A Bottle Or Two
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...

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...

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 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...

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...

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...

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:||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 ...

I've mentioned elsewhere my aversion to flashy wine storage areas. I've mentioned the extensive renovations we've recently undergone that will enable us to survive three more years of having two teen girls, while making our abode a welcoming stopover for people as tall as GregT and as numerous as JD and his family. (We draw the line at families... Read More
I bet that Ridge wine was very good. Why is the label so stained? Shaky hands?Uh, Al, I have to say the '07 Ridge Lytton Springs was very, very good.If, you care to go back in this and other threads where we post on wines we are enjoying (or not) you will see that the labels of quite a few of mine are stained. These stains were caused by an a... Read More

When I first became interested in wine I used to get Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino mixed up, never mind having difficulty pronouncing them. A few years down the line I’d sorted it; both are from the Tuscan town of Montalcino in Central Italy, from the same grape variety, and come in a similar shaped bottle. Or had I? A recent vi...

I don't shop at TotalWine, but that's because I don't have one near me. NorCal is getting its first, in Fremont, or maybe it just opened. I tried to go there when I was down that way, but it wasn't open yet. I'm no snob: Heck, I shop at BevMo once in a while because it's less than two blocks from my office. My main complaint with them is th... Read More
I bought two bottles of this wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/76666 for £10.Cote de Brouilly is a small appellation for red wines created in 1938 [ although viticulture here goes back to at least the Romans ] from the slopes of Mount Brouilly an extinct volcano about 20 miles south of the town of Macon. It is one of the '... Read More
There’s only one source for the best Italian wines in the world: Gambero Rosso. You can think of this publication as Italy’s answer to the United States’ Wine Spectator. Every year, Gambero Rosso puts on a worldwide “roadshow” known as Tre Biccheri (which means “Three Glasses” in Italian), to pour their best wines of year. “Three Glasses” is the... Read More

My quest to uncover wine categories that aren’t getting as much love as they deserve continues, and just in time for Valentine’s Day. As luck would have it many of the same groups of wine that don’t get enough attention also represent terrific values for wine lovers. Too many wines, too little time is one reason that some of these categories are... Read More
