  • When you think of drinking wine at the appropriate age, what picture comes to mind? Usually it is a red wine. Maybe a decanter is involved? It’s a special occasion or with friends and family. However, not all wine is designed to age a long time. I have heard so many stories of people saving a bottle of wine that they were given as a gift only to... Read More

    From the article To Age or Not to Age? That is the Question.

  • Checking my notes I realized that I have had the 2006 Reserva as well in 2012 and in 2014. On both occasions I was pretty happy with the wine... Anyway I am very sure that the weird bitter finish that I got on the 2013 had nothing to do with its youth. I have had plenty of Reservas and Gran Reservas that were not ready to drink yet, but its not ... Read More

  • I am drinking a 2013 Porca de Murca, Douro Reserva from Portugal. The wine seems to be fine, clear sight, clean fruity nose, in the beginning its fine on the palate (maybe a lack of fruit compared to the nose)... everything but the finish. It has a weird bitter finish, very unpleasant. Its not the tart taste of tannins (even so it is pretty high... Read More

  • 2007 in Burgundy has been considered all this decade, to the extent stock still ... All that maquillage helps it drink better earlier so it can be placed quickly before nearby vintages come into their drinking windows. As with wine anywhere, better winemakers turn out better product, but even the better ones in 2007 Burgundies are weak sisters,... Read More

  • I started a thread on WB recently, and not many folks agreed with my stance, though I suspect many more do agree that just don't say anything.Strictly speaking about Northern Hemisphere Wines, leaving the various barrel aging out of it for sake of discussion. Read More

  • As I mentioned in various posts, I had a good time helping some friends plan their wedding wines recently. I was trying to be sensitive to price for the most part, but it came as little surprise that the wines pushing $30 outperformed the other two at around $15, however have to say the Dog Point Sauv Blanc was plenty serviceable for that price!...

    Wine review by EMark

  • Hey, Al, in the "Weekend wines" thread you commented that the Nickel & Nickel wine that I had over the weekend was well regarded by critics and at about $100 was a pretty spendy wine.  I think I spent closer to $70 for mine.I am of the opinion that the price of wines can be correlated to the quality.  However, that correlation is definitely 1.0....

  • Thank you Richard, great advise.. I will probably skip the coast region on this trip (Muscadet), already lots of driving and enough to do and drink in centre and eastern Loire. I am in France almost every year lately as my mother lives in Germany half an hour from the french border (and 20 minutes from the Mosel!!). So there will be another poss... Read More
