93 • Alba NV Apple Wine $7.99/500 ml.
Golden yellow color. Fresh, sweet spicy apple sauce and honey aromas follow through on a round, satiny entry to a fruity sweet medium-full body with great dimension, purity and depth. Finishes with excellent balance and smoothness. A fine choice for artisan cheese or pies or cocktails. (tasted on Sep-14-2009)
90 • Black Box 2007 Shiraz, Central Coast $24.99/3L Cask.
Deep, inky ruby-purple hue. Attractive, brooding black fruit aromas carry an integrated oak accent. A lush entry leads a supple, full-bodied palate with chewy tannins and solid intensity. Finishes with a kiss of vanilla oak. Great value. Drink now. (tasted on Aug-15-2009)
90 • Chocovine NV Chocolate Wine $12.|Find-a-Wine|
Look like Irish cream liqueurs. Minty milk chocolate nose. A rich entry leads a lush, velvety, full-bodied palate. Creamy, sweet, flavorful finish. A chocolate and red wine blend that winds up like a thicker version of Baileys. An interesting cordial-like product. (tasted on Aug-15-2009)
