    Escarpment Over the Edge Pinot Noir 2008
    Sold Out $13.49
    New Zealand has great potential for Pinor Noir. This wine reminds you of a Savigny-Les-Beaune upon first opening. It has all the right elements, lots of cherrries and spice, but in the mouth it's a little sharp, a little thin and becomes tiresome after a while. It seems more of a commercial effort than artisanal.

    Quinta do Vallado Douro Tinto 2007
    Sold Out $19.99
    2011 vintage available for $17.99
    A truly distinctive wine. Deep colored with a perfumed scent of black cherries, ripe plum, toasty vanilla and exotic spices. On the palate, deep, rich and complex with a piquant quality to the fruit. Nicely balanced with a lingering finish. Will give Bordeaux and Cabernets a run for the money.

    Avalon Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
    Sold Out $13.99
    2012 vintage available for $16.99
    This is a classic example of blended wines which seek to satisfy a sweetness threshold. At first sip, it seemed fine, but with air just kept getting sweeter and became undrinkable.

    Kendall-Jackson Summation Red Blend 2006
    Sold Out $14.99
    2011 vintage available for $16.99
    I had great hopes for this because I love a good Meritage, but it turned out to be thin, sharp and lacking flavor. Maybe an off-bottle, but just seemed to be falling apart rather quickly.

    Creta Roble 2006
    Sold Out $16.79
    2011 vintage available for $15.99
    I agreed with most of the comments: Nice dark color, lovely nose, full flavors...but then you come to the finish and it's thin and astringent. Seems to be drying out over time, the alcohol is winning the battle here. I prefer the Finca Reslsa from Emilio Moro. Check my review at: www.ramblingcork.com

    Crios de Susana Balbo Torrontes 2009
    Sold Out $13.99
    2013 vintage available for $13.99
    I loved this wine. I wasn't that wild about the 2007 but this is a knockout. Aromatic, fresh and vibrant, mouthwatering finish. You can't beat it. Check my review at: www.ramblingcork.com
