I think i missed the boat on this one, probably a little past its prime and a little heavier on anise than I like (personal preference). Drank with Thanksgiving dinner and my normal trinity of wine (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and CDP) with turkey, and this played second fiddle to the Pinot Noir. It lacked the pizzaz I was expecting and ended up being a little disappointing.

Not sure if there was something wrong with my wine chiller that affected my whites, but I opened this to replace a very dissapointing wine I opened earlier, unfortunately this didn't really seem much better. I barely drank it, and left most of it to my wife but for a $30 bottle this should have been much more enjoyable than what it was. Sorry to bring the overall rating down, but based on the 100 point scale here, I'm actually being generous with an 85.

Horribly disappointing; very hot, bitter and completely off balance. Opened it for Drink Your Wine Day and it couldn’t even enjoy it. It almost seemed like it needed to “open up” and allow some of the alcohol to burn off, but that wasn’t the case. It kind of gave me heartburn, yet I was determined to drink it because I didn’t want to waste an $18 bottle. I paired it with a VERY spicy sauce crabcake sauce to dilute the heat of the wine.

way more fun than I thought; never had a "reason" to drink Moscato so one day we just popped it and it was pretty good.

Yuck, open two days before you actually want to drink it. Hot (14.5%) and TIGHT, was more drinkable the 2nd day.

I had this at a VERY nice restaurant and I should have kicked in another $20 for a better bottle; this was okay but was way out done by the food I had with it.

Decent table wine (no high expectations); not as dry as a typical Montepulciano. Needs some time to breathe, a trip through the Vinturi doesn't heart either. Good pairing w/ any tomato-based Italian.

Horrible! I thought I had this before and enjoyed it with a certain pairing, but this was undrinkable. Not sure if there was a problem with the bottle or if it is normally this disgusting.

Scores are all over for this (80-90), and I'm somewhere in the middle. I love Barbera, but this was nothing special.

Nice fruit, very easy drinking; I accidentally opened this while drinking another twist-top shiraz @ half the price..and this one definitely killed that (Raw Power)

hot, the alcohol was a little over powering, slightly off balanced...(definitely not a 90 IMOP); pretty good if you only drink bottles <$10, but this couldn't compare to a true 90 point wine.

Drinkable, but not much more going on then that. The 2007 was a solid-basic/everyday Pinot Noir, but this one either isn't ready yet or is a much lower quality than 2007.

Wow, big range in the reviews... I'd go 88-89; there can be a big difference in serving this type of wine, so that could contribute to some of the bad reviews. First (I'm admittedly not an expert, ...but) standard red Rhône's aren't usually very complex or heavy, so decanting is usually not needed. Open the bottle, pour a small taste and check it...if you think it needs to breathe then leave the bottle open and put it in the refridgerator for 30 minutes, pour and put it back in the fridge. Rhône's are also best served slightly chilled (~60°); It wouldn't surprise me if over-decanting at room temperature killed it.

Had this with Thanksgiving dinner and it was wonderful. Maybe not a great value, but was a nice splurge for the holiday meal.

Screw-top white Rhone; I was excited to get this because this is the ONLY white Rhone I could find at my local store, but I was disappointed. My wife thought it was okay, but I found it very off-balance. The nose was nice (peaches, honey,minerals) the attack was clean and crisp but then it transitioned into a polar opposite. The finish was like candy (but not a good candy, maybe more like a honey-lemon cough drop which I think are disgusting). I tried it again three days later (typically not the sign of a wine I like if it is around 3 days later) and it seemed to balance a bit more. Since my expectations were different, I was expecting it to be ehhhh again, but instead of the awful finish surprising me at the end it wasn't quite as harsh and had a slightly better transition through the mid-palate. It was worth a shot and drinkable, but I wouldn't get it again.

I had the Pozzan Merlot first and it was AWFUL, so this was extremly surprising. This was good to drink, a nice value and was able to just pop and pour.

A nice QPR, this is a good bottle of Sangiovese to keep around for unexpected Italian nights. Drinkable in a short period of time too, no need for an hour+ decant.

Much better on day two or sufficient time to open up. I tried a few trips through the Vinturi, but still needed time to smooth out.

This wasn't the droid, i mean primitivo I was looking for, but it was nice. Tons of spice, not the fruit I was expecting but was a goo solo drinker. Nice for a relaxing night, without a lot of lead time needed to open up.

Decant decant decant, I opened this up and ended up not even drinking it the frst night because I wouldn't have had time to let it sit. I tried a quick decant and a few trips through the vinturi, but that still wasn't doing it. Decided to just recork it and try again the next day. I decanted for an hour plus....coupled with the vintui and being open for a day it was finally ready. Lots of cherry and pleasant drinking once given enough time to open.

Might have even been better if I read CT before drinking it. I didn't let it get enough air and it was still pretty damn good. I bet it would have opened up even nicer if I wasn't too lazy to pull out the Vinturi

I'm little new to Napa cab at this price point, I found it enjoyable (especially since it was a gift) but I was expecting a little more bang for the buck. I'd be interested in comparing others in ~$30 range.

I liked this much better this time, I think I might have had a 2006 last time or there was an issue with the bottle because it was definitely lackluster.
