Accent on Wine
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...

Rather stony and mean on the nose with a vetiver floral accent to the lean, dusty green apple and apricot fruit. Rich but soft in the mouth, this is broad and low on the palate with some earthy, slightly honeycomb-tinged apple, nectarine and quince fla...

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...

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 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...

It has been called a minefield for decades and continues to present real challenges to the aspiring wine connoisseur for multiple reasons.Chief among them are the dual problems, from the perspective of someone who wants to learn about the region, of terribly ...

2003 Morgenster Stellenbosch 13.5%A bit reticent on the nose but with super finely delineated black currant fruit topped with nuanced tomato leaf, black olive and Necco wafer notes. Really lovely nose that recalls fine Bordeaux and gains depth and complexity with air. Rich and slightly chewy up front with plenty of acidity that gives the flavors... Read More
Cola and spice on the nose with a nice herbal/carob background note framing somewhat wild berry fruit. The fruit is multifaceted with hints of juniper, boysenberry, blueberry and cherry. Super smooth and supple in the mouth though this has nicely refreshing acidity. Really light and elegant in the mouth with taut black cherry flavors and gentle... Read More
65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petite Verdot, 7% Carmenere, 7% Cabernet Franc, 7% MalbecSmells rather minty with a pruny edge to the dark chocolate-covered coffee bean-accented black cherry fruit. With air, this reveals a smoky, nettle tone, some vanilla nuances and an ashy campfire accent. On the palate, this starts out with some dried fruit notes... Read More

While there were some gems to be found in that mix of appellations... Read More
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 boysenberry fruit. The tannins are fine and polished allowing the fruit to really pop on the palate. N... Read More
On the Wine Trail in ItalyWhen Alfonso Cevola says he is on the wine trail, he's not talking just talking local but across the two countries he calls home: Italy and America. He says he's "drawn to the open spaces of America and the small vineyards of Italy." Alfonso not only has a good nose but a good eye as well, as the photos within posts pro... Read More
On a recent trip to Puglia, Italy, I was fortunate to taste through the wines of tens of producers. There was the usual range of styles -- modern to traditional, blockbuster to table wine -- as well as a full range of varieties.I was familiar with some of the wines and most of the grape varieties but only one really surprised me. First, a little... Read More
While much of California’s fame is due to varietal wine, or at least wines that are labeled with a single varietal, there has always been a strong tradition of creating blended wines from the variety of vineyards and grapes that thrive in California. From the original field blends planted by immigrating Italians to the creation of the Meritage ... Read More
