Floral nose. Fairly generous fruit, moderate acidity.

2010 Domaine des Justices Blanc Bordeaux Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend (view label images)
Nose is dominated by a Twizzlers / licorice aroma. It tastes like a mix of garbage and licorice. Just awkward. The finish length is decent, but I'd like this wine to have as short a finish as possible.

Nose is rich with strawberries, anise and a little moss. The palate adds a rich, berry liqueur flavor balanced by firm acid and medium tannins. This wine is young and needs airtime. Will benefit from a few years in the cellar, but is enjoyable now.

A fun, but substantial wine. Lots of black pepper and tart, red fruit. Plenty of acid to make it fresh and food friendly. Medium tannins cleanse the palate on the finish. Best slightly chilled.

Fairly fragrant nose - honey, flowers, a little anise. Crisp, but round on palate, with tropical fruit flavors. It's a tad hot, so I prefer it well-chilled.

I suggest drinking this now if you still have bottles. It's begun to fade, and the alcohol is starting to dominate.

Mainly petroleum smells on nose, with a little lemon. Taste: Tart, firm metallic acidity, a little lemon. This is not a fruity riesling, but would be quite good with many foods.

Off-dry, fairly fruity, mainly tropical fruit, but a somewhat awkward mid/finish. Ok for a cheap patio pounder.

This wine is still really good. A little green pepper at first, but after a while it gives way to dense, red fruit, black current, cedar box, and a nice, subtle perfume. Significant tannins, but fairly soft.

A blend of Negroamaro, Primitivo, Cabernet Sauvignon.
Nose: Ripe strawberries, raspberries, mossy stone, smoke. Generous ripe fruit, chalky tannins, firm acid, black pepper toward finish. Good amount of stuffing in this wine for the price point. Great for food.

Nose is fairly reserved.. a little lemon peel, steel, very clean nose. Crisp acid, stone, melon, lemon. Med finish. This is a good food wine, nice acid and doesn't try to steal the show with over the top flavors.

Raspberries, cherries, smoke on nose. Sour cherries, tart acid, subtle oak, chalky tannins on finish. Finish is short-med, but it's got an additional perfume component that makes up.

Sweet cantaloupe, flowers on nose. A little lemon, minerals, off-dry. Very simple. If this wine offered just a little more, I'd consider it a good value.

Lots of oak at first, but it blows off after an hour or so. Nose has cherries, cranberries, some spice. Generous fruit on palate, structure is ok, but is a little flabby. Finishes with a little tannin action and dried cherries. Pretty decent value.

Very dark and rich for pinot. After about an hour some of the Pinot started to come through. Way more ripe fruit than I'm used to. Lots of people who don't normally like Pinot may like this.

Smells like spicy blueberry compote. Generous fruit on palate, but flavor profile is fairly simple. A tad thinner than I like, otherwise decent structure, moderate tannins.

Chewy fruit - blueberries, blackberries, ripe plum. Big dose of tobacco, some oak and a touch of menthol on the finish. Tannins are moderate, and quite ripe. Probably goes well with certain foods, but threatens to steal the show.

Dark, opaque purple. Nose has lots of dark purple fruit and floral. Once it opened up, there's quite a bit of fruit on palate, mainly dark berries. This wine has big structure and seems quite young still. Finishes with powdered tannins and the fruit locks in for quite a while.
