Pleasant wine that is especially good in warm to hot weather. It has a nice balance that doesn't fade as you drink.

2008 Water Wheel Shiraz Plus (+) Bendigo Victoria (out of stock)

Very nice blend with Shiraz as the most dominant. It needs a little time to air after opening, but it then offers a nice aroma and a medium to full flavor.

This is very appealing wine at a very appealing price. It is a wonderfully refreshing beverage for drinking or sharing on a warm and sunny day. It can be enjoyed with or without light snacks. It has a dry, crisp taste with just a hint of sweetness. Toll!

Great wine for any occasion. It should satisfy a wide variety of drinkers from those who prefer white wines to those who prefer a hearty red.

2009 Villa Pillo Syrah Toscana (out of stock)

I concur with both Greg's and Brent's comments. I found this wine to be well balanced with a rich depth of berry flavor and a wonderful finish. It stands up to many of the full bodied Shiraz that I drink from Australia and is perhaps a bit more subtle.

2009 Bodegas Olivares "Altos de la Hoya" Jumilla (out of stock)

Monastrell, Mataro or Mourvedre, call it what you like, but this is a very fine wine. Parker and Tanzer got this one right, it deserves their high rating. It is dense in color with a rich aroma and strong berry taste. It is well balanced and holds its flavor from first sip to last swallow.

2010 M. Chapoutier "Les Vignes de Bila-Haut" Côtes-du-Roussillon Villages

A great wine that is dense in color, has a pleasant aroma and presents a solid (or as Wine Spectator states "powerful) taste. This is one that will go well with a full range of foods, from light to heavy. Definitely a wine to share with others.

2009 Erik Banti "Carato" IGT (out of stock)

I am always a little suspect of a wine that has such a "modest" price. In this case, I was wonderfully surprised at the quality of this wine at the $6.99 price point. It was good at first sip and maintained its flavor thru a second tasting a day later.

2006 Bodegas y Viñedos del Jalon Claraval Seleccion Especial Calatayud (out of stock)  
Review Date: 4-26-2012
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
This was a tale of two bottles. The first must have suffered from a bad cork, had a strong musty smell and an offensive taste. It was tossed. Several days later, the second bottle was opened and this one was more like the reviews provided by Mabry, Parker & Tanzer. Although it didn't exhibit the red fruited freshness described, it did have a pleasant berry flavor and nice balance. It may not be a wine to store for long if their corks are truly at issue. A much later tasting (4/24/2012) found this to be an outstanding wine that appears to have aged wonderfully in the bottle. Of course, now it is difficult to locate, but worth pursuing.

An unusual blend with a great balance and taste. Have already drained several bottles and looking forward to more. Given its modest price and quality, this is a wonderful "house" wine and a real steal.

2010 Blason Pinot Grigio Isonzo (1L) (out of stock)

A very nice wine with depth of flavor that lingers on the tongue. It presents mild fruit aromas with just a hint of mineral and finishes with a clean, crisp taste. With the 1 liter format it can be easily shared, but why bother?

2004 Shingleback "Show Reserve" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia (out of stock)  
Review Date: 11-4-2011
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
Not like a number of the Australian Shiraz that are over powering and one dimensional in taste. This is a much more subtle wine, but one with plenty of expression, perhaps due to its time in the bottle. It is not a wine to store for long; however, it should be good to drink over the next few years.

Dark with full-bodied flavor or as Wine Spectator notes a "muscular red". Found this wine by accident while in Luxembourg in October and was pleasantly surprised to find it recently at K&L. It will stand up to any number of hearty foods and is a steal at the price.

This wine has a pleasant aroma and a solid fruit flavor that hangs in from start to finish. A wonderful wine choice, especially at its modest price.

2009 Castillo de Monseran Garnacha Cariñena (out of stock)  
Review Date: 9-21-2011

This wine (at this price) is pleasant enough for casual drinking, but is rather thin on flavor. The 2007 vintage from the same winemaker had more depth and character. It is unlikely that further aging will improve this wine. While it would pair well with a mild cheese or appetizer, it would not stand up to any hearty foods.

This wine is well balanced, has a great nose along with a very dense color. It is full bodied garnacha with beautiful fruit tones and aromas. It is one of many wonderful wines from Spain that are bargain priced and super values. I purchased only two bottles initially, but will be back for more.
