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.

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.

Deep Yellow, Quite Intense, Fruity, Fragrant, Tasty, Full, well balanced...even if you can buy 2010 now it's better to drink Now 2009
|Winery:||Domaine Vincent Ricard|
|Region:||France » Loire » Touraine|
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...

|Region:||USA » California » Santa Barbara County » Santa Ynez Valley|
|Varietal:||Grenache , Mourvèdre , Syrah|
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 ...

|Region:||USA » California » San Luis Obispo County » Edna Valley|
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.

|Region:||Chile » Central Valley » Maipo Valley » Puente Alto|
Really lasted well and developed better than the more heralded '07. Blackberry and a tart choke cherry, with spice and chocolate on the nose lead to a plate that is somewhat dry with slightly chewy tannins and balanced aciditty. Drink now Paul 90 points
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...
|Region:||France » Burgundy » Chablis » Vaucoupin|
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...
|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Pauillac|
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 ...

This morning I was pontificating in the coffee shop about wine bottle labeling. My buddy, being the the ex-lawyer type, asked a lawyer question. Who monitors this stuff?I then realized that I had never heard of anybody (OK, I'm talking domestically, here.) being accused of say:Labeling a bottle as "Cabernet Sauvignon" and, then, being caught f...

Any good pinot is better 5 years later so the saying goes...and this example proves it. It was was very timid at first, but with time the fruit emerged and brought with it a great spice fruit. Red berry fruit - mostly cherries and raspberry - leads the way with crisp acidity and slightly chewy tannins lead to a mouthwatering finish. Drink now - ... Read More

Hey! I'm in for the offline meetup. Cyclocross season starts in September and runs through December. I'm not too serious about my racing these days. So, I could probably skip a race to drink some wine with friends! :-)Oh yeah. That is what I did today. I met up with DVogler at a race we both decided not to do. DV had a better excuse than m...

Hello All,I am hosting a baby shower for my sister. It will be all women. I am not much of a drinker myself and would like some input. I will be giving out 7 prizes throughout Brunch, and each prize will come with a bottle of wine or champaign. What would be a good prize? Also, since Im purchasing 7 of them, I'd like to keep it under $200.00. Th... Read More
I've been really bad about posting updates on the house. Structurally, we are finished, and all the walls are painted and floors finished. We have stairs, about to have our big Tansu thing in the middle of them, And we've got a dining room that seats twenty pretty easily. Maybe more. (Didn't OT say all that garden building was making him lose ... Read More
Hello I have some white wine that's 32 years old looks like vinger now should I keep it or chuck in the bin or can u use the wine in cooking and have a champagne mixer that's 30 years old do I keep that 2 or bin it Read More
Unique to say the least. Another, in what was a completely different night of wine tasting at the house. Cider vinegar right off the bad, not exacting the kind of intro that we'd thought, but different. After sitting and warming this develops a green herbal quality and a drop of honey that alone doesn't really set off any green lights, but with ... Read More
Well done wine. Crispness that gives this a coolness due to it's freshness. The varietals are new to me for this blend and that is what is so interesting about the wine world - there is so much to learn. Citrus and stone fruits are front and center with wonderful acidity and minerality that gives this a lingering mouth watering effort. Get this ... Read More
This was really good for the price point. Plenty of blackberry and Damson plum, wood, chocolate and chewy tannins combined with juicy acidity give a better than average everyday drinking experience - which is exactly what you could do at this price. Drink now - Paul 87 points Read More
