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 Spanish Quarter Red is a dry, full-bodied wine with strong red fruit and chocolate flavors. It has nice acidity and medium tannins that are reminiscent of Zinfandel. It has a fairly extended finish, perhaps longer than one would normally expect from a red wine of this price.
The Chateau Ste. Michelle Orphelin is a deep, dark purple red and has a thick, velvety appearance when you swirl it in the glass. The Chateau Ste. Michelle Orphelin tastes very fruity and is very approachable for a full-bodied red wine. In fact, it's not nearly as dry as you might imagine and it's not too tannic either.
As with the aromas, the flavors of the Robert Mondavi Vinetta are primary dark berries like blackberries along with black cherries and plum. The texture is smooth and as thick as the wine looks when swirling in the glass and there is a hint of oak in the background. This full-bodied wine has an extended taste, high tannins, and is quite dry.
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.
