2011 Rombauer - Zinfandel Proprietor Selection
A wonderful, medium-bodied wine! Lovely deep garnet in the glass with an intriguing nose of ripe fruit, spice, vanilla, and tobacco. The ripe fruit gave an illusion of sweetness, but the wine was dry. The fruit, acidity, and tannins were nicely balanced. Time in the glass gave evidence to the wine's complexity! The finish was ever so smooth and long, with hints of vanilla and tobacco.

2009 Altamura - Cabernet Sauvignon
This was a beautifully integrated wine! Dark garnet in the glass with a nose of ripe, dark fruit and a hint of leather. There was this clean earthiness to the nose as well. On the palate, there was this wonderful balance of ripe fruit, acidity, and round tannins. The finish was smooth and long!

2010 Waterstone - Cabernet Sauvignon
I do not recommend this wine. The nose was disappointing, the palate mildly tannic but without flavor, and the finish non-existent. Take the $30 and buy a nice Chianti.
