    Domaine Laroche La Chevaliere Rose 2011
    Sold Out
    $12.00
    I would call this a dry+ Rose, as the sweet cantaloupe finish is on the syrupy side. Wonderful freshness in the strawberry and peach nose. Would be excellent with very spicy food (I was having pasta and found it a bad pairing without extra pepper) as the finish is not tart/green enough for my taste. I prefer the Chateau de Campuget Costieres de Nimes Tradition Rose 2012 as a Rose that stands up on its own without being on that slightly sweet side....

    Punto Final Malbec Classico 2012
    $12.99
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    A pleasant medium bodied every day drinking wine with rounded tannins. Smooth. Not as much depth in terms of fruit, (slightly flat for this varietal) but I did note aromas of dark cherries and dark brown sugar. Casual and a good value, I would recommend this if you were new to Malbecs, very approachable.

    Di Majo Norante Sangiovese 2011
    Sold Out
    2012 vintage available for $11.99
    Style: Earth & Spicy
    I would give this 3.5 if I could. I found this was a unremarkable example of the varietal. Not only did it seem a bit watery/bland, but it had a distinctly bitter olive finish for me that I could not get past. The mouthfeel of the wine improved with aeration but the finish was not to my taste.

    Bodegas Volver Tarima 2012
    Sold Out
    2013 vintage available for $8.99
    Style: Earth & Spicy
    I would say this wine was decent but did not really make an impression on me. There was an earthiness with darker concentrated fruit present but a rough finish.

    Melville Sta. Rita Hills Estate Pinot Noir 2011
    Sold Out
    2012 vintage available for $31.99
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    An excellent example of a bold, yet balanced California Coastal Pinot noir. Slightly concentrated medium red fruit, velvety and smooth. Not a light Pinot in taste or texture, but with an elegant, brief finish.

    The Seeker Malbec 2011
    Sold Out
    2012 vintage available for $11.99
    Style: Earth & Spicy
    Rich and powerful with a dark berry fruit. Some aromas of (extra) dark chocolate and spice. I would recommend this with heavier & spicy meats. I accidentally left the wine uncorked overnight and still found the wine to be full bodied and interesting. I would say this wine is an excellent value. I am only giving it 4 stars because I found the finish to be slightly rough, even after decanting.

    Falesco Merlot Umbria 2010
    Sold Out
    2011 vintage available for $12.99
    Style: Earth & Spicy
    Not as soft or smooth as I would have expected, and a bit too herbal/tannic for my taste.

    Borsao Tinto 2012
    Sold Out
    2013 vintage available for $8.99
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    This wine was medium bodied to me, flexible in its appeal (black cherry, slight smokiness), and for the price an excellent value. I would buy more for a dinner party or large group....but i would not necessarily purchase it as an everyday drinking wine as it lacked depth to me.
