    Snoothrank:

    This is one of the first wines I bought and tried on my own and I was disappointed. I found it to be very weak with little to no flavor. Read More

  • Cadet d'Oc Moscato 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Yuk. Label promises intense tropical fruit with notes of Rose & Jasmine. Nope, not to me. What I taste is very pungent. Dry, slight bubbles, almost amber color. That's about it, cracker please. Read More

  • Imagery Estate Winery Wow Oui Pine Mountain Cloverdale Peak 2013

    Snoothrank:

    I helped my wife finish off a bottle of this, last night. Perfectly functional wine, very fruity but still refreshing. In all honesty, though, it's not one that I would seek out. Read More

  • Gabriele Moscato 750m 2012

    Snoothrank:

    I found this bottle of wine in a local shop.

I loved this wine from the first sip. I will continue to purchase it as long as the store carries it. Read More
