    Faustino VII 2009
    $11.99
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    The Wine...Faustino VII 2009...The Scene....our house with my parents and brother over for a lazy Sunday BBQ. Purchased this bottle for my brother's birthday. I like the wines from the Rioja region so I'm exploring these with thought process of picking out cool looking old beared men on the bottles...gotta start somewhere...all of us had a taste of this one...nothing going on with this one...nice taste, easy on the tongue...not too bad...main thing was that brother Jim enjoyed the bottle.

    Style: Light & Crisp
    The Wine...Thomas Penfolds Hyland Riesling 2008...The scene...Enjoying a relaxing afternoon in the yard with the wife and having a glass of wine. A bit warm outside so the wine was nice instead of a beer but didn't like the bitter aftertaste that I experienced as I had another glass. Not a bad tasting wine but don't think I would order another Riesling like this one.

    The Wine...Montebuena Rioja 2009...The scene...Dinner...Monday evening at home with a beef roast. Wife enjoyed this one as I also tossed back a few glasses of this one. Easy drinking and smooth...tasted a bit of vanilla on the first swallow. Nice price and a good taste...I finish the bottle and wanting more.

    Had this with Easter dinner with ham and leg of lamb and other assorted goodies. Dry wine with a clean refreshing taste that was very nice.
