    Pleasant wine - goes well with spicy Italian sausage and pasta - or by itself. Not very complex - little to no tannins.

    My husband doubted joining this club as he usually only spends a maximum of $10 per bottle, but this wine made him realize that there are great wines out there that we are not tasting because of his price "guidline". Thanks

    Why are all the reds Cabernet or Merlot. Could you please send Sangiovesse, Shiraz, Syrah, or some good reds.

    An almost drinkable wine. Weak start and finish for a Cabernet. No heartiness whatsover. This wine would barely pass for a Merlot.

    Almost no tannins, medium dry. Light on the nose with balanced finish; brings out light currant, plum, and black olive tones. My favorite in 4 months.
