Nice berry aroma with some other subtle notes of spice and even something vegetal. Medium body, smooth texture and flavor of tart cherries all the way to the finish. Very nice for $12.

A perfectly average Tuscan wine. A good table wine. I couldn't find any fault with it and enjoyed it but it did not exhibit significantly more character than a straw basket chianti. It's a good buy for the price.

2008 Tablas Creek Rosé (58% Mourvèdre, 32% Grenache, 10% Counoise). Reddish pink color darker than most Rosés; Well balanced, Plum, watermelon, strawberry on nose and palate; fresh, crisp lingering flavors on the finish. Really enjoying this wine, especially on hot day like today. July 19, 2009

This fruity, made-to-quaff Sangiovese has some earthy, mineral notes along with black fruit and full but non-aggressive tannins. Hints of cocoa and licorice add some complexity to what is otherwise a simple, fruity wine. In most ways itrsquo;s similar to Beaujolais.

There are plenty of raspberry aromas and flavors in this medium-bodied Italian red, along with a soft texture and a light, fruity finish. Focused and clean, it gives you the chance to dig into the wonderful quality of the lsquo;97 vintage right away, and for an affordable price. Drink now.

A berry scented Sangiovese with hints of leather (itrsquo;s a good thing) and spice from under the Tuscan sun.

Ruby red in colour; on the nose, intense bouquet of mature fruits; on the palate well structured, harmonious, soft and very pleasing.

This beauty came on the scene back in 1946 as a Chianti Classico. However, in 1984, with the DOCG laws coming into the picture and Chianti requiring a longer oak aging period, Antinori decided to keep his ldquo;Chianti,rdquo; blend it with Merlot and begin a new path. Santa Cristina is 90% Sangiovese and 10% Merlot. On the nose you will find a very intense jammy bouquet of cranberries, strawberries and plums. In the mouth the fruit is lively and fresh with great acidity, spice and balanced tannins. A great wine for drinking with friends or enjoying with a nice weekend picnic!

A soft red, boasting black cherry, blackberry and spice notes. Tails off a little on the finish. Drink now through 2014.

The wine has an intense ruby red color. It offers full and complex aromas which recall ripe fruit, plum jam, mint, chocolate, and tobacco. In the mouth, the wine presents itself with good body; it is round, with soft, velvety tannins.90 WA

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The unique blends of grapes in this wine results in silkiness and fruit purity. A brilliant, yellow-green wine with a floral, apple complexity on the nose, intensely fruity and elegant, and a harmonious, soft mouthfeel.
