And Bottle Cork
91 points. Upon first sniff I immediately felt like I had been belted across the face by a giant candy cane. The deeply saturated mint extract components on this wine are amazing, and the way that they mingle in this enveloping cocktail of petrol and d...

The best-sealed bottle of the 3 I purchased (The second was a dud.) A sleeping beauty with initial notes of chocolate, fig and date soon woke up (last 2 glasses of the bottle, thankfully with my friend born in 1983). Silky cherry and dark red fruit, w...

Pop & Pour: Sediment on cork and in neck of bottle. Lovely deep, dark raspberry color. Terrific multi-dimensional nose with nuances of blackberry, blueberry and musk. Flavors of cherry and oak with a hint of raspberry. Nice flavor, but a very short fin...

Flown to kentucky and enjoyed at the Blind Pig Resturant. The wine seeped through the cork all the way to the mouth of the bottle yet the wine remained intact. Lucious berry flavors with light pepper made for a wonderful accompanyment with our short r...

This was just a delight. I love being able to open a bottle and have it last for a week on my kitchen counter with the cork inside. 20 years worked it's magic on this making it look like a pinot but with the punch of a great scotch. I was expecting a t...

The level was great, the capsule was missing, the cork was so dry it nearly crumbed when I tried to ever-so-delicately "will it out" of its place. The label was partly taped on and had at one point clearly nearly fallen entirely off. I got it, for a ...

Right out of the bottle, the nose was astringent and locked-up as tight as a drum, giving away almost nothing as to what I might expect in a few hours’ time. Layers slowly began to unlock, and aromas shyly began to peak out as the wine took on oxygen. ...

An excellent wine that's only gotten better with age. It needs a little air to open up, but it's broad, refreshing, and tasteful (as in, plenty of taste, not as in decorous). It's towards the end of "classic" Bordeaux, but the bottle I had (kept just i...
This wine has 14.0% alcohol and the bottle is sealed with an agglomerated cork. The wine is a medium garnet color. The impressive nose has cherries, black raspberries, licorice, white pepper, cocoa powder, vanilla and candied violets. This has medi...

I really love this wine, and I love the price even more. This was a staple until the 04 vintage ran out at my local wine store. There are plenty of flavor descriptions here for the 04, so I'll just say that I had great luck with this vintage, not jus...

Not since my first thermoelectric wine cooler have I had a storage malfunction, until this week. I remember a few years back when EMark shared the story of his wine fridge collapse where multiple bottles were lost to breakage. Fast forward 4 years or so and I have an "Oh shit!" moment to share.I was looking for a bottle of wine to drink Monday n... Read More
MY FIRST VISIT TO BERN'S STEAKHOUSE - Tampa (4/8/2017)Like any true wine geek when I was informed of a trade show in Tampa my first thought was "I'm making reservations at Bern's." I have friends who live in Tampa about 3 min from the restaurant so we hooked up for a fun three top. Rachel came recommended as a Somm so I requested her in advance.... Read More
I was round at a mate’s house recently and he opened a bottle of Vin Santo. I’d forgotten how good this Italian sweetie is!Vin Santo is not so well known and is not cheap but boy, it is good! This unfortified sweet white wine is produced in the vineyards of Pomino, Carmignano, Bolgheri, Chianti Classico and Montepulciano in Italy’s picturesque T... Read More
"While screw cap made huge improvements in the world of wine in terms of radically reducing TCA, and certainly in eliminating TCA caused by closure, screw cap closures also have their own issues including bottle reduction and changes in aging from lack of oxygen exchange."Reduction is primarily due to sulfur and that's been long-since addressed....

Opened a 2007 Copain Kiser "En Bas" Pinot Noir to pair with the seared duck breast I made for Valentines dinner. Sniifed the cork and thought uh oh. Poured a splash and confirmed yep, corked. Luckly I had a back-up that was intact. Black cherry and blueberry with a tart a fairly, for a Pinot, tannic finish. No rush to drink these as they are jus... Read More
