    This was a very good wine, that is complex, with a fair amount of tannin. It has a wet approach and a dry finish. The taste is very cherry and plum forward, with vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon undertones. The undertones bring out a complexity and depth to the cherry and plum that otherwise would not be accessible. We highly recommend this wine to anyone who wants to try a wine from Argentina for the first time.

    This was a terrible wine that tasted like rotten breadfruit. This wine should be avoided at all costs.

    We had the 2004 vintage of this wine. This wine was an odd combination of dry and wet. While being dry on approach, in the middle, and in the finish, it also slightly gave the impression of a wet wine at the same time at the finish. This made the wine very interesting to drink and opened up the bouquet further. This wine has the flavor of cherries, blackberries, and a perfectly balanced amount of minerals. This was a great introduction into Chilean wine.

    This is a great wine with the bite of a rose wine. A clear white wine that tastes like honey, sweet cream, green apple, and crisp minerals. The bouquet includes rosehips and aged oak. Everyone should try this wine!

    This was our first South African wine and it was fantastic! It has a nice yet mild aroma of sweet butter, warm toffee, and mild coffee, and apple pie. It is a very sweet wine, and it tastes like it smells. Great as a sipping wine on a hot day or as a dessert wine. Highly recommended.

    This French wine has a dry start and a wet finish, and is, at first, watery and shy. Once it is properly aeroated it is very complex. It has a deep cherry and mineral flavor, with earthy undertones. The aroma is similar. There is also a fair amount of acidity which complements the wine.

    The aroma of this wine is a lovely combination of cherry, lemon, lime, and cedar. It is a dry wine all the way through, and has the flavors of freshly turned earth, black cherry, and chocolate, with undertones of espresso. Fantastic pinot noir.

    This wine smells like a Riesling and a pinot gris mixed together. It tastes like cherry and blood orange, a high amount of minerals, and an aftertaste of spearmint and strawberries. Very good rose wine!

    This was our first French wine. We never thought of ourselves as French wine drinkers, and had tried everything we could first to avoid the French wines. Eventually we broke down and had one, and now we wish we had tried them earlier. This wine has an aroma of cherry, plum, apricot, and incense. There is also a oak and tobbaco scent, that goes beyond just tobbaco to the smell of tobbaco leaves before they are picked. The taste is just as it smells, with a wet approach and middle, with a slight dry and long lingering finish. This is a delicious sipping wine that needs to be appriciated without food, especially because there is a slight alcohol taste at first before the other flavors come forward. We highly recommend this wine!

    This was the second tempranillo we have had, and this one was the best yet! It is bright ruby red, lots of sediment and a high sugar content. This wine is 90% tempranillo and 10% mazuelo. It has a oaky and deep earth aroma, mixed with the scents of cherry and plum. The taste follows the aroma, with the strong taste of the vines being the primary taste, with the cherry and plum undertones firmly in place. There was also a slight note of lime for some acidity. At first and in the middle of the drink it is very wet, and has a dry finish. This wine is terrific with stews and red meats.
