Wine Enthusiast; Jim Gordon; 3/1/2017:

Great American Wine Company 2013 Chardonnay (California); 90 Points Editors’ Choice.1
“In this wine, a core of juicy apple and Anjour pear flavors is dressed with light vanilla, nutmeg and cream accents for a beautiful, airy wine that's dry and not at all heavy. Baking spices linger on the long, vibrant finish.”

Great American Wine Company 2014 Sauvignon Blanc (California); 89 Points Editors’ Choice.2
“This interesting and rather subtle wine smells like white pepper and pistachios and tastes like white peaches. It stays dry on the palate, while the texture spreads flavors smoothly for a sense of richness.”

Great American Wine Company 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon (California); 88 Points.3
“This wine draws a lot of its flavor power from oak, which is evident from the spicy, cinnamon aroma to the lightly sweet maple flavor and finish. Not too full bodied, it is also light in tannins and rather easy on the palate.”

Great American Wine Company 2013 Zinfandel (California); 87 Points.4
“Blackberry and boysenberry flavors so ripe they seem sweet fill out this smooth, full-bodied wine. The texture is soft and not at all tannic, letting the potent fruit flavors flow easily through the finish.”

Great American Wine Company 2013 Red (California); 86 Points.5
“Lots of grapy, raisiny flavors drench this wine with fruitiness, while a smooth, soft texture and touch of sweetness keep the texture mild. It's medium bodied, not at all tannic, and easy to sip.”

Wine of the Week: Great American Wine Co. Red Blend 2013

“The folks at Rosenblum Cellars in California have created a lineup of wines with a patriotic name and labels with some of the proceeds being donated each year to military charities. Fittingly, the base grape (74 percent) for the red blend is zinfandel, a classic American varietal. Petite sirah and cabernet sauvignon offer some additional color and structure. The wine is aged in oak for a year. This wine will have broad appeal to the masses as it is fruit forward, rich and semi sweet with very smooth and balanced tannins. A good starter wine for someone moving into reds.” 6
