It's fine, but it came in second to a Ventana Rhone knockoff in blind tasting. I liked it better at first, but it's a little less layered than the Ventana, and not a long finish. It didn't open up a lot after decanting and sitting, either, which is why the Ventana beat it out in the end. There's a lot of good stuff in the price range ($12) so I probably won't go out of my way if this is what it's like in supposedly the best year ever for the Rhone.

My personal favorite of the chardonnays I tasted tonight. Aromas of creme fraiche and pear. Flavors of pear, apple, sour cream,and grapefruit pith on the finish, which is of medium length. Very fresh and subtle, this is a wine for those who don't like the big California style. Excellent value.

This came as a house wine but wasn't a bad effort. Bright fruit on the nose and a little buttery on the palate. I prefer temps to have a little more zest but this one was ok.

Raspberry and cherry, mostly. Nice, not very complex, but I think a good value at under $12. Should be even better with a little more time.

Not a bad buy at 12 clams, but pretty simple in flavor profile. Nice to see some acid in this ripe year, but the body of this wine seems a bit thin to hold it.

Simple, but friendly - expect to meet all the berry basics of a nice Rhône. Great for drinking without food.

Opaque at the core with a brilliant ruby rim. Aromas of freshly picked cherry, black raspberry, boysenberry jam and violet fill the nose. Silky texture on the palate, pepper and spice complement the array of black fruit flavors nicely. Ripe, but with... Alex Lallos.

Fresh, dry and easy drinking. You can't go wrong with this Rosé. Made from a mother/daughter team from the south of France.
