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...

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 wit...

Deep Yellow, Quite Intense, Fruity, Fragrant, Tasty, Full, well balanced...even if you can buy 2010 now it's better to drink Now 2009

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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 ...

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
MJET - Here's a list of wines that are currently out there (out of ... ... most drink well early, some drink better after a year or but all sit well for anywhere from 7-8 to 15-20. Here it is, by the way I went with a $25 - $50 range - I know you spent $75 on bottle you weren't sure about - but DMCKER, GREGT, OUTHERE and BIG AL have the ready ... Read More
Mjet - these days it's hard to think of a CA or WA Cab that will improve but that isn't very good out of the chute. That would include the entire Cab family - wines made as monovarietal bottlings or as blends of Merlot, Cab Franc, Cab Sauv, Malbec, Carmenere, etc. If you have a wine that's going to improve, it's likely to be pretty good on relea...

"I think to limit the conversation to just Cali cabs is to narrow."But that was the question posed by the OP." Now I'm really confused. Where in the OP was California specified?I think it's patently absurd to talk about 'Cab Sav' (the ultimate Americanization--where'd the 'u' go?) without reference to Bordeaux, and other New World sites. I also ... Read More
