The nose was reminiscent of summer days with watermelons, fresh sliced apples and floral undergrowth. On the palate, a refreshing wave of fruits washed over the senses with a hint of sweetness and a perfect dose of refreshing acidity. The hardest thing about tasting this wine is that I just wanted to keep drinking it.

You know, I really loved this. It's pale cherry in color, slightly cloudy, and almost the color of a very dark Spanish rose. Whew! Aromas of barnyard, manure, and fertilizer lose there overpowering quality quickly, but the smell of topsoil remains to accompany the raspberry notes. Sour cherry and pomegranate seed flavors. Best with food--sausages, cheese. A good red for chilling slightly in summertime.

Had a 2005 at Thanksgiving and it was spectacular! A lighter Cab/Sav, but incredibly silky and nice fruit with a light finish that went well with the dinner. Finished another bottle later with a great cigar!

Robert Parker 93 Points 3 Bicchieri in the Gambero Rosso Marco Sartori is a very driven young man! In a few short years he has gone from making his first vintage to one of the hottest talents in the region. All the wines produced by this modern new winery are world class. Marcos philosophy is very simple; reduce the yield in the vineyard to 1kg per vine and you can obtain fabulous fruit concentration. Grapes : 60% Corvina , 15% Corvinone, and 15% Rondinella Region : Italy / Veneto / Recioto di Valpolicella DOCG Maker : Marco Sartori Taste : Aromas of coffee, cocao and ripe plums with a jammy spicy bouquet with hints os tobacco and liquorice. Complex, elegant and rich offering many different sensations on the palate and a persistent aroma. Long, lush finish of a delightful wine that will mature over the next 10 to 15 years. Serve : An ideal partner for Roquefort, Stilton or chocolate. Also makes the ideal digestif. ABV : 14.5% Suitable for Vegetarians

Incredibly smooth with fruity and vibrant flavours. A fully round and fresh wine with a smooth, lasting finish. The wines of Cazal Viel amply demonstrate why the Languedoc is to some the most exciting wine region on earth. Here, the Syrah and the Viognier reach an apogee rarely attained elsewhere. The mission of the Miquel family is to make wines that epitomise the character and complexity of the terroir. They have owned the property for over 200 years. Their philosophy underpins everything they do: top class vineyard maintenance using natural methods, ensuring very low yields on all the vines; scrupulous attention to detail at harvest-time and individual vinification of each of their 92 parcels. Grapes : Syrah 95%, Mourvèdre 5% Region : France / Languedoc / Saint Chinian AOC Maker : Laurent Miquel Notes : Incredibly smooth on the palate with fruity and vibrant flavours typical of this region. A fully round and fresh wine with a smooth, lasting finish. ABV : 14%

Located in Lucinico, in the most eastern part of the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region of Collio. For Generations, Attems has been synoymous with winegrowing in Collio. The Attems family has always held the conviction that a wine's quality and character derive from its local growing area. The Frescobaldi family purchased the estate in 2011 after years of collaboration between the two families. Grapes : Pinot Grigio 100% Region : Italy / Friuli Venezia Giulia Maker : Gianni Napolitano Notes : Rich tropical fruit along with apple and pear. The palate is refined, smooth and pleastantly tangy. Serve: Poultry and stuffed meat dishes. ABV : 12.50%
