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...

This is my desert island wine. If I could drink this for the rest of my life I would not be upset. Controlled bomb o'fruit. Perfect for the first snowy night of this winter as it really warms the soul. Paired it with kung pao marinated skirt steak. Co...

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 ...

These wines always are better after laying down for a year or two...this is no exception. It has fleshed out, the plum and blueberry notes are fuller and the peppery notes and spice ride to a medium tannic finish accompanied by driving acidity. 89 po...

Better now that it sat for a few months. The fruit is lovely and enticing - mostly lush red berry with dark cherry nuances, deep seated wood, forest floor, herbal notes and mocha. Deep filling aftertaste. Drink now - Paul 89 points

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.

Somewhat "closed" after initial pour. Never really opened up the first evening. Day two was much better with layers of fruit and tannins well integrated. My feeling though is that you can get wines this good that are a better value, and ready to drink ...

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.

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

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.

Really very good - may be NOT 95 points good but better than 90 for sure. Violets, blueberries, purple garden florals give way to dark berry fruits, spice, dark cherry tannins and good acidity - find it buy it drink it. 91 points - drink now - Paul Read More
Wonderful and even better because of the price point. A little vanillin from the oak, sice also. Citrus fruit and a slightly creamy finish combined with an acidic burst give a great mouth feel. Drink now - 89 points - Paul Read More
I think JD is correct when you talk about Cab Sauv. Best is from Napa and you pay. But look at Washington. Andrew Will, Pepper Bridge, Woodward Canyon, and Betz are a few to start with. Andrew Will is a great wine for people who like classic Bordeaux.The mass-market Chateau St. Michelle Cab or Merlot is actually pretty decent for what you pay. A... Read More
Despite my somewhat feeble attempts trying to find US wine in Australia is frustratingSo I think I would like to build a list of high Quality but not astronomic priced wines my American Snooth Colleagues would suggest I look out forBare in mind that if it is from a very small niche producer I would need to know how I can source it in AustraliaSo...

Bonus Day - Oakland After dropping off the rest or our gang at the airport, the CFO and I decided to extend our vacation by a day and check out the Oakland/Berkely area. Hey we're out here, might as well make the most of it. After checking into our hotel by the marina and grabbing a nice brunch of shrimp tacos we went stomping around the Berkel... Read More
The CFO and I and four others are back in CA doing a weeks worth of tasting. Today is the Sonoma Barrel tasting to be followed by a couple more days in Sonoma and two days in Napa. Reports to follow. Read More
That does Rhone style reds at this price is good...that they are at a consistently high level is even better. this is big and bold, blueberries, sweetish dark cherry tannins, some cigar box, violets - yumm. 91 points - drink now - Paul Read More
We flew out west in early March (04 March 2017) to continue our annual wine tasting / visiting trips with relatives and friends. The hotels and other places to stay were all set, but the wineries on the visit list were not totally determined in advance. We planned two days of tasting in the Willamette Valley (McMinnville, Oregon) and two days ... Read More
Some notes I threw together quickly for JD on his trip. Might as well share them: Rajistahn ideas:Jodhpur—fort and old town (Brahmin blue), Mehrangahr—all in guidebooks; I always used to send home jodhpur riding pants from there to horsey friends of mine as tongue-in-cheek gifts; lots of shopping but 90% tourist junk these days from what I hear;...

I like a good vintage port over a tawny or brandy fortified port, it just seems to taste a little bit better - not as sweet as you get from the brandy fortified ones Read More
