    Consistent in vintage to vintage. Inky dark juice in the glass, blackberry, bosenberry, oak, tongue coating tannins, chocolate and good acidity puts this above it's price points. Full and smooth, I've found that this is better with a couple of years in the cellar. Drink now - Paul 88 points Read More

    Wine review by rckr1951


  • Well here's a Los Gatos cellar that's more functional in some ways. Apparently holds 5,000 bottles, though looks like that could be increased pretty easily. Cost of the house holding the cellar is barely more than 1/10 that of the Santa Barbara estate housing the cellar seven posts above (and 1/25 the price of the estate with the barrelled rumpu...

  • Yeah, that property has a *lot* more--should see the equestrian facilities. The home of the Lippizaners has nothing on them. Been in the same family for a century. Probably one of the major estates on the block in the western US right now, if not any part of the States. Hasn't been updated so the rumpus room looks like it does, but to me that's ... Read More

  • Wine myths are often unspoken but incredibly pervasive. Their looming presence may prevent wine novices from feeling confident about how they drink. Most would agree that wine experiences are best enjoyed with friends, but myths can hinder otherwise joyous wine drinking occasions. “Sparkling wine MUST be enjoyed in a flute glass, or else!” “Wine...

  • Interestingly enough, was an offer from our friend Ian Cauble that falls right within this thread's discussion:  Massimo Clerico, Nebbiolo, Lessona DOC Piedmont, Italy 2008 If there is one lesson that is common amongst all the great red wines of the world, it is that nothing can substitute for optimal bottle age.

  • Vino, congrats! Let's see photos when you have bottles organized, too! Or is that everything at the moment? Nice to have that much in the house. My cellar is passive and a 2nd basement in a commercial facility (if unpaid by me since it's a friend's), but it's an hour away on foot or 15~30' (depending on traffic) away by car. Available between 10... Read More
