So far, this has been my favorite champagne I have tried. I havent ventured farther than around 40-50$ for a bottle, but I have tried a handful of others in this price range and this one is my favorite. Has a very full spectrum of flavors and there is a sense of refinement that is missing in other champagnes. Toasty and fresh with a lingering finish and a hint of sweetness, this bottle is sure to please.
Smooth & Supple
Absolutely exquisite bouquet at this price point. I havent tried many Cabs compared to some, but I would dare say this is my favorite so far. Rich and full of black cherry flavors...a subtle hint of sweetness complements the perfect mouthful of tannins. I highly recommend this wine!
Fruity & Smooth
Excellent on the palate...bursts of grape Muscat flavor, and very honey-like as noted by the winemaker. Floral notes are also noticeable but delicate and refined. This is somewhat of a sweet blend, but not over-powering by any means. Very well orchestrated. Excellent!
A light, misty rose color flows through this champage giving it a hint of strawberry and cherry flavors. Starts out with a subtle, yet refined burst of flavors at the beginning then mellows out to a crisp vanilla finish. Very easy to like on all levels. Highly recommended for less than $20.
This was the first time that even my unrefined palate could detect every nuance of flavor that the wine maker listed on the back of their bottle. Immediate notes of cedar and Earth upon opening the bottle. An underlying peppery tone complements the lovely deep berry flavors. A wonderfully complex and delicious bottle of wine for 10$. I will absolutely buy this again.
Smooth & Supple
This was the first wine I have ever tried where a clear raspberry note was detected. This wine has a wonderful berry-laden finish on the palate and was an absolute pleasure to drink. Sweeter than what I expected--but not overly so--which was a nice surprise. Certainly much different from the 2006 Falernia Syrah I tried which was much more Earthy and spicier. Excellent wine for 10$.
An extremely solid cabernet that is very pleasant to drink. Has a wonderfully smooth quality. Hints of bing cherry and spice complement this very tasty wine. Exceptional value for 8.99. My love for wines from South America has not been diminished...
This was definitely NOT the 2009 which was such a splendid blanc. The wine still had the good "grapey" flavor of the 2009, but fundamentally lacked depth. Go for the 2009 if you can find it!
This wine had a nice spicy finish that I cant describe. Didnt have quite the acidity I was looking for--the wine is more akin to a chardonnay than pinot gris. A tasty choice with lots of melon overtones, but it didnt blow my mind.
