Added Nov 17, 2010 at 7:08pmmedium bodied, silky tannins, a little hot. mouthwateringly tart at the same time. aromas of violet, dried cranberries, very clean. sad that it's not more earthy. average finish.

Chateau Florie Aude 2009
Added Oct 13, 2010 at 7:12pmmedium purple, lighter bodied than expected for the color density. balanced, perhaps a tiny bit flabby. on the nose, oak mulch, blackberry, plum skin, juicy juicy dark fruit. quaffable. impressively smooth tannins for the youth of this wine. medium finish. nice.

Gruet Brut NVCompare and Buy

Added Sep 16, 2010 at 7:19pmmost delicious New Mexican wine ever! but also, crisp green apple, creamy mousse, good balance of body and acidity, decent finish. quite quaffable.

Average Price: $73.68
Added Sep 9, 2010 at 4:19pmdeep ruby-purple, medium body and acid. eucalyptus and rubber tire dominate any possible fruit character. while this sounds kind of terrible, it's actually pretty decently generically Bordeaux-y and balanced. I would drink it again, but only at its closeout pricing.

Average Price: $57.37
Added Sep 9, 2010 at 4:11pmmedium in body, nose, and acidity. a still-youthful ruby. graphite, plum skin, grapeseed on the nose. pretty lightweight and silky tannins for such a wine. was expecting more; perhaps it's closed?

Average Price: $37.99
Added Aug 13, 2010 at 11:27amdeep garnet verging on purple. on the nose, I'm first confronted with the classic aroma of deeply toasted american oak - coconut, burnt toast. jammy overripe blackberries, berry leaf, white pepper follow, and a sip confirms mostly the fruit. evolved quite a bit after heavy swirling - more mineral, softer tannic structure. balanced level of tannins, acidity, and alcohol. a wonderful example of a classic american wine style (it's old vine zin, people!).

Added Aug 13, 2010 at 11:00ammedium pale straw. crisp stone fruits and lemon peel on the nose, a lusher-than-expected mouthfeel, mouthwatering acidity lingers in the finish. good QPR!
