  • Gato Negro Cabernet-Merlot 2014


    Drank this with some triple-meat pizza (pepperoni, sausage, and bacon). The flavors complimented well, and it was plenty good the next night as a standalone as well. One I drank was 2015, so from last year. More than happy to buy it again. Convenience note - this one has a screw top. Read More

  • Caiti 2014


    Huge Burgundy coloration with purple/garnet hues. There is huge cherry aromas upon popping the cork and immediately after, this dissipated in favor of blueberry, blackberry, and plumy cherry. Flavors follow suit with a little more spice, albeit subtle, along with super berry flavor, vanilla bean, cocoa, and very mild caramel sweetness....aweso... Read More

The aromas are very much of rich, ripe dark berry, muted black peppery spice and slightly meaty. The flavors follow suit but become even longer and a... Read More
