GREAT BARGAIN
Posted Dec 25, 2013

"A very agreeable wine. One of the best low-priced wines I've encountered. It won't knock your socks off with all kinds of incredible flavors. But whenever I've served it, folks will keep drinking it until it's all gone. For the price you can't go wrong. It helps to uncork it an hour or so before serving."

LIVES UP TO ITS DESCRIPTION
Posted Dec 21, 2012

"This is one wine that lives up to its description. It's an incredibly fine tasting vintage. Based on other wines I've purchased that were rated 90, I would grade this one at 93 or 94. It's hard to believe it's priced so econcomically."

ONE OF THE BEST UNDER $20 WINES I'VE COME ACROSS.
Posted May 28, 2012

"This is a very fine wine for its price range. Considering I've tasted some wines ranked 90+ that I did not particularly care for, I would rate this wine at 91 or 92. It doesn't measure up to some of the wines priced at $30, $50, or $100 plus; but it is still a fine wine for many occasions. By the way it definitely benefits from running it through one of those aerating devices, or uncorking it an hour or two before serving. It becomes a lot smoother in those circumstances."

I WOULDN'T BUY IT AGAIN.
Posted May 28, 2012

"I bought this wine because I heard it recommended on NPR and because of its rating by one of the well known reviewers. I did not find it very appealing myself. I don't know all the correct terminolgy, so I would say I found it somewhat astringent or bitter. It's not a wine I will be buying again."

GREAT WINE FOR THE PRICE
Posted May 28, 2012

"I would not place this wine in the same category as some of the great ones selling for $50, $100, or more. But is certainly outstanding for its price point. So far its one of the best reds that I have found for under $15.00. Used it a dinner party a couple of nights ago, and everyone enjoyed. I'm sure I'll be buying more of this wine in the future."

A GREAT BARGAIN
Posted May 1, 2012

"This wine is about as pleasant and agreeable as you could want. At a dinner I gave, one guest polished off a whole bottle by himself. I would desribe this wine as very pleasant and agreeable----not too tart, and not too sweet. It is rather light in flavor; but it is so pleasant, I can't imagine anyone saying they didn't like it. I certainly intent to keep a good supply of this wine available. You will never go wrong serving it, unless you are dealing with some uber wine snobs."

GREAT WINE FOR THE MONEY
Posted May 1, 2012

"Really good wine. Nice clean taste, well balanced, with an assertive flavor (in a good way). In my search for economical wines with a great taste, this tops my list so far. If I were giving it a grade, I would probably give it a 90 to 92."
