Perrin - Rasteau L'Andeol
moderate tannin - fairly light body. about right for price point. Limited aging potential
Casa Lapostolle - Cabernet Sauvignon Cuvee Alexandre (Apalta Vineyard Colchagua)
bleh - OK, not great.
Kosta Browne - Pinot Noir Russian River Valley
Not sure if it's just not ready or not as good as the 2011. Not smooth or integrated - no improvement after 1 day open.
Concha y Toro - Don Melchor
Extremely good. Almost as good as the Clos Apalta.
