Stinkingly good Iberian red; lashings of cedar-tinged fruit, a complexity provided by a little bottle age and a very stylish long lasting, mouth-feel http://www.spittoon.biz/the_wine_society_-_brief_notes.html
|Region:||USA » Texas » Gillespie County » Texas Hill Country|
This bottle can only be purchased if you visit the winery in Fredericksburg, TX. Unfortunately, as an attempt to age my bottle, I held on to it too long and it went through traumatic temperature and humidity changes when my small apartment in Galveston...
|Region:||Spain » Jumilla|
|Varietal:||Mourvèdre , Syrah|
This is a wonderful wine for the price. Very fruit forward with bright red lush fruits followed by tobacco and spice. This wine does not have a long finish but has a smooth velvety mouth feel and is very easy to drink. I am entirely impressed by thi...
Amazing. Still sparkling the next day. Can you believe it's a screw top!?? Had half the bottle the first day and no headache! 10% alcohol by vol. Semi-sparkling, dry. Not the best sparkling I ever had but for the price and screwtop and good buzz wit...
|Region:||USA » California » San Luis Obispo County » Paso Robles|
|Varietal:||Zinfandel , Petite Sirah , Syrah|
This is a great value bottle. Starts a little sharp but after an hour open really comes into its own. Red cherries and blue berries come through first followed by baking spices and finally a tart finish. Impressive bottle for the price.
Niki brought this bottle which was favoured by the group. Everyone rated this bottle highly, surprisingly betting all the european wines on the table.
|Winery:||Château de Puligny Montrachet|
|Region:||France » Burgundy » Côte d'Or » Côte de Beaune » Puligny Montrachet|
Drunk as an aperitif. Nose still marked by the oat, hazelnut. The buttered side is obvious, but superbly sharpened by minerality. The hint of lemony acidity that makes me prefer Puligny to Meursault. On the palate, the vanilla opened the doors. Then th...
|Region:||Austria » Donauland » Wagram|
Very light "slim" with an easy finish. Good with light foods like fish or poultry. 1L bottle is also nice enough to drink by itself. Slightly dry on the back end, but no pucker.
|Region:||Chile » Central Valley » Curico Valley » Molina|
This is a great example of good quality and value from Chile. The Echeverria 2004 Reserva Cabernet is both friendly and with its bottle age, complex enough to engage all cab lovers. If you are a stubborn California Cabernet only type... you will be d...
|Winery:||Clos du Bois|
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Alexander Valley|
I drank the whole bottle! I am usually NOT a fan of shiraz but this was recommended by a friend. It had soft fruit in the beginning followed by a little wood and spice with a soft short finish making it very easy drinking.

Boy, good luck. I have had Txakoli only twice in my life. Last spring I had it in a Las Vegas restaurant (and paid over $50 a bottle for it). A few weeks later I found the exact same wine in in a pretty nice wine store that I occasionally frequent (Wine Club in Santa Ana, CA) and bought it for $20. I think this is a great wine to accompany s... Read More
Txomin Etxaniz-Txacoli (chacoli) Estoy estudiando la lengua de español este año. I'm in my second semester and I'm going to audit a Spanish conversation and phonetics class to help me get ready for a trip to Spain in 2016. I will be in the Basque country and would like to try this wine from that region NOW to pair with some Spanish cooking. Does... Read More
Not only is Cabernet Sauvignon the most popular red wine, it’s also one that is best suited to gift giving. It’s a wine that everyone knows and understands. Big, rich and bold, it’s the archetype of red wines that is perfect for the cooler months that lie ahead. While Cabernet does get a bit of a bad rap as being ubiquitous, that doesn’t mean th...

Dave, have you followed the conversation about 1993 CdP? The latest entry is from one of my favorite Forum correspondents, GregT. GregT is very knowledgeable and very opinionated. Thankfully, he also is able to support his opinions. So, they do carry some weight with me. Go over to that conversation and read his comments on drinking windows... Read More
It’s time to start buying gifts for the holidays and that means it’s time to get specific. I’m beginning here in France with recommendations for gifts from some of the country’s most popular wine regions.This is not supposed to be an all inclusive list, so forgive me if I’ve missed your favorite wines. This is simply supposed to be a rough list ... Read More
I took the laptop down and pulled out every bottle and entered it into a listing organized by year and then just alphabetized. The document shows the name of the wine, the area / state or province / the grapes and alcohol content, and the number of bottles I have. If I had some data on it, I also included a drink or hold until 20xx notation. ... Read More
We are on a quest to re-live the magic of enjoying the perfect Amarone with our Christmas dinner and we'd really appreciate some help. Some background...Six years ago this month we were celebrating my wife's birthday at a local, special occasion restaurant and each ordered a glass of red wine with our dinner. My wife ordered a 2004 Zonin Amarone... Read More
Hi, I am an accidental wine enthusiast. As part of a major remodeling project including our family room I revived my interest and enjoyment of wine. Our family room was redone using dark hickory planking and the room has a short wall next to our fireplace. This wall has always presented a challenge to make use of the space. I researched and sear... Read More
This bottle was part of a lot I bought on www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/42890.I bid on this because I had previously had the 2004 vintage which I thought superb.In the 1950's 16 wines of Graves were classified as grand cru as a marketing exercise and this included Chateau Bouscaut both red and white.In 1987,however,the northern part of what...
