|Winery:||Marques de Murrieta Ygay|
|Region:||Spain » Rioja|
Tasted on a duck breast with grilled vegetables. Aromas of roasted / chocolate of classic wines in the Rioja. Tannins well settled down with age. The finish is smooth without dryness. Show more fruit than the nose. Maturity: Drink now Okay now. The ev...
|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 ...
|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...
|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:||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! ...
|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 ...
|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,...
|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...
|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...

(Review of Dec. 2006.) I'm ashamed to say this is the first bottle I've tried of David Coffaro Zinfandel. It is outstanding, reminding me of some of the best Ridge Lytton Springs Zins from the past - but at a cost at least $10 lower than those wines. Classic briary, fruit-laden Zinfandel nose, tremendous richess and balance in the flavors. Mout... Read More
I know there are a lot of educated wine drinkers on this website but I also think that there are many novices like myself on here trying to learn. There is soooo much good information on Snooth but much of it is too advanced for me, and others I'm sure. Basically, I am looking for an advanced wine drinker to give us some of the key essential fac... Read More

(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 deep, classic dark currant/cherry fruit to the chocolate, roasted herbs, coffee, and spice undern... Read More
JAN 2010 - enjoyed this 2006 wine for the first time last evening while eating at Teller's in Hyde Park. Full bodied, smokey, smooth, reminded me of my favorite classic French wines. No zingy wild fruit needing more years to mellow or pepper ... already mature and totally enjoyable. I'm buying more today. Read More
The Domaine de Montille is one of those wineries whose wines tend to polarize people. Their wines make no concessions to the immediately drinkable, lush, and rich wines that are favored by many critics these days. Instead the de Montilles continue to make wines that speak of their place and season. Traditions begun by the father, Hubert de Mont... Read More
The end of another year is upon us. I’m guessing many New Year’s eve plans are in the process of being made, and remade, and remade yet again. I learned long ago that the best plans for New Year’s eve was to have no plan. Keep your expectations low and you’re bound to exceed them! Freixenet seems to have discovered my secret. Their tagline this ... Read More
One of my favorite wines. Classic Tempranillo - leathery, rich, tannin. While this wine is drinkable now, it's still pretty tight, and I imagine it will age quite well. Decanting makes this wine much better. Balanced Read More
Orvieto is one of Italy’s grandest hilltop towns. It remains as a large and bustling testament to the long and important history these hubs of commerce played in the growth, and development, of the region. If anyone has any doubts as to the importance of Orvieto, and the wealth it once controlled, a stop by the Duomo is in order. This gothic Ca... Read More
‘Tis the season for sparkling wine, and I don’t hear anyone complaining. Ok, so I do hear some complaints: I’m hearing that there are just too many great sparkling wine choices, and people want help sorting through the billions of available bubbles. (With 49 million bubbles per bottle, I think I may be understating the situation here.) Any disc... Read More
