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...

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

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.

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.

Smooth, easy to drink, moderate nose. Berries, cherries, some plums. Not sophisticated, but pleasing - better than, or as good as, other malbecs that cost 3-4 USD more, which is an additional recommendation.

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...

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.

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...

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 ...

Quite the sea change in Bordeaux as prices seem a bit more affordable these days (as opposed to the 2009 bull rush just 5-6 years ago), and it appears they have a vintage that strikes the right balance between cool and warm. Not a too hot or too cold year that is, probably the first one like it since 2008.Eyeing Grand Puy Lacoste at $53/each, Du... Read More
OK, that Carlisle OVZ, last night, really inspired me. So, tonight it is a Bedrock OVZ. Yes, I agree. This will not be an apples-to-apples comparison. This on is vintage 2015, and the Carlisle was 2014. The Carlisle was "Russian River Valley," and this one is "California."Other than that, they are both labeled "Zinfandel." So, according to ...

We’re getting closer, I promise you, but today I just want to run through some of the pros and cons of different styles of glassware!After getting your wine out of the bottle (and perhaps into a decanter) at the proper temperature, serving it in the proper glass is probably the ...

As millennials come of age and begin exploring wine as a passion and a pastime, they are causing a tectonic shift in the wine business. The fundamentals of the business have been tacitly accepted by wine drinkers for decades -- the same varietals and regions have been favored vintage after vintage. Traditionally preferred grapes and regions are ... Read More

I don't know about that Fox but you're right, I was interested in the poster's version.RCKR - Bikavér is produced in both Eger and Szeksárd. Liszt, who was Hungarian, used to drink the Szeksárd version and there's a producer there now who is making a version in honor of Liszt. It's pretty good too. Egri just means from Eger. IMO, the Szeksárd ve... Read More
