|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...

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 ...

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

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.

Definitely one of the better ones from Tesco. Bold dark cherryness throughout, so easy to drink. Beautiful.
|Region:||Argentina » Mendoza » Valle de Uco » La Consulta|
Smooth, easy to drink, moderate nose. Berries, cherries, some plums. Not sophisticated, but pleasing - better than, or as good as, other malbecs that cost 3-4 USD more, which is an additional recommendation.
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...

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.

I've taken the liberty of posting a portion of Kermit Lynch's most recent newsletter. It's a piece Jim Harrison wrote for them nearly a decade ago on wine's significance in his life, and there are several specific examples of food and wine matching.Harrison died recently and I mourned him as another of the greats who have passed this decade. Lot... Read More
Those who know Riesling intimately, and drink it often, can argue that the top Rieslings are some of the greatest white wines in the world. It is interesting to think about its greatness in comparison to another top white variety – Chardonnay. Chardonnay is a chameleon, having a great affinity for expressing winemaking techniques and terroir whi... Read More

Fox, Germans drink tons of Sekt and other sparklers, too. Would possibly put up a good showing against beer. Too lazy and busy to go chase down stats right now but they shouldn't be that hard to find.And there are definitely good bottles of Sekt out there. Can't answer for what's making it through the vicissitudes of the US markets now, but they... Read More
Have started to see the appeal in Champagne and other quality sparkling wine more and more lately. It's a festive drink with high drinkability and pleasure, provided you are drinking within the wine's general drinking window. I can remember my eldery godmother saying on one of our visits that she couldn't drink wine anymore due to her stomach is... Read More
VV-Great pic! RBA and I like them young, but one difference is one was French ... experience Argentina wines drink better young then French.)OT-I have a couple of the Rivers-Marie PN's, sounds tasty, should I hold off a bit on popping one? Yesterday we celebrated my wife's birthday with a 2011 Scarlett Cab! Goes to show that a great wine maker... Read More
I drink much better when guests are visiting Pretty nondescript wine. Just the lightest hit of blueberry fruit on the tip of the tongue. A kinduva cinnamon thing going on at the back of the palate. Very light-bodied for a red. Nothing really offensive, though, and it is low-dollar (<$20). On the other hand, the dinner, tonight, is tuna sala... Read More
So Scutulatus--your name? I know it in zoology for part of the rattlesnake's name, and in Latin as an adjective for lozenge-shaped or checkered, but I'm not fluent in either. Why your choice?Regarding your madiran, that is often an issue with those made more oldskool, and a major reason why the wine was pushed aside by most consumers until paean... Read More
I find my 1995 Madiran a bit dry/tart for my taste and am considering blending the remaining four bottles with a Cabernet. Any objections? Suggestions? March 25, 2016 Read More
