  • Better wines today. 2010 Habit Red Wine taking the cake tonight. This is one of the better dry reds I've had in a while. Have been holding on to it for a couple few years, so it was nice to see some bottle age pay off.  Really nice freshness, bold red fruits, discreet oak, solid tannins and a nice overall complexity to it. This is mainly a Caber... Read More

  • Jist for THOI is searched through about 600 wines from Germany (Many of them overlapping.)  that are available on the internet.  There were less than 10 reds from Germany - only Spatburgunder and Dornfelder.  There were a few Zweigelt from Austria - which is a varietal I find interesting and represents a different wine exoerience.  There were ZE...

  • Chateau d'Aiguilhe Cotes de Castillon 2010

    Snoothrank:

    John Talbot, we love ye. You may have lost the Battle of Castillon (July 17, 1453), but the regionally defined wine is great - especially in 2010. This wine has cedar (and I know about cedar), chocolate and cherry on the nose - with a hint of vanilla spice (oak treatment). The entry is spicy with blackberry, chocolate and a hint of tannin.

  • You chaps are only talking about the USA. The French have an organisation that monitors AOC rules. If you buy a bottle of French wine you can be confident that all the grapes came from that defined geographical area and that the winemaker has stuck to the aproved methods of viticulture and winemaking for that appellation Read More

  • Hi. I was recently going through my pictures from Germany along the Rhine in 2000. I drank an awesome red wine there from the Mosel area. This wine tasted almost like fruit juice and was the best I had ever tasted. I don't remember the name and have been unable to find any wine that matched the flavor of that wine. Any suggestions as to where I ... 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 ...

  • Thanks, guys.I had never heard of Jeffrey James Hill, before.  I'm sure he was big news up in the Napa area, and I'm surprised that I did not see anything about him on the wine boards.  So, the article that you pointed to was pretty interesting, Paul.  I did a bit more searching, and this artilce in the NY Times is very interesting--"In Vino Ver...

  • DM, I chose Alsace, the CFO did some more research and Colmar seemed very nice, centrally located and big enough to have plenty of amenities. We're going with two other couples so we'll be doing a lot of exploring as well as two days of wine-centric activities. We've contracted with a tours by locals guide to take us around on Sunday with visits... Read More

  • Found this thread while doing some research for our upcoming trip. We'll be spending a week in Alsace, staying in Colmar and doing day trips out and about. We'll be travelling with two other couples, two days are going to be dedicated solely to wine exploration. I've hired a tours by locals guide early on and am planning a 2nd day exploring wine...
