Waihopai River Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Zingy tropical citrusy with good length. My favourite Sauvignon Blanc so far and excellent for the price as would pay more. — a year ago

Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe

Télégramme Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend

I read Ned Grey Creed’s review and had to try it. I might add it’s more like the difference between friends and good friends. Friends help you move. Good friends help you move...
...bodies. This is a good friend.

In my list of best wines under $50, this one is at the top. In my list of best wines under $100, easily in the top 3. I bought it knowing CNDP has a standard to maintain, but at the price, I didn’t expect quite this level of complexity, long finish, and sikiness in the tannins. I went back to the store and bought the last three they had. I tend to fall in the high dollar Margaux camp, but this can give any of them a serious run for their money.

Bodega Comando

La Bruja Avería Rozas de Puerto Real Grenache 2016

Here we have 1st class Garnacha. Very pure red. On nose this has raspberry, strawberry, cherry, some herbs and licorice. Clearly a uptoned note. On palate this has cool but sweet fruit with red berries, spicy note and minerality. Tannins are very fine grape ned and start to add grip towards the end. Excellent fruit acid balance. Medium+ length that ends on pure cherry and red apple peel notes. Highly enjoyable and food friendly wine. Total class — 10 months ago
