Big, full bodied red from Languedoc. Grenache/Syrah old vine blend. This wine has it all, for the price. Black fruit, red fruit, complexity and balance. — 5 days ago
This was better than I expected. Lush, tropical fruit with well balanced new oak. — 5 days ago
Our go to summer white. A little residual sugar and great acidity. Pairs particularly well with spicy dishes. I like it as an after dinner glass. — 19 days ago
60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 20% Carignan. This is a great value. Drinks like a CDR, even a Gigondas. Rich fruit, body and complexity. — 5 days ago
First Reverdy Sancerre. Had more body and a little less acidity than I expected. Similar to Cotat's Mont Dames. — 5 days ago

Actually the Pierre Leon Cuvee. Delectable ids not very good lately.
Very Burgundian: earthy, tart red fruit. Fooled most of us in the blind tasting group. Just a really good bottle of Pinot. — 19 days ago
