Paul Jaboulet 'Parallele 45' Cotes du Rhone Rouge 2016 image
GREAT COTE DE RHNE
Posted Nov 28, 2019[Verified]

"This has been a favorite for some years and sometimes I prefer a richer wine (red Zin i.e.) and sometimes another - and sometimes a screw top for ease of storage if not all used but it is the most dependable red (in my price range) - offends no one and at least satisfies everyone"

IT'S A NICE WINE
Posted Feb 12, 2018[Verified]

"this is a nice wine - better the second day - maybe it needs to be decanted (not my normal way) - I would recommend it to a friend but ask for his opinion and initially only suggest he/she buy two bottles as I did and when I use the second maybe I will change this comment"

THE PREMIER RED IN OUR HOME
Posted Oct 25, 2017[Verified]

"Frog's Leap has been superior since I first made it's acquaintance - bring it when you visit a friend and become a cherished visitor."

A DRY REISLING
Posted Aug 23, 2017[Verified]

"it is so hard to find a really dry Reisling but this is one - not bone dry but a rare find - to me - here in the States - if you like dry or even semi-dry Reislings it is worth a try."

RICH WINE

"When one wants a rich strong pretty dry red it is very good"

Bogle Vineyards 'Old Vine' Zinfandel 2014 image
GREAT WINE - GREAT BUY
Posted Aug 23, 2016[Verified]

"rich and full but not overwhelming - sometimes a cote de rhone or beaujolais or lighter wine is better for that occasion but asked to choose one red wine in my price range it would be this."

CUPCAKE SAUVIGNON BLANC
Posted Apr 18, 2016[Verified]

"It is really a very nice wine - it will be a regular with us and may usurp our current "house white" but we are trying others too. - Time & drink age have moved my four stars To five stars"

REALLY NICE WINE

GOOD ZIN
Posted Aug 7, 2015[Verified]

"This is a really good good wine - great is a hard word for me - but close - it is now a stable of our closet. The wonderful flavor of a Zin but not as heavy as some"

A GOOD MUSCADET

Santa Rita '120' Sauvignon Blanc 2018 image
GREAT STEADY DEPENDABLE SAUVIGNON BLANC
Posted May 7, 2015[Verified]

"this is our "house white" - the taste is crisp and smooth and it goes well with most non red meat type meals - the screw top makes it easy to store and retard oxidation of any left over wine. Sometimes a fancier wine for special company or a special dish but this is a great wine to have available and priced very attractively - continues to perform for is"

Casa Lapostolle Carmenere 2012 image
MY SURPRISE WINE FROM PATAGONIA
Posted May 7, 2015[Verified]

"On the last evening of a hiking trip in Patagonia we tried this wine and I do believe it was the best red we had during five weeks in Brazil, Argentina and Chile. I was glad to see I could find it at Empire.It is a bit richer than my normal taste but well presented and it will continue to be part of our inventory."

NxNW 'Horse Heaven Hills' Riesling 2014 image
REALLY GOOD RIESLING
Posted Aug 25, 2014[Verified]

"of all the Rieslings that say they have the crisp refreshing taste of a "dy riesling" this one is a winner. All the wines bought looking for the "good dry riesling" and finally success"

La Spinetta CP Sangiovese 2010 image
