I like this Chardonnay somewhat. It is light and easy drinking. Went well with the halibut and scallops, but it was a little non-descriptive. I actually don't recall the details of the flavors or notes. I will not buy again not because it is bad, but because there are better ones. I would give it 89 instead of 91. Revised: I just whacked myself on the head because I am ordering it again in search of a cheap good white wine, and my friends liked it.
I don't remember much of this wine after drinking it. So maybe it is forgettable? Otherwise, it is probably just very drinkable, so it doesn't stand out as very good or bad. Not great for the price.

I loved this sparkling rose. From the moment I popped the screw, the floral nose bubbled out. The color is very very light, just a hint of pink. I found it to be beautiful to look at. It is very dry and very light in flavor, like summer night breeze in a valley. So it's easy and pleasant to drink. And yet it is very fruity. I think it had passion fruit and kiwi and green apple tastes, but I am only recalling from memory. I have ordered more and will take notes next time and update my review here. 93 well deserved points, which is the highest I have given to wines I bought here. Update: Another bottle tastes just as good as I remembered. Too bad the price went up from $23 to 30.
This is probably the best sub $20 bottle of white I have had. Very fruity with complex flavor and fragrance, and yet not a bit of sweetness. The signature New Zealand SB passion fruit taste is actually on the lighter side because the other flavors are very rich and complex. Nice woody/grassy over tone, mixed with guava, passionfruit, kiwi, citrus, and cranberries. Ordering the third time.
Loved it and ordered more. I didn't take notes when I drank it but I loved it, so have to go from memory. It had wonderful fig and plum flavors. The nose and bouquet was filled with caramel and coca. The only complaint may be the relatively thin body. It is not really bold and complex and rich. But rather, it is very smooth and pleasant. More like a Merlot than a Cab. I will give it 91.
I didn't like the musky overtone that tastes a bit like chemicals, which got a bit less pronounced as the drinking of progressed to a second and third glass. Other than that, it's has a rich, interesting, and complex body. Mixed darker berries and cherry in the taste. 88.
It doesn't have impressive complexity, but it's rather light and pleasant. Is good for a casual summer drink. Ordering another one to give it more of a tasting. Four star for its price--one of the cheapest Chardonnays I can find. About 88 points.
Good quality solid cab from Mondavi. I will give it 90 too.
A sweet and crispy drink. A bit too sweet for my regular preference, but still somewhat pleasant.
It is the least favorite wine I bought from wine.com, out of about 50 different ones. I was so disappointed that I wondered if I got a defective bottle. It was the lightest colored red wine I have had, color is only a hint darker than rose. More pink than red. The bouquet is somewhat pleasant, but completely over powered by a sharp, hard, and cold bitterness--maybe some would call it minerally tannins. It's a Pinot so it should be light and fruity and fragrant, but because of the bitterness it is hardly drinkable. If I didn't love wine I would have poured it down the drain. But I instead pour it down my throat :) I drank the second half bottle the next day and it was only marginally less caustic to the palette. So it was unlikely caused by the fluke of my tongue that evening. It's so bad that I don't know what score to give it. FAIL.
