    Undrinkable. Sickly sweet with chemically jam notes. Awckward, and either over the hill, or way too young.

    Big fat wine with a light sweetness and loads of pineapple. This is a wine for the people and of the people. Simple easy to drink and full of fruit. At the price point and with the fat fruit this is a wine that anyone can enjoy at parties and just hanging out.

    Pale yellow color with a classic nose for this wine. Roses, lot's of lychees, and fat fruit. Touches of minerality make this wine a bit more complex with a touch of vanilla. In the mouth this is a very oily wine, with a rich mouthfeel that coats and a medium to mild acidity that I wish was a bit higher. Talk about lychees, if you've never tasted one you can say you have after drinking this. Lot's of rose and overall a rich fat wine that is fun to drink, albiet in need of some rich wild salmon to go with it.

    Wow this nose is unique on a pale gold body. Apple and almost a note of celery come to mind at first with a bakcground of, I know it sounds silly, but smokey minerals. Dusty almost, with a light whiff of smoke. Nice and clean. In the mouth it is a bit oily with a fresh acidity that shows towards the finish but it not pronounced. Fresh peach, and green fig notes. Nice body overall and I think this might be a nice choice for a white wine with heavier fish.

    Light gold color to this wine with a nose that is fresh and lively. Muted pears and cream mix with minerals to allow for a unique and pretty nose. In the mouth the wine is fresh with a bright acidity with creamy mouthfeel. Lush nectarine and peach notes with a freshness that is welcome. Nothing amazing but a wine that is perfect for a light meal or just sipping in the summer with a good book in your hands.

    Intense dark, inky flavor, insanely dark. At first a big hit of green pepper that starts to blow off, though tons of cassis, and black pepper. Tight in the mouth with an intensity that is very rich. Tannins are starting to fade though the acidity is very rich and still a bit sharp. Rich and full, though a bit out of blalance, The acidity needs to chill out to come to fruitition.

    Still rich and round. Full of depth. Nice wine with a few more years left on it. 3.5/5 [NR]

    Pale but nice red, with a nose that is sour not in a bad way but rather a cranberry way! A bit of light cream comes in for an austere nose that once in the mouth screams TCA :-(

    Inky dark again on this vintage, deep at the core, with a nose that is restrained and more charcoally, Lush in the mouth with a softness that hides deep tannins and a medium acidity. Pencil lead notes and minerals remind me of Bordeaux with a tightness that needs a couple of hours to give up it's secrets.

    Inky deep red color to this wine with glints of blackish night. The nose is intense with some charcoal, wood and deep fruit notes, yet it seems to retain a nice crisp freshness with blueberry and blackberry qualities. Full in the mouth this is a serious wine with some heavey rich tannins that are in need of air. Huge copius amounts of dark fruit, rich spice and tartness from an acidity that plays the balancer well. I will say the alcohol is a bit too much on the finish, though I do want to taste this again in 5yrs or so.

    Nice rich red, light enough to be rose, but pure in color. Watermelon nose, really pure, and light, if not delicate. Like a watermelon jolly rancher in someways this wine is candy like and well constructed. Zesty acidity leaves the mouth crisply and overall a great treat. Have this with some butter roasted chicken to really fall in love with it.

    Pale gold color with a perfect albarino nose. LIght smokey cream sits at the base of great flesh fruit flavors and floral minerals. Wow that is a hard one to grab, but really this is a nice nose that will keep you going to back to figure it out. In the mouth this wine is fat, and round with lots of nice body, though a light finish. Lime notes mix with that cream from before and the nectarine notes that make me go back for more. Towards the finish I picked up some touches of honeydew or other white melon. Fun summer white that I highly recommend.
