drink.

Order by glass with dinner @ Sette Luna: slightly translucent color with a light to medium body. Lots of cherry and strawberry fruit on the nose. Red fruit continues on the palate with some acidity and medium, smooth tannins. Nothing complex but easy drinking and very enjoyable. Paired well with dinner of Arugula Salad and Agnolotti con Cinghiale (wild boar/mushroom ravioli)

Black Cherry & dark fruit aromas. Cherry and Strawberry came through on the palate. Light bodied and fruity with a lingering finish. Went over well at Thanksgiving Dinner and was enjoyable for 15 dollars. I am generally not a big fan of Pinot and I liked this, so keep that in mind.

Wine was very closed upon pop, but after pour through Vinturri into decanter the nose nose had prominent fruit of cherry and plum. Sour cherry continues on to the palate with a little pepper spice added in. At $8.50 as part of the Cindy 3-pack it is a good value but would not re-buy at the full $20 price.

Absolutely loved this wine and at under $10 it is an outstanding QPR. Citrus notes, nice minerality, and great acid backbone. Will be running out to buy more.

Prominent aromas of raspberry and rose petal. Red fruit notes continued to palate. Nice bubbles. Sweet wine but not cloying as their is a nice balance with the acidity and dryness.

On Day One I ran it through a Vinturi into the decanter and drank over four hours. To me the nose and palate were overwhelmed by black pepper and spicy notes. On Day Two spicy, black pepper is still on the nose but now there were also fake fruit scents that reminded me of strawberry Twizzlers. Fruit was not detectable on the palate, just the same pepper notes. Acidity seemed more pronounced on day two

Dark fruit aroma and flavor but seemed a slight bit hot. There was something I didn't care for that I could not identify, but maybe it was the herbaceous character that others have mentioned.

Drank glass at restaurant. Garnet color with opaque core. I picked up prune notes on the nose while red berries were prominent on the palate. Flavorful, and soft with a long finish made for an enjoyable drink.

Pale yellow color with scents of tropical fruit. A nice acidity on the mid and back palate with a long finish. Very enjoyable.

Dark, opaque core with a strawberry red edge. At uncorking it was giving nothing I could detect on the nose. After an hour in the decant still little on the nose, maybe a little dark fruit. thin, light bodied and no tannins. A little acidity up front but nothing on the mid or back palate. I obviously held on to this bottle too long as previous bottles were much better. I will not give a rating since was not representative of this wine.

Had this wine previously and really enjoyed it. This bottle however all I could detect on the nose was hand soap. The taste was okay with nice bubbles and enough sweetness to balance the acid. But I did not get any of the fruity notes in the nose or taste that the previous bottle had.

I clearly held onto this bottle too long. I enjoyed this wine when buying it back in Jan. 2006 after tasting at the winery. But today it is barely drinkable with nothing on the mid-palate and no finish.

Floral and fruit notes such as pineapple, citrus, and melon. This was my first Albariño so I don't have a point of reference but I really enjoyed this wine and l look forward to trying other examples of this varietal. Served with pork tenderloin medallions in a mango chutney cream sauce.

Aroma full of berries, especially raspberry and strawberry. Pours with a very foamy head. Fruit continues to the taste but with a nice sweet and sour balance with a slight bit of acidity. Very enjoyable and was the unanimous hit at New Years.

Deep purple opaque core with garnet edge. A fruity aroma with notes of blueberry and cherry. Taste has an instant acid crispness that is balanced very well with the fruity flavors and tannins. Full bodied with a long finish. I really enjoyed this wine and with the low price plan to purchase more.

Garnet color that became very light at the meniscus. The wine was very closed and did not give off much of anything on the nose, maybe a very slight rose dried aroma. Extremely dry with high tannins. Tasted with some Boscheta cheese which smoothed out the tannins and brought out a fruity note to the palate.
