I got into wine about 50 years ago. Started with French wines and in the mid-seventies got into California wine. And now I am a fan of almost every popular wine region.

    Had this 10 year old wine and was surprised how fresh and lively it was. Beautiful color and on the nose loads of cherry and red berries. On the palate the cherry and berry flavors dominated along with medium tannins. The finish was medium plus. I thought I was drinking a much younger wine. A wonderful wine.

    A joy to drink. Very Fresh with balanced fruit with light to medium tannins. Brilliant color. A finish that was medium.

    So fresh and elegant. Gorgeous red color. Not much sediment. Not much on the nose. Upon tasting I picked up dark fruits in the background. Tannins were still there but light to medium. The finish was medium. The freshness of this 11 year old wine was remarkable.

    Soft, Elegant with a hint of fruit to make it interesting. A perfect match for Chicken Picatta.

    Salmon color. Raspberry, some strawberry and a bit of watermelon on the nose. These fruits are way in the background when this wine hits the palate. Overall, a fairly dry rose with a short finish. Well made and perfect for summer indulgence. Enjoy drinking it alone or with light foods.

    This is classic mountain (Howell Mt.) cabernet sauvignon. The color couldn't be any darker. Bouquet is of dark fruits of plum and cherry and a hint of damp earth. On the palate an explosion of dark fruits, more than I would expect from a mountain cab, along with an earthiness. Tannins are there but really not overpowering. The finish is fairly long. This wine is drinkable now and possibly for several more years.

    A perfect Valpolicella. Nice acidity with fairly light tannins. Went well with our pasta and meatballs and sausage. My home made pasta sauce was perfect for this wine. This wine can probably last for several more years.

    Did not expect this syrah to be so youthful. Beautiful dark red color. Nice black pepper on the tongue along with medium tannins.A nice medium finish. Lots of dried dark fruits. All in all this wine was a pleasant surprise and has many more years to go.

    Refreshing and slightly dry. This is how I like "ROSE". Uvaggio is a California wine and does not use Italian grapes. How can it be called ROSATO?
