|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....
|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,...

Well, we really got a lot of feedback from you Francophiles out there after last week’s Italo-centric email. Okay! UNCLE. I relent! This week, I’ll take a look at some of the greatest deals on the planet for age-worthy wines from France, and as a double bonus, next week’s email will be a special split featuring wines from France, as well as a f...

What do you drink when you're not drinking wine? We've posed this question to winemakers and wine lovers, wine directors and store owners -- and the answer always arrives with a bit of a crooked smile. The vintners love beer, the retailers tell stories of ghostly green absinthe, of vodka made in airplane hangars. And our readers, well: Our read... Read More
Hi all!!! I want to buy four bottles of red that are not blends. I want a cab that is a classic cab. One that really pops in mind when you think of what a classic one is. I need the same for Merlot, Pinot and Syrah. I am going to perform my own blind tasting experiment to really nail down the nuances of each and differences between them.Oh ... Read More
We got started last time with a short list of cellarable wine values for the cellar. I only touched on Portugal and Spain, but judging from the response it looks like we’re going to have to dig a bit deeper to satisfy every palate out there. This week we return to the regions that are nearest and dearest to my heart: The great wine-producing va... Read More
You know people love to say that the world is getting smaller, and I ... ... Freixenet has been producing classic wines using the traditional méthode champenoise techniques (we’re talking at least 3 years from vine to bottle for all the wines) since 1861. Their classic wines, with familiar labels, continue to deliver exceptional value. For tho... Read More
Everything classic about big Russian River Zin is evident in this bottle. The whopping 16.3% alcohol is well integrated with gobs of black and boysenberry fruit, pepper and spice linger on the finish and the mouthfeel is full and weighty with the special finish that you only find in great wines. The 2006 seems to be more represented in the marke... Read More
The unfortunate thing, is that I seem to have lost some of my notes. I suppose that happens with wine consumption. Anyway, we began the day with a drive through St. Helena up the mountain to Pride Mountain Vineyards, as my friend had arranged another tasting for us. We were greeted with a small pour of the chardonnay and once our group was com... Read More
A friend who worked in Napa for five years was planning a trip to catch the tail end of the Carneros festival and given his knowledge of my love for wine and his many connections, I thought 7 months since I was out there was enough. I jumped at the chance to go back and experience a new set of wines and wineries.He had some issues come up that ... Read More
I was just posting a reply about labels and thought hmmm? If I were a wine what kind of label would I have? What would my name be? What kind (red of course!)?Send in your ideas about what you would be!!! This should be FUN!I guess I better start. I am very earthy and would like to have flowers, daisies, and probably throw in a peace symbol for ... Read More
Which wine should one drink with grapes?I once asked that question and got the following reply......"You cannot drink any wine with grapes, that would be incest." Read More
