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...

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
|Region:||USA » California » Napa|
|Varietal:||Cabernet Sauvignon , Petit Verdot , Malbec , Cabernet Franc , Merlot|
Nice blend of around 50% Cab, Merlot, and a handful of other bordeaux varietals. This wine can taste a little disjointed with oak and acidity, but it has a great core of fruit that wins out, making it a nice drink at a reasonable price. Coming from a...

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.

Sweet toasty oak greets the nose followed by brambly fruit, along with notes of grilled meats, hickory nuts, cracked pepper, and sweet tangerine and nectarine fruits wrapped in vanilla. Smooth and polished with very fine acidity supporting assertive Zi...
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.

Thanks again, guys. You've been a huge help.EMark> are they five different botles?Nope. I don't get too many opportunities to buy top-shelf wine, so I almost always opt for variety. The other five are all different (though three are 2010 Gary Farrell pinot noirs, but from different vineyards). I'll probably open one of those this weekend as ... Read More
It's been a depressing spring for Britian's oneophiles. The United Kingdom's wine drinkers love a good glass of Sauvignon Blanc, not to mention a chilly sip of Italy's Prosecco. However, with rumors of shortages of both wines, tipple titans across the Kingdom are scrambling for solutions. “One of the UK's top tipples is in short supply after ... Read More
I assume the vendor saw the same relatively-cool forecast for the week that I did, and assumed it wouldn't take 7 days to deliver. For the record, the box declared the product "Fragile" and "Alcohol", but not perishable. If there were better delivery options that the vendor ignored (failed to offer, at least), I can't blame FedEx for the shipp... Read More
I'm a long-time lurker (and appreciator) of this forum, but this is my first post. Thanks, in advance, for your help, and for all of the other good advice I've found here in the past.LAST WEEKI got a fantastic deal on a 1995 bottle from what I believed (and still believe, I hope) to be a reputable online seller. Here are the photos that accomp... Read More
I usually drink brewed coffee every morning then small cup of tea after lunch and dinner. Tea is better than coffee as my most friends said to me because, it has less caffeine than coffee. Read More
This morning is the start of a busy day so I ground some medium-to-very-mildly-darker-roasted Kilimanjaro beans from Kenya (Tanzanian also can be good, Ethiopian different variety--love the acidity of these but especially with the full body and complexity such as also comes from a Sumatran Mandheling). Filter, as usual, including the ritual of p... Read More
Can't believe I missed this thread.

This past month marketing expert Marc Engel shared his perspective on the wine marketing arena in a post published on DTC Wine Workshops’ website. His advice and insights shed light on the complexities of the wine marketing world, while at the same time giving the average drinker a mirror in which to see their consumerish complexion. “Conducti...

JD - I agree. I wasn't going to buy the wine without a taste and this wine shop is all about doing the tastings.
