IF YOU LIKE CHIANTIS (AND WE DO!) YOU SHOULD LIKE THIS.
Posted Sep 7, 2019[Verified]

"Hey, Chiantis seem passe' for some folks, but I've never understood wanting the trendiest wine. I want the tastiest. This is a solid choice at a good price if you are a lover of wines from this region."

"We tend to like fruit forward wines and this one has a good deal of that. Well balanced and works well with a lot food or on its own."

YUP, I'D DRINK THIS AGAIN!
Posted May 16, 2019[Verified]

"Mid-body, dry-wise. Guests brought a ham with them, this went just fine, so there's likely not much this would not go with. I'd buy this again. Tasty."

"Really, I should tell you that it is awful so there will be more for me, but that would be mean. If you like Riojas, this is a very nice one at a good price."

LOVELY TABLE WINE

"We really liked this blend and will order it again if it is available. I would think this would be a great choice for having a variety of different folks around the table. It went nicely with the stew we served it with."

NICE BOTTLE IF IT IS YOUR STYLE
Posted Mar 27, 2018[Verified]

"We tend to like a very snappy, tart Sauv Blanc, this bottle is less so. If you do not like a crisp, green apple tart to your SBs, this might suit your taste well."

Matchbook 'Arsonist' Red Blend 2015 image
SOLID TABLE WINE
Posted Mar 27, 2018[Verified]

"We have purchased this blend several times. A very nice table wine. Goes well with many dishes. Would also be a likely popular bottle at gatherings. Good value."

"Had some today with lamb prepped on the barbecue. I don't know about flavors of "Spanish cedar," but I would say that it is very fruity, berry and I'd buy it again. Not terribly heavy or heavy on tannins. Very nice on the first (finally!) hot day in June in da Yoop."

ALCOHOL IN THE WINE IS OVERPOWERING.
Posted Dec 12, 2016[Verified]

"For the price I would make other choices. We found the alcohol level to overpower the other flavors."

AS GOOD AS MORE EXPENSIVE BUBBLY.
Posted Jan 1, 2016[Verified]

"We purchased this and compared it with a more expensive bottle. This bottle held up just fine and was as enjoyable as a bottle twice this price."
