Nice weekday wine. Easy to drink and wonderful with Italian food. We always enjoy this wine and order it every time it appears on Woot.

A really wonderful Cabernet Savignon. Full body, nice finish, and an excellent 'food wine.'

This wine paired beautifully with 'authentic' Chinese food. It really brought out the spices in the dishes. This was one of the best wines paired with the cuisine at our Wine Woot dinner. It is fruity (cherry) and not too heavy. This was a real crowd pleaser...would order again!

This is a decent pinot noir. It is good for the price, and something that is a good weekday drinking wine. We opened this bottle with some 'authentic' Chinese food at a Wine Woot dinner. It did not pair well. Would be a better wine for cheese before a meal or to sip on after dinner.

The best chianti I've ever had! Poured after letting it sit for an hour. Beautiful, full bodied, and nicely balanced. Perfect with an Italian dinner.

Enjoyed at home for a pasta dinner. This is a soft pinot. Bright in color, smooth mouth feel, and very enjoyable.

Popped and poured at a Wine Woot dinner. Did not use the Vinturi, but would do so if I had another bottle of this wine. Nice body for a pinot, tasted cherry and had a smooth finish. Would buy again and it is an excellend 'food' wine! Everyone at the table who enjoys pinot noir thought this wine was delightful and a pleasant surprise!

This wine compliments spicy Thai food beautifully! We enjoyed it at a Thai wine dinner, and it was the hit of the evening! A gem for the price!

Decent, not great. A nice wine to drink on a warm evening. Paired it with cheese. Lovely for the price point, but would not go out of my way to buy.

Lovely wine. Big, fruity (cherry was the predominant fruit here) married with peppery undertones. Divine with fruit and cheese, but would be incredible with Italian food. Will decant the next bottle...didn't decant this round.

We really enjoyed this pinot. The bouquet is more floral than one would expect from a pinot...but very nice. Earthy, balanced and overall quite wonderful. Should have decanted, but popped and poured. Next time we will take the time to decant.

Very nice layering of flavors. Peppery and fruit foward. Didn't decant, but will next time. It got better as it aired. I look forward to seeing how the other bottles evolve with age.

Enjoyed this bottle at a wine and cheese gathering. Very yummy sipping wine, especially for the price. Somewhat peppery and spicy...would be wonderful with Italian food. Will purchase again!

This is a nice wine for thos who prefer reds. It has an earthy, floral flavor without being super sweet. It was clean and crisp. We enjoyed this wine without food and just sipped on it over two evenings. Very nice, especially for the price. Would buy again.

Needs to be decanted. We consumed this bottle at a Thai restaurant. It started off with an odd, not typical Pinot, flavor. It mellowed as it sat on the table and became rather good. Decant first.

A simple, solid white wine...perfect for a casual seafood dinner. Served with blackened Mahi Mahi covered in a pineapple salsa. A lovely pairing. The wine is not sweet or creamy/buttery. Lemony, but without being too light. A good white for red wine lovers.

Dry and crisp. Paired well with dessert. Decent for the price range, but not my favorite.

Enjoyed this bottle at a BYOB Italian restaurant. Ran the wine through an aerator before serving. Very good with the meal, but probably needs to be decanted to open up better. Complex and lovely.

Brought to a wine dinner at a Moroccan restaurant. This wine paired well with the orange infused creme brulee. The wine is not sticky, sickly sweet like many dessert wines. It is sweet enough, but not overpowering. It was my husband's favorite wine of the evening. Not bad for the cheap price!

A perfect wine when paired with Moroccan food. Brought this wine to a wine dinner and compared it with other Zins. This one had the most depth. It was peppery with a cherry undertone. Very alive and enjoyable. It was a big surprise after reading the other reviews and seeing that it should have been consumed by 2006! I think that date might be off after our delightful experience with this wine.

This wine was excellent paired with Peruvian cuisine. It is a fruity red that is similar to sangria, but not as sweet. Next time, I would serve it chilled and with some citrus (lime, orange, and lemon) floating in the glass. It is a wonderful and refreshing wine. Quite a surprise for the inexpensive price point!

Shared this with a friend as an afternoon wine on the first beautiful day of spring. It was the PERFECT wine for a lovely afternoon. It has a soft, floral bouquet. The flavor is well balanced, earthy, and floral without being sweet. It is has a light feel in the mouth with a cleansing acidity. It is just a wonderful wine to enjoy on a pretty day.

This is a Chard for red wine lovers. It is not overly oaky, has good balance, and is crisp. I bought these to give away as gifts, but ended up keeping all 6 bottles b/c my husband and I liked it so much. It is a terrific white wine to keep on hand for guests, and terrific for the price.

Very tart out of the bottle, decanted and waited an hour...much improved but still quite acidic. Did not pair well with pasta and marinara sauce. Would have been better with grilled red meat. Stored 1/2 for the next day...much improved after 24 hours!

A nice table wine. Enjoyed right after pulling the cork. Went well with Peruvian cuisine. Decent, but not outstanding.
