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.
|Region:||Italy » Veneto » Valpolicella » Recioto Della Valpolicella|
|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...
|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...
|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...

|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:||USA » California » San Joaquin County » Lodi » Cosumnes River|
|Varietal:||Merlot , Cabernet Sauvignon|
Hints of ginseng and carob accent the candied cherry and blackcurrant aromas that gain a dusting of cocoa and cedar with air. This is broad and low in the mouth on entry, with plenty of toasty, spicy accents to the slow-to-emerge dark fruit. Hints of g...
|Winery:||Novy Family Wines|
|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...
|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:||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...

|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...

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...

I was wondering what sort of new topic I could start that would pair nicely with my previous posting 'Weekday Wines'; well here it is - Weekend Wines. Sometimes I just have to stop and take a minute to pat myself on the back for my quick wit but alas, this isn't one of those times. Anyway, why not talk about wines we enjoy on weekends? These ...

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...

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
