  • So the Ruche went over pretty well. Served to some friends my wife and I had over. Loved the nose, and though I was disappointed at first it opened with some air, and became a nice and enjoyable.Throws a refreshing fragrance of fresh crannberry. Light to medium bodied on the palate, with a pleasant attack, showing more cranberry, and dark plum f... Read More

  • Planning to do some exploring into Italy's other wine varietals, those without the fanfare or popularity of Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Barbera, and Dolcetto, etc.First up is a Ruche with a few years bottle age by Montalbera, apparently a lighter wine that was traditionally brought out for special occassions...figure this should make for a nice aperti...

  • Torres Celeste Crianza Ribera del Duero 2011

    Snoothrank:

    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 Read More

    Wine review by rckr1951


  • Among the sparklers, Jacquesson's GVS beat out the Schramsberg BdN, though I like both wines. Good comparison since the Jacquesson was 55% PN and 45% chard. Not a version that they produce any more, to my knowledge. I really like that house and used to drink cases and cases of it last decade, including that vintage. Zero chaptalization, extended...

  • I got in the mix because I am a civil servant with 20+ years of seniority, so I have to use my vacation days before they over-accumulate.  I just took the day off, did some stuff around the house, and then went to Napa.  I couldn't keep going up to Forestville (I don't recall being invited, but maybe I was) in any case, but Napa is like a 45 min...

  • Grange is very good, without a doubt, and sometimes even worth the money. But it's hardly the be all and end all of syrah.I have to agree with this. No way am I disparaging it, but when we've put it into blind tastings, it's frequently failed to live up to it's billing. In that way it's like Opus One in a sense - very good wine, even better repu... Read More

  • Had the good fortune to attend a Masters of Wine, Syrah Panel Tasting on Monday. I believe it was the last spot available for the seated tasting, consisting of 23 Syrah's from the main Syrah producing regions of the world. The tasting was held at the upstairs restaurant of the Wine House (famous retail shop and education facility) off of Cotner ... Read More

  • I'm starting this thread in order to drop a few notes and pics of the wine related portions of our Alsace trip. We're here with two other couples and although we have consumed a fair amount only a small portion of this trip is centered on wine. The first problem we encountered was the lack of rental cars due to the railway workers strike. We hir... Read More

  • Al, that could well be the start of the next big thing for you. I was looking at my own next moves in Barolo recently and noticed Total Wine has some solid producers, Pira (Vigna Rionda is their best) and I've noticed they also have Marcirini (Brunate is what they're famous for, also a famous vineyard in Barolo).For vintages, 2009 or 2011 may sh...

  • Okay, should be finishing up some things here, but just got an email from Mark Matthews, so I'm inspired to follow up here. At the end of the panel, which was moderated by an acquisitions editor from UC Press and consisted of Matthews and Sheridan Warrick, who just released the second edition of his book on home winemaking, the moderator asked h...
