GREAT WINE TOO YOUNG
Posted Feb 23, 2019[Verified]

"a remarkable wine at this price with rich berry flavors and deep body, however it has a decidedly green and unripe character corresponding to it being bottled and marketed at less than a year after the vintage. Definitely a wine released before its time. Buy it now and cellar it for at least a year or maybe 3. Great potential though."

WHAT A DEAL.

"I just tasted this wine with a steak tonight (1/29/2019) and was totally stunned. This wine is comparable to wines 3 times the price. It is thick rich robust and complex, full bodied and full berried. Do not miss this one."

FIRST TASTING
Posted Jan 19, 2019

"This wine was disappointment, drinkable but nothing to write home about, lacking depth of character & body, nowhere close to the rating JS gives it."

BOB'S TRUMPETER MALBEC REVIEW
Posted Oct 9, 2018[Verified]

"This is a deep rich wine with very ample body and juicy berry flavors. Extremely wonderfully enjoyable Malbec and a great buy at this price."

RB'S GEWURZTRAMINER REVIEW
Posted Sep 22, 2018[Verified]

"Dry with Intense fruity aroma, rich amber color of honey, having a deep rich mouth feel and body, well balanced with great spiciness. This wine is in the medicinal, mineral witch hazel style as opposed to the fruity and lighter spicy Riesling style. Very dynamic and bold. I real winner in this style of Gewurztraminer."

RB'S COLLI SENESI 2016 REVIEW
Posted Sep 14, 2018[Verified]

"upon initial tasting in August 2018 I found this wine to be a bit thin but with all the flavor qualities of a good Chianti. Re-tasted a month later and the thinness has disappeared. Sure it still could be a bit richer but at this price it is a fabulous Chianti. Had it with my favorite pasta tomato sauce and it went perfectly. Haven't tried it with Fava beans yet."

RB'S EARTHQUAKE CAB 2915 REVIEW
Posted Sep 10, 2018[Verified]

"Every bit as good as the 2014, which was fantastic. Great depth of flavor with rich berry flavors. Smooth and delicious. 92-93. Easily would expect to be in the $30 range."

BBOB'S SHOOTING STAR REVIEW
Posted Sep 3, 2018[Verified]

"A dynamite Zin. Fruity rich complex and full bodied. Compares well with the Peoples Wine Co. Zin but have not done a side by side comparison of the 2. Must do. At this price it is hard to beat."

BBOB'S PEOPLE'S ZIN REVIEW
Posted Aug 28, 2018[Verified]

"Absolutely the best Zin. at this price point that I have ever tasted. Fruity, rich and full bodied with a smooth lingering flavor finish. Better Zins are over $20."

BOB'S PROTOCOLO REVIEW
Posted May 13, 2018[Verified]

"Exceptional red wine for this price. Would expect this wine to be at $11-$12. I would rate this wine a 90. A great wine, no, a very good wine yes. This wine would impress at a barbecue or every day party or dinner."
