A Bottle Or Two
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...

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...

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:||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...

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...

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...

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 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...

I had a 2008 Valdez Zin (Botticelli Vineyard) a couple years ago. I remember that I got three bottles and the first was not very good, but seemed not to be damaged or anything. The other two sat in my fridge for a year or so until one night we needed a night closer bottle so I grabbed one and it rocked. The other was a main course another nig... Read More
In this case, a '79 Mondavi Chardonnay Reserve stole the show. Just the fact that it was still upright, despite passive cellaring (another from a previously discussed estate sale my neighbor scored on) was enough to write about. However, this surprisingly gave some real, almost sublime pleasure, despite being on the precipice of oxidation. It dr... Read More
If anyone has some 2005 primitivo-based wine from the Lazio or Campania region of Italia, here is some info. I have been noticing that pretty much no one holds primitivo [zinfandel] for more than four or five years, and I had two bottles of this in the cellar. As two good friends who really enjoy the Moio wines were coming over, I fetched up on... Read More
What's everyone opening?No cooking for me this year, but I'll be providing all the wines, probably 10-12 bottles. Have to make final cuts tonight but a couple bottles of Chardonnay, Beaujolais, and Pinot are in the mix. Read More
In America tomorrow is the big day: Thanksgiving. Of course most of us will roll out the traditional recipes and ingredients, with turkey taking center stage at the table. Now what about your side dishes? Along with the standby family favorites—sweet potatoes, stuffing, cranberries—there will be the standby wines: a Sauvignon Blanc or a Pinot No... Read More
EMark, How old is the set-up you have? Are you really in need of a new furnace? If the flue is tin, then I'd agree. The new condensing furnaces are vented in PVC and are extremely efficient. You can PM me with what you've been quoted and I could probably tell you if you could get a bottle of wine or two by getting him to sharpen his pencil :) Read More
Emark, our normal routine is to do the tasting and between us pick out the one or two wines we liked the best. We try to limit ourselves to two cases total since with our airline we get one checked bag free. What we've been doing is buying two shipping boxes at one of the first stops and filling them as we go (I've learned to bring packing tap... Read More
I'm wondering if any fellow Snooth forum members know how to tell if a case of wine got too cold during shipment. Specifically, I want to know if the bottles were actually frozen for a period of time during their transit from California to Virginia. This recent cold weather snap has me concerned about a case of wine we are expecting very short... Read More
Despite having been a center of viticulture since the Roman era, it could be argued that the wines of Chablis have never had such cachet among wine geeks as they do right now. As more and more wine lovers have the chance to try older vintages of these steely, austere, and mineral-driven Chardonnays from Burgundy’s northwestern corner, more of th... Read More
I was gifted this wine by my brother-in-law who found it at an estate sale. So, provenance is questionable. This wine is clearly well on the downward slope. Initial impression is that it is pretty flaccid and a bit tart. Subsequent tastes, though, seem to say to me that there is nothing really all that bad about it. The tartness does seem to... Read More
