This is a good basic red wine for drinking in the evening. It is on the sweeter side. — 4 days ago
Refreshing chilled. The taste of apples on a snowy winter day! — a month ago
Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.
Extremely fruity on the nose with black cherries, black currants, dried figs, raisins, alcohol, licorice, vanilla, cedar, cloves, spices and black pepper.
Full-bodied, smooth, bold and rich, with medium acidity and long long legs.
Dry to off dry on the palate and very fruity, with black cherries, blackberries, figs, raisins, vanilla, sweet raspberries, tobacco, spices, spice box, wood and peppercorn.
Long finish with soft tannins and tangy cherries.
This is a great red blend from California. Uniquely rich, extracted and interesting. Has that Bourbon Barrel taste to it, with lots of fruits, and maybe some residual sugar. I also get some Port characteristics.
I was hoping for it to chill down by now, as a 5 year old, but it is still very vibrant and extremely fruity.
Good by itself as a sipping wine and good right out of the bottle. Might be too much for some 😉
Aged for 3 months in Bourbon Whisky barrels.
17% (OMG!) alcohol by volume.

This never ceases to not only be enjoyable, but also to surprise. Figured an 8-yr old bottle would’ve turned by now...but while the sweetness may have subsided the slightest bit, the flavor was still very present. It was an excellent sipper for a snowy winter day. — 17 days ago
Established in 1987, DD Oregon is owned by famed Burgundy producer, Maison Joseph Drouhin. Hand-crafted by fourth generation winemaker, Veronique Drouhin-Boss. Ruby with fruit and sweet floral scents, very French in style. On the palate cherry and blueberry with pepper and earthy notes. Young but integrated tannins, well defined, elegant with underlying richness, long finish.

Color of light gold with a touch of green hue. Nose of ripe fruit like banana, pineapple, citrus, nectar, and indeed a bit mineral. Taste follows the nose, with good ripe fruit content, mineral, a bit roasted nuts, and a touch of zest. Aftertaste is medium and a bit light, yet clean and enjoyable. — a day ago
I’m not normally a Pinot Gris fan. They all kind of taste the same to me. This one feels more complex. Notes of crisp green apple on the nose and citrus on the end. Very refreshing. Drank it in the winter but bought more bottles to sip it in the summer. — 20 days ago
Totally agree with the hoppy and resinous review. Excellent beer. — a month ago
This afternoon a good friend and I shared the 2011 Domaine Berrien Cellars Crown of Cab. The wine is a blend of 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 9% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec. Your classic Bordeaux blend and again from my favorite winery in Southwest Michigan.
On the nose you will find black cherry, black raspberry, black currant, licorice, herbs, spice and a nice earth component.
The palate brings forth the dark fruit, black cherry, black raspberry, black currant, green bell pepper, menthol, black licorice, spice, an herbal note and a nice earthy loam.
The wine is full bodied with medium + acidity and medium + sandy tannins that leads to a long clean dark fruit finish. What a pleasant and surprising experience we enjoyed this afternoon. I loved how this wine has developed over time and given another 5 to 10 years it will continue to gracefully age. This is Domaine Barrien's flagship wine and for the price you can't beat it. Enjoy the rest of the weekend and have a great week ahead. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 11 days ago
