Accent on Wine
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. At’s a narrow ...
|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...

|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...

Lovely mineral water, sandy soil, and floral notes accent the Meyer lemon core of fruit. Rich and deep on entry this has absolutely wonderful freshness and fine cut. It expresses a nice mineral edge early on with subtle apple flavors topped with a fine...
|Winery:||Black Hills Estate Winery|
|Region:||Canada » British Columbia » Okanagan Valley|
This is a a true expression of locale for this delicious, delicate variety from the south of France; a strong scent of fleshy sub-tropical fruit - apricots, peaches and lychee nuts predominate - as expected. There is a ginger infused accent on the apr...
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Sonoma Coast|
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:||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...
|Winery:||Byron Vineyard & Winery|
|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...
|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...

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...

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
