Smooth and layers of fruit. Very elegant. Great with a picnic at the Wedding Bowl in La Jolla where we got married on this day, 23 years ago.

Very solid choice from the restaurant’s half bottle list. I wish more restaurants maintained half bottles. Perfect for when traveling and eating solo at the bar.

Not too shab. Smooth, very Merlot from Napa Valley. Definitely needs a few years to lay down.

Dry complex and very Cabernet like. Dark fruits hint of spice. Pairing well with Mediterranean.

A good showing. Notes of coffee and jam on the nose and palate. Good tannins, but acidity tilts the ensemble in the wrong direction. Still enjoyable. Don’t bother to cellar this.
