“Red wine doesn't get much smoother—and values in Pinot Noir don't get much better—than this. The wine has attractive red- and black-cherry aromas, a sense of richness on the palate and a silky mouthfeel that's hard to resist. Subtlety and restraint keep this wine from tiring the taste buds. Best Buy!” ($12)

"..... very complex but also very well integrated....."
"The 2016 rendition is very complex but also very well integrated, with complexity in the fruit profile that includes layers of citrus, melon and even tropical notes. There's plenty of energetic acidity, of course, but it is beautifully interwoven with the ripe fruit. If you've never tried this wine, or haven't been back to it for a while, don't miss this vintage.”

"..... It's a knockout at this price....."
“The aromas in this wine pop, with notes of dried herb, plum, vanilla and smoked meat. It brings a compelling sense of texture, coating the palate from end to end with exquisitely balanced fruit and savory flavors. It's a knockout at this price. Best Buy!” ($12)

"..... silky tannins and a long, stylish finish....."
"When Carmenere is bad, it’s very, very bad. But when it’s good, like Tamaya it can be an extremely pleasing wine. This wine has a perfume of spice and smoky oak. This leads to a silky textured wine with remarkable richness, concentration, and depth. Dark in profile, but this is still a very pure wine, with silky tannins and a long, stylish finish. Shows how lovely this grape can be when full ripeness is achieved."

"..... silky tannins and a savory finish....."
“Aromas of tea, berry and spice follow through to a medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a savory finish. Old vine selection. Finesse. Drink now.”

“A delightful blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon that cries out for a rich meaty pasta preparation. Racy acidity brings out a mix of black and red fruit, and oak spice complements without being intrusive. This was our pairing champ at the 2016 Monterey International Wine Competition, where it played perfectly alongside fresh cauliflower roasted with olive oil and savory Italian herbs and spices. Of course meat or fish will be elevated by this wine as well. Viva Toscana!” ($23)
