    Light fruit on the nose, but, also, some fungal notes. Light red fruit, maybe, plum. on the tip of the tongue. VERY sedate tannins. This one is so easy to drink--no harshness no bitterness. A (minty?) herbal suggestion on the rear palalte. Excellent QPR.

    A blend of three grape varieties: Albarino, Caino, and Loureiro. Very pretty clear golden color. Fairly floral nose. Very light and crisp. Light stone fruit on entry. Super tart. Very simple wine. Good for summer sipping with only the lightest of meals.

    Oh boy. This one is in a good spot right now. Charming red fruit on entry. Still supportive but definitely not obtrusive tannin provides good structure. Acid provided refreshment. Winner, winner.

    Opened from my vault and let a glass sit for about a half-hour before tasting. Viney or herbaceous nose. However, as the wine warms up a bit I’m starting to get a cocoa or mocha thing. A bit stark on entry. Light hit of various red-fruit flavors—red plum, red cherry. Something of a hint of coffee or, maybe, nuttiness around the edge of the tongue. A touch hot, but, again, as the wine warms up, that seems to diminish to nothingness. Tannin and acid to notice, but fairly sedate. So, tannophobes should be OK with this one. Not a terribly long, but a very satisfying, finish.

    Nice and crisp. Suggestion of citrus—lemon, thankfully, not the grapefruit that seems too overdone with SBs. Very clean—no grassiness or herbalness. A very straightforward easy drinker.

    Lots of blue makes the color more purple than red. Interesting. This one is a mouthful. Very chewy, almost, not quite, jammy on the tongue. Strong tannin. I’m pretty sure this not my favorite DCV Zin. It’s not bad, but it just seems overripe, to me.

    Gentle introduction of purple fruit on entry. Solid tannin and good acid. Terrific, lengthy finish.

    Gentle on entry. Very light flavors of cassis, blueberry on the tip of the tongue. Some earthiness. Sturdy tannins and acid. I suppose that aging will not hurt this wine, but I really don’t see any reason to not enjoy this wine now.

    Something of a phenolic nose. Lots of red fruit on entry—strawberry, plum—and I should add tart fruit. Some tingling around the edges of the tongue—another indication of acid. An unfortunate harshness at the back of the palate. It’s not clear to me whether this is from acid or alcohol. Noticeable, but not abusive tannin. For some reason or other this wine seems to be greater than the sum of its parts. None of the component really wow me, but I am enjoying this wine.

    Fruity nose, but with noticeable alcohol. A LOT of red fruit—raspberry, cherry, stone fruit--on entry. Then you are smacked by alcohol—hot and bitter. I bought this bottle at an Italian deli a couple weeks ago. It has probably been laying on the shelf there for 5 or 6 years. So, it is entirely possible that the compromised storage has forced this wine into a death spiral.
