The body i would describe as... cold bar of dark chocolate flowing in oak barrel! taste starts soft and becomes cheerful at the end leaving long peppy dark fruit on your tongue. It's hard to find Russian premium wine above 20$ in regular supermarket and this one was ... Read More

There are so many factors on how a wine will taste when aerated, I tend to like wines that are cellar temperature and as they gradua... Read More

  • The Sunset magazine that arrived today had a (very) short article on some relatively modestly-priced domestic wines.  In that article was a breakdown of one producer's cost for a bottle Pinot Noir.  The producer is Alit.  I am unfamiliar with this winery, but it looks like they are in Oregon.20.6% -- Price of the fruit. 7.8% -- Labor--winery sta...

  • Just saw this offer from Chambers Street. Have had earlier vintages of this label (both whites and reds, though more of the whites with raclette, etc.) when snowboarding in Chamonix and Val d'Isère, and it's (very) good stuff. Downed copious amounts of the whites during lunch and immediately après-ski--great thirst quenchers, while also being ve... Read More

  • Sometimes we get used to paying upwards of $100 for a nice bottle of wine from the wine shop.  Those are the 'good days' that we want to remember, but soon you notice your bank account is dropping faster than Trumps approval rating, so you start looking for more value-oriented wines that are tasty in their own right.When you find a nice wine tha...

  • Had some Beaujolais Blanc last night that an experienced wine person was pouring. We both thought it bitterly funky with maybe some aligote in it. Went and checked the AOC regs to be sure and, as I remembered, only chard can be used in Beaujolais for whites. Interestingly enough it's OK to include aligote and melon de bourgogne (muscadet) in the... Read More
