If you like oaky wines with a high alcohol content, you may really enjoy this collection. If you are used to wines having the 14.5% alcohol level or the amount of oak that is typical of New World wines, you will find these familiar. The Italian and French wines were very nice. Could be a great gift for someone into the California style of wine.
I have yet to have a bottle from a bad vintage of this wine. This wine is great for its price range and is a fine example of its type. Love it.
Very food friendly. Rating is given for the wine as compared to its price and type. It is an excellent wine value for this quality.
This is a very good wine. Not outstanding, but for the price, very good. Pretty fruity and minerally on the nose, and very crisp on the palate. Didn't really work with the cornish hens with an apricot dijon mustard glaze -- too acidic for that sweet glaze. An Alsacian Gerwurztraminer would have been better, I think. But this one is nice with salads or maybe shellfish.
This wine is great with food. I gave it 5 stars as a rating for its type - food-friendly, tasty, balanced, inexpensive wine. Better than many wines costing 3 times as much or more. It is one of our "house wines", along with the white version of the same thing, which costs about the same.
Smooth, but with a fair amount of character, especially for this price range.
