A Bottle Or Two
Dark and rich red color to this wine. The nose straight out the bottle shows oaky chocolate notes with rich raspberry and black raspberry aromas. In the mouth this wine has firm tannis that are soft and lush with a palate showing wound up black raspber...

With this number, the Mendoza Bodega Norton has come up with a clear winner in both quality and value. We have a deep, dense and powerful wine dominated by the plummy, blackcurrant flavors of the 3 principal cepages used in the blend. The Malbec lend...

For my money if you can find a blend containing a drop or two of Syrah and Carmenere with Cab. Sauv. and/or Merlot for less than $20. BUY IT. This was a very good bottle of vino. Thank you, Chile. If only I could afford to visit. 3/5/15...I believe win...

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...
|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...

|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:||Produttori del Barbaresco|
|Region:||Italy » Piemonte » Barbaresco|
A lovely Barbaresco with solid acidity and a cool, composed character featuring crisp cherry, soil and dried floral aromatics. the wine is medium bodied and fairly elegant with small but precise tannins and a taut backend that leads to a long, sneaky f...
|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...

I haven't bought a bad bottle yet! My husband and I really enjoy drinking this alone or with a meal. Not too sweet but yummy enough to make you want to take another sip. If you are sharing a bottle with someone, be sure to get two!
|Region:||USA » California » Mendocino County » Yorkville Highlands|
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...

Met up with Mark and Roger, along with our wives and Ryan last night @ AR Cucina. My first time there, and seemed to be a perfect fit, casual and somewhat lively atmosphere, and good italian food ranging from salads, (not so heavy) pizza's, pasta's, and risotto. My wife and I tasted from all categories except the pasta, and all were very good.We... Read More
Fox, obviously your cellar needs some strengthening. ;-) Hey, maybe I want a 3.78 L bottle of '70... Barbaresco1962 To me, Barbaresco means, first and foremost, the Produttori del Barbaresco; I’ve tasted back over more than 50 years of their history, and the high qua... Read More

Not since my first thermoelectric wine cooler have I had a storage malfunction, until this week. I remember a few years back when EMark shared the story of his wine fridge collapse where multiple bottles were lost to breakage. Fast forward 4 years or so and I have an "Oh shit!" moment to share.I was looking for a bottle of wine to drink Monday n... Read More
MY FIRST VISIT TO BERN'S STEAKHOUSE - Tampa (4/8/2017)Like any true wine geek when I was informed of a trade show in Tampa my first thought was "I'm making reservations at Bern's." I have friends who live in Tampa about 3 min from the restaurant so we hooked up for a fun three top. Rachel came recommended as a Somm so I requested her in advance.... Read More
One of my few discoveries this year has been CA Viognier of all things.As per usual, someone on WB posted the details of the latest Dirty & Rowdy release, and at first glance, it seemed like a release I wouldn't be interested in....then I got to remembering a 2014 Kamen Viognier that a friend opened recently (in India nonetheless), and how surpr...

A very good vintage of a very good wine, which has struggled somewhat in terms ... ... sparingly. Perhaps gift a bottle or two to the right people. 2010 will improve over time, so lay the stuff down (though drink one now with those other folks to get a feel for its maturation curve). You don't want to find yourself wishing several years down ... Read More
Hi, I was wandering how one goes about pricing the value of wine. I have 1/2 dozen 750ml bottles of 2010 Penfolds St Henri Shiraz that I thought I might sell. Read More
