Nice blend of around 50% Cab, Merlot, and a handful of other bordeaux varietals. This wine can taste a little disjointed with oak and acidity, but it has a great core of fruit that wins out, making it a nice drink at a reasonable price. Coming from a...

A great wine, full of taste and with aromas of cream, plum, raspberry and a hint of chocolate, raisins, spicy nose and vanilla it has also some kinda aroma of dulce de leche... As the winery said it has huge potential for aging, which is pretty good be...

Definitely one of the better ones from Tesco. Bold dark cherryness throughout, so easy to drink. Beautiful.

I love Chablis in 2006.Like a woman not disguised, they reveal in this vintage the beauty of this Chardonnay. And they get better with age. If you do not know what is the minerality of Chablis, a sip of this wine will give you the definition. Tasting d...

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.

Consistent in vintage to vintage. Inky dark juice in the glass, blackberry, bosenberry, oak, tongue coating tannins, chocolate and good acidity puts this above it's price points. Full and smooth, I've found that this is better with a couple of years in...

My last vintage was the 2010 and I liked it very much, this - better. I like fuller bodied wines and this fit the bill nicely. Plenty of blueberry, violets, pepper on the nose, leading to notes of vanilla, earth and spice on the palate. Medium chewy ...

Deep Yellow, Quite Intense, Fruity, Fragrant, Tasty, Full, well balanced...even if you can buy 2010 now it's better to drink Now 2009

Very perfumed with lots of hints of vanilla, caramel, wood, and cacao. On the palate, green peppercorn, lots of ripe berries, cherry and black plums, with a soft hint of vanilla, and a bit of caramel. It was delicious to drink by it self, probably ev...

Here's an interesting queston to ponder,How can one teach themselves the various flavors wines give off to the palate?The other day, I opened a Merlot, the Winery said it has tastes of Blackberry, plum and smoked meat.I drank, savored, thought and I tasted the Blackberry, I think I tasted the plum but was I swayed by the label description? Dunn... Read More
Ok, so I've just ordered a crate of the new Rimon pomegranate wine from Israel! Details here: http://www.rimonwinery.co.uk/rimon_winery.html#drywine.Apparently it's "an elegant wine with a beautiful deep reddish-purple colour and a unique bouquet of rich pomegranate and floral aromas. It has flavours of cherries with a faint hint of black pepper... Read More
I ran across something called Chocovino...dutch chocolate with red wine. Familiar to anyone? Read More
It seams I recall someone commenting on the 07 vintage in bordeaux being a really outstanding year. Was going to try and spread my wings a bit into French wines. Can anybody confirm. Read More
I had a bottle of the '75 Lanessan last night from a case I bought on initial release. At 35 years old, it has amazing life and depth of flavor. Still quite dark and with tannin yet to lose, it blossomed in the glass after about half an hour. The '75s were notoriously hard, but this one has rewarded my patience and should get even better in a... Read More
I'd appreciate any thoughts on a good pairing for a Tokali Aszu (5 putts) pairing for a tasting. I'm new here so thanks in advance for any thoughts. Read More
Delicious, jammy, drink lots of me now & it won't "break the bank". Great everyday table wine. First purchased a month ago for $7 but got it on sale this week for $5.99 at CVS/Long's Honolulu. Cabernet is much better than the blend/table wine. Read More
The most important weapon in every wine drinker’s arsenal is, not surprisingly, decent stemware. By decent I don’t mean fancy, just a nicely shaped all-purpose bowl that holds at least 10 ounces. I use both Bordeaux and Burgundy stems, pictured below, but the Bordeaux bowl is probably best if you’re only going to buy one type. By the way, I dr... Read More
Tastes like cheap table wine, which is actually better than I expected. There are no detectable nuances in the mouth. I picked this up for my blog as an example of something bad - but I'm almost mildly impresed. Just like merlot should be - easy to drink. Still, it's really nothing special.MORE at http://redsfortherestofus.blogspot.com Read More
Hello all --We've just put up Snooth's Guide to Wine Glasses (the latest in our new series of guide pages), and it's got me wondering: how many people out there use just one sort of all-purpose wine glass, and how many have full stemware collections? How closely do you match the type of wine to the type of glass when drinking at home? Read More
