GOOD TEMPRANILLO"Have to agree with others. Nice tempranillo that's true to the name. If you typically like this grape this is a good representation of its beauty."

VERY APPROACHABLE"Nice everyday red. Very approachable from the beginning. Lacks depth and doesn't evolve much 2nd day (if you have any left :) but still a nice bottle"

OVERRATED?"Definitely better second day. Good wine, not great. Not overly impressed with the finish but drinkable. Probably would not purchase again."

WOW, IT'S REALLY GOOD!"I have to admit--I was skeptical even with the great reviews by others. Deep red on pouring with a terrific balance. Full bodied and delicious. Hard to imagine a better PQR than this baby! Good stuff."

VERY SIMILAR TO A CHIANTI"Had a decent nose on opening but never quite opened up like I thought it would. A good food wine but far from a 5 star."

OKAY..."Thought this CDR lacked a little structure and fruitness that I've experienced with previous CDR. A nice drinker but nothing over the top...probably would not purchase again."

FRANCE WITH LOVE"Have to agree with 1st rater. Great PQR! Amazing for the price the wine displays the 'garrigue' for the region. Good stuff"

NICE, RIGHT OUT OF THE BOTTLE"Very good. 1st day opened up nicely and very fruit driven but enough balls on the finish to be very interesting."

RIGHT OUT OF BOTTLE"Nice bottle of wine. Didn't need much air time to be delicious after popping the cork. Felt the wine could be enjoyed with or without food. It was that approachable! Good stuff."
