  • Bodega Septima Red Blend 2005

    Snoothrank:

    There I was in the Parilla Pena, my favorite grill in BA, with three friends, when I discovered Septimo Dia. Parilla Pena (pronounced Pen-ya) is a legendary lunch favorite for Portenos who are lawyers, judges and businessmen, cause the courts are close by. It is special, amazing and not a tourist trap. Every November and December I go and rent a... Read More

    Wine review by Mr Malbec


  • In 1976, Amerine and Roessler ( U.C. Davis professors) counseled tasters to avoid emotive and anthropomorphic terms such big, finesse, hard, intense, lingering, long, rich, silky and velvety.  They stated in their book "Wines, Their Sensory Evaluation" that these words should be avoided at all costs.  How does the forum feel of this?

  • I've just returned from the International Malbec Days in Cahors, a festival meant to elevate the profile of "original" Malbec, and offer insight into the relationship between old world and new world expressions of the varietal.I'll be writing more about both the trip and the region, but for now, I wanted to offer highlights. I had limited exposu... Read More

  • I can't believe people still compare Bordeaux to California Cabernet Sauvignon.  I know it's patriotic to like California Cabs better than those frog wines across the pond, but doesn't it make more sense to compare left bank versus right bank Bordeaux, or Napa Valley Cabs versus Sonoma Cabs.  Should we believe that when we open a Cabernet from A...

  • I experimented with some lamb loin this evening and need some input. I pan seared and oven roasted the loin rubbed with fresh rosemary, thyme, oregano salt pepper and olive oil. I served it with a risotto that I made with broth & red wine and then some fresh mint in the final minute of cooking. The dish tasted good but was screaming for a couple... Read More

  • I asked in another thread about recommendation for the Okanagan Valley area of British Columbia, but now I'm asking for up-to-date stories about an area closer to (my) home. I have a family gathering in The Ojai/Santa Barbara area next month, and was wondering who has recommendations about particularly good wines and winery visits in that area t... Read More

  • Would definitely be interested in hearing what people think are the best wineries, and wines, in the Okanagan. Hopefully with an explanation why. Have a good friend going for an extended stay, based in Kelowna, in a month or so, and it'd be nice to be able to offer some pointers. She and her husband drink a lot of New Zealand sauvignon blanc,... Read More

  • I went on a tour of Sokol Blosser which was given complimentary and by a tour guide who was so amazing and inspirational.  I saw a couple of lady bugs on the vine and by some cursed desire, I unfortunately googled lady bug + vineyards to see if they eat predator bugs.  I found numerous articles on lady bugs getting crushed into wine and tainting...

  • I grew up on a farm.  Farmers kill themselves to survive and we support each other by buying locally.  I am from CA and I have been drinking wine predominately from Napa, Sonoma and Carneros since I was 21.  The point is, when I am studying for this WSET exam and being told that the best expression of every premium wine is found in some AOC in F...
