Accent on Wine
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...

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...

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...

Excellent Shiraz for the price. Lovely color on presentation. Blueberry and plum flavors accent the wine along with a soft smoky flavour.

|Varietal:||Corvina , Rondinella , Molinara|
Huge aromas of raisins, dried blackberries, black cherries are joined by accents of bitter chocolate, black tea, and leather on the complex and deep nose. This is relatively sweet, with huge acids keep this lively, if quite creamy with black cherry fr...

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...

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...

My 6th place wine, the group’s 7th Dark strawberry fruit greets the nose with darker berry accent notes and plenty of savory, slightly beefy complexity. There really is fabulous purity to the fruit here on the nose. Bright, round and intense in the m...

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...

Intense and fresh on the nose, this explodes with fresh citrus notes, kiwi peel, salty mineral elements and lovely Asian pear and acacia aromas all topped with gentle toasty spice. Reticent on entry, this is rather laid back early on with vivid acids that slowly lift up the fine, pure fruit. Shows grapefruit, melon and pear fruit, maybe a hint o... Read More
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 core of apple and pear fruit. The oak influence is obvious but sweet here, and that sweetness real... Read More
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...

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
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...

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
