This is a light wine which had flavors of apple and peach. It was moderately dry with a nice finish. I am really not familiar with Barbi as this was my first. It was enjoyable and I would purchase again.

This pinot grigio is delightful. It has aroma's of peach and slight strawberry. Pairs very well with chicken and long grain rice. The balance is excellent perhaps a slight bit of acidity. The finish is long and wonderful. Viansa has excelled with this wine. Received from the Wine Club.

Very deep purple color, almost like ink, not perfectly clear. Medium body and viscosity. Aromas of cherry, fruit and spice highlight this Zin. Finishes strong and well. Drink at room temperature and enjoy.

Domaine produces excellent Pinot Noir. This is not in the class of the Famous Gate, but for the price is one of the better Pinot Noirs on the Market. We paired it with steak, but that's because we really like Pinot and not Cabs.

This wine was exceptional. It was complex, big and well balanced. The blend of Merlot, Cab, Syrah and a small amount of Pinot had sensual aromas of cherry and black cherry. Balanced acidity and tannins with a medium length finish. Would recommend this for a nice steak dinner!

This bottle originated at WineExpress.com, it arrived in good shape but the wine inside was bad. It tasted like cork. Bottle was disposed of.

Nice purple color. Medium body. Tempranillo is nice due to moderate to low tannins. This wine has good balance. Lacks character but is simple and pairs well with pastas.

This is an off-dry Gerwuerztraminer that really has good quality for the price. One of the best value wines on the market. The color is a straw yellow. The wine is clear and forms good legs on the glass. It has pleasing aromas. There is not to much residual sugar. OK so its not complex there is no great finish, but in the end you will not be disappointed. If you are unhappy then the experience did not cost you much. Paired with Chicken Alfredo.

This wine improved slightly on the second day. Same comments as before. Not extremely complex, the aspect that improved for me was the finish. The tastes seemed to linger longer. The over all experience was pleasant. A good inexpensive daily table wine.

The wine is nicely colored yellow gold with citrus fruit aromas and flavor. Moderately sweet. Would prefer it to be a little more on the dry side. Also lacks pizazz.

Deep Purple and clear. Medium bodied wine with good balance of acidity and tannins. Not very complex, tastes good and does not need to be paired with food. Aromas of cherry with some light pepper. Short finish.

This Zin was good but not excellent. Tannins were moderate to strong so I would think it has some aging potential. It was better at room temperature than slightly chilled. Aromas gave high expectations that the taste didn't live up to.

Shared bottle with family in restaurant setting. It was served a little chilled. Flavor was crisp and citrus. Nice straw-yellow color. I thought the wine was slightly acidic on finishing.

Not certain the origin of this bottle at my house. The wine was cooked or spoiled. Gave to the drain.

Nice purple color with clarity. Medium bodied wine that may need more time to age. The aromas were not distinctive tonight. Fruit but nothing special. The finish is short and the tannins were medium to strong. Still a good wine that paired well with Baked Ziti.

Wine is a fruit explosion with a deep garnet color and not perfectly clear. Medium bodied and is as bold as Shiraz should be. It has a nice finish that lingers longer than most wines. The tannins are present but I didn't think overbearing. Certainly the wine can still age, but is also good to drink as is. Not as spicy as some other Shiraz have been. Has future potential.

A well balanced and simple Chardonnay that is easy to drink. Scents of oak are not overbearing yet enjoyable. The wine finishes very well and has just the right amount of acidity. Probably not as creamy or butter as some other Chardonnays but this is what I liked about it.

Excellent clarity and a nice straw-gold color for this wine. The balance is off. Too much acidity on the finish leaves a tart bite. The oak and vanilla flavors are very enjoyable. Perhaps a little thin compared to some Chardonnay.

Had expected more from this 50/50 blend of pinot grigio and sauvignon blanc. The wine is light and thin. It is clear to straw colored. Despite the blend it is very much one dimensional. Probably won't be going back.

A pleasant pinot with Garnet color and good clarity. Aromas of black cherries with an earthy tone. Some spices but not overbearing. Balance is good with low tannin and acidity. The finish is a little shorter than expected.

This turns out to be a very nice Pinot. The aroma has some smoke. There is cherry and plum for the fruit. Its clarity and color are excellent. Warm is better. A nice light bodied wine with mild tannins but some acidity. Could wind up being a favorite!

A pleasing aroma of rasberries and plums mixed with oak. A red blend of Primitivo, Zin and Teroldego. This wine has a strong character with moderate complexity. Tannins were medium and well balanced with the acidity.

This wine is a very sensual chianti. It has deep purple colors with medium body and good viscosity. Paired well with pasta. Aromas of fruit, cherry and blackberry. Mild acidity and tannins make this an easy to drink wine. Excellent for a weekday wine.

Aromas of cherry. A medium bodied purple ruby wine with good clarity and strong legs. A dry wine with sweet fruitiness on the first taste. Tannins are soft and acid is mild. Paired well with pasta and meatballs.

This wine is aromatic with fruits of black cherry or blackberry. Soft tannins and low acidity make it good for a beginning red drinker, however some might say it does not have enough character. Better than average and a good value at that.

This pinot was disappointing. It was thin and had a slight funky sulphury odor that didn't see to go away. Usually I am OK with Mondavi wines but this is one I will not be trying again soon.

This wine is medium bodied. A deep ruby and purple in color. It has aromas of berries and some spice to it. It paired well with chicken parmesan. It had soft tannins with some acid on the finish. My regret is that it is no longer available for sale and I only had this bottle.

This wine has a very ruby purple color with good clarity and viscosity. Drink warmer than cold. The aromas are of cherries and fruit and wood. Tannins may be harsh on the first taste but mellow with time. There is some acid on the finish but not too much. For the price one of the best wines you can buy. An excellent value.

This is a very elegant "yellow-gold" wine with developed aromas. Don't serve cold or you will miss out! There is fruit if apple, pear and even bananas. Nice crisp finish with well balanced acidity. A gem of a find from Viansa!

Although good this wine was disappointing after tasting some syrah's and blends prior. The aroma had a cherries and blackberry scents. The wine was light bodied and had mild tannins on the finish. Will purchase again reserved for everyday meal events. Nothing special!

This wine is a good mellow blend of Syrah, Cab and Sangiovese. For the money a great value. A deep Ruby color, a litter lighter in body than some pure Syrah's. Good finish that was low in Tannins. Aromas were not well developed.

This is an excellent Syrah. Deep Ruby color and medium to full bodied. Lower than expected in Tannins and a very smooth finish. Would recommend! Had with son's birthday celebration. All guests enjoyed. Paired it with Ribs.

A very light and graceful riesling. Spice, orange and apricot aromas. Texture is very light creaminess. There is some acid on the finish which is a little more than desired but not overwhelming.

First time we had this blend from De Lisio. Deep purple/ruby in color. Clarity is excellent. Fruits come through on the nose such as cherry, black cherry, strawberry. The finish has spice and heat but not overpowering. I would purchase it again. All guests enjoyed it and complimented the wine. Aerate before serving.
