|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Saint-Julien|
|Varietal:||Cabernet Sauvignon , Sauvignon|
I underestimated this wine young, as it continues to put on weight and character. In fact, of the great vintages of Leoville-Las Cases, this is one of the more forward wines, largely because of the seamlessness of the 1990 and its exceptionally sweet ...
|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Pomerol|
I found this one currently at K & L wines for $29.99 Tight out of the bottle, nose of red fruits, spice, oak, with good acidity and tannins. After decanting for 2+ hours this wine really opened up, and started to show off its class and elegance. It ...
|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...
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Sonoma Coast|
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....
|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:||Produttori del Barbaresco|
|Region:||Italy » Piemonte » Barbaresco|
The Produttori Moccagatta was classic in every way, and having tasted it blind, was easily confused for being a Barolo. The nose started out muted, but with a short time in the glass, a bouquet of dried cherry, potpourri, menthol and dark, dark chocola...
|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:||Dry Creek Vineyard|
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Dry Creek Valley|
(Review of December 2009.) Superlative Napa Cabernet whose rich fruit and approachable texture make it delicious now, but whose beautiful balance and structure and grip suggest it will be good for years to come. Lots going on in this wine, from the de...
|Winery:||Knee Deep Wines|
|Region:||Australia » Western Australia|
|Varietal:||Chardonnay , Chenin Blanc , Sauvignon Blanc|
The perfect summer drink! Beautiful with seafood and out in the sunshine! We match it here with our seared abrolhos island scallops with curry salt, sweet corn veloute, creme fraiche and popped corn.

Barolo may be Italy’s most famous red but surprisingly it hails from a ... vanilla flavours to these classic wines. I didn’t realise at the time but the ‘Barolo Wars’ had begun. Things are changing but the war still rages, a Titanic battle between the Traditionalists and the Modernists. The former always have, and always will, age their wine... Read More

My wife bought a few wines today...her first such purchases in years (the last was a bad TJ's Rose, maybe I was too hard on her.) Best of the bunch was the classic Chateau Ste Michelle, 2014 in this case, so that what was had tonight. One of the more enjoyable wines I've had of late, and for 6.99Though I've always liked Riesling most while not f... Read More
Happy Easter, everyone.Today, I opened this:Firstly, bowing to Vin0Vin0 to give thanks for this wonderful bottle of wine. 2013 Esprit de Tablas Blanc was my Secret Santa present this year. I wanted to hold it longer, but Easter seemed a fitting time to open this gem, and I tend to live life in the present.I really enjoy trying to pick out the n... Read More

The Sancerre wine district is a small area which surrounds the Loire Valley in Central France. Sancerre wines are famous for their crisp, fragrant white wines made from the Sauvignon Blanc grape. The Clement et Florian Berthier Sancerre has the classic sharp Sauvignon Blanc initial aroma but little in the way of fragrance. It is vibrantly pep... Read More
That sounds great Miguel, I was tempted to order Delices and Gourmandises Bordeaux wines first but I wanted something richer and more complex then I chose the Gewürzt at last, I like the spiced peaches, lychees and rosewater flavours. However, I personally prefer to pair it with a classic Alsatian meal or chinese food than Indian one. Read More
I started a thread on WB recently, and not many folks agreed with my stance, though I suspect many more do agree that just don't say anything.Strictly speaking about Northern Hemisphere Wines, leaving the various barrel aging out of it for sake of discussion. Read More
You’ll know a glass of Bordeaux when you sniff it -- from the pencil shavings of Pauillac to the elderflowers of Pessac-Leognan. Bordeaux is synonymous quality; it’s a universal truth of the collective wine consciousness. But while quality is often associated with premium pricing, this doesn’t mean you can’t find a great bargain in Bordeaux. The... Read More
Anyone have any experience?I've noticed Kelley mentioned among the best company in Oregon Pinot, popular with Somm's and the like. Being a Burgundy lover, I've mostly found CA Pinot painful (though I've found a few I like!), and Oregon Pinot quite a bit more elegant, but sometimes or most of the time more boring rather than painful (as I find wi...
