The 2011 Château Des Charmes Chardonnay Barrel Fermented was first barrel fermented and then aged in French Oak for 9 months. It has intense aromas of citrus, candied fruit – papaya/pineapple, light vanilla and underbrush. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry/dry, fruity to integrated wine, with checked acidity, soft tannin and a medium, woody finish. Drink with most foods, especially seafood in white wine/garlic/onion sauce, or sip on its own; drink now-2016+. Drank remainder after 3 days in the fridge and the wine became more aromatic with Tutti frutti (candied fruit mentioned above) notes showing through. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 89 pts – recommended for quality and price (can’t go wrong for $13.95). Tasted September/13.

TEMPRANILLO
Usually this wine outperforms and the review below should not discourage one from purchasing a different vintage. The 2009 Castillo De Almansa Reserva is made of undisclosed proportions of Tempranillo, Monastrell and Garnacha that was aged in oak for 12 months. It has raspberry yogurt, toasted oak and vanilla notes. It is an extra-dry, medium bodied, fruity wine; although having a medium to long finish; it is quite unbalanced with tart acidity and noticeable tannins. Aging would help this wine, if it weren’t for the screw cap enclosure lessening its aging potential (first vintage in screw cap). Pair this wine with salty and meaty dishes. My impression: NOTHING SPECIAL, 85 pts – usually this wine outperforms others in its price bracket. Tasted April/13 at WineAlign Cru tasting.

TRADITIONAL
The 2011 Banfi Toscana Centine Rosso that is composed of 60% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot, has appealing notes of yeasty blackberry and black cherry on the nose and red currant and cherry on the palate. It is a medium bodied, dry, fruity wine; with good acidity, subtle to refined tannins (decant for 15 min) and a medium finish. Drink with food; drink now – 2016. My impression: NICE, 88 pts. Tasted at ‘Taste Italy 2013’ http://grapeselections.com/taste-italy-2013/ in Nov/13.

This review is for a predecessor: The 2010 Louis Jadot Chardonnay Bourgogne is a medium bodied, fruity wine with appealing aromas of ripening apple and subtle oak. It has a nice acidity and a slightly sweet finish of medium length. Drink this food friendly wine for the next 2-4 years. My impression: NICE, 88 pts. Tasted Sept/12.

The 2011 Wente Morning Fog Chardonnay, of which 50% was aged in French, American, and Eastern European oak for 7 months, was imparted with intense and captivating aromas of sweet vanilla, creamy butter, pear, gooseberry and subtle oak. It is an off-dry, medium bodied, fruity to integrated wine, with good acidity, subtle tannins and a long and smooth finish. Due to its intense fruit and good acidity, this wine is food friendly, yet can be enjoyed by itself; drink while young before the fruit integrates or age for the next 10+ years (cork enclosure). My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 90-91 pts – recommended for its quality and excellent value. STOCK UP!! Tasted at Churchill Cellars Portfolio tasting May/13.

The 2010 Ghost Pine Chardonnay, sourced from Sonoma, Monterey and Napa Counties and aged in both French and American oak after fermentation, has intense aromas of ripe pear, citrus, butter and subtle oak. It is medium bodied with good fruit intensity, has a good structure and a long and smooth finish. Pair with salty meat dishes, but rather enjoy sipping it by itself; drink now to 2017. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 90 pts – recommended, especially for this price. Tasted March/13.

The 181 Merlot 2010, sourced from the Lodi Valley and made in Bordeaux style, has intense aromas of toasted oak, black cherry liqueur, blackberry faint pine needle notes. It is medium bodied, fruity, has good acidity, refined tannins (decant for 15 min) and a medium, silky finish. It can be drunk by itself or with food; good to drink now, but will be in its prime from 2015-2020. My opinion: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 89-90 pts – recommended due to its value. Tasted March/13.

TEMPRANILLO
The 2009 Castillo De Almansa Reserva is made of undisclosed proportions of Tempranillo, Monastrell and Garnacha that was aged in oak for 12 months. It has raspberry yogurt, toasted oak and vanilla notes. It is an extra-dry, medium bodied, fruity wine; although having a medium to long finish; it is quite unbalanced with tart acidity and noticeable tannins. Aging would help this wine, if it weren’t for the screw cap enclosure lessening its aging potential (first vintage in screw cap). Pair this wine with salty and meaty dishes. My impression: NOTHING SPECIAL, 85 pts – usually this wine outperforms others in its price bracket, just not this vintage. Tasted April/13 at WineAlign Cru tasting.

The 2008 Hoya De Cadenas Reserva, composed mainly of Tempranillo that was aged in American oak for 12 months, has intense aromas of black cherry, blueberry, oak and cedar on the nose and strawberry and black cherry on the palate. It is an extra-dry, medium bodied, fruity to integrated wine; has good acidity, refined tannins and a medium to long finish. It is food friendly and can be enjoyed as a sipper; drink now and for the next 5 years. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 88 pts – recommended buy, especially now that it is on LCBO’s ‘limited time offer’ until April 28/13. Tasted April/13 at WineAlign Cru tasting.

