"We went to Portugal on our honeymoon. We really like a lot of nonPort wines, like this one. WS got it right. This is a nice wine, well made. We're getting more. You should try some."

"We had the 2019. We'll get a bottle of the 2020, and hope it's as good. A really well made red from Germany. If you like good Pinot Noir, you'll like this."

"May be 5 stars, this was our first bottle. We're going for more, and you should give it a try as well. Pas, Pais? we are unfamiliar with the grape, but I like to walk on the wild side, once in a while It has a green pepper element to it, like Carmenere, or Cabernet Franc. My wife usually doesn't care for that, but she liked this. If we like the second bottle as much, we'll get a case, and maybe give 5 stars on the review. Not for everybody, but get some, and decide for yourself. Well made."

"We'd disagree with the other reviewer. We like rose, but are not huge fans of sparklers. This wine is overcoming our resistance to bubbly. We just ordered a second case, at at this price point, this is the bomb, in our opinion. Free shipping, and 9 bucks? It's a 4 star wine, but we have to give it 5. Try a bottle yourself, and make the call. We think you'll order more..."

"We had the 18, not the 19. It was really good, like borderline 5, certainly a solid 4, and beyond, at the price point. We'd like to think the 19 is as good, but we're not ordering a case just to find out. Requiring a case order is a bit unfair, in my opinion."
