What I like about wine:

I love the fact that wine blends history, biology, chemistry, marketing and pleasure into a compact bottle. As the director of Education & Content for Wine.com, I love to teach wine & share wine - there is always something new to learn.

    Strawberry and roses! The aromas are berry & floral, the palate is firm and full-bodied, with similar flavors. Great balance and finish. The wine is made in the traditional method, with a cepage of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Can you beat the label and price? Try for parties, bridal showers, baby showers, weddings... love a good wine with a great package!

    Susana Balbo Signature Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

    Style: Big & Bold
    Love this Cabernet - it's a true cab though, so not for those who prefer sweet or smooth tannins. These tannins will dry your mouth out. But not before giving you loads of cassis, plum and violets, as well as a burst of dark chocolate. Wonderful balance and finish. Far better than many cabs twice the price.

    Wow! This is at the top of the top on my list of best Champagne. I typically enjoy Krug style, and while this has a full bodied richness, it remains extremely delicate. Pear, brioche, vanilla and then the creamiest texture/mousse you can imagine. LOVE.
