Drank 6/1/20. Very nice with grilled lamb chops.
Nose of cherry cola, blue fruit, and some sweet baking spice. This is in a nice place, with similar flavors of cherry cola, blueberry, black currant, leather, backed by medium, fully integrated tannins. Lovely balance. Medium finish. Drink now and over the next couple of years.

Classic southern Rhone nose with sour red cherry, underbrush, and some pepper. Red fruit on the palate, with cherry and pomegranate accompanied by some herbal notes and light to medium tannins. Medium finish.

Drank 4/7/20. Nice with Crabcakes.
Simple, lemon curd on the nose. Fruit forward palate with lemon, green apple, and a hint of pear. Creamy mouth feel suggests sur lie aging, but no detectable oak. A clean, well made chardonnay, nice, but a bit simple for my taste. Medium finish.

Drank 5/25/20. Very nice with lasagne.
Nose of earth, black cherry, and cranberry opens to flavors of black cherry, leather, and earth. Very nice balance. Medium finish dominated by black cherry , earth and medium plus tannins. Give this one a 30 + minute decant and a bit of a chill.

Unbelievable value Would highly recommend as a "house italian". — 9 days ago
Drank 4/27/20. Decent with grilled pizza.
Scents of baking spice, red cherry, and a bit of vanilla Red cherry,blackberry, tar, and earth flavors with juicy, medium tannins. Sour cherry and tar mark the medium finish. A nice everyday drinker. I would have guessed there is a bit of Merlot in this, but the label only mentioned sangiovese. An enjoyable red for a great price ($10). Drink this one a bit cooler.

Red cherry and tobacco scents, yield to similar, sweet red cherry and strawberry flavors. Finishes with red cherry and a bit of leather. Medium, juicy tannins. A simple, everyday italian, that wont break the budget. Will pair with a wide variety of food, or drink on it's own.

Very nice and would pair with a wide variety of cuisine for around $11 — 14 days ago
Lighter nose of blackberry, raspberry, earth, and a hint of barnyard. Tannins are dry, but well integrated with blackberry, and a bit of leather and red fruit on the palate. Lacking concentration, but an excellent example of a well aged Bordeaux from a lesser chateau in its prime drinking window. Dry finish. Enjoyed this quite a bit, even though it is not a sensational wine.

Drank 4/12/20. Excellent with lamb chops and a red wine sauce.
Plum sauce, blackberry, raspberry, spearmint, soil, and a bit of petrol are easily coaxed from the glass. Flavors of plum sauce, raspberry coulis, tobacco, and mint are backed by medium + well integrated tannin. Drink now and over the next 5-10 years.
