We have selected some of the top home grown Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling from some of the leading producers in the country. The criteria is to offer outstanding wines guided by their respective terroir, varietal characteristics and value for money, we have also included an Italian Vernaccia from Tuscany which is very distinctive and yes...very aromatic. For those of you tired of the same old Chardonnay or some of the over the top and in many cases sweet Sauvignon Blanc, this is for you, if you haven’t tried any of them before we suggest that you do because they are among the best to be found and yet… very affordable. – Description from iskicm

  • Esser Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon California 2009


    Nettles, black currant and black raspberry on the nose with a hint of roasted herbs and a fine underlay of oak. Rather smooth on entry, and perhaps a touch soft with some significant and extracted tannins. There's some pleasant fruit here, and the wine is nicely dry, but at the same time this is a bit rough with more structure than fruit. Nice h... Read More

  • I'm concluding our two week look at Pinot Noir for Snooth's Global Tasting Initiative with a round up of my favorite wines. You might be surprised that I'm collecting a list of previously reviewed wines, but I need to let you in on a little secret: even wines that get great reviews and scores may not be to my or your liking!Yes, it's true. Besid... Read More

  • With so much new release Rioja tasted recently, and my ever increasing exhortations to buy these wines based on the fact that they represent great value, I thought it only fair to give you a glimpse into my recent dinner party experience with the very highly thought of 1970 vintage.These are not the same wines that Rioja produces today, many thi...

  • Pewsey Vale Vineyard Riesling Eden Valley 2011


    Lovely mineral water, sandy soil, and floral notes accent the Meyer lemon core of fruit. Rich and deep on entry this has absolutely wonderful freshness and fine cut. It expresses a nice mineral edge early on with subtle apple flavors topped with a fine citrus quality. this is dry and austere, structured with broad shoulders that lead into a fine... Read More

  • I have always wanted a set of general Rule of Thumb style guides for wine pairings. Well, a friend of mine in the wine biz sent me his wine + chocolate guide so I thought I'd share. Mad props to my friend "D" who pulled this together. -Heath  Here are some examples (keep in mind these are simply rules of thumb).... White chocolate: tends to be m... Read More

  • Domaine de la Vougeraie Musigny Grand Cru 2009


    Bearing in mind thet the 2009 has not yet left Premeaux Prissey yet, how can anyone make a comment in what it's like? The '03 was sublime, and personally I found the '02 rather severe and dour in comparison. Have tasted the 06, and liked it. However everyone says the '09 will be fabulous, and this wine is a Premier Cru manque [with an acute acce... Read More

  • Rosé wines are always an early indication of a vintage’s promise. In the case of 2010, Spain enjoyed a fine growing season with sufficient rainfall and slightly cooler than average temperatures across much of the country, which allowed for the production of rather well-balanced wines as evidenced by this selection.Photo courtesy My Grape EscapeS...

  • J Lohr Cabernet Sauvignon Hilltop Reserve 2007


    Layered sweet toasty oak and black cherry fruit greet the nose with a touch of mocha adding an accent. Rich and fruity with some nice tannins serving to pin down the slightly soft mass of black fruit on the palate. Theres an attractive herbal edge to the black currant fruit and while this is fairly fruit-driven today, I would drink it over the n... Read More

  • Chateau de Fontlade. Aurelia Primae Rose Coteaux Varois En Provence. France 2010


    40% Grenache, 40% Syrah, 20% Rolle - This is lightly fruity on the nose but it has an underlying sweetness that supports waxy cherry fruit with gentle chalk tones and a lovely lemon verbena accent. This is really playful in the mouth with a superb fruit/acid balance that allows thus noticeably fruity wine to fill the mouth but remain zippy and ... Read More

  • Nothing says summer like rosé wine. Well, that not true; nothing says summer like bottles and bottles of this captured sunshine! Sales of rosé have exploded over the past several years and while that has brought many more players into the game, the results aren’t always what we’re looking for. I fear rosé is headed down the path of Riesling! ... Read More
