This Around the World Bargain Case Sampler contains 2 bottles each of:
2010 Bodegas Faustino Rioja VI - Jon Visser, Wine Buyer 3½ Stars
Nice ripe cherries, some dried berries, tobacco, spice, and a little vanilla. Medium-bodied Rioja with good structure and red fruits lingering on the finish. A great everyday red!
2011 Casa Julia Sauvignon Blanc – Jon Visser, Wine Buyer 3½ Stars
Clean and crisp Sauvignon Blanc with nice gooseberry fruit, lemon-lime, with a silky finish.
2010 Ca’ di Ponti Sangiovese – Jon Visser, Wine Buyer 3½ Stars
Jam packed with red and black fruits. Plenty of dark cherries, raspberries, and spice. The balance and structure to this wine makes it seem like it should be more expensive. It drinks a lot better than its price tag.
2010 Pleasures Pinot Noir – Jon Visser, Wine Buyer 3½ Stars
Round and fruity with ripe cherries, raspberries, strawberries, subtle oak flavor, and a nice soft finish. A nice value Pinot Noir with great depth of flavors. Bottled with cork and the alcohol level is 13.5%.
2009 Hess Select Chardonnay
Tropical aromas of freshly-cut pineapple and ripe pear. A soft entry of well-balanced fruit and oak persists all the way to a pleasing finish of honeydew melon and crème brûlée."-Winemaker's Notes
2009 Cuvee de Pena – Wine Advocate 90 Points
The as usual Carignan-based red 2009 Cuvee de Pena is simply the finest of its illustrious bargain-priced breed that I have tasted (and I go back 20 years with this cuvee and its predecessor), which also makes it a mind-boggling value! Clean and polished, concentrated but unexaggerated, this delivers sweet fruit with soil and soul. Ripe cherry, black raspberry, and purple plum are shadowed by their distilled counterparts in a high-toned nose and practically gush on the palate. Pungent, resinous herbs, smoky black tea, toasted pecan, brown spices, and crushed stone all serve for aromatic and gustatory interest, leading to a brightly juicy yet deeply rich finish. Buy it by the case, or buy it by the bag-in-box; delight and - if you dare reveal its price - amaze your guests over at least the next couple of years, though quite possibly longer. (And we wine snobs need to stick this into some blind tastings to put quality-price rapport into perspective, and perhaps some prejudices to rest.)-DS
