Surprisingly good. This is a very affordable, crisp, light Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon blend. It feels like you are at a beach house. I wanted the bottle to last and last. I love blends of these two grapes. (South Africa)

Kris Pinot Grigio

A great quality, versatile white. Light with aromas of citrus and apricot.(California)

J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Smooth but bold. A beautiful color. I cherish each drop of this wine. Open this bottle first if there are different reds around the table. (California)

Pale yellow in color with aromas of peaches, pink grapefruit and pineapple. Green apples, lemon, passion fruit and minerals. Light-bodied with a crisp, refreshing taste and a short, clean finish. 79% Pinot Grigio, 21% Chardonnay. (California)

Robert Mondavi Private Selection Cabernet Sauvignon Central Coast 2013

So smooth. Almost a little too smooth at first. Then it opened up with hints of plums and blackberry. Highly enjoyable. (California)

Jason Stephens Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Dried cherry and berries aroma and almost a hint of chocolate. Medium bodied, not too fruity or dry. Great character. (California)

Rodney Strong Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 2012

My new favorite red. Smooth and silky and slightly aged in oak barrels. (California)
