SUPERB

"Best wine I've ever purchased at Empire, at a great price. Finally, a red with some genuine depth."

SUPERB

"Best white I have had this summer, and what price point from France? Fine balance and texture. Excellent!"

DIVINE BLEND

"Always on the look-out for a red under $10, who isn't? This wine has some real depth, however one dimensional, but inky out of the bottle, and supple Petite Sirah blend. Bought half a case of similar blends for under $10, and this is the only one that doesn't have that sweet, thin candy taste. Time to try their Cabernet."

I'M WITH NORMAN

"Right on, this wine is layered with real fragrance and depth. Nothing beats the price point on this."

PERFECT FOR PRICE RANGE

"Solid wine; complex structure, with some real backbone through the finish. Much smoother the following day; this wine can sit for a few more years. I keep trying to find the same depth at a $10 price range. I think the same rule applies: gotta start at $20 or more."

NOT AN EXCELLENT WINE

"Right for the price--one dimensional, borderline too thin, but it's $10 a bottle. Look harder in the same price range for more depth and complexity."

BETTER THE NEXT DAY

"Excellent value. This really softened up after one night. There is some depth here that is lacking in the majority of these 90points and above wines from Empire, finally!"

THIN AND CANDY-LIKE

"You get what you pay for. One-dimensional, light tone in the glass, dead giveaway before tasting. You can do better for the price. These lower priced wines are all tasting the same, but look hard enough, and there are gems."

"Great price. I was paying twice as much for this wine in Waterford, before I found it here. Fabulous wine with some bonafide depth."

"Thin and candy like. Never ordering a 90 rated wine again in the $10 range. BIg mistake."
