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 ...

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.

Consistent in vintage to vintage. Inky dark juice in the glass, blackberry, bosenberry, oak, tongue coating tannins, chocolate and good acidity puts this above it's price points. Full and smooth, I've found that this is better with a couple of years in...

Better than expected with intense blackberry, butterscotch and vanilla giving way to a following palate. This rich and harmonious - the I've had by them - well done - drink now - 89 points - Paul

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...

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.

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.

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.

So what wine or other special beverage are you having tonight to celebrate the coming year? We have a nice 2010 Barnett wine open right now, serving this with a grilled steak shortly. Later tonight I'll open up a sparkling wine to ring in the New Year. Read More
I can't say I'm a Penfolds fan as the ones I've had were the bargain ones. The RWT had a nose like I've never smelled before. It was like a leather jacket with violets in the pocket and tar on the sleeves. So complex, but beautiful. I didn't want to drink it. I just kept smelling it for probably ten minutes. The Bella's Garden was great, b... Read More
"Why do people buy current release wines, mostly Cali cabs and Bordeaux, that are more expensive than properly mature bottles of the same wine?"Shhhhh, Greg. I like that I can find older bottles that someone else has cellared for me, from better vintages, for often far less than current offerings. Let's not spoil a good thing by letting the cat ...

Greg, you were right when you said it's tough to keep a forum going. Though this does seem to be an especially slow week all over the place...on the road, in business, etc. good to see people take some time out. Read More
We talked a lot about sparkling wine last week but there is a lot more to cover. The biggest sparkling wine day of the year, New Year's Eve, is right around the corner. Opening a bottle of sparkling wine can be a a dangerous proposition. There's a lot of pressure under that cork! But if you like living on the edge, there's always sabrage. When t... Read More
Made my first ever homemade sausage (venison) celebrated end of classes for the semester, ate said sausage with a nice glass of burgundy, now listening to Glen Gould Goldberg Variations (first recording). What would you be drinking? For me the choice was obvious. Read More
Had a rose from Bulgaria the other night - a 2013 DiVes Winery in the Thracian Valley to be exact. It was made from 50% Pamid, 30% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon.It opened precariously enough, there was an odd petrol/alcohol note, that burned off to a riesling rose pedal type of nose with a palate of cherry and strawberry followed by good a...

Okay, we're counting down to the end of the year. With three drinking weeks left, start nominating your wines of the year. And, if you like, nominate a wine experience of the year. I'm going to have to think about the WOTY for a while, and I'll update this OP as things occur to me, but I'm going to say it wasn't a year full of head turning win... Read More
+1 on Ive showing up! My luck with the St. Cosme brand hasn't been great, but he makes it sound trop bon.I think if you are buying Napa Cabs from Uppercut, Buehler, et al, you might also consider Alexander Valley Vineyards. In any case, I'm much preferring the 2013s to the '12s. But I can't buy a case of any of them, because somehow I can't d... Read More
