  • Carménère is an old grape variety from the Gironde. DNA analysis suggests that it’s a cross between Cabernet Franc and Gros Cabernet (which is itself a distant relative of Cabernet Franc). Fortunately for our collective palates, when it comes to wine grape parentage, breeding with a relative can be a very good thing. Carménère is a highly refine... Read More

  • The first question is going to be about provenance.  How was it stored? With the price that a bottle of CLR commands the question needs a good answer.  OT has given you 2, but just a quick internet check will find several - heck KL Wines even has a wine auction side.  Part of your job should be to check the history of any given company you choos...

  • I would like to say I have read a lot of posts and find more of these fascinating than not. I have been trying to educate myself about wines, not because I indulge but because I have inherited some wine from my fathers estate and want to part with them, The research I have gathered is minimal and somewhat frustrating at times.I have some very ni...

  • Old wines you decant mostly for sediment, IMO.  Too much air can kill them.  Unless it's old Barolo, which needs decanting to lose the funky, dirty smells.  Young wines also want decanting to open them up, but sometimes they need days and days.  Better just to let them rest, although we all succumb to our infanticide impulses now and then.Wines ...

  • Were those cases stashed for posterity or just forgotten? Let's see, in 1978, I moved from California to MA.  The Red Sox and Yankees had a one game playoff.  Bucky Dent hit a home run to win it for the Yanks.  Keith Moon died that fall.  Earlier in the year there was a big blizzard in Boston.  (Part of how we came to live there.)  I crossed the...

  • Al, Roederer Estate is a HUGE production wine.  BevMo and TotalWine should have it.  The Hermitage is the grand cuvee and a good value as well, but around $45 vs. $20 or less for the regular. Not going to post photos at this late date, but our NYE wines were a Prosecco called Italian Fox that I bought for the obvious silly reason.  It was pretty...

  • Shsim, nice to see you dropping in.  I mentioned that Fonseca Periquita a while back in my Iberian wine discovery thread. We were away on family business for a week, so that slowed down my buying.  I did manage to come back and find some more of this $5 Montepulciano di Abbruzzo that has become my go-to pizza wine.  Good with red sauced pasta, t...

  • I've enjoyed their wines for many years - mostly chardonnay, it is full of apple, a little nutiness, with hints of rose petal and great acidity.  at 11% alc it's not overbearing and has a very satisfying finish that has good length. Read More

  • This was a New Years Eve leftover - not much though - in fact just about every other Prosecco I've had has been better. But we must be kind to others.No comment on this. Read More
