Accent on Wine
Excellent Shiraz for the price. Lovely color on presentation. Blueberry and plum flavors accent the wine along with a soft smoky flavour.
|Winery:||Paul Jaboulet Aèné|
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...

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...
|Region:||USA » Oregon » Willamette Valley|
Minerals, earth, hay and herbs accent the melon and crisp pear fruit on the nose. This is elegant from the get go with surprisingly deep and rich, honey tinged tropical fruit on the palate that remains nicely freshly. There is a nice soft edge to this...

|Region:||Italy » Piemonte » Barbaresco » Tre Stelle|
botte sample A little minty on the nose with subtle hints of herbs, camphor, spicy soil tones in a high toned style. On entry this shows of decisive acids that offer fine cut to the core of juicy blue tinged wild berry fruit. Even with the powerful r...
|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...

A bit dirty on the nose at first but the aromas really build, adding wild berry fruits, meaty accents, spice tones that recall candied violets and hung game with a touch of a terpene accent. In the mouth this is lovely, bright yet deep with a raw fresh...

|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...

|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 » Monterey County » Santa Lucia Highlands|
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...

Last week I began my summer time look at Zinfandel by focusing on Mendocino and lake counties, two regions that have limited presence in the Zin lovers mind. Today I'm taking a different tact and focusing instead on lodi, a veritable Zin lovers paradise.Why you ask?Well simply put it's a region that not only has a great climate for Zinfandel, wi...

Chardonnay is a pain in my ass. Really it is. I’ve mentioned it before, and it’s worth mentioning again. When I lead staff tastings in retail the Chardonnay days were the only one we all feared. Why you ask? Too many wines smell of old tuna fish cans and taste even worse. OK, that is a slight exaggeration, but the truth is that there is more cra... Read More
Cheesy on the nose with aromas of yogurt and green sappy wood along with a strong cinnamon/vanilla top note and some floral accent notes. Soft and creamy on entry, this shows good power in the mouth but it lacks height and just sits on the palate all caramel topped and vaguely fruit. The finish shows the same cinnamon and vanilla streak as the n... Read More
Big Al. Thanks for the excellent report. It sounds like you guys had a very good time. I'm always interested in what people are eating with their wines. So, feel free to add that, next time.I was completely unfamiliar with Goldshmidt wines. So, I scurried off to the internet to see what I could learn. (You, being the IT professional that yo...

Hey everyone, what are some of your favorite 'everyday' or M-F types of wines to accompany a regular dinner? I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia. This is one of those fruit-forward cabs that isn't too complex for me to appreciate, and it usually cost... Read More
California, the land of sunshine, free spirits, and big wines. Right? Yes, of course, all that is true but today we are seeing that free spirited attitude change the paradigm for wine production. Some might say that we are witnessing a return to a different style of wine. Fresher, lower in alcohol and having more in common with wines produced se... Read More
Wine is a continuous journey of discovery. While there are always favorite wines to fall back on, change is good. Change is educational, and above all change is fun. There is always time for Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc but now, as we head into summer it’s time to search out the wines that will be perfect for the warm weather. Unfamiliar wines... Read More
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 mouth, theres a very pretty base of bright, white fruit here, a little tart apple toned with the sp... Read More
I was recently able to taste through a broad selection of 2011 Bordeaux at this year’s ProWein event in Dusseldorf, Germany . For more information on ProWein, an annual trade only wine fair please refer to my brief write up which can be found here: Why You Should be Going to Prowein. I was really looking forward to this tasting. Not only do the... Read More
Many of us think of Chianti as an expensive, everyday wine but of course the truth of the matter is much more complex than that, and it just got even more complex. Adding complexity where it is not necessary seems to be something the Italians excel at, and with the introduction of Chianti Classico Gran Selezione they may have just done just that... Read More
