Aaron:  Treveri is great and this is no exception.  This is not a sweet sparkling but it’s delicious.  The nose is a little grassy followed by an oaky flavor.  Overall, very mild and easy drinking with more granite than fruit flavors.  This tastes great.  91 points

Teri: Light nutty smell (almond and cashew) and overall not too dry and not too sweet. I tasted flavors of apricot and cherry blossoms. This one gets better as you drink it and taste additional flavors. This sparkling would pair well with spicy foods or to serve with dessert. 91 points

Aaron:  This is ok for a cheap bottle.  The nose is dirty and the flavor is earthy with some blueberries.  A little creamy vanilla yogurt blended with what I consider to be traditional old world flavors. 89 points

Teri: Mellow nose and flavors. Easy drinking wine with predominant flavors of blueberry and oak. Light and smooth but good hearty flavor. 88 points, mostly for value

Aaron:  This has an earthy nose with oak and olives.  The flavor was smooth and rich with dirty cocoa powder, cherry, and vanilla.  There was some hefty spice on the back of the throat after the full finish.  89 points

Teri: This Malbec carries a leathery raspberry and cocoa nose. On the wine, I taste significant herbs and earth: Minerals, bell pepper, and green wood. The body has medium to light tannins which smooth out well in the mouth. 88 points.

Aaron: There are a decent amount of minerals throughout this bottle.  White bark and light olives smothered cantaloupe on the nose.  The flavor is super dry and slightly tangy.  This is not fruity at all and almost bitter.  Definitely not my favorite and reminds me of sour pineapple.  85 points

Teri: Light lemon and melon nose and citrus flavors in the wine with mellow acidity. Mineral and honey add some additional complexity. It had good long flavor and is still light and crisp. Enjoyable.  90 points.

Aaron:  This is a good bottle for an affordable, red blend.  Tobacco was the prominent smell with some black fruits as an afterthought.  The flavor is pretty smooth with a great aftertaste of violets and mushroom.  Very floral with some earthy undertones.  This flavor profile isn’t usually my preference but I enjoyed it.  90 points

Teri:  This red blend has a woody plum nose and medium to large body. Very noticeable tannins that were slightly chunky but good flavors of leather, prune, oak, and some spicy black pepper on the taste. It is still easy to drink but bold. 88 points
