Introduced to the love of wine by the Seghesio Red Zinfandel at the age of 19...Fast forward and the love remains and has grown exponentially; it's hard to imagine enjoying much more than a glass of wine, a book, music and a comfortable chair.

    I just had the 2005 bottle of this last night with a friend over dinner and it was wonderful. The blend was perfect to create a very smooth but with just enough hint of pepper to give it a little something more. We both had seafood dishes--mine was a lighter salmon and my colleague had a heavier skatewing dish, and the wine balanced with each of our meals very well. It can definitely stand on its own!

    This is a very nice Spanish wine with a nice bit of spice to it. It's perfect for what I bring for a "picnic wine" or other outdoor gathering events. It's simple, drinkable, and seems to please everyone.

    I don't know what year this Brazin listing is for, but the 2006 is wonderful! I saw it last night as a new addition to my local wine store and thought I'd give it a shot as I usually really like anything from the Lodi region, and I was not disappointed in the slightest. In fact, I think it's going to be included among my regular buys. It's a very smooth zinfandel with a very nice level of spice throughout versus the big POW at the end. I also got a hint of floral in there as well--albeit very slight but just enough to tease me into wanting more. Check it out and let me know if you agree!

    This is a standard buy from my local liquor store. A 2005 Bordeaux for only $12 is a fantastic deal, plus it has the flavor and body to back it up. I truly think that the store doesn't know what it's stocking, but I won't complain. The wine has a a lot of berry to it that's grounded with what smells/tastes like a good base of cocoa. There really isn't any part of it that overpowers you, but it definitely has an effervescence to it--I usually don't like that in a red wine, but in this case it works!

    This wine introduced me to the world of wine; I loved it all around and still pick up bottles of other vintages for a special treat--however of course none can compare to my first.

    This is a standard in my collection. Easy drinking wine with a good spice at the back end and with enough body to make it interesting without overpowering.
