Winemaker labeled it as a semi sweet wine, but when you drink it, you feel like it was sweet. The taste lasts for a long time. You could drink it without any meal, but it is much better with fish. This is one of my favorite vines.

Smooth, easy to drink, moderate nose. Berries, cherries, some plums. Not sophisticated, but pleasing - better than, or as good as, other malbecs that cost 3-4 USD more, which is an additional recommendation.

Better grab this one while you can. For $17.99 at Costco, this Stag Leap District Cab is phenomenal for the price. Full bodied and ready to drink even though it is 2006, perfect tannins, long finish. Decant for one hour to really open it up. This i...

Sauvignon of Touraine for the better or without the worse. This is the wine that made me excited about the wines of Vincent Ricard. No, it is not vegish, no, it's not cat pee. This mineral is: you can feel the grain on the tongue. And fruit! Discreet...

very sweet and crisp. bordering on dessert wine. it has a distinct nutty arugula quality which I really like. drink this cold. the colder the better.
|Region:||New Zealand » Marlborough|
Definitely one of the better ones from Tesco. Bold dark cherryness throughout, so easy to drink. Beautiful.
Big almond and lemon verbena aromas greet the nose with hints of lemongrass and quartz adding complexity. This opens with fine acidity supporting flavors that have a subtle meaty edge to them little. Texturally this is bright, clear and moderately ten...

We drank this celebrating the Holidays with Lou, Pete, Rich, and Jim. An impressive sparkling wine at this price point; all the better to buy and drink more for special occasions! In terms of tasting notes, the others have summed it up well.

At first was only 3 stars, but improved after 15 minutes in the glass. Nose had cedar, cherry and olives. Viscous and chalky in mouth, with notes of pepper. Finish was maybe a little too tight. This wine may drink better next year.

I personally think this is the best wine on the market. I used to drink red wine and a friend gave me a glass of this two years ago and It's all I drink now. Call me crazy, but I think it's better than any I've ever tasted. Read More
Hey I was wondering if there were any wine drinkers out there in Poland?I've been given a marketing project to do about the growing wine market there, which I thought sounded fun at first but is turning into a bit of a nightmare given the fact I don't speak Polish!A general discussion is fine but I've also got a list of 15 (very) short questions...

I've found myself recently heading for much more acidic reds -- mainly Italian. Probably to do with the fact that my Significant Other has been demanding I make gnocchi about twice a week. There's got to be a bite with that much starch. With whites I've loved Rhône-style things for years, and southern French wines -- Marsanne/Roussane-based thin... Read More
Uluvka vodka was for a long time something of an enigma here at the Vodka Emporium. Is it just a gimmick, is it of decent quality, does is it give you good value for money?Well we thought it was about time we did some serious investigation into this vodka that has something of a growing following in the UK.There is no shying away that the majori...

I am not a mathematician but I wonder if there is a formula to obtain a value rate using price and scores (100/100). I.e. Wine A costs $20 and gets a score of 90 points and Wine B costs $45 and gets a score of 90 points as well; is there a formula that can tell me (mathematically) that the value of Wine A is higher?I am sure one of you may have ...

Hello everyone, I have a 1994 Monticello Gran Reserve Rioja that I am looking to crack open soon. And since it is one of the older wines if not the oldest I have had to date, I was curious as to what everyone would consider the optimal air time in the decanter would be. Thank you. btw, I couldn't find this wine in the search engine, but here ... Read More
Any help would be appreciated here.I have a buddy that's really into cigars and I've been partaking from time to time. It's been fun but I've never tried to put a wine in front of someone smoking a cigar. Now that everyone knows I'm the "Wine Guy" I've been asked to supply next weeks smoking event with some wines. YIKES.I don't know where to s... Read More
Hello all,I recently got a very sweet present from my father. He informed me that he has been saving 8 cases of Sonoma and Napa Cabs from the year of my birth, 1974:Sterling Vineyards Napa Cab. Sauv.

We drink lots of Sauv Blanc here in Scottsdale, AZ in the summer to help make the heat more tolerable. This Grove Mill 2007 is every bit as good or better than Kim Crawford or Cloudy Bay and was found at Costco for only $9.99!Dashwood is good at $7.99 but this is worth $2 bucks or even $10. more!Mike Read More
So a good cousin of mine stumbled upon a little cellar of wine in her new place. Lucky her! And there were a few little gems, including this one: Banfi Rosa Regal 2002.Clearly from the classic Banfi winery I associate with for Brunello, but I've never seen nor heard of this type of wine. Anyone want to shed some light on this mystery? Have any o... Read More
