  • 1979 Kopke Colheita Port 1979

    Snoothrank:

    Finished lunch at Marcello's with this. Wish I had been able to try this as part of a tasting flight. Seemed wonderfully complex, though distinctly different than a typical Tawny. Beautiful medium dark amber in the glass. Plenty of dried figs, golden raisin, then a vanilla maple and pecan sweetness. Seems 'thinner' in the mouth than a typical Ta... Read More

  • Chateau de Montfaucon Baron Louis Lirac 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Lirac - a fine wine in its own right, just across the Rhone from Chateauneuf-de-Pape, is nevertheless a cheap alternative to CdP. This wine, for instance, from the very good 2010 vintage, exudes blueberry in spades and introduces cherry, cola, dark chocolate and (of course) blueberry to the palate - which has great staying power. Its power dim... Read More

  • Domaine du Monte Saint Jean Vin de Pays de l'Île de Beauté 2005

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this bottle of wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/74354 for £5.50.Wine production on Corsica goes back to at least 600BC but in the 1960's it was very much boosted by the arrival of re-patriated settlers from Algeria [the so-called pied noirs ] ]to the east coast.The Domaine du Mont Saint Jean grows vines for the U...

  • DM, as fate would have it, I am actually midway through a PN at this very moment.My opinion doesn't come from having tasted one many years ago. I do give it every chance. In the last 2 weeks I have had three. This one is the most PN-like of the three, which is rather unfortunate. However, I'm high on the winery - they do a lot of different grape... Read More

  • I don't know what the science would be. I generally don't open a wine right away after it's been shipped.It may just be superstition because I really can't say I know for certain one way or another. But it always raises some additional questions.When you buy something and take it home from the store, does that count? If so, all the people who ta... Read More

  • Which brings up the old line about Cali Syrah, "What's the difference between a case of Syrah and a case of Pneumonia? You can get rid of the Pneumonia!"That's what distributors were telling Growers and Vintners 10 years ago. Syrah WAS planted in a lot of the wrong places and that had a lot to do with why the public never grasped it. Just look o... Read More