The 2007 Tedeschi Amarone Della Valpolicella is composed of 30% Corvina, 30% Corvinone, 30% Rondinella and 10% of combined Rossignola, Oseleta, Negrara, Dindarella; picked from 20+ year old vines and aged in Slavonian oak barrels for 2-3 years before being bottled. It is a full bodied, integrated wine, with intense aromas of black currant, blackberry, mushrooms and faint oak and vanilla at opening, while longer opening reveals notes of red currant, cranberry and slight greenness. It has an intense fruit, good structure with refined tannins (decant for 30+ min) and checked acidity; the finish is long and silky. Very food friendly, but I recommend sipping it by itself for full appreciation; tuck few bottles away and drink them now-2020, as this wine has evolution potential. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 91+ pts – recommended buy well worth the price, nice treat from the LCBO Essentials. Tasted Jan/13.

The 2012 Stoneleigh Sauvignon Blanc has intense bouquet of leechie and passion fruit on the nose as well as on the palate. It is a light to medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity wine, with good acidity and long, leechie dominated finish. It is a food friendly wine – pair with Asian cuisine; drink young now – 2015/16 (screw cap). My impression: NICE, 89-90 pts – recommended buy especially when on sale for $15.95 ($1.50 OFF) till May 26/13. Tasted at WineAlign’s event “Tutored Tasting with Stoneleigh Winemaker Jamie Marfell” and again at Wines of New Zealand May/13.

It is full bodied, fruity, on the acidic side, with subtle to refined tannins (decant for 30-60 min) and a medium to long and smooth finish. Drink with heavy foods; drink now or cellar for 5+ more years. My impression: NICE, 89 pts. Tasted March/13.

The 2007 Montecillo Reserva is a light to medium bodied, integrated wine, with intense aromas of sour cherry, creamy oak, coconut and vanilla. It has subtle to refined tannins (decant for 15 min), good acidity and a long and smooth finish. It is food friendly or can be sipped by itself; drink now – 2016. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 89 pts – well priced when on sale; recommended buy. Tasted Jan/13.
.
The 2006 Montecillo Reserva from the general section is medium bodied, with nice aromas of integrated raspberry, coconut, oak and black pepper and vanilla spices. Tannins are refined (decant for 15 to 30 min) and the finish is long and smooth and silky. It is at its prime and should retain its complexity for another 5 years. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 90 pts – a well crafted wine that I would highly recommend. Tasted Jan/11 and again Dec/11.

I tried the 2005 Vintage and here is my review:
The 2005 Castelgiocondo Brunello Di Montalcino, which has been aged in oak for 36 months, is light bodied with intense aromas of integrated red berries, cedar and vanilla. It is somewhat disjoint as the tannins (tannic – decant for half to full hour), the intense aromas, the light body and the short to medium finish do not reinforce each other. I would not age this wine as it will only loose complexity. My impression: NOTHING SPECIAL to NICE, 88.5 – not a recommended buy. Tasted Nov/10.

It has an intense fruit, good structure with refined tannins (decant for 30+ min) and checked acidity; the finish is long and silky. Very food friendly, but I recommend sipping it by itself for full appreciation; tuck few bottles away and drink them now-2020, as this wine has evolution potential.

The 2008 Viña Zaco Tempranillo, aged in oak, is a pleasant entry level Rioja. It is a medium bodied, fruity wine, with appealing aromas of oak, raspberry, cherry and coconut and vanilla on the finish. It has a good structure, refined tannins (decant for 15 min) and a medium to long finish. It has a great cellaring potential, as it will increase its complexity in time, drink now to 2018.

I tried the 2006 as well as 2005, never disappoints: The 2006 Marqués De Riscal Reserva, same as the 2005 vintage, is composed of Tempranillo, Graciano and Mazuelo (Cariñena) and was aged in American oak for 26 months. It is a light to medium bodied, integrated wine, with on-the-lighter-side appealing notes of red currant, cedar and vanilla. It has a nice food friendly acidity, tannins that are still grippy (decant for 1+ hour) and a medium to long finish. It seems to be closed off even after an hour of decanting, suggesting that perhaps aging for couple of years may open it up – drink 2013 to 2018. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 89 pts.

I tried the 2008 with the following review: The 2008 Clos De Los Siete was originally released on April 31st, 2011 and then re-released on December 10th, 2011. It quickly disappeared on the first release (I purchased one bottle – one I review here). This wine is medium to full bodied, fruity to INTEGRATED, with nice notes of overripe cherry/black cherry on the nose and blueberry and subtle oak on the palate. It has a nice structure with refined tannins (decant for 30 min) and a medium, silky finish. Drink it now only to get an impression of how it will evolve in the next 4-5 years after which it should drink nicely for another 5 or more years. My impression: NICE (not there yet), 89.5 pts – I would recommend purchasing a couple of bottles only to see how they evolve in the next 5+ years. Tasted Jan/12.
