Fortified wine; very dark garnet almost inky color with aromas of cherry liquer, sweet tobacco,spice and floral notes. On the palate red fruit, and spice with good acidity and a touch of fine grained tannins. Medium long finish. It was fantastic with dark chocolate!

2000 Lopez de Heredia "Viña Tondonia" Gran Reserva Rosado Rioja (out of stock)  
Review Date: 8-7-2011
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
Coppery onion skin color. Great aromatics that jump out the glass with aromas of faint oxidation, butterscotch, almond, and spice. On the palate silky smooth, fresh, complex and balanced. Very dry with tart red berry, blood orange, and hint of vanillin flavors. Long finish. This is definitely a food wine. Will buy more!

Very light straw color with tiny bubbles, and green apple, sweet chalk, faint ocean breeze, or mineral aromas. On the palate a creamy, delicate mousse, yet approaching medium-bodied mouthfeel with flavors of green apple, lime and a bit of orange peel on the back end. Medium long finish. Excellent QPR on this one! My favorite Cava so far!

Gruet Rosé New Mexico Sparkling Wine  
Review Date: 8-6-2011
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
Copper-tinged pink color with somewhat creamy mousse containing large bubbles. In the glass, small dispersed bubbles with strawberry, raspberry and yeast aromas. Went flat relatively quickly which took away from my enjoyment a bit. On the palate, fruity approaching off-dry with strawberry/raspberry, mineral flavors with a touch of tangerine on the back palate. Short finish. This is a very good value!

Lovely pale salmon color with persistent stream of tiny bubbles. On the nose floral, stone fruit (peaches/apricots), with a faint scone note. On the palate I tasted watermelon, red berry flavors, and a bit of hazelnut. Creamy mousse. Light to medium bodied. Dry with a light fruitiness, good acidity, and a clean medium long finish.

Very pale salmon color with copper hue, and a fine bead with fresh baked bread, strawberry, and red currant with slight floral and spice notes. Refined mouth feel with a soft creamy mousse. Nicely balanced with some complexity, and Raspberry, red currant, and soft minerals flavors. Medium finish. Very enjoyable! I would purchase again and this is a very good value, especially for a Rose sparkler!

Brilliant pale gold, with a persistent bead of tiny bubbles surrounded by a constellation of pinpoint bubbles. Aromas of Fuji apple, brioche, and a bit of licorice. Soft creamy mousse. Medium-bodied, fruity yet complex. Balanced with nice acidity. On the palate, tart apple and peach at first followed by sweetened lemon zest, and spice on the back end. Medium long finish. Wonderful Champagne. Good value for Champagne.

Dark ruby color. Nose offers leather, cherries, herbs and oak. On the palate I get tart cherries, cassis, smoke, and vanilla. Smooth, medium bodied with well integrated tannins, racy acidity, and a lingering finish. A steal at $7!

100% Montepulciano.Dark ruby color. A little funk on the nose initially, but opened up a bit to reveal a little dark red fruit. On the palate, more fruity than nose lead on with dark cherry fruit. Light bodied, straightforward, and enjoyable. Good everyday red. Short finish. http://enofylz.wordpress.com

2009 Maritma Sangiovese "The 4 Old Guys" (out of stock)

Juicy is the first word that comes to mind with this easy drinker. Garnet colored. Nose opened up a bit after 10 minutes or so (and the alcohol dissipated), and offered wood, earth, and a bit of red fruit. While not terribly fruity on the nose, on the palate there's a juicy red cherries/plum thing going on that dominates, with moderate Sangio acidity. Not complex, but who expect that for $8/bottle? Very good every day Sangio. Enjoyed with lasagne.

My first non-Beaujolais Nouveau Beaujolais, and what a wonderful one it is. It's Cru Beaujolais for me from now on! Deep magenta hue with berry fruit, some floral notes and spice on the nose. I was also intrigued by a grilled game/meaty bouquet on the nose upon opening. Went away after 10 or so minutes, but it was wonderful while it lasted! On the palate, it was silky,and round with wonderful acidity. Taste wise it was black raspberries for me with spice and a touch of stoniness on the back end. Long finish. Wish I had more!
