"..... this is a ridiculously good wine for the money....."
"The Sicilia Rosso is Colosi’s entry-level Nero d’Avola. This is a delicious, full-bodied wine with a generous core of fruit, and an engaging, compelling personality.

This wine is almost too good for the money. However this is a ridiculously good wine for the money."

“Nearly opaque violet color. Fruity, floral aromas and flavors of strawberry cranberry tart, vanilla toffee, and lilacs with a silky, bright, fruity body and a smooth, engaging, medium-length pickled cassis and melon, spiced apple, and cocoa nuts finish with well-integrated, fine tannins and light oak. A silky, precisely balanced cabernet with pure berry fruit and restrained oak. Best Buy!”

“The 2015 Malbec is very floral and bright mixing grapes from different zones in Mendoza, showcasing the grape in the province. The palate is very elegant, soft, with a fresh note that they tell me might come from some 5% Merlot from Tupungato that is used in the blend. Super!”

“Beautiful aromas of creamy apple, white flower and ripe pear carry over to the bright delicious palate along with a hint of lemon zest. Crisp acidity lifts the lingering finish. Best Buy!”

"..... Yum!....."

”Drouhin’s elegant and lacey style is a perfect fit for the ripe red wines of 2015. The reds from Santenay, a low-keyed village at the southern end of the Côte de Beaune bordering Chassagne-Montrachet, can have a rustic edge to them. Taming this rusticity -- making it charming -- without eviscerating the signature of the village’s wine is a difficult line to walk, one that Drouhin does marvelously with its 2015 Santenay. Glossy, but not too elegant, the rustic charm of Santenay is apparent and appealing. Very long, especially for a village wine, this mid-weight wine is a beauty to drink now, with a roast chicken and sautéed mushrooms. Yum!”
