Got this wine in Fresh Market in Gainesville, FL. Was in the "90+ wines for under $20" rack. Price, $14.99. The wine was good, but I have to admit I was expecting a lot more. It had some good oaky notes (which I like) but had a flat finish. Good with food, but maybe not so good on its own.

Waterbrook’s red wines are still a work in progress but the 2008 Melange Noir can be recommended. It is a four variety blend with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon in the lead. It is a round, savory, easy-to-understand red that will pair well with burgers and pizza over the next 2–3 years.

Generous, supple and appealing for its savory-accented cherry flavors, lingering effectively against a mild burr of tannins. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Malbec, Sangiovese, Tempranillo, Petit Verdot, Counoise, Grenache, Mourvandegrave;dre, Cinsault, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Petite Sirah and Carignane. Drink now through 2015.

Not as forward and lush as the appealing 2005, this all-purpose red, tasted a few months prior to its official release, is still knitting the components together. What is in place is plenty of tart, ripe raspberry fruit, precise and clean, and a soft backdrop of lightly chocolaty tannins.

Crisp in texture and beautifully focused to show its rose petal-accented blackberry and cherry flavors, finishing firm and persistent. Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and others. Best from 2009 through 2013.

Young, fragrant, and loaded with milk chocolate and spicy berry. Tight, tannic, with grip and tang; pleasingly moderate, listed under 14% alcohol. Although this has no Grenache in it, it has that sort of tart berry quality, with stiffer tannins.

Lithe and distinctive, with a harmonious range of blackberry, raspberry, cherry and spice mingling effortlessly on the light, refined finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc and Tempranillo.

This bright blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon, sangiovese and cabernet franc has a caramel scent to go along with its dark cassis flavors. Balanced, clean, fruity and bright, it's got the dusty sangiovese tannins for braised beef.
