    Duboeuf Moulin-a-Vent 2010
    Sold Out $16.99
    Style: Light & Fruity
    The Wine...Duboeuf Moulin-a-Vent 2010...The scence...dinnner at home with the boys...a bottle that I ordered bacause the wife wanted a beaujolais for a baking recipe she wanted to try and I read a list of wines to consume for summer and the latter won out. This was not consumed in some baking recipe but with dinner in wine glasses...lovely color to swirl in the glass and was a bit chilled that had a nice ripe taste to it...is a very nice wine to be had during the end of summer...I would buy again..

    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.

    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.
