  • We’re back with another roundup of our favorite wines from the past month. Being August, the past month that is, we were worried that we'd be doing a Sauvignon Blanc round-up, but cooler heads prevailed. We’ve got everything from bubbles to Cabernet Sauvignon on tap for you in this edition of What We’ve been Drinking! As we turn towards cooler w... Read More

  • OT, I'm sure envious of those employee discounts.Picked this up last Saturday at Total Wine to fill out a 6-pack and opened this evening for an after dinner sip. I know that it's somewhat generic and mass produced but it's not all bad for the price (<$13).  The nose is a bit sauvignon blanc'ish. On the palate there's ripe pear, green apple, some... Read More

  • v v -- It seems that Total Wine has some 'house labels" (I don't know what elst to call them) that are darned good wines for the buck.  I agree that Dominican Oaks is one of them and I would add Montoya and the entire Courtney Benham line (Courtney Benham, Martin Ray and Angeline). Whoa, that event you attended, Al was pretty much a shotgun blas...

  • While there are some tastings I do not look forward to each year, there are others that I can’t wait for. For the most part that means things like Barolo and northern Rhone Syrah, but it also includes the greatest set of value wines I get to sample each year; inexpensive Portuguese red wines!Now, admittedly that’s a pretty broad category of vino...

  • Halibut, tonight.  Albarino usually goes well with most seafood. One of our finer Snooth correspondents encouraged me to help this winery since they had taken some damage in the earthquake.  Also, Foxall and DVogler have been raving about Hendry, lately.  So, I ordered a half case of mixed wines--three whites and three reds.Initial impression is...

  • Azul Portugal Douro 2008


    Imported by: Iberia Wines & Spirits CtTouriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca Pretty floral aromas on the nose compete with some raw wood notes for ones attention. A touch soft in the mouth, though big, round and seamless, this is a chewy wine with earthy, bitter apple skin laced, dry fruit flavors that come off as both a ... Read More

  • Dow's Douro Vale Do Bomfim 2011


    Imported by: Premium Port Wines Inc SF50% Tinta Barroca, 20% Touriga Nacional, 15% Touriga Franca, 15% Tinta Roriz Spicy and dark on the nose with hints of resin, raw meat, and lots of cracked pepper spice accenting the core of carob fruit. Soft, clean and pure in the mouth, this is not complex but has a great texture and subtle flavors that ble... Read More

  • Azul Portugal Palmela 2009


    Imported by: Iberia Wines & Spirits Ct100% Castelao This is downright fruity on the nose with a gorgeous bouquet of spicy, pomegranate, wild raspberry, and lingonberry aromas that gain hints of pencil shavings and brownies with air. Smooth and easy to drink, this is low in both acid and tannins with simple and slightly chewy wild cherry and rasp... Read More

  • Vista Touriga Nacional Reserva Beiras 2010


    Imported by: Iberia Wines & Spirits Ct Aromatically this is very interesting with gamy, beefy aromas laced with notes of dried apricots, honeysuckle, a hint of black pepper and dark oak spice all bound up in rich raspberry fruit. it is not completely unlike a northern rhone Syrah. Rich, polished and smooth in the mouth,this is both a bit bright... Read More

    Wine review by Gregory Dal Piaz

  • DM, regarding the Sanford Pinot- I bought it blindly, and wasn't expecting much.  If a pinot is drinkable at 18.99, I am truly amazed.  Yet, I would not rate this as an amazing pinot- it had lots of good stuff going on- bright red fruit, no brett, no purple fruit, etc.  But it did lack some complexity that I like in pinot.  But at that price poi...
