This is a difficult call: the wine has all the markings of a fine Champagne with excellent effervescence (lengthy and continuous, I mean), brioche nose and buttered toast on both palate and olfactory bulb(s). I acquired this wine at a considerable dis...

Bodegas Frutos Villar, Toro, "Muruve", Crianza, 2006 Production background: 12 months oak, 12 months in bottle. 100% Tempranillo, Toro region, Spain. I gave it "4 stars" over there for its value in particular, along with an overall, "Parker-esque" r...

I know what you're thinking: A rose port? But this little gem will change the way you think about fortified wines. This lovely pink port wine is amazing is suprisingly fresh. It has a fruity, floral aroma, a silky texture, and tastes of cherry & raspb...

What a pleasant surprise from a winery I pretty much have learned to dismiss. What I don't like about Beringer is the amount of production they release! They scare me when their wines are available from Rite Aid to your local "booze hound" liquor store...

Carob, cola, herb, freshly sawn oak and earth all pop on the rather intense nose that features dried raspberry fruit. Bright and crisp one entry with lovely earthy and slightly vegetal nuances up front followed by a nice raspberry and mulberry midpala...

Thailand is a tough place for wine. According to an article in the Phuket Gazette, the country's small wine-drinking community remains so because of limited production and high taxes which make premium wine prices too high for the average wallet. “While there is a perceived demand in Thailand for the fermented grape, the industry is also metapho...

Texas is not known to be a particularly forward wine state. We have only allowed wine to be shipped from out of state to private addresses in the last couple of years. The laws are written such that if hard liquor is served, a restaurant cannot allow you to bring in your own wines. Since wine is a huge contributor to a restaurant's profits, m... Read More

What makes the typical Chinese consumer drink wine? A trio of Chinese winemakers shared their insights about this question with CNN reporter Kristie Lu Stout during a roundtable discussion at a Chinese winery this past month. Community is an important factor in the wine drinking experience, Ruby Red Fine Wine founder Simon Zhou said during the ... Read More
I don't know if anyone else here has a taste for Calvados, but to me it's great stuff and a favorite, ever since I first ran into it at a working class zinc bar in Paris as the shot accompaniment to a demi tasse. Soon graduated to the better stuff, drunk after dinner most frequently, but even as an aperitif (and an accompaniment to oysters as I ... Read More
My family moved to California when I was 3 1/2. The wine industry was nascent, or the fine wine business was. We drank small glasses of beer with tacos, burgers and pizza on weekends, even as kids. My mother cannot remember a time when I did not like beer. On Sundays, we had wine with our dinner (eaten in the traditional afternoon slot, foll... Read More
Mine started about six years ago when I met my wife. We played volleyball in an adult league against each other and hit it off at the bar after. We never drank wine together (only lots of beer) and the subject never came up. We had been "dating" a few weeks when I invited her over to make us dinner. She said she would bring a bottle of wine.... Read More
There's a new sheriff in Australia's wine marketing town. This past month, Andreas Clark, Acting Chief Executive Officers of the Australian Grape and Wine Authority (AGWA) announced that former Woolworths Liquor Group National Merchandise Manager Stuart Barclay was appointed General Manager of Market Development. “We're very pleased Stuart has ...

Powerful zin. Not for the faint of heart, this zin packs a whollop at 16.2% alcohol! Raspberries and black cherries on the nose and lingering dark chocolate and cherries on the palate. Nice legs, hansome bottle. 2004 is right at it's limit, so look for cellared bottles but expect dry and sugared corks. Push down slightly to release stuck cork an... Read More
We are looking for great values, and you can find them from just about every region on earth except for a small handful of regions that seem to only do well with wines that start at what no one I know is calling a value price. On the flip side, there are many wine producing regions around the globe that seem almost incapable of cracking through ... Read More
