                  My Review: A beautiful, rich dark wine with aromas of blackberry, mint, smoke, and a touch of mocha. The taste follows in the rich style with blackberry and black cherry, nice acidity and velvety tannins. A great value, and fantastic for sipping, with pizza, or with a nice rare steak. Score: 91/100

                          My Review: Leather, herbs, cedar, and dried cherry aromas make this an excellent wine for those who feel the fruit is frequently over-done. The taste is nice and dry, again with dried cherries and plums. There a little tannin and a long herb and spice finish. An exceptional wine for the price. Score: 90/100

                          $19.95

                            My Review: A bold, full bodied wine with lots of complexity. Aromas of smoky oak, vanilla, cocoa, black cherry, blackberry, and black pepper. The taste follows the aroma quite nicely and adds a touch of sour cherry and some silky tannins. A solid, tasty, complex wine that would pair well with rare steak. Score: 91/100

                              My Review: Up front aromas on black and white pepper, cherry, and herbs. Quite old-world in nature. The palate presents a bit more fruit, and a nice, silky mouth-feel. An exceptional wine for the price. Score: 90/100

                                My Review: An exceptionally well balanced wine with well defined fruit and barrel aromas of tart and black cherry, white pepper, vanillla, herbs and 'barnyard'. The mouth-feel is very rich for a pinot noir and is mainly dark cherry and cranberry. A fantastic blend of old-word aromas and new-world flavours. Score: 92/100
