Vilalva Reserva Douro 2013 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

1st day: very spicy, hot on first day2nd day: mellowed a bit but still the opposite of soft and subtleA wine for food but still would not purchase again

Domaine Lafage 'La Narassa' Red Blend 2015 Overrated?
Definitely better second day. Good wine, not great. Not overly impressed with the finish but drinkable. Probably would not purchase again.

Bodegas Ego 'Fuerza' Red Blend 2015 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.

Tenuta La Pergola Monferrato Rosso 2015 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.

Domaine Grand Veneur 'Les Champauvins' CDR 2015 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.

Clos des Fous 'Pour Ma Gueule' Blend 2015 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.

Cune 'Crianza' Rioja 2014 Very good Rioja
Nice and flavorful and good enough to have by itself.
