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...

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.
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...

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...

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.

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 ...

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.

|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Pauillac|
|Varietal:||Cabernet Sauvignon , Sauvignon|
This 2006 Pauillac was cellared prudently for 6 years, and appears to have peaked. The colour has become brick red, with a scent redolent of cranberry, blackberry confit and a hint of spicy cedar. On the palate, there is a bit of vanilla overlay and ...

Very nice VV. Wine certainly does taste better on holiday.Since Friday is sometimes considered part of the weekend, I'll go ahead and reveal what we did yesterday, the 3rd of June. We started off driving over to the Mosiac District again to pick up my glasses, and we figured that a wine tasting and then dinner were in order. We stopped by Sip... Read More
Mike did that with his own wines, which he tastes every day. I imagine he could do it with some others as well. And I can imagine that GregT can do that with Riojas because he tastes a lot of them, does so frequently, and pays a lot of attention to them. But there's a real limit to human perception. Note that GregT cannot do the same with tho... Read More
Gosh, you're right!!!I guess I just have to dump those Halcons that I have. Obviously, the are counterfeit.I know. I'll give them to my brother. He'll drink anything. Even better, I'll sell them to him. BWAH HA HAH. Read More
But Greg, I thought you were secretly carrying a torch for Alice?OT, nice transplant of that Meredith quote over here. Still want to know how Matthews chooses to drink what wines, though. ;-)Off on a slight tangent, looks like the Chinese were importing beer brewing technology from western Asia 5,000 years ago. Wonder in those days how the chip... Read More
This book looks enticing but was looking for feedback from anyone who may have read it. Thanks Read More
EM - We can't possibly love every wine we drink. Just be happy that most of the wine tastes good and we enjoy it. How do you keep records of wines you like and don't like? I doubt anyone has a good enough memory to remember all the bottles / vintages that either stood out or were something to be avoided in the future.A few nights ago we enjoy... Read More

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
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 Read More
