screw cap wine
This smooth, super Tuscan wine (read chianti without the markup) goes great with chicken and pasta as the spicy bouquet and flavor and medium body are just robust and distinctive enough to be enjoyable and not overpowering. The winemakers switched the percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes used from 2005, and this shows as it is much smoother on the palate.
A tart, piquant, and Sahara-dry red with a peppery finish, it's a Malbec with fruity and floral aromas and medium body and bold, sweet flavors (though not as strong as Zinfandel). It's great with pork chops and some hard cheeses, and will only improve with age, mellowing out some.
Dark red and purplish in hue, the Hogue Genesis 2006 has fruity aroma and flavor (red berries) and a spicy finish. The wine lacks sufficient body and tastes a bit watery. While it's drinkable, there are definitely bottles that are just as good at lower cost.
A friendly pinot noir with fruity notes, it has round, cherry and cranberry flavors with a slight, peppery finish that doesn't last long. It went fine with my sauteed chicken.
