Medium bodied red wine. The nose hints of black currant, plum, earthiness, and maybe a bit of leather? A bit sharp on the palette, with dark fruit flavor, and a bit of beef jerky flavor. A decent wine, but not a favorite.
Floral and lightly sweet with white grape aromas. Nice and fresh on the palate, lemon and good medium acidity. Great value!
I have commented on this wine in the past. I still think it is an awesome bargain (US$3.49 at Total Wines and at Cost Plus World Marketplace). An uncomplicated, refreshing wine that still stands up to a hearty meal. We had it with pizza, last night.
Nose is a bit closed, like a pinot gris, light and grassy. Apricot and pear round it out. The mouth is also mild, slightly buttery, and generally pleasant.
Fruity and fresh on the nose. Medium acidity, striking peach notes. Pears and a little pineapple on the finish
Very rich, sweet nose, lots of fruity flavor: lemon, peach, pineapple. Perfect for a white sangria on a hot day.
versatile light inexpensive white...good for sipping or with white fish.

Light and refreshing as a sea breeze, this crisp, limey Spanish white is a steal at $6.
Bright ruby red. Moderately light-bodied. Moderately extracted, Mildly tannic. Black fruit flavors follow through on the palate...
Brisk and tangy with lovely ripe tropical fruit and juicy acidity; exudes charm; 40% Xarello, 30% Macabeo, 30% Parellada.
Aromas of grapefruit and slate are clean. the palate runs zesty to the point of being spritzy, with pink grapefruit and apricot flavors. Tangy and juicy, and totally uncomplicated. A picnic wine in every sense.

This chewy red shows red fruit, earth and spice notes, with a rustic edge to the firm tannins. The finish is fresh and spicy. Drink now through 2008.
Despite an opening that features some vinegary sharpness and mulch, therersquo;s also decent berry fruit notes and milk chocolate sweetness to the nose. Feels about as yoursquo;d expect, which means itrsquo;s zesty and lean, with cherry, plum and herbal flavors. Juicy and minty on the finish.
