I suppose you want to know about me. Well, I'm Debra, the proud owner of the site. I started off in the restaurant business in Chicago, and have been in the wine business for years. I've had the good fortune of traveling to many of the worlds wine areas, and am proud to bring you great wines from all over the world. I carry well known labels as well as wines that you will not find in stores. This means some wines are exclusive and will not be sold in large quantities. Some of our wines are made by producers that I have personal ties with, and they have agreed to private label wines and sell them only in the US. I will take good care of you and your order. We do not have a conveyor belt operation where you will be a 1-time order and lost in the shuffle. We may call you when we run low on your wine- so that you can re-order when we have the wine in stock! Though we continually monitor inventory to ensure product availability, there are times when products may be out of stock. If that occurs, we will email Read more »

  • VV-Great pic! RBA and I like them young, but one difference is one was French and the other was from Argentina. (From my limited experience Argentina wines drink better young then French.)OT-I have a couple of the Rivers-Marie PN's, sounds tasty, should I hold off a bit on popping one? Yesterday we celebrated my wife's birthday with a 2011 Scarl...

  • I drink much better when guests are visiting Pretty nondescript wine.  Just the lightest hit of blueberry fruit on the tip of the tongue.  A kinduva cinnamon thing going on at the back of the palate.  Very light-bodied for a red.  Nothing really offensive, though, and it is low-dollar (<$20).  On the other hand, the dinner, tonight, is tuna sala...

  • So Scutulatus--your name? I know it in zoology for part of the rattlesnake's name, and in Latin as an adjective for lozenge-shaped or checkered, but I'm not fluent in either. Why your choice?Regarding your madiran, that is often an issue with those made more oldskool, and a major reason why the wine was pushed aside by most consumers until paean... Read More

  • I find my 1995 Madiran a bit dry/tart for my taste and am considering blending the remaining four bottles with a Cabernet.  Any objections?  Suggestions?  March 25, 2016  Read More

  • When you think of drinking wine at the appropriate age, what picture comes to mind? Usually it is a red wine. Maybe a decanter is involved? It’s a special occasion or with friends and family. However, not all wine is designed to age a long time. I have heard so many stories of people saving a bottle of wine that they were given as a gift only to... Read More

  • Checking my notes I realized that I have had the 2006 Reserva as well in 2012 and in 2014. On both occasions I was pretty happy with the wine... Anyway I am very sure that the weird bitter finish that I got on the 2013 had nothing to do with its youth. I have had plenty of Reservas and Gran Reservas that were not ready to drink yet, but its not ... Read More

  • I am drinking a 2013 Porca de Murca, Douro Reserva from Portugal. The wine seems to be fine, clear sight, clean fruity nose, in the beginning its fine on the palate (maybe a lack of fruit compared to the nose)... everything but the finish. It has a weird bitter finish, very unpleasant. Its not the tart taste of tannins (even so it is pretty high... Read More

  • 2007 in Burgundy has been considered all this decade, to the extent stock still exists, a 'restaurant wine' (ever notice how you almost never see the best vintages on restaurant wine lists? That's a very specific, well-maintained market niche). All that maquillage helps it drink better earlier so it can be placed quickly before nearby vintages c... 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

  • As I mentioned in various posts, I had a good time helping some friends plan their wedding wines recently. I was trying to be sensitive to price for the most part, but it came as little surprise that the wines pushing $30 outperformed the other two at around $15, however have to say the Dog Point Sauv Blanc was plenty serviceable for that price!...
