Huge apple, raisin and walnut aromas greet the nose with an underlying buttery brioche richness to them. Less opulent in the mouth than the nose suggests, this shows fine acids supporting fruit that is fairly ripe with an edge of aged complexity emerging early on the palate and lingering right through the moderately long finish. the fruit, very apple toned with a baked edge, is enlivened by the bright acidity here but it retains some heaviness and caramel from its time spent in wood. 85pts

I really enjoyed this wine. Nicely spiced, deep berry fruits and well balanced. Good wine for the price and I would definitely take it to a dinner party. Beautiful with red meat and fowl.

Meh. Medium and relatively undistinguished fruit and spice. Little finish of note. Not actually bad, but at the price, no star. Fat? I think not.

Cherry color with violet highlights. Lovely perfumed bouquet with wonderful fruit (raspberry, blueberry) mixed with floral and spicy notes. Attractive on the palate, with smooth tannins and a slightly jammy note. The finish is long, perfumed and elegant. Pair with white meat, roasts and strong cheeses.

This well-focused French red shows black cherry, meaty and herbal notes typical of the varietal, in a round, soft package that has just enough grip to accompany food. Fresh and flavorful, it's made for drinking now, at a price that invites you to imbibe freely.

Smooth and fairly fleshy, with red plum and cassis, and flaovrs of coffee and chocolate on the finish.

Exploding with raspberry and blackberry aromas and notes of pepper and spice. Light-bodied and balanced; perfectly accompanies beef and cheese.

A straightforward, medium-bodied Merlot, with earthy smoked bacon notes mingling nicely with plum and sweet berrylike flavors. It is crisp, with moderate tannins and a pleasant finish.

Light tannins provide a chocolate-textured richness to this soft Merlot - good choice for burgers or pepperoni pizza.
