one of the most amazing, complex, interesting wines I've had in a long time. maybe too full in weight for fans of classic pinot, but I loved it....
|Winery:||Fields Family Vineyards & Winery|
|Region:||USA » California » San Joaquin County » Lodi|
The wine is a lovely bright ruby color in the glass with nice clarity. The nose is classic Syrah, with a good bit of pepper, violet and that classic twang of tart cherry and fresh herbs. The taste is really quite nice, with a blast of tart cherry up ...
|Region:||USA » California » Napa County » Oakville|
In many ways a classic Napa Cab. If you don't like big wines, probably look elsewhere, forgetting about it for a couple of years also could help as well. Impressive Napa Cab, seems like it would be priced at more then $50 if it came with a different ...
|Region:||USA » California » El Dorado County|
|Varietal:||Cabernet Franc , Gamay|
This California take on a classic Loire Valley red is a very welcome surprise with only 13% alcohol and fresh, anise-inflected red cherry fruit. A vibrant, sassy, and feminine wine that uses subtlety to get noticed. Bebame means "drink me" in Spanish! ...
|Winery:||Mike Weir Estate Winery|
|Region:||Canada » Ontario » Niagara Peninsula » Niagara Peninsula Vqa|
Rich in colour and taste, this wine is perfectly crafted for palates who adore the classic toasty, buttery Chardonnay taste, with enough crisp acidity to cater to those who dislike overdone Chards. Although lacking its own unique character, this charmi...
|Winery:||Castello di Volpaia|
|Region:||Italy » Tuscany » Toscana Igt|
|Varietal:||Cabernet Sauvignon , Sangiovese|
One-third Cabernet Sauvignon, two thirds Sangiovese di Volpaia, a clone from the property. This offers up the classic scents of these Sangiovese/Cab blends yet even at this relatively high percentage of Cabernet it does not dominate the nose. There are...
|Region:||Ukraine » Crimea|
|Varietal:||Muscat Blanc À Petits Grains|
The White and Pink Muscats of Massandra are their classic wines and are considered by many to be the best Muscats in the world. Golden brown in color with intense flavors. Bright, hard and sugared fruit in center with a thin finish which is tight bu...
|Region:||Italy » Piedmont|
The 2006 Grimaldi Luigino Vigna San Biagio Barolo is of a more subtle style than other Barolos, so if you prefer more powerful, in your face wines, this one is probably not for you. The wine is lighter in color, with the classic brownish almondine tin...
|Winery:||Colle Dei Bardellini|
|Region:||Italy » Liguria » Riviera Ligure Di Ponente|
A touch rubbery on the nose, with a classic hint of pencil eraser that I associate with Pigato. Hints of herbs, and slightly smoked fruits, lemons and pineapple add some complexity to the nose. In the mouth, there is an earthy minerality under rather r...
|Winery:||Château de Fieuzal|
|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Graves » Pessac-Léognan|
Tasted February 2008: Expensive but superb wine with a top-notch bouquet (distinctive elder fruit and plums) and a slightly earthy, spicy taste and a delicious, dry and still oak-driven aftertaste. A classic Pessac-Léognan, ripe but not yet in decline,...

In 1991 the popularity of Zinfandel wasn’t a speck of what it is today. Wine lovers either didn’t know what it was or didn’t understand the grape. Therefore, in 1991, a passionate group of true believers formed ZAP, Zinfandel Advocates and Producers. This group is made up of winemakers and Zinfandel lovers alike. Their mission is to educate the ... Read More
OK, what's your favorite market in your area for buying good meats, dairy, produce, etc. when you want to prepare a proper meal, likely accompanied by wine? Or just for everyday living? And what do they provide that you value so?Last couple of times I was through San Fran I realized Bi-Rite in the Mission would be mine there. Very much appreciat... Read More
Thanks, that was pretty interesting. Even the perceived "baby killers" were pretty closely grouped with the rest. After drinking some 2011 Cali wines recently, I am thinking of going back and scavenging some. I think the cool conditions and careful selection of better makers will mean many of the wines are more classic than post-90s drink-ear... Read More
Celebrating our birthdays on the West Coast of Florida this week! These two bottles were excellent! The 2007 leaning towards old classic Napa and the Quivet to the new style. Not sure Mike Smith was the winemaker in 2007 for Scarlett. Great start to our week getaway! Oh, did I mention the weather??? Read More
Looking for some Barolo well past its dumb period, aged but still hale and hearty, ready to drink now? No danger of selling out before you click your order either... Burlotto + Cordero di MontezemoloIf you were buying wine from the 1960s – 1980s, primarily direct from the producer, and you had plenty of good cellar space, and enough money to spe... Read More
Single vineyard Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir are the order of the day at Willamette Valley’s acclaimed WillaKenzie Estate. Erik joined the Willakenzie team earlier this year to head up winemaking operations. Enjoy these excerpts from my conversation with Erik.MA: Tell me a little bit about your winemaking history. How did you become a winemaker? E... Read More
Riesling could be eclipsing Chardonnay as a go-to white wine grape for wine drinkers. My definition of wine drinkers here includes folks who don’t drink wine on a regular basis, but know a few grapes by name when ordering at a restaurant or picking up a bottle for a special occasion. This says a whole lot about Riesling. Many perfectly fine indi... Read More
I think JD is correct when you talk about Cab Sauv. Best is from Napa and you pay. But look at Washington. Andrew Will, Pepper Bridge, Woodward Canyon, and Betz are a few to start with. Andrew Will is a great wine for people who like classic Bordeaux.The mass-market Chateau St. Michelle Cab or Merlot is actually pretty decent for what you pay. A... Read More
Despite my somewhat feeble attempts trying to find US wine in Australia is frustratingSo I think I would like to build a list of high Quality but not astronomic priced wines my American Snooth Colleagues would suggest I look out forBare in mind that if it is from a very small niche producer I would need to know how I can source it in AustraliaSo...

Sorry but I didn't get any shots of the Bedrock wines.This Ramey was tasty. Lots of citrus, nice acidity, not real crisp. The Mondavi took a little bit to unwind and was still evolving when the last taste was poured. 2003 has been touted as a poor Napa vintage and this is yet anotger example that people just need to be patient with some years. I... Read More
