Accent on Wine
Smoke, fudge and soil tones accent the core of black fruit on the nose. This is a big wine, fairly dry, with a lovely firm texture and slightly creamy flavors that, juxtaposed against the firmness, make for an elegant and powerful mouthfeel. There’s pl...

|Region:||Italy » Tuscany » Brunello Di Montalcino|
The furthest south of these wines, also at about 900 foot elevation, 18 to 20 day maceration, highest alcohol of the bunch Perfumed and gently spicy on the nose with an accent of oak and sweetness layered over strawberry and mineral fruit, turning a b...
|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:||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:||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:||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.
|Winery:||Lange Estate Winery & Vineyards|
|Region:||USA » Oregon » Willamette Valley AVA » Yamhill County » Dundee Hills|
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 t...
|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...
|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...

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...

I was recently in Oregon, for the annual International Pinot Noir Celebration, which is a splendid reason to visit Oregon’s wine country, though you don’t need such motivation to be wowed by what you’ll find in McMinnville and the surrounding areas. While tons of Pinot were in fact tasted and consumed during that long weekend, today I want to ta... Read More
Time to do a little cellar cleaning and what better way to start than with the odds and ends of Italian wines that have been building up in the basement. Sadly theres no real cohesive theme here, though a few varieties do appear more than once among the tasting notes that follow. There’s not even a pricing paradigm that’s useful here, though mo...

Slightly green and vegetal aromas on the nose recall garden vegetables with hints of tomato leaf laid over rather sweet and slightly spicy lemon and lime fruits with just a hint of melon as well. This is clean and focused in the mouth. Ats a narrow wine on the palate, but rapier sharp with lovely acidity supporting seashell like accent notes f... Read More
As you may know, Zinfandel is my favorite American grape variety. The wines produced tend to span a wide range of fascinating styles and can reveal fabulous terroir. I belong to a grand total of three winery lists, two of which are primarily for Zinfandel. From two of the the greatest producers of not only Zinfandel, but the great field blends 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
January 27th saw the arrival of the Benvenuto Brunello road show, from The Fortezza in Montalcino, to Gotham Hall in Manhattan. The purpose of the event was to showcase (and welcome) the 2009 vintage of Brunello Di Montalcino, being as it was, the January five years after the harvest year.Approximately thirty producers were present to pour the w...

My 6th place wine, the groups 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 mouth, theres a fine mineral streak to this on the palate along with plenty of bright, slightly jam...

So what’s not to like? 2010 Barolo is in the hype machine right now and as much as i would like to say that they hype machine is in overdrive, which it perennially is, this is one time where much might be warranted. that’s not to say that 2010 is a universally fabulous vintage. It simply is not with more than a handful of wines showing under-rip... Read More
Planted in 1985 under the winery just north, a little sandier than the others, which lends it a floral, sweet dried floral and tobacco that sets this cru apart Mineral and sweetly spicy on the nose with an almost cinnamon, great Chinese five spice character and tobacco base notes and a faint marine saline accent. Bright and clear on entry this ... Read More
So what’s the first thing you think of when you read Cariñena? I thought of the grape Cariñena, aka Carignane, eponymous as it is. What I did not think of was the region Cariñena in Spain’s province of Aragon. Why is that? It’s a good question, and one I resolved while visiting the region briefly early last month. Cariñena the region doesn’t jum... Read More
