The 2009 Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon offers inviting aromas of black cherry cola, red cherry, vanilla bean and cocoa powder along with a touch of clove and sage. These notes carry over onto the palate and combine with flavors of milk chocolate, toasty oak and hint of wintergreen. The wine has a smooth texture with great depth and fine-grained tannins. The vibrant fruit, great structure and balanced acidity make this wine pair extremely well with hardy dishes such as braised short ribs or filet mignon with a Cabernet and wild mushroom demi-glace.

Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot
alcohol by volume: 14.5%

Canoli 2009 Pinot Grigio

I got this, because I fall for marketing every once n awhile, and I’ve seen this brand around. So I had to try it to post, and I chilled it over night, and just started drinking it, and it’s very watering… more or less a bad chardonnay almost. I would not recommend it, it’s very disgusting.

Straw-yellow in color with hints of green.It has a full, fruity aroma that is very long-lasting, and a dry, mellow taste that is particularly well balanced for such a full-bodied wine.–Winemakers Note
