    Gave it a swirl and got a bit of earth on the nose. Not enough of anything to really get me excited. Tannin towards the middle of the pallet, this however is balanced with a nice bit of acidity towards the finish. Finish reminds me of a salty/peppery cracker. As it breathes the earthiness becomes more prominent. A hint of green pepper that just isn't quite all there. Dark wine with a fairly light mouth feel. Smokey finish that is nice. Nose and front pallet leave a bit to be desired.

    Not much of a nose at all...a bit of cherry and some dark fruits. This wine is like a runner that saves everything for the finish. Again, not much to write home about on the mid pallet, but the finish has a nice full chocolaty mouth feel. Very soft and easy to drink this wine pairs well with just about anything. Overall for the $6.99 that I paid for it I would definitely pour this as an everyday dinner wine!

    Welcome to the candy shop. This wine starts off like a Werther's Original creamy and caramel like. The finish is like a sour apple pop. You remember the kind that gets stuck on the roof of your mouth. Let the wine warm up a bit and you get nice hints of honeydew up front and crisp lime on the finish. For all of you Sauvignon Blanc fans who have relatives/sig others/friends who only drink sweet wines this is a great option for a wine that both you and they will enjoy. It's a deck smasher so drink it while the summer heat is here!

    Nose starts off a bit hot with the nice bright cherries and a little bit of mint. The Oak can be picked up but it is subtle and inviting, almost like cheddar cheese. As expected out of a Paso Robles cab it is very smooth and velvety. The front of the pallet has tastes of chocolate covered cherries. The middle of the pallet reminds me of Andies mints like you get with your bill at a restaurant. The finish is full and lingers. Unfortunately the finish is really mostly feel and not so much flavor or complexity, small hints of strawberry that are nice. The finish is the only thing bringing down my rating on this wine. At $17.99 I would recommend this in my store but I would prefer to see it around $13.99.

    This prosecco has been given good reviews, and rightfully so. Bubbly being underrated, I jumped at the opportunity to drink it. I think a special occasion like a Wednesday night is perfect for a prosecco. As soon as I popped the cork, I could smell the typical fruits and pears expected from a brut. The front palate was light, with flavors of spring greens and fruits. The mid-palate had hints of mandarin oranges, which matured into green apples. The most pleasing part of this wine was the finish - it had nice minerality with a bit of crisp slate. At $14,99, it was definitely a great buy.

    Bordeaux is classically known for producing old-world styles that definitely contradict the fruit bombs we all know and love. This one did not disappoint. After breathing this wine showed some strong mineral qualities and round tannins that supported a charred and smokey finish. The nose of the wine began to transform into smells of radishes, green beans, and potatoes. All the essence of a salad grown from the soil of the land and the minerals that come from that soil. Great served with charred, blackened, broiled or grilled meats this Bordeaux was an average bargain at $14.99.

    Jip Jip Rocks 2007 Shiraz is your stereotypical Australian Shiraz with bold dark fruit flavors, lots of heat, and a dark (almost black) color. I feel that Parker's 90 point rating may be a bit of a stretch and I would place this wine more in the 87/88 point range. I did appreciate the lack of oak which tends to crowd out the fruit in some other popular Australian Shiraz (Peter Lehman for example). The nose on the first glass reminded me of a salty sea breeze with a bit of decaying seaweed, the second and third glasses found the nose to open up to the fruit and as expected the tannins to relax. All in all it was a great pour for $14.99 and I would definitely recommend this wine to be poured with some nice grilled meats.

    Soft sweet cherries and raspberries. Sweet oak covers most of the nose. Very soft with a mouth watering feel on the front pallet. The mid pallet has some cherry leading into a creamy taste like a cherry pie ala mode. The finish has hints of nutmeg and closes with nice soft tannins. This wine is very approachable. Not very complex and great for a special treat.

    At $7.99 I didn't have huge expectations from this wine, but was excited to have something different in my glass, being that I don't drink white Bordeaux on a regular basis.  The wine had great promise to start with interesting apple tones that seemed to transform in the glass.  The clean minerality in the finish wasn't a turn-off; I just couldn't quite grasp what it was trying to do.  The best thing about this wine is that it makes me want to put down a little more money and find another white Bordeaux that hopefully enhances the traits that Chateau. Vary was putting forth.

    I hardly know were to start with this week's Vino selection.  I have been on a search for new wine styles to try and in particular something new to drink on casual occasions.  I think I may have found this with El Coto's Rosado. As girly as drinking a pink wine can seem, don't let the stigmas of Berringer's White Zinfandel turn you off from this wine.  This blend of Grenache and Temperanillo from the Rioja region of spain had a great nose with gamy hints of jerky and the floral musk you might get in your grandmother's perfume.  The first sip was full of watermelon that has been lightly salted, something my grandfather used to do to bring out the sweetness of the watermelon. This wine would be perfect at a late evening barbecue in the middle of summer pairing well with corn on the cob, fruit salad and a fat pork chop.  Please do yourself a favor and give the pink stuff a try (not Pepto) and don't forget to introduce it to your friends!
