Bought the 2003 of the Veramonte and LOVED it. I got this 2006 thinking it would be as enjoyable but it didn't live up to it's predecessor. It is not a 4, but not a 3. I actually give it a 3 1/2. It's like a C+. medium body. medium aroma. not too big on flavor at all. that was a downer from the 2003. Not sweet, but not bitter either. No oak flavor. I have had other wines at this rating and this isnt quite there. I'd give it a 85-88 rating in all honesty. This is a good everyday, non-special occasion, dinner with the kids kind of wine for me. Get a case for yourself for an everyday wine. For $9.99, you can't get a whole lot better for an everyday thing.
