Southbrook Cabernet Merlot Shiraz 2006

Date November 1, 2010 | Chuck | Canada & Red Blend & Red Wine

I think this should be the typical three grapes for a meritage. An excellent blend for the price.
The shiraz shines well in this dry, mid-full bodied vintage.

Voga Quattro 2006

Date May 3, 2009 | Chuck | Italy & Red Blend & Red Wine

At first glance this bottle looks like something shampoo would come it, but once on the table with the cap off, it feels kind of futuristic. Overall this is a pretty good wine, a little bit more than the lower end reds but it's worth the extra 3.50. Overall it's a dry, medium bodied wine with soft acidity and ripe tannins.
4-Way Blend (quatto means four in Italian): Merlot, Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Cabernet.  Surprisingly, the pinot really does shine through.

Fontal Tempranillo Crianza 2004

Date July 4, 2008 | Chuck | Red Wine & Spain & Tempranillo

With a medium-full mouthfeel, this tempranillo is wide and juicy. Finishing off with sweet tannins and a fruity yet earthy finish.
Interesting note: Due to the region's (La Mancha) dry climate, the rows of vines are planted far apart so the roots don't compete for what little moisture there is in the soil between rainfalls.
