  • Bodegas Abanico Rua Valdeorras 2010

    Snoothrank:

    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

  • Aveleda Vinho Branco 2013

    Snoothrank:

    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

  • Red Knot Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

    Snoothrank:

    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

  • Red Knot Cabernet Sauvignon Mclaren Vale Australia 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Purchased at Trigg's Cellar 70. This was really good for the price point.

  • Andrew Murray Esperance Curtis Vineyard 2012

    Snoothrank:

    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 tannins and balanced acidity give nice lingering aftertaste. Well done - drink now - Paul 89 ... Read More

  • Can't take 'em with me when I go, right?That's exactly why my annual goal is to drink more than I buy.  I'm not doing very good in 2016--120 bottles consumed, 133 bottles purchased.  I guess I'd better get in gear.   Quivet e-mail coming up is not going to help.Looks like a lot of fun, OT.  I truly hope to make one of your OVZ events, sometime.I...

  • Utter, unmitigated rubbish, not to put too fine a point on it.Chablis has been a hotbed of oak vs steel controversy for three decades now (notice that's only the tip of the iceberg in historical terms for the region--before that, plenty of oak). Major figures lead the attack from both sides of the divide, trying to make names for themselves. At ... Read More
