Spicy nose of black cherries, black pepper, and even a bit of lighter red fruit. The palate is bright, tart, acidic, with bunches of cranberries, oak and leather. Slightly medicinal on the finish, think children's cough syrup or a cherry amaro, which I...

Well, as D said Garnacha is a good place to start. It's kind of an outlier. Generally, although this isn't going to help much, red grapes from warmer regions will have thicker skins and consequently more tannins than those from cooler regions. That's not strictly true - Garnacha and Nebbiolo come to mind as being clear examples of that NOT being... Read More

But I'm most interested in the least tannic red wines.Reason?I have gout and tannins play havoc on gout and while I still want to try and enjoy Red Wine, esp good red wine I can longer drink medium or hig...

Christmas in Naples is truly worthy of the word abbondanza, or abundance, where preparations for feasting are readied weeks in advance. The kickoff is always Christmas Eve, traditionally known as La Vigilia, or the vigil. In times past, in accordance with church law, this was a day of fast, so only fish dishes appeared.

Italian Roses, that's what’s for dinner. And before you go there let me just say yes these are all from the importer Winebow. They sent me a selection of Italian roses, and no one else did so I'm tasting them together and reporting on them as a package. Good on Winebow you might say.I received great fact sheets with each of these wines, which co... Read More
In yesterday’s Argentine Wine 101 article I gave a brief rundown as to the wheres, whys and whos of Argentine malbec, but offered only a little in the way of whats. Today I can fix that with a modest report on some Malbec that is in the marketplace today. In many ways this selection is the same sort of selection that has been available for sever... Read More
I’ve been on a bit of a get out of your comfort zone kick as of late, and at the same time I’ve been thinking of some Italian white wines and what great values they can be. In truth the ‘Amazing White Italian Wine Values’ article is yet to be written, but it’s been awhile since I spoke about Italian whites in general so I went rooting around in ... Read More
I posted this question because someone on another thread referred to Merlots as "tannic" and I don't think of them that way. But I also realize I am less sensitive to tannins than to, for example, acidity. I have to stop and think about whether tannins are high or medium, although I can kind of quantify them if I stop and think.I think of tann... Read More
While updating the wine notes I wrote during this year’s Nebbiolo Prima, in this case for the 2007 Barolo of the village of La Morra, I was struck again by the variability of this year’s crop of wines.La Morra is known as a region to produce a softer style of Barolo, one that plays into the hands of the many modernist producers there. The modern... Read More
