A touch dull on the nose with aromas of dried dates, apricots and a little vanilla and spice. This is polished and smooth, with some nice tannins and decent acidity, there's even some nice black currant, plum, and chocolate pudding flavors here, but they are very subtle. The fruit pops a bit with some strawberry notes on the back end, along with subtle herb notes, but this sort of evaporates on the finish. Nothing wrong here, this will offend no one but at the same time there is little to set it apart other than the price. 80pts

Ripe and full on the nose with cocoa and mocha top notes. Plenty of gently leafy black currant fruit and a touch of pickle barrel oak. Entering the mouth with a tea-like complexity, this is a touch soft and amply endowed with tannins but at the same time it delivers notable complexity with those tea-like tannins. Plenty of spice from the oak, fairly fresh red cherry, plum and blackberry fruit and a hint of eucalyptus on the back end and through the fairly long and spicy finish that end with some medicinal black cherry notes. Not my style, but this should prove to be very popular with the more is better crowd. 88pts

Quite dark in the glass. Big, oaky, volatile nose. Quite pleasant on the tip of the tongue--some berry, cassis fruit, but not overwhelming. As the wine moves over the palate the tannins become apparent creating the obvious puckery sensation, but also some hint of cinnamon or mint. Noticeable oak on the back of the throat..

This cab is wonderful, smooth and velvety with rich taste. I highly recommend this wine, by far one of the best cab's out there.

I am more of a white wine fan so I do not enjoy this wine by itself. However, it makes a great tasting sangria!!

A profusion of aromas - cr?me de cassis, black cherry coulis, anise, violet, black olive, fresh herb and smoke, spill out of the glass andscent the room. Profoundly deep, complex flavors echo the aroma with firm, well-integrated tannins.

Velvety flavors of blackberries, currants and spices accented by soft oak note swell to a smooth finish. Grill a steak or brew some chili and enjoy this tasty wine.

Thin and earthy, with notes of blackberries, olives and tobacco and thick, harsh acids and tannins that show up on the gritty finish. Pretty good for everyday fare at a decent price.

Pale bright yellow. Yellow peach, pineapple and a whiff of butter on the nose. Firm acidity and a hint of minerality leaven the sweetness of this wine’s peach and yellow plum flavors. Head winemaker Genevieve Janssens describes the 2009s as “fresh wines with very good acidity, from a cool summer.”

There's some nice, plush blackberry and cherry fruit in this dry wine. It will match well with foods that spar with its crisp acids and edge of tannins.

This Cabernet Sauvignon is flowing with black fruit flavors and currants, finishing with spicy oak from barrel aging. The fruit-forward style makes it easily approachable at the right price.

Helles Grün-Gelb. Gelber Apfel, Quitte und Doldenblüten in der verführerischen Nase, dahinter Babyananas, Blütenhonig und Williamsbirne, unterlegt mit duftigen Holunderblüten und feiner Vanillenote. Eleganter Gaumen mit unverkennbarer Chardonnay-Fülle und wiederum viel gelber Frucht, gute Balance und zartcremiger Fluss bis ins fruchtbetonte Finale.
