Accent on Wine
This is dark and brooding on the nose with inky, stemmy, herbal accents to the slatey blue and black fruits that are backed up my gently smoky dried meat tones. Really exceptionally fresh on entry with a wonderful to the bright blackberry and boysenbe...
|Region:||Italy » Piedmont|
Fresh if perhaps slightly fudgy on the nose which shows lots of ripe fresh fruit, a little smoky accent and a tight slightly vegetal floral topnote with lots of incipient tobacco character. In the mouth this is very fresh and a little tight, with good ...

|Region:||USA » California » Santa Barbara County » Santa Maria Valley|
This smells a bit of soil and rocks, with notes of pressed flowers and dried banana peel over nutty dried apple fruit. Bright in the mouth yet showing an edge of creaminess on the mid-palate. Notes of butterscotch and crème brûlée accent the modest cor...

|Region:||Australia » South Australia » Limestone Coast|
Excellent Shiraz for the price. Lovely color on presentation. Blueberry and plum flavors accent the wine along with a soft smoky flavour.
|Region:||Argentina » Mendoza » Santa Rosa|
Eucalyptus accent on the nose. The nose is also quite earthy. The color of this wine is notable and gets your attention. It's a very deep, dark almost violet/black. On the palate there are dark, overripe fruits. Mainly black cherry but with a...
|Winery:||Black Hills Estate Winery|
|Region:||Canada » British Columbia » Okanagan Valley|
This is a a true expression of locale for this delicious, delicate variety from the south of France; a strong scent of fleshy sub-tropical fruit - apricots, peaches and lychee nuts predominate - as expected. There is a ginger infused accent on the apr...
|Winery:||Stonestreet Alexander Mountain Estate|
|Region:||France » Burgundy » Côte d'Or » Côte de Nuits » Vosne-romanée » Romanée St. Vivant|
|Varietal:||Sauvignon Blanc , Sémillon|
62% Semillon, 38% Sauvignon Blanc Hugely aromatic with intense floral framed notes of spiced, dried lemons draped over melon, dried peach and grapefruit aromas. A little soft on entry and smaller scaled in the mouth than the nose suggest. This deliver...
|Region:||Portugal » Douro|
|Varietal:||Muscat , Albariño|
Gorgeous on the nose with an explosion of flowers, honeysuckle, grapefruit rind and passionfruit all topped with subtle notes of white pepper and dusty minerality. Perhaps not quite dry, this still drinks like a dry wine. Firm and minerally in the mout...
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Sonoma Coast|
Soil, earth, prosciutto and stemmy pinot fruit greet the nose with an accent of well-integrated wood spice. Nice acids in balance with the pure fruit. This has a lovely, unforced feel with dark raspberry and cherry tone to the fresh fruit. There are ni...
|Winery:||José Maria da Fonseca|
|Region:||Portugal » Terras Do Sado » Setúbal|
A blend of Castelão (38%), Touriga Nacional (34%), Touriga Francesa (28%) Smells a bit like Syrah, peppery, inky a bit olivy, and filled with briary blue and black fruit, spice notes and a late hint of vanilla. Pretty rich on entry with an attractive...

Have started to see the appeal in Champagne and other quality sparkling wine more and more lately. It's a festive drink with high drinkability and pleasure, provided you are drinking within the wine's general drinking window. I can remember my eldery godmother saying on one of our visits that she couldn't drink wine anymore due to her stomach is... Read More
I guess I am like many people living in the U.S. since I am not entirely sure about how my ancestors came to this country. I think my father’s background is from somewhere in the Balkans, but not much more. My mother’s side is even murkier, thus leaving me a bit adrift when people ask me about it.When it comes to my appreciation of wine, however... Read More
Although not technically a wine, I am posting a few pictures from our Gin tasting class with Dave Broom at the Smithsonian Museum tonight. It was held in the old 'castle museum' of the Smithsonian, right on the mall in Washington DC. First we dined at China Chilanio, a fusion between Dim Sum, Peruivan and Chinese cuisines and then we walked ov... Read More
Wine should always be enjoyable and approachable. It’s an intimidating subject to many people, but it doesn’t have to be. So when it comes to pairing wine and food, I like to have fun with it. And if you love food and wine as much as I do, here are some general pointers to keep in mind when you’re ordering a bottle of wine at dinner, entertainin... Read More

Rioja remains one of the very last bastions of value when it comes to traditionally styled wines. However, it offers consumers considerably more than that: it affords consumers the chance to purchase aged wines that are ready to drink at prices that make them undeniable bargains. But today that is not what I want to talk about. I’m still going t... Read More
The nose is dark and firm, with black cherry skins, mineral Earth, and serious floral notes on top and a suggestion of spearmint. The palate is finessed, with great strength underneath, showing elegant red cherry, and raspberry, with Asian spice, and fine texture. Notes of charred Earth accent the structure, which is complete and balanced, albei... Read More
"Surely there is not another language that is so slipshod and systemless, and so slippery and elusive to the grasp. One is washed about in it, hither and thither, in the most helpless way; and when at last he thinks he has captured a rule which offers firm ground he turns over the page and reads, ‘Let the pupil make careful note of the following...

Due to popular demand (don't ask where that demand came from or you'll spoil my fun), we appear to need some new wine discussion topics. This topic was only relevant to Thursday as a test case but was subsequently expanded to cover the weekend too. What ever you bring up in this topic should either occur on a Thursday - Sunday, or it could be ... Read More
Back at the home front.Well, the Morroccan dinner last Thursday at Ojai Vineyards was a lot of fun. We were the first to arrive and were able to engage Fabian and Bill in some fun conversation and enjoy a glass of Viognier--which was, happily, not as flowery as most Viogniers I have previously had--and an excellent "no sulfites added" Syrah fr...
