Nice blend of around 50% Cab, Merlot, and a handful of other bordeaux varietals. This wine can taste a little disjointed with oak and acidity, but it has a great core of fruit that wins out, making it a nice drink at a reasonable price. Coming from a...

Somewhat "closed" after initial pour. Never really opened up the first evening. Day two was much better with layers of fruit and tannins well integrated. My feeling though is that you can get wines this good that are a better value, and ready to drink ...

Really lasted well and developed better than the more heralded '07. Blackberry and a tart choke cherry, with spice and chocolate on the nose lead to a plate that is somewhat dry with slightly chewy tannins and balanced aciditty. Drink now Paul 90 points

Winemaker labeled it as a semi sweet wine, but when you drink it, you feel like it was sweet. The taste lasts for a long time. You could drink it without any meal, but it is much better with fish. This is one of my favorite vines.

Definitely one of the better ones from Tesco. Bold dark cherryness throughout, so easy to drink. Beautiful.
|Region:||Argentina » Mendoza » Valle de Uco » La Consulta|
Smooth, easy to drink, moderate nose. Berries, cherries, some plums. Not sophisticated, but pleasing - better than, or as good as, other malbecs that cost 3-4 USD more, which is an additional recommendation.
Big almond and lemon verbena aromas greet the nose with hints of lemongrass and quartz adding complexity. This opens with fine acidity supporting flavors that have a subtle meaty edge to them little. Texturally this is bright, clear and moderately ten...

This is my desert island wine. If I could drink this for the rest of my life I would not be upset. Controlled bomb o'fruit. Perfect for the first snowy night of this winter as it really warms the soul. Paired it with kung pao marinated skirt steak. Co...

We drank this celebrating the Holidays with Lou, Pete, Rich, and Jim. An impressive sparkling wine at this price point; all the better to buy and drink more for special occasions! In terms of tasting notes, the others have summed it up well.

This article does a good job informing us about the business of wine production in California. California wine-making country is on the decline and suffers from tighter margins. There are quite a few wine-makers which were unable to weather the financial stress of 2008-2009 and are now defaulting, leading to distressed property values in the ar... Read More
In reply to Guiseppino, acidic does not equal vinegary. Yes, Gallo's burgundy has more acidic bite than you'd expect for a normal California wine. If you are more familiar with Italian table wines, whether Sangiovese, Merlot, Nero d'Avola, or more obscure grapes in basis, this blended red will make you feel right at home. No, it's not gourmet... Read More
Hi, As the title says I'm new. I don't know a lot about wine...yet. So here;s my first question: Is it true that it's not worth it to buy a wine over 25$ (I'm a student)? Maybe as you progress, the "rules" change a little, but for a beginner, how much would you recommend I spend on wine? Usually I'm getting into the habit of spending 30-35$ per... Read More
Everyone has a favorite "just for fun wine"--one that you drink because it just tastes good. These fun wines are great to fall back on for parties or just enjoying at the end of the day. I had a great "fun" wine this weekend from Debonne Vineyards (Madison, OH) , Razzberry Riesling. The Raspberry brought out the flavors of the Riesling nicely an... Read More
Hi fellow snoothers,I posted a topic on Bottle shock, after opening a great bottle of wine I had just gotten, that tasted "off", dead finish, etc. Even the food I had with it in the past tasted off. SOOO, I chalked it up to bottle shock (since it wasn't corked or 2nd ferm). Well, today, food has been tasting odd. Then I opened some different... Read More
There is no better summer/party wine to be had. My lady and I call it "Italian champagne". Drink it in a Reidel flute "headache" cold. I am told it is a single fermentation Prosecco. Whatever, for the price and quality there is nothing better, especially at the holidays. With seafood: "FUGETABOUTIT" Excellent with Turkey at thanksgiving or Chris... Read More
Anyone else see this article in the WSJ? Just wondering if it is some sort of NYC fad or has someone come up with a new wine? Here is the link: http://thepour.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/10/08/orange-wine-edges-toward-the-mainstream-slightly/ Read More
My wife is a huge pinot noir fan. For her birthday in June I decided I want to get her a variety case of delicious pinots from around the world. Any suggestions for some great $20 bottles?? Read More
Hi my name is Tom. I have owned a small tavern in Northern WI for a couple years now. Believe it or not there is not a bottle of wine with a cork in it within 40 miles. I'm looking for suggestions for wines to serve that are priced between 8-15 dollars. I am currently not a big wine drinker and any help would be welcome.ThanksTom Read More
Ima bout to keep this shit motherfucking real rightchere. Aight, here the dilly; This is actually a quite delightful wine. For a "valued" price we would expect a much less sophisticated personality. I've come to expect the bite of lemon balm or the tartness of lime, something more for the chardonnay people. This is a wine that is all around i... Read More
