Fine Wine and Liquor
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...

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...

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...

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...

In the Bay Area and in the greater LA area, the choices are pretty huge, but that doesn't mean everything is easily available--more on that below. BevMo is headquartered here, and its ancestry can be traced back to the beginnings of a wine program at CostPlus and to Safeway's launch of Liquor Barn. Short version is that Steve Boone more or less... Read More
2013 brought new mega wine/beer/cigar stores to the Portland, Or./Vancouver Wa. area. We went from going from little wine shops with limited selections to 2 stores with over 2500 different wines each.This is nice because you can plan ahead, check your wine rack or cellar and go on line to pick your selections. Once you've determined what you wan... Read More
In a previous posting, I had shared some of the white Rhone-styled wines Australia produces. In this first of 2/3 posts, I'll share my thoughts on the red wines. First up are the wines from New South Wales and South Australia. Basically, Hunter Valley and the Canberra District for NSW, and McLaren Vale, Barossa and Eden Valleys for SA. There was... Read More
RRP$30. Fruit for this wine was sourced from Bannockburn, situated further inland away from the cold Antarctic winds. Matured in new 4 year olf Nevers French oak barriques for 16 months. A lovely dense fragrance of blackcurrants, red berries, sweet baking spice and cedar. A full-bodied wine, high acidity with maturing supple tannins. 14.5% alc.... Read More
Being one of the largest privately owned winery, Scotchman’s Hill is one of the best wine producers of the Bellarine Peninsula, just 30 mins out of Geelong (about 90 mins from Melbourne). It produces quality, cool climate wine but not just with fruit grown off their 250 hectares of largely fertile volcanic soils of black clay with basalt. Their ... Read More
Yes, retailers (and government liquor barns) love to use the reviews of one vintage to recommend you buy the product in any vintage whatsoever. Since the respondents here are, in my experience, very aware of quality and what tends to contribute to quality, it is, well, annoying to be treated an an anonymous median value when it comes to wine ap...

Ok, sucker that I am, I got lured back into the 5-cent sale at Bev Mo. UUgghhhh. I spend a good hour looking over all the wines on the sale online. Along side the wines, are reviews by Wilfred Wong. Now, any of you who know me from here know my rant with WW. BevMo (Beverages and More) is a SF bay area chain, extending into other areas of C... Read More
Hi Guys:In my ongoing saga of trying to learn how to cook, I'm planning on giving lobster thermidor a whirl soon. I'd like to pair it with 2-3 wines, mostly as a pairing experiment to see which works best. Any ideas? I was thinking I could potentially combine the dinner with the vintage VS NV champagne combo I've been meaning to do...other ideas... Read More
