Biltmore Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Alexander Valley Juice, United States

Jeannine reviewed this wine:

This rich Cabernet Sauvignon has an oaky nose with hints of black currant, plum and vanilla that complements its fruit-forward flavors with very soft tannins and light acidity. Pairs well with grilled steak and summer smoky grilling.

This complex flavorful wine has an elegant and delicate mouth-feel. Flavors of strawberry, raspberry, vanilla and integrated oak aromas with corresponding fruit flavors. This lighter Pinot pairs well with roasted pork tenderloin, grilled salmon or tuna

Buttery, full-bodied with toast oak flavor. Lightly citrus with creamy tropical fruit. Pairs well with shellfish, seafood and sharp cheese - like asiago and parmesan

Jeannine scored this wine: 89/100

Translated as "Dance for Two" - this is a lively and lightly sweet sparkling wine crafted from aromatic Muscat Canelli grapes. Slightly tart with toasty oak flavors. Pair with light appetizer of grilled shrimp, fresh fruit or cheese

Cantina di Casteggio Sangue di Giuda 2010

Otrepo Pavese Doc, Lombardy, Italy
2445 days ago

Jeannine scored this wine: 85/100

This is a brilliant light red slightly sparkling wine with an aromatic nose of fresh, ripe cherry with hints of blackberry and delicious savory notes. The juicy flavors of ripe cherry and blackberry has medium sweetness and is balanced with light tannins that pairs well with desserts - like a rich chocolate fudge cake.
