    Caricature Red Blend 2010
    Sold Out $13.99
    2011 vintage available for $13.99
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    Out of the bottle it is very soft in the mouth. Perhaps it could be perceived as sweet but rather, I think, it has more to do with the very soft feel and lack of tannins found in most Cab blends.The nose is also both herbal and a bit soft. Anyway, I will let this wine breathe for a while and vacuum and then try again tomorrow. I think though, that this wine will not disappoint. Ok, after the third pour on the third day under vacuum,this wine has opened up beautifully! The nose has evolved into an earthy delight and the fruit is rich and worth the wait. I have changed to 4 stars from 3. I will buy again!

    Atalaya Laya 2012
    Sold Out $10.99
    2013 vintage available for $8.99
    Style: Earth & Spicy
    Very young and needs some time in the bottle. However, you can drink now but with considerable aeration. Berry flavors and nose open up nicely. This will evolve quite nicely in a couple of years.

    Very tart out of the bottle. Nose of red berry. I think this wine needs more tme in the bottle. Perhaps another year. The 2010 was much better.

    Dry Creek Vineyard Heritage Zinfandel 2010
    Sold Out $17.99
    2012 vintage available for $16.99
    Style: Earthy & Spicy
    Very nice on the nose. A bit more zip than a typical Sonoma Zin. Very "Meaty" on the bone with gobs of fruit on the pallet, a wonderful finish. Will buy again!

    Clarendon Hills Brookman Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
    Sold Out $39.99
    2008 vintage available for $34.99
    I expected more. It took time to open up. After the 2nd day under vacuum it showed the fruit nose and berry flavor. Didn't last till the 4th pouring.Should be consumed at once after decanting for one hour with occasional swirling. I think I'll stick with their Shiraz, a sure winner.
