A & Cherry Liquor
The Argentinean 'incarnation' of the Malbec grape, with its tighter, smaller berry clusters than the varietal's original French predecessor lends beautifully to making Rose style wine. The Avanti, I think in particular, is a fantastic example of this....

Some black cherry, pepper, a little earthy on the nose. A little light on the palate at first but opens up with a little time to breathe. Some notes of cherry come through on the palate again, but this is not a fruit forward wine. There's just enoug...

A bit of raw wood greets the nose here with oaky spice. On the palate, this shows off a little liquor quality to the transparent black cherry and black currant fruit. Turning a touch creamy on the palate, this remains nicely bright and fresh on the fin...

I know what you're thinking: A rose port? But this little gem will change the way you think about fortified wines. This lovely pink port wine is amazing is suprisingly fresh. It has a fruity, floral aroma, a silky texture, and tastes of cherry & raspb...
Really gorgeously perfumed on the nose with spicy, muscatty floral tones, a hint of plum liquor, touches of smoke, sweet baking spices and pomegranate all coming together elegantly. Very well integrated in the mouth with an elegance to it and soft poli...

Last week I met Jon to trade some bottles. We met at Hi Time Liquor in Costa Mesa--a store with a very excellent inventory of wines. I might have surprised Jon a bit when I declined to do any shopping. There have been numerous hits to my credit cards, lately, and I thought that I should tone it down a bit.Well, that lasted until today.I'd bee... Read More
The nose shows aromatic black cherry, bay leaf, underbrush, black cherry liquor, with a solid dark, core of fruit surrounded by subtle rustic characteristics. The palate has solid blackberry and black cherry fruit, with flint Earth, a touch of mint, and a firm, dark finish that has plenty of grip.The acidity supports everything well in this masc...

Rich, spiced, dark plum is prominent on the nose with a solid layer of shale and mineral Earth underneath. Also present are black pepper, olive, aromatic dried herbs,espresso notes, and black cherry liquor. The palate shows ripe blackberry with lean edges, dark chocolate, and nice acidity balancing things out.There is a definite "yummy" factor i... Read More
Plum, dried fruit, raspberry/cherry liquor. Grenadine. Fairly bold and well balanced. Mild spice. Espresso? A tad sour on the finish but a pleasant wine over-all. I would buy it again. Read More

We are looking for great values, and you can find them from just about every region on earth except for a small handful of regions that seem to only do well with wines that start at what no one I know is calling a value price. On the flip side, there are many wine producing regions around the globe that seem almost incapable of cracking through ... Read More
Really gorgeously perfumed on the nose with spicy, muscatty floral tones, a hint of plum liquor, touches of smoke, sweet baking spices and pomegranate all coming together elegantly. Very well integrated in the mouth with an elegance to it and soft polish to the slight drying tannins that are embedded in a core of black cherry fruit. With enough... Read More
Wow, I've been missing a lot. I should post about the value wines I'm tasting in here. Here's a sneak peak of my top three values for next week:2010 Musto Carmelitano Maschitano Rosso Rosso di Basilicata 13% $15Powerful and tannic on the finish with a suggestion of bitterness to the mineral and think black cherry skin fruit flavors that finger o...

I got so excited about dolcetto this year, see my report on The Return of Dolcetto, that I almost forgot about Barbera! I love Barbera. It’s a rich wine, though too often spoofed up with too much oak, but when you find an example that focuses on the fruit you get a wine that is bursting with mouth cleansing acids, rich with plummy fruit, and li...

Electric acids on attack are followed by rich,powerfully dark yet fresh fruit, unfolding gorgeous layers of plum, earth, and gently spiced fruit. This is an incredible wine, long ... Read More
