First tried this on a whim in 2006. It is a great desert wine by itself or poured on ice cream, or other deserts. Be aware it is very sweet, so use it lightly!
I got my first bottle of this from the wine club and wanted to buy more after tasting it, but it wasn't available. I bought a bottle of the 2004 instead. The 2004 did not impress me like the 2005 did. Thinking I may have been misled when I drank the 2005 I bought two more bottles the 2005 (now in stock) and the 2004. I'd intended to do a blind test, but opened the 2005 tonight and was immediately impressed again. Now the 2004 will just have to sit and wait as I'm going to order more of the 2005! :) This wine is very enjoyable from the aroma to the taste. I like this wine alone and with heavier foods.
Very enjoyable. Started of with cheese, which paired quite well. Had some with seafood which wasn't near as good a pairing. Finished off after dinner and it became very enjoyable again.
I got this wine in my first wine club shipment and it remains my favorite wine. Very smooth flavor. I enjoyed drinking it by itself and with various foods (including Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners).
Bought this wine in search for a replacement for the Figuero Ribera del Duero 2005 - which is no longer available. While the Figuero is a bit different (more smooth), the Emilio has more complexities making it a bit superior. The Figuero is still very nice and I'm saving my last bottle, but am getting more of this as my standard Tempranillo.
Second month in a row a Sauvignon Blanc came in our wine club shipment. The first was the Source Napa Gamble Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2005. I think the Source bottle was a bit better than this one, but the Gusto held its own. Great taste, and very enjoyable. Will be getting more of this one.
This was very mild. The aroma was no where near the quality of other viogniers I've had. This was an enjoyable wine, but just didn't hold up to what I expect of a viognier.
From the first taste, both my wife and I were very impressed with this wine. It is very crisp with excellent flavors. Will be a great wine to enjoy during the warm summer months.
