I am drinking this Pinot while writing this note. It has a rather bland taste - not full-bodied at all in my opinion. However, it is relatively smooth for a $8 wine. But, it tastes almost like it's watered down. Very liquidy - not thick. It doesen't have a good nose either. It's not a really bad wine; I've had worse wines at higher prices. I'm on the fence about buying it again- the price is really cheap - it definitely tastes better than it's price. But I'd rather spend $15 more for a better Pinot, like a Twelve Clones Santa Lucia Highlands Morgan for example. Unfortunately, it isn't available here, but you can get it at BevMo.
I've seen the good ratings on this Merlot and wanted to see what all the fuss was about! I brought this wine to a friend's place for Thanksgiving. She was nice enough to open it for both of us to taste. This Merlot is supple and packs cherry fruit flavor and has a lengthy finish. A truly enjoyable wine. At $50, it isn't cheap, but it's worth every penny. I'm just glad I got two bottles - looking forward to opening the second one soon!
Ahhh! Rubicon Estate. If you have ever been to the Estate in Napa, you would know why this wine costs North of $130! However, price goes up with demand. And this wine is in demand. Such a wonderful symphony of richness and smooth tannins. Incredible bouquet and long-lasting finish. This is one of my favorite wines. Got a promotion? Want to celebrate? You were invited to a high-end dinner party? Bring this wine and they will adore you!
I brought this wine to a friend's for dinner. We were having a nice London Broil and this wine was a perfect pairing. It is smooth, yet has an explosive bouquet. It goes down quite easily... just a yummy wine for such a low price. Try it!
The Franciscan is a solid Cabernet. It isn't a cheap wine, but it always tastes good. A full-bodied, dense wine - it will always please. This is a must-have for your wine cellar.
