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...

Tested warm and cold. Said I wouldn't buy another but I did, and this bottle is much better balanced and integrated than the bottle I tried in March 2010. Rich nose and taste, acidic when you first open but the fruit expands and acid decreases to accep...

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 like this wine! Got a few bottles of it in 2006. Some I drank right away, and enjoyed. I opened my last bottle recently and felt that it didn't age as well as it should have, even though it wasn't too long. While it had a nice bouquet, it was a l...

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...

|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...

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!

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...

Black berries and cherries integrated with the right amount of spice along with a bit of minerally earth. It seemed a bit closed so it could benefit from two or three more years in the bottle. This wine is a great value and I intend to drink a lot mo...

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...

I bought this bottle of wine from a shop in London's Kensington [www.thesampler.co.uk]. Gaillac is an appellation created in 1938,although viticulture in the area goes back to at least the Romans,for red,rose,white and sparkling wines from 50 communes around the small town of that name some 30 miles north-east of Toulouse in the Tarn valley.Ther...

Have started to see the appeal in Champagne and other quality sparkling wine more and more lately. It's a festive drink with high drinkability and pleasure, provided you are drinking within the wine's general drinking window. I can remember my eldery godmother saying on one of our visits that she couldn't drink wine anymore due to her stomach is... Read More
As wine lovers who among us doesn't enjoy doing horizontal tastings of wines from a single vineyard? That would probably be none of us yet the opportunity to do this doesn't surface very often. I remember doing a Limerick Lane Zinfandel horizontal last year with 6 takes on the same fruit. Other than that I'm at a loss. It's a great opportunity t... Read More
Had Foxall and family over last night. Heard E-Mark hosted as well, so please post if you're up for it Mark!Kind of an abbreviated visit, but I'm glad they were able to stop by. I made sure to keep the wine flowing, which we maybe finished half of the 5 bottles opened.Pierre Joet Rose NV: This showed real nice and crisp. Seemed just what the doc... Read More
I find my 1995 Madiran a bit dry/tart for my taste and am considering blending the remaining four bottles with a Cabernet. Any objections? Suggestions? March 25, 2016 Read More
Apart from lack of hygiene in the winery, what part of the winemaking process allows for a funky nose? Read More
When you think of drinking wine at the appropriate age, what picture comes to mind? Usually it is a red wine. Maybe a decanter is involved? It’s a special occasion or with friends and family. However, not all wine is designed to age a long time. I have heard so many stories of people saving a bottle of wine that they were given as a gift only to... Read More
We had a 2013 Cameron Hughes Cab Sav Lot 600 from Oakville last night and it was just OK. It's very primary with dark fruit and not much integration and pretty one dimensional. The finish was not long enough for us. This bottle has received some conversation over on the WB forum so we checked in sooner than later. I'll check in on another bottle... Read More
Don´t know, I am at the last glass. It´s still drinkable, but I don´t think that it got better, I guess I just adjusted to it. Its strange, its not tannins, I am used to astringent tannins and they usually blend in after a few hours of decanting. But this is something else, a really annoying taste. I was searching for hours on the net and the cl... Read More
I am drinking a 2013 Porca de Murca, Douro Reserva from Portugal. The wine seems to be fine, clear sight, clean fruity nose, in the beginning its fine on the palate (maybe a lack of fruit compared to the nose)... everything but the finish. It has a weird bitter finish, very unpleasant. Its not the tart taste of tannins (even so it is pretty high... Read More
