A Bottle Or Two
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...

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...

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:||Lavradores de Feitoria|
Intensely aromatic showing a bit of toffee, big bold black fruit, spicy notes, bit of sage, sweet black fruit that shows some emerging complexity. Open, juicy, big and pure on the palate, this is packed with black cherry, black berry fruit in a fairly ...

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...

|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:||France » Bordeaux » Bordeaux Supérieur|
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...

|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...

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...

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...

Suduirat can be had for quite a bit less, but, yeah, that's a nice old bottle. But you want to have something for just you and the wife? Because two people won't finish a 750 of Sauternes, unless one of them is Dmcker. I'd go for the Montebello or search around for a Dunn Howell Mountain with a little age on it. Read More
St. Cosme wines have gotten a ton of good press, but they haven't done it for me, even down at the CdR level, where they are pretty inexpensive.JD, I enjoyed the Ramspeck you gave me, memorable because I don't usually go for Merlot at all. It impressed me as a really good wine for the price, a great choice if you want to have a burger or steak ... Read More
Emark, VV could lose minutes of precious drinking time in the vastness of 1k bottles. Something needs to happen here.Since new acquisitions have little correlation to consumption,.. I hear you, loud and clear. But don't you make hypothetical allocation tables? Like, if I have room for 360 bottles, I want to have 1/4 Cab/Bordo, 1/8 Rioja, etc?... Read More
Oops, should have looked here before I mentioned this book elsewhere.I just finished the book. It's clear and presents a fair bit of technical information without being too hard for someone with only fairly basic science training.Carole Meredith's comments are pretty consistent with the reviews I've read as far as public reaction. Almost anyone... Read More
D--They are impressive, those Chianina. The Chiangus are interesting, because both animals have dark skin, but the Chianina have white coats, but the Angus have black coats, and because they are clearly a cross. If you notice (and how could you not?), the Chianina has a long body, high shoulders, but not very long legs, just really meaty. So ... Read More
This book looks enticing but was looking for feedback from anyone who may have read it. Thanks Read More
So I decided to bring the 2014 Bedrock Zin. It was a little firm, opening gradually over the 1-2 hours, and paired fine with the chili. However, I probably should have given this another year or two in bottle before opening. I liked the wine, but maybe not enough to squirrel away more bottles.I understand where D is going with milk now with extr... Read More

The Jeff Hill story is something, isn't it? InVino has been selling the wine via their flash site/email list, and I've seen it at the discounter. You can't sell it in Europe at all (I think the article explains it) and, after reading all that, why would you trust that what's in the bottle is anything but Central Valley bulk juice of who knows ...

This morning I was pontificating in the coffee shop about wine bottle labeling. My buddy, being the the ex-lawyer type, asked a lawyer question. Who monitors this stuff?I then realized that I had never heard of anybody (OK, I'm talking domestically, here.) being accused of say:Labeling a bottle as "Cabernet Sauvignon" and, then, being caught f...
