    Faustino I Gran Reserva 2001
    $37.99
    Style: Smooth & Supple
    Bought a couple of bottles based on the price and rating. Tried one last evening along with an upper-mid priced CA pinot and Cab. Faustino blew them both away.

    Had a "wine emergency" the other night - was running out of bottles at home - so opened this before I wanted to. After 30 mins in the decanter is was very good...fruity, velvety and bold at the same time. It will be better with another year or so in the bottle, but I was very pleasantly surprised. On the other hand, Po Cesare rarely disappoints me.

    Punto Final Malbec Reserva 2011
    Sold Out $19.99
    2012 vintage available for $21.99
    Style: Earth & Spicy
    Hate to be the skunk at the garden party, but I found this to be an average wine. EVen after 90 minutes of air the tanins were still too strong, the fruit mostly hidden. That said - for the price it is a pleasant enough drink... and after 2 hours of air the fruit did emerge...so if you're going to open it, do so well in advance of drinking it.

    Fattoria del Cerro Rosso di Montepulciano 2011
    Sold Out $15.99
    2012 vintage available for $12.99
    Style: Earth & Spicy
    I have to agree with "mobdude". This is a very average wine. Which is fine, given the price point, but the ratings are off by a substantial amount. This isn't bad - it just isn't anything special or noteworthy at all.

    Stags' Leap Winery Petite Sirah 2010
    Sold Out $43.99
    2011 vintage available for $39.99
    Style: Big & Bold
    A nice wine and very true to the old-style Petite's - and I mean that as a compliment. Most definitely picked up the clove and white pepper. It needs at least an hour of air to open..and though I enjoyed it, think it is over-priced by $5 - $10...at least at this stage of its development.

    Robert Mondavi Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
    Sold Out $135.00
    2007 vintage available for $209.00
    Style: Big & Bold
    If I was going to be stranded on a desert island the rest of my life but could have a lifetime supply of one and only one wine...This or BV La Tour would be it. My problem is letting it alone so it can get some cellar age...should be spectacular down the line.

    Fattoria Viticcio Chianti Classico Riserva 2009
    Sold Out $29.99
    Style: Big & Bold
    Perhaps a bad bottle - and we didn't decant before drinkiing - but expecting much better from a 94 pt. wine. Was harsh and almost bitter throughout.

    Kenwood Jack London Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
    Sold Out $26.99
    2011 vintage available for $32.99
    Style: Big & Bold
    This will be very good in several more years. At the moment it is still very tight and tannic...though drinkable if you want a really "old style" California cab reminiscent of the 70's.
