A Bottle Or Two
I had a glass or two of this last night and must say WOW. A little meat on the nose, it was incredibly smooth in the mouth. It had a nice plum flavor. This was such a well rounded wine I will probably order more if they don't run out. The good news...
|Winery:||Altos las Hormigas|
|Region:||Argentina » Mendoza|
A mild malbec with a faint nose and a bright, inoffensive flavor, quite a good substitute for a cheap bottle of Cahors but likely a touch too acidic for fruit lovers. The key is to leave it open for a day or two – then the wine takes on a velvety yet s...
|Winery:||Domaine de l'Arlot|
|Region:||France » Burgundy » Côte d'Or » Côte de Nuits » Nuits St. Georges|
2008 Nuits-Saint-Georges Clos des Forets, 1er Cru Domaine de l'Arlot When one course calls for red and the other white - don't compromise. Go with two half bottles. Or - you want some excitement, but aren't going to finish a full bottle - don't go b...
|Winery:||Produttori del Barbaresco|
|Region:||Italy » Piemonte » Barbaresco|
A brilliant ruby red color that, after two hours of decanting, was explosive on the nose with cherry fruit, sweet tobacco, and chalk dust. The nose came across as a bit hot but very expressive. On the palate more cherry, or possibly cranberry with ro...
|Region:||Italy » Sicily » Vittoria|
Rather assertive on the nose with dark cherry fruit topped with fine floral and herbal top notes. This smells decidedly ripe. Youthful and maybe a bit closed on the palate with a slightly dense feel, though this remains lively and elegant. There’s a re...
|Winery:||Cameron Hughes Wine|
|Region:||USA » California » Napa » Mt. Veeder|
Dark and earthy straight out of the bottle with eucalyptus top notes and dark cherry fruit wrapped in a subtle shroud of integrated, tobacco tinged, oak spice. Bright and lean on entry with a bit of a hard feel initially. There is a core of cocoa and ...
|Winery:||Betts & Scholl|
|Region:||Australia » South Australia » Barossa » Eden Valley|
A lovely nose that blend citrus, lime blossom and apricot notes with machine oil notes. In the mouth this is quite rich yet very acid driven and dry. It's starts of with a rather grapefruity attack that is cut by assertive and mouthwatering mineral ton...
|Winery:||Martin Ray Winery|
|Region:||USA » California » Napa County|
This is a fun easy wine and I try to have a bottle or two around for when I have guests over. Those that do not traditionally like red wine can enjoy this with a meal. Good full flavor in the mouth an excellent wine with lots of different types of me...
|Winery:||Château de Macard|
|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Bordeaux Supérieur|
|Varietal:||Cabernet Franc , Merlot , Cabernet Sauvignon|
Fantastic superieur with an equally impressive price. I bought this bottle to drink now but would do good with some age. I will probably buy another bottle or two to age. Young Bordeaux aroma of red fruits (cherry and raspberry) and slight touch of tob...

|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Crémant de Bordeaux|
I thought on the first sip on New Years Day, 2011, I was drinking hard cider and didn't like it much, but Mary loved it. So the next day when we finished the bottle while unChristmasing the house, I came around some to her way of thinking. While we bot...

Started with the two champagnes, and white burgundies. The White Burgundy flight was spectacular! As were the food pairings...Simple Pizza/Pancake for the Champagne - Clos des GoissesSome Salmon sashimi w/ the 66' Bollinger. Some life left, but it was a case of the 99' Clos des Goisses being a little young, and the 66' Bollinger a little too old... Read More

You guys know that I'm always one to push the limits. In fact, I like to grab life by the pu##y.....er....let me rephrase that....I like to enjoy pairing wine with politics and things of this nature. Anyone who knows me might not realize I am better with wine/event pairings than with wine/food pairings. So, with that being said, I need to pai... Read More
It has become clear that wine drinkers are demanding varietal wines beyond the strongholds we've seen on shelves and menus for decades. Let's face it; there was a palate gap in the United States' most commonly consumed varietals. That gap has been bridged by Garnacha. Not a single other commonly consumed grape brings the same level of crowd-plea... Read More

Last night a big rainstorm was predicted to roll in. This it did, but we had a Nationals baseball game to attend with our friends Debbie & Rick (they have 4 season tickets and sell the extra ones to friends). We were sure the game would be canceled, but it wasn't so we headed into the District with Rick driving the four of us. The new routine... Read More
When he started Kendall-Jackson Winery thirty-two years ago, Jess Jackson's vision was that everyone should have access to a luxury bottle of wine, wherever or whoever they are. The goal was to make premium wines at accessible prices. Judging by the scope and scale of Kendall-Jackson today, we can all agree he made good on his vision. Kendall-Ja... Read More
OK, since several people made some kind comments, I'll add this to my previous post about the Keenan and that CF.First, yes, it is a very good wine.Several people here, know that I am a Keenan cheerleader. I confess that I am a member of their club. So, twice a year they send me a four-bottle package. Keenan is, mostly, a red wine producer, b... Read More
Come on - it's the best election EVAH!I figure if you lay in a good supply and drink a bottle or two a day, the next four years will be OK. Read More
