I know that we didn't spend a lot for this but we were still disappointed and expected more. It had a bit of an odd taste that we couldn't identify. We gave it an 85 because we thought it was much better with food. We like SB because it generally works well with or without food. We will get through our remaining bottles but will not buy more. Not sure where the 94 came from???
Solid SB. Mineral, citrus and Peach. Very tasty summer white.
Big & Bold
Nice nose. First taste reminded me of an unseasoned nice steak just off the grill. This was a better wine than I expected it to be. I was worried about grabbing a case but now glad that I did. Decant for an hour or so and enjoy.
Not impressed right out of the bottle. We grabbed a case of this for our club's red. Opened the first bottle two days ago. Initial taste OK but a bit sharp. After sitting a bit in the glass, the tannins smoothed out and the fruit began to show through. Should be good for our purpose.
Nice fruit and very smooth at a very nice price. If you are a Merlot lover, what is not to like?
We took a few days off and went to the beach. Too cold to swim but this was one of the bottles we popped for casual drinking. Still young but improved steadily after opening. Nice fruit and balance after several hours. This has now become a regular favorite.
Opened for 3 hours followed by 1 hour decant. All four of us thought that it was one of the best we have had. Awesome bottle. Silky smooth. Great fruit with promise for continued improvement. I have 2 bottles left and plan to drink in 2013 and 2016
Opened with a group and needed a second bottle. All liked it very much. Perfect level of sweetness to drink alone or tame spicy food.
Fruit Forward with smooth Tannins.
We purchased this because the reviews were good and our Daughter's name is Paula. We were very surprised to find that the fruit was very evident after a 1 hour sit. It was well balanced with mild tannins. It should be good for a couple more years at least. A very nice bottle for the price.
