Lovely and delicious. This wine is excellent for drinking rright now. Drank after having the bottle open for about 30 minutes. Enjoyed by everyone.

Wonderful wine, a great buy and excellent taste. I enjoyed the first glass out of the bottle by itself and again with dinner the next evening. A very good mouth feel with a good even finish.
|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.

The 2014 edition of "Saint Vincent" is delicious - much like the previous 2 editions - and affordable by almost everyone. The elegant, pear, tisane and gooseberry flavours are clean, pure and without edge - surprising at this price point. Though inte...

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...

Blood red color; hints of tobacco and catsup underneath the cherries on the nose; very complex taste with sour cherries; a long, wonderful finish of strawberry and cherry that makes me want to keep drinking, Overall I was surprised by the brightness o...
|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...

This was a very good value. I could easily have finished the whole bottle by myself. However, other party goers also found it to their liking. I have come to favor the State of Washington's red wine blends. BROAD STATEMENT ALERT. They consistently prov...
|Region:||Spain » Castilla y León » Ribera Del Duero|
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

I've taken the liberty of posting a portion of Kermit Lynch's most recent newsletter. It's a piece Jim Harrison wrote for them nearly a decade ago on wine's significance in his life, and there are several specific examples of food and wine matching.Harrison died recently and I mourned him as another of the greats who have passed this decade.

Those who know Riesling intimately, and drink it often, can argue that the top Rieslings are some of the greatest white wines in the world. It is interesting to think about its greatness in comparison to another top white variety – Chardonnay. Chardonnay is a chameleon, having a great affinity for expressing winemaking techniques and terroir whi... Read More
Okay, in additon to picking up a case of Barolo/Barbaresco via trade from JD back in April, I've been stocking up on bits and pieces of things. I bought 4 bottles of old vintage Beaulieu from K&L for $30 per, a pair of 1990 and a pair of 1996. One 1990 went down the drain, one sits in the cellar waiting to see if it suffered the same fate whil... Read More
I bought this bottle of wine from the website www.confitdirect.co.uk for £16.Jurancon is an appellation created in 1936 for both dry [sec] and sweet white wines from 25 communes around the village of that name. This is located a couple of miles south of the town of Pau in the foothills of the Pyrenes mountains 30 miles north of the Spanish borde... Read More
I bought this bottle of wine from a shop in London's Kensington [www.nicolas.co.uk] for £16. Saint Mont got appellation status in 2011 for red,white and rose wines from 46 communes around the medieval Benedictine Abbey which once featured on the pilgrim route to Spain and where the vineyard is still in operation.Saint Mont is located 25 miles no...

I've been enjoying this '07 Copain Brosseau Syrah for the past few nights waiting for it to open up. The palate has come around but the nose is shy roasted meat, soy and violets. It packs dark black fruit into the palate in a lean shell followed by chalk and fairly tart (some would think too tart) finish. Maybe I'll check on my next bottle aroun... Read More
I'm about to buy this cooler: Koldfront 24 Bottle Free Standing Dual Zone Wine CoolerDoes anybody have any thoughts on it? The review on winecoolers.reviews says it's good, but have any of you come across this machine before? By the way, that car is a beauty :) Read More
What you really need to look for, Greg, is that version of champers called 'blanc de noirs'. You probably haven't heard of it, but in addition to the fizz it's got some ingredients you're sure to like! ;-)Have always wondered why Sekt never gets mention here or most anywhere else. Probably because it gets snapped up internally in Germany, and d... Read More
It was never my favorite style of wine but I do appreciate it from time to time. My wife and I actually split a bottle recently - first ever in over 25 years.But you can find some pretty good stuff around. It's one of CA's best values actually - when we've done blind tastings putting six CA versions vs six Champagnes, the CA's usually come out o... Read More
I bought this bottle of wine from a shop in London's Kensington [www.thesampler.co.uk]. Gaillac is an appellation created in 1938,although viticulture in the area goes back to at least the Romans,for red,rose,white and sparkling wines from 50 communes around the small town of that name some 30 miles north-east of Toulouse in the Tarn valley.Ther...
