Falling Star 2004 Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon (Cuyo)

  • Best Buy
  1. $5
Fairly round and solid, with citrus, nectarine and honey aromas. Tastes a bit more like orange juice than a fine white, but the mouthfeel and acid-fruit balance is acceptable. Best with simple Asian foods and salads.  — M.S.  (7/1/2005)

Falling Star 2004 Merlot-Malbec (Cuyo)

  • Best Buy
  1. $5
For a five-spot you get syrupy but fairly deep red fruit in the cherry, raspberry and plum category. The mouthfeeel is more than acceptable, while the overriding jammy sweetness could muster mass appeal.  — M.S.  (3/1/2005)

Falling Star 2004 Chardonnay (Cuyo)

  • Best Buy
  1. $5
Smells fine, with flowers and mixed stone fruits. The palate is thin but sweet, with ripe apple and mango flavors. As might be expected from a value Chard, the finish is syrupy and a touch hot, but not offensively so.  — M.S.  (3/1/2005)

Falling Star 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon (Cuyo)

  1. $5
Artificially jammy and sweet, with medicinal cherry aromas and flavors. Fairly hard, with gritty tannins. More of an effort than it should be.  — M.S.  (7/1/2005)
