The 2008 Dynamite Cabernet Sauvignon is a fairly dry, medium-to-full bodied red wine that is high in tannins. The acidity is decent enough but the dryness and strong tannins cause it to really need to be tempered by food - it's not really a wine for sipping on its own. If it weren't for the harshness of the tannins, this Dynamite Cabernet Sauvignon would probably be a much better wine that would pair well with a wider variety of foods.
The flavors of the 2007 Nederburg Pinotage consist mainly of aromatic red fruit. It's a dry, full bodied red wine with strong tannins and marked acidity. The aromas of this Pinotage are moderate and consist mainly of smoke, vanilla, and red fruit. It's not a sweet smokey smell, more a smoke you get when cooking meat.
The Menage a Trois Red has very fruity, almost jammy flavors dominated by red berries, blackberries, and just a bit of plum. It's has a creamy or velvety texture that helps make it very smooth and enjoyable to drink. It's quite approachable as a drier red wine that is easy to drink either alone or with food. My wife praises it by saying that it's a wine that's 'worth the calories' to drink during the evening. The acidity is relatively soft, medium dry, is full bodied, and has dry tannins. It will probably taste better to most people if you give it a chance to breathe for a bit before drinking.
The Red Truck California Red is a fairly dry, full-bodied red wine that has both marked acidity and medium tannins. The flavors up front are dominated by the same berries that appear in the nose then finishes dry with a bit of pepper. There is also a bit of smoke in there plus something akin to Worcestershire sauce. This Red Truck California Red works unusually well cold for such a dry wine which will probably make it appealing during warm weather and outdoor cooking.
Cline Cellars' California Zinfandel is a dry red wine that tastes about like what you might expect from a Zinfadel. Many, though, regard this Zinfadel as much too fruity - it's common to see it described as even being jammy because of the strong fruit flavors. If you're looking for a fruity Zinfadel, this will work well. On the down side, there is a strong medicinal tastes that appears up front which can be unpleasant.
