2007 St. Nikolaus Hospital Cardinal Cusanus Stiftswein Bernkastler Badstube Riesling Hochgewächs (out of stock)  
Review Date: 4-14-2011

Very sweet without much acidity or minerals to balance it out.

2005 Odoardi "Savuto" (out of stock)  
Review Date: 1-29-2011
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
An odd-tasting and rather unpleasant wine, with no noticeable fruit to speak of, just overpowering flavors of musty wood, caraway seed, and kerosene.

Light, fizzy, moderately sweet and redolent of apricots. Simply delicious.

2008 Ermacora Pinot Bianco (out of stock)

Dry, fruity, and aromatic. Reminds me of Muscadet. A very nice value at $9.99.

2007 E. Guigal Côtes du Rhône (out of stock)  
Review Date: 1-24-2011
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
This is a decent but ordinary Cotes du Rhone -- a reasonable value at this price, with characteristic pepper and leather or tobacco. There's not a lot there in terms of fruit or floral notes. I can't imagine why Robert Parker and Stephen Tanzer would give this rave reviews.

2010 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Villages Nouveau (out of stock)  
Review Date: 1-21-2011
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
Pleasant to begin with, but after the bottle has been open overnight it developed a strong, unpleasant aroma and taste of banana. This wine is fading; drink it now or don't drink it at all.
Drink from 2010 to 2010

2009 Domaine les Grands Bois "Cuvee les Trois Soeurs" Cotes du Rhone (out of stock)  
Review Date: 1-17-2011
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
This is a bitter wine with predominant notes of tar, leather, and earth. It might mellow with age, but right now it's difficult to drink, and I don't feel that way about too many Cotes du Rhones.
Drink from 2012 to 2013

2008 Tabali Pinot Noir Reserva Limari Valley (out of stock)  
Review Date: 1-14-2011
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
A well-balanced pinot with intense fruit of tart cherry and floral notes that might be rose petal but also could be the orange peel that K&L noted. At $12 it's a very reasonable value. Yesterday I tried a glass and stored the corked bottle overnight in the fridge, and today the flavors had come together in a tasty harmony. This will benefit from a light chilling and an hour or two to breathe.

2008 JC Cellars "Smoke & Mirrors" Red Blend (out of stock)  
Review Date: 1-14-2011
According to the JC Cellars website, 558 cases of this wine were produced, not 158 cases.

2003 Fromm "La Strada" Pinot Noir Marlborough New Zealand (out of stock)  
Review Date: 1-9-2011
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
A pleasing, somewhat dry, well-balanced pinot that is holding up fairly well despite its age. This is a good value for drinking now; in another year it will have faded.
Drink from 2010 to 2010

2006 Penfolds Limited Release "Koonunga Hill Seventy-Six" Shiraz-Cabernet South Australia (out of stock)  
Review Date: 1-2-2011

Bland, simple, and sweet. The best thing about the Penfolds Limited Release Koonunga Hill is the gorgeous label. I enjoyed it more the second day.
Drink from 2011 to 2012

2007 Domaine des Nugues Fleurie "Le Vieux Benitier", Giles Gelin (out of stock)  
Review Date: 12-17-2010

Not bad for $12, but nothing special. It's so delicate that it is hard to detect much fruit or other flavors of note.

2006 Poitevin, Médoc (out of stock)  
Review Date: 12-8-2010

The description by K&L is right on: the 2006 Poitevin is fresh, fruity, well-balanced, and highly drinkable. A nice value for Bordeaux in this price range.

2008 Jakob Schneider Riesling Kabinett 1L (out of stock)

Simply sweet, like lemon-lime koolaid. I like German Rieslings (is there any other kind?), but this one is disappointing.

2004 Calzadilla "Opta" (out of stock)

If McDonald's decided to sell wine, and they gave it an eggnog flavor, it might taste rather like the 2004 Calzadilla Opta.
