Accent on Wine
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:||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...
|Region:||Italy » Piedmont|
Fresh if perhaps slightly fudgy on the nose which shows lots of ripe fresh fruit, a little smoky accent and a tight slightly vegetal floral topnote with lots of incipient tobacco character. In the mouth this is very fresh and a little tight, with good ...

|Region:||USA » California » Santa Barbara County » Santa Maria Valley|
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...

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...

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...

|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...
|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...

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...

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.

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
Earlier this year I was able to spend a couple of weeks in Piedmont. Of course my mission there was to asses the upcoming 2010 and 2011 Barolo and Barbaresco wines, an article which is nearing completion, but today I wanted to focus on wines that are more appropriate to the season. While I love Nebbiolo based wines , they are not necessarily an ... Read More
As many of you might know I am half Italian, with family that comes from the province of Trentino in northern Italy. It’s where the seeds for my love for wine were originally planted, and there are plenty of fabulous wines produced there. Though little of it finds it’s way to our shores. That is slowly changing but the truth is there is only so ... Read More
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...
