    The Spaniards of the region call it Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo). Hailing from Valdefinas, in the Toro region of Spain this wine has full, muscular body and a viscosity that complements its creamy texture. Dark purple rose in color and weaving aromas of black currants, violets, licorice and caramel. The bouquet blends into a palate of plums and dark chocolate, combining to create a soft but supple wine with a long dusty finish... very well balanced tannins & acidity. I agree with some of the other posts about it's masculine characteristics... I'll call it "handsome".

    This Napa Valley Syrah made by winemaker Heidi Peterson Barret has deep blueberry colors, with lot's happening on the nose: roasted marshmallows, tar, blackberry jam, black plum, rosehips, strawberries and eucalyptus. On the palate rich almost sweet blue fruits, hints of white pepper, dried cherries, licorice and marzipan with a nice long finish.

    It wasn't too difficult choosing the wine to have with our Christmas Eve dinner this year. I picked one given to me by a friend last year for Christmas called Il Poggione Brunello di Montalcino, a concentrated and full bodied, earthy Sangiovese. Warm ruby with rusty colors around the edges introduce aromas of leather, plums and vanilla on the way to intense flavors of cola, ripe black cherries, spices and a hint of smoked meats. There is also a floral note present somewhere in the background that floats along the way to the long elegant finish. Buon Natale

    The amazing aromas and flavors literally burst forward from this red wine, perfectly reminding me of autumn. Spicy ripe cherry aromatics explode followed by violets, while flavors arise full of cassis, and raspberries. Richly textured with good acidity and providing a full mouth feel, then gliding into a long silky finish that continues on and on.

    ...Looking in the glass like it was poured from an inkwell... dark, brooding and daring, this Gigondas matches in the strength of its aromas: waves of violets, herbs, blueberry, and plum followed by a smoky minerality. Then onto the palate with big, contrasting flavors of gamey meats, black pepper, tea and black cherries. All combine to create a very complex package with a silky finish. This definitely will age well, but is very approachable now.

    Animal and gamey on the nose, resinous with vegetal and leather notes, with a palate of blackberries, blueberries, that finishes a little flat and loses interest at the end.

    I think this might have been just past the curve... but strangely enough worked well with risotto... it did have a few interesting qualities like aromas of Vinsanto/Moscata, melon, cantelope, apple compote with over-ripe fruits. The color was an amber yellow, a bit darker than it probably should be.

    Blue ruby colors paint this with INTENSE wood aromas, sour cherries, chocolate, black cherries cough syrup, unique, pruny and velvety... with a kick... 16% alcohol! I loved this wine

    A red wine from the Gigondas Appellation in the Rhone region of France, and made from 100% Grenache grapes, this rich Gigondas opened very nicely as the evening went on. Lush and velvety on the tongue with good depth, showing verdant aromas of animal nuances, the bouquet evolving in waves of plums, dark berries, earth, mushroom and at the very end a bit of green peppers. All these elements successfully make "the whole greater than the sum of the parts" resulting in a finish that is complex and thoroughly satisfying.

    From the Abruzzo appellation comes this deeply colored, medium bodied red wine from Italy, made with 100% Montepulciano and aged in Slavonian oak. Fresh aromas of cassis, plums and red currant lie beneath a layer of subtle fruit with earthy overtones of spices, specifically cinnamon, with a suggestion of herbs. Its pleasant but basic simplicity makes this a good everyday wine that will go well with pizza, pasta or even some chicken dishes.
